Other than being out and about with Joe, and going to my ceramics class, life at home has been ticking along as usual. A bit of gardening, laundry, chores and more chores... I attacked a rather large pile of ironing yesterday and was so glad to see it gone. For now.
We spend time outdoors when the weather allows. Joe now has a little swing in the garden. Everything's starting to bloom, including these sorbet-coloured dahlias. They make me think of peaches and raspberries. Maybe that's because I'm doing a bit of a detox and have cut out sugar. So lots of headaches and cravings. I'm counting down the days.
A sign of summer: lovely Sweet Williams in the house. I have some growing too, but they're in deep, vampy shades of purply red.
Joe's room is really cute. He stands up in his cot now so hopefully will take notice of things I've made, like a nautical mobile with beach finds...
And a garland I made by cutting out some leaf shapes from felt. Total cost: £1.50. Total length: around 4 metres.
We've been reading a lot too. He doesn't have much of an attention span yet though. I've still to find out what happens in Where the Wild Things Are... we actually did it as a school play when I was very little. I remember the masks and tails we wore pinned to our leotards, but not the story.
Maybe I'll just take it to bed and read it myself.
