I don't really read blogs anymore.  Occasionally I might follow a link I see on Instagram but not often. Do you read blogs anymore, or have they had their day?

When I started blogging (7 years ago!) it was to document my our days.  As a way to keep our memories safe, to record all the little things which signposted our lives. 

But now I feel torn. Brodie is 9 now and in a few years will no doubt be taking his own part in social media.  Is it right for me to keep including him here?  Should I ask his permission?  

I suppose this is why in part, posts are few and far between these days.  I've used the kids as my writing material for so long I'm not sure if I have anything else to say.  Or have the confidence to say it.  I still have lots of photos to share though.  And a preschooler who is far to busy with dough to pay attention to me.  As an aside if you know little children Djeco dough is the best ever.  We usually pick it up in Waterstones. 


Easter 2018

The photos I took last year at Easter remain some of my favourite ever, not least because Baxter was wearing a bunny tail. Click here for those beauties

This year the weather did not co-operate for decent outdoor photos. And we forgot about the bunny tails, but it was still a lovely family celebration. Kids are still massively into the egg hunting. Massively.

And I'm still into watching them. 


I want us to have many, many more egg hunts please.


I feel like we've been wintering a long time.......

I'm not one of those people who hates winter. I mean I hate being cold but by the magic of modern technology I'm rarely actually cold. I don't mind grey days and dark nights really. I like hot drinks and knitting marathons a lot so it all balances out.

But I have to say I'm feeling a bit meh. There are lots of exciting things on the horizon for the year ahead but just now they feel very far away.

The kids have no problem with long, lazy days at home so it's not like I feel I have to entertain them. And I'm sure I've mentioned before I don't really have the cabin fever gene, I'm a homebird who doesn't get antsy to get out after a while. Well maybe a really long while.

And I could always start a new crafty project, or finish one of the many in progress but for some reason I don't want to. I don't know what I want.

Tell me, how do you get through these not quite spring yet days?

And Baxter in the snow, because even though it's cold, it's fun, fun, fun.
