Its been a busy old week. We managed to enjoy an afternoon of sunshine on the beach this weekend, lots of fun was had splashing and swimming in the sea! 

Charlie: Pays such attention to details, collecting white shells to decorate his sandcastle.

Edie: I love how excited she gets about the simplest things. Strawberry ice cream was such a treat!

Nature in the home: Simple

This week's Nature in the home challenge from the lovely Lou was Simple. I love how simple these tiny white roses are on the bedroom windowsill overlooking the barley field next to our house. They're from a gorgeous arch shaped bush in the garden, and smell divine!

The field next to the house has has a crop of barley in it and we had a little wander amid the field with the children after supper last night. They loved the tickly feel of the crop against their skin. The light was so lovely and soft.

Charlie: Always asking questions, so inquisitive to understand what things are and how they work. 

Edie: Loves a kiss and a cuddle, she is so affectionate.
