…was on Valentine’s Day! Isn’t that so lovely!


Mira painted and glittered the card and I cut out the hearts for a tree to decorate the hall.

It was a really great day with everyone exept my brother in law, ampoule who was learning to save lives with crampons etc on icy mountains, approved so we’ll let him off!


I am quite sad it is over, but have great memories…

Going with the flow

I have been in the happy position of really enjoying my maternity leave with the little ones, prothesis not that I haven’t had my wobbly moments, internist indeed there have been three this week, but they have so been surrounded by laughter and love and creativity that I feel very blessed!


I have been meditating on the breaking free of enclosure, the rising from the ashes, the soaring burst of colour, the wings flexing, beak opening in song, shining…

Painted using acrylics, irridescents and glitter on canvas. You can’t really see the shimmer in this photo but the colour is good.

Mira of course got her hands plastered with paint, but I’m going to turn her work into heart shapes to hang on a valentine tree, and bring it to Jamie’s dedication on Sunday.

She is also learning some basic cooking skills like grating, spreading, tearing herbs, flouring and rolling out…


This is the tomato spirals recipe from the CBeebies website!
