On The Balcony


We have been enjoying the glorious weather, which has finally arrived! You never know how long it’ll stick around for in this country, so you have to make the most of it. Bertie would happily play with water all day long, so he’s quite happy out on the balcony with a plastic box of water and some things to pour with. As you can see in the last picture, all that pouring and sunshine is quite hard work for a 2 year old - this is a live post - he’s still there sleeping right this minute (detrimental to bedtime, no doubt)!

Thank you so much for all your Copenhagen tips! You have all been so very helpful - what a fantastic response - wowzers! I’m going to start putting together a list of ideas now. Very happy :) on Wednesday, I’ll announce the winner of the goodies!

    1. Hi Amy - hope you’re enjoying it too! His hair is still pretty blonde - deceiving pictures, perhaps. I think he will get darker as he gets older - believe it or not, he’s 1/4 Indian and 1/8 Burmese!!

    2. As long as it is refreshing rain, for like...one day...then back on track with the sunshine ; ) our house is like an oven, and our garden is infested with flies from the farm...a swimming pool would be SO nice right now! wish i could fit in them tubs ;P

    3. Ha, yes I wish I could too! Oh boo to the flies. We had a serious ladybird infestation last year, but 'touch wood', they aren’t around at the moment. They were everywhere - Maisie had 30 in her room at one point :( I don’t like ladybirds!

  3. Lovely colours in these photos, they are just so fresh and breezy! Our weather has just turned from baking sun to pouring rain - just in time for the evening which is a bit typical I'd say!

  8. That is how I always feel after a hard day playing in the sun. It's so rare around here I think I just use up all my energy on excitement!
    Such a lovely idea with the Copenhagen thing, my family went when I was younger but I can't say I remember much. I'm planning on making a trip up through all the Scandinavian countries next Spring so would be great to see what tips you get.
    Here's to plenty more sunny days :)
