Days in the country

More pics from the Cotswolds. Can't wait to go back there. Happy weekend people!


Squares and rectangles

Over the Easter break we spent a weekend in the Cotswolds. It's been years since we've been, and for Oomoo it was like being there for the first time. He was only two the last time we brought him there, and he couldn't remember it at all. Needless to say he fell in love almost as soon as we arrived. Once there we went on long rambling walks, flew his kite, explored the ruins of a Roman villa, got chased by a herd of young bulls, and read loads of Asterix & Tintin comics. And me, I took a lot of pictures of windows - ha! The next post will be a little bit more representative of our time spent there, I promise :)


Spring has sprung

Why hello there! Sorry for the absence; it's been a long Easter holiday over here. About a week ago the weather turn more spring-like, which made all the difference. I don't know how it is for you, but when I find myself in the middle of winter it always feels like spring will never come. And then one day it does, and it feels unreal, like how could it possibly be sunny and warm?! Huh?? These days spring is my favourite season; for years it was autumn, but now the season of re-birth and hope is the one I most cherish. So, in London, there's really no better place than Kew Gardens to witness the explosion of new life, or growth I should say... Anyway, we went there with friends last weekend and it was just beautiful. The kids and the grown ups loved it, and I can't wait to go there again. I'm promising myself that we must go there during every season of the year from now on.
