Mia: watching The Klumps, which she finds hillarious…same sense of humour as her dad!

Joseph: is really not too sure about sand…he’s getting some practice in though before our trip to Cornwall at the end of the month

Picking blackberries in the garden

Such gorgeous blackberries from the garden. They grow wild in a slightly brambly patch. This year they are really early and there are hundreds of them. I picked a whole bowl of berries in about ten minutes! I know that the field behind the garden will have many more. Today’s blackberries became blackberry and apple crumble…a little bit wrong in August, but hey, it has been pretty grey and stormy today, and that justifies crumble and custard! The next batch of berries will become blueberry blackberry jam.

Mia: she has been unwell, so not really in the mood for photos this week. I managed a quick phone camera shot whilst out for lunch on Saturday

Joseph: this photo just makes me smile. After nap-time he plays a game which involves throwing all of the soft toys and cushions out of his cot…my part is to pick them up and throw them back in…whilst he laughs at me

Mia: “And though she be but little, she is fierce.” On first glance an English Rose, but that steely look, (temporary) tattoos and bruised little knees suggest there’s a lot more to Mia than that! I like the symmetry between this and the background of beautiful wildflowers and pink graffiti

Joseph: just the simple happiness of being small and being pushed in a swing
