How Quickly A year Passes

Otto is now a year old. This has actually been the fastest year of my life! I took these pictures a month or so ago, when he refused to have his nappy put back on, so we played ‘will he or won’t he pee (or worse) on the floor?’ Fortunately, I won. Anyway, it was getting dark but despite fighting the light, I really like how these turned out. So to summarise one year of knowing Otto - He is the best - such a happy boy. He wakes up happy, loves his family, he loves feeding from me, sleeping next to me, his bother’s toys, and Marmite. He started walking just after he turned ten months, so he is very steady on his feet, despite being a dinky little chap. I’m looking forward to year two, my little friend!

Our Home

A few months ago, our home and a little interview with me was featured in the wonderful 91 Mag. With everything else going on in life, I was rather quiet about it, but noticed that Bertie’s bedroom has been pinned many times, which is nice! It was lovely to be ask to share some corners of our home (awful carpets and all!). Please be assured that our home is very ‘lived in’ and I really did work around the chaos to get some decent shots! Since I took these pictures, we’ve made a few changes and there are more to come, so one day, I’ll share those too.
Have a nice day :)


So I’m trying to get back to updating a bit more here......These pictures go back to late August, when we took the boys camping in Dorset. This is beautiful Lulworth Cove in all its summery glory.

Growing Up

Just catching up on the old, neglected blog. Here is my Bertie, aged 4 3/4 years. The day he started school last month - well, sort of school. Kindergarten. We opted out of mainstream education and he is attending our local Steiner Waldorf school (very fortunate that a state Steiner school opened in Exeter a year ago). So far, so good. He seems to really like it, as do we :)
