This little one

…is just too cute. Running and giggling and falling all around Oxford’s Botanic Garden.



I’ve been on the road quite a bit lately; darting around here and there, meeting friends and making the most of the English summer. When I’m on the go I love to zone out and get lost in my own little world of music. Here’s what I can’t get enough of at the moment…


Stumbled upon this beautiful illustrator through the 52 project my sister is taking part in. After discovering she had an online shop I was there in a flash and had bought one of the wonderful prints for a gift in a matter of minutes. It came with this simple thank you postcard. Both the online shop and blog are worth checking out for a burst of inspiration.

Thank you card

Counting down the days…


Ever since this little wonder was born, I’ve managed to pay her and my sister a special visit every fortnight or so…except for now. I’m counting down the days until Boxing day, when we can have a cuddle frenzy for the first time in 6 1/2 weeks. I feel like I’ve missed so much in just this short time and am excited to spend a few days with this inquisitive little person and her repertoire of new tricks! 5 days to go…
