'p is for pink' by paper pastries

p is for pink, a photo by ♥ paper pastries on Flickr.
My husband has been away with work this week and although I missed him loads I've had a lovely time with my two children. They've been so well behaved and lovely. I did wonder whether solo parenting for that long would leave me reaching for the gin every night (I don't even drink gin) but I had nothing to worry about because they have been great and so much fun. I shouldn't have expected anything less really. I am pleased that my husband is home now though and our family is complete again. Although I think I may miss having the bed to myself tonight. It's funny how differently I sleep when I'm on my own.

This photo has nothing to do with anything really, it's just really pretty and what's the internet without pretty pictures?

Happy weekend everyone.

'Bear Lake Sunrise' by Darrell Wyatt

This photo is so beautiful. The sunlight is just perfect. I love it when the sun bounces of snow like this. In the past I've tried to take pictures of light shining on the snow like this but can't say I've captured anything this stunning.

I hope you're all keeping warm because here in the UK the temperature is definitely dropping. I don't think we'll be getting any snow down here just yet - but those are famous last words are they!!

'The gap' by woodmaniroc

I've been watching the best ever programme on TV recently and am so sad it was the last in the series tonight. It's called George Clarke's Amazing Spaces and it's about making places to work, live or relax in very small spaces. I am fascinated by things like this. I can't say I'd liketo actually live in a tiny space like that - I've done my time living in bedrooms and little flats over the years - but i woud love a little place of my own to hang out in. This programme has made me really, really, really want a beach hut. I think I will definitely buy one when I win the lottery (note to self: start playing the lottery).

I love the colours in this beach hut photo. So sharp and clear and the light is perfect. It's really not helping me get over this beach hut obsession of mine!

'Bright flowers' by Me

I wanted to post this photo of mine today as these flowers are just so damn colourful. I need a bit of colour to brighten up what has been a very grey, cold and wet few days. You've got to love the British weather. In my last post I said give it a few weeks and it'll really feel like it's winter but actually I only needed to give it a few days. I'm now not sure if I'm brave enough to check the weather forecast for tomorrow. Perhaps, I should just accept that I'll probably be all cold and soggy for the foreseeable future! Anyone fancy a hot chocolate to warm up?

'Fallen chestnut leaves' by NikonDigifan

Autumn definitely is the fastest of all the seasons. I've noticed that already those beautiful autumn colours are starting to fade as the trees become more and more bare. I reckon give it a couple of weeks and it'll definitely feel like winter is here.

This is a beautiful autumn photo. Such stunning detail of the water droplets and of course gorgeous colours.

Happy weekend everyone. Hope yours is full of lovely autumn colours. Or indeed spring colours if you happen to live on the opposite side of the world to me!

'The bead box' by Me

My baby boy is starting to get very mobile. He's not actually crawling yet but he's getting everywhere by rolling and kind of shuffling on his belly. This means it really is time to put all the small things away which is really hard when you have a four year old in the house. I can't believe how many little toys she owns, such as Hello Kitty and Moshi Monster figures, Barbie accessories and of course those annoying little toys that come off the front of comics. I have told her that all these kind of things have to live in her room now but we'll just have to see how that goes! Nap time is very exciting though as it means we are free to get out all the less than suitable for a seven month old activities. Today we had the Lego out and the other day we got busy making jewellery with a huge box of beads!

Here is a snapshot of the beads. I am pleased to say that none of them escaped or ended up in our baby boys little mouth!

I think this is such a clever photo because it's a picture of something that is normally known - and loved - for it's amazing colours. The photographer has, however, stripped this peacock feather of it's colours and still managed to make it look beautiful. The black and white, the shadows and the shapes are all fascinating and rather dramatic. Great work.

'My commute' by david barclay

It's starting to get cold outside. This week started off kind of mild but by Friday I could feel the temperature really dropping. I don't think we're anywhere near getting snow yet which I think I am pleased about. I'm not quite ready for that yet. I hope we get a little bit but I can't be bothered with the country going crazy the minute the first snowflake appears. I just want to build a snowman!

I love this photo because it was taken in Canada where they're really not put off by a little bit of snow. It looks freezing cold in this picture but if the title is anything to go by this photographer was still making his way to work!

'So small' by Me

So small, a photo by PhotoPuddle on Flickr.
So what do you think of this photo? I took it when my son was just four days old and I think it's quite a broodiness inducing image! It's hard not to love tiny baby hands and feet. It's funny but compared to this my son's hands now seem huge. And don't get me started on my daughter's giant hands! It's funny how my baby girl suddenly got so grown up over night. Actually saying that there was no overnight as I had my son during the day, but you know what I mean!

This is a really great photo and one that got my imagination running wild. I love it when photos do that! I love seeing things in photos that make other people think I am a bit weird. In this one I see trees hugging. Honestly, it really does look like there are trees embracing. Do you get what I am going on about or am I just a bit crazy?

'A corner of my home' by Me

A corner of my home by PhotoPuddle
A corner of my home, a photo by PhotoPuddle on Flickr.
I love reading blog posts where the blogger has posted a little snapshot of a corner of their home. I like seeing all the little detailsand it makes me really want to see more. I thought therefore that I might like to try a few shots like this. This is one corner of my home that I like. It's probably nothing special to look at but the things in it make me smile. I love the flowers. Hubby is often buying me flowers He does it for special occasions, to cheer me up or just because he thinks I might like some. I love this lamp. There is no story behind it, I just think it looks rather stylish. But my favourite bit is the photo. It's such a special image of my husband and my daughter just going for a walk together. She was only eleven months old but already was so good at walking. Proud mummy!

'kỷ nịm 1 năm cầm máy :)' by [TroJan]

Happy weekend everyone. I hope yours is as bright and colourful as this very summery photo. It makes me want to grab a blanket and sit in the sunshine, except that's probably not a great idea. Even if it is sunny this weekend it'll be freezing cold out and even if it's not freezing cold the grass is sure to be damp. Ah well, indoor picnic it is then. We've had one of those already this week and it's almost as good as an outdoor one!

'42::52' by small::bird

I love this photo because it's me... Well it's not actually me but it could be. Stripy top and converse shoes appear to be my default setting when it comes to clothes. I never really believed in having a "uniform" when it came to clothes but I do seem to have one. If you peek in my wardrobe you'll find seven pairs of Converse and about a zillion stripy tops of various types. This seems like a pretty chilled out image though and the outfit looks great so perhaps my style isn't too bad!

UPDATE: I just had this post open on my computer and my four year old daughter asked "Is that you Mummy?". When I said no and laughed she said "Well it looks like you, that's your top. And are they your shoes?". I think she has just proven my point!

It's Firework Night tonight but I've not actually been hearing many fireworks outside. I think most people got their fill of fireworks at the weekend. Never mind, here is a fantastic photo of a plant that looks rather like a firework. Nature is such a wonderful thing isn't it? And this photographer has captured this little piece of nature so well. Beautiful shapes and stunning sunlight.

Not been taking nearly enough photos recently so I think it's time to dip into the Instagram file again. Here is a favourite picture of mine. It's my son trying toast for the first time. We're not really doing baby led weaning but I am being much more brave than I was with my daughter about giving him finger food and letting him eat things for himself. Toast appears to have become a firm favourite.

'New year' by Novoselov

This evening we went to a fourth birthday party which included a bit of a firework display. I guess that's the cool thing about having a birthday so close to 5th November, you just have to celebrate with fireworks.

Here is a really striking firework photo. The first thing I really like is the fact that it's so bright. So many firework photos are of a dark black sky. I also love that you can see where the firework is coming from rather than just an explosion in the sky.
