Busby // One Little Monkey Jumping on the Bed

Wednesday was a day of household chores; catching up with washing, the Sainsbury’s delivery, changing the bedding etc. Before Children (BC), I hated these days as they’d usually fall on the weekend, and in reality all I wanted to be doing was relaxing after a busy week at work… I quite enjoy these days now I’m not working full-time, as it gives us a chance to potter around the house; we don’t have to rush off anywhere and we can spend some quality one-on-one  ...

Busby // Tractors

Busby is tractor-mad, so it’s quite fortunate that my in-laws discovered a local farm that not only has (mini) toy ride-on tractors, but that also has a big one in their field for children (and adults!) to sit in.

We even found an entrance to a fairy house in a tree, which she was completely awed by.

Family // Our first weekend in Yorkshire

We’ve been in Yorkshire for a whole week now, and it has flown by! I don’t think the impending arrival of Christmas is helping matters… and the fact that I haven’t really got much sorted for the festive season… nor for Busby’s 2nd birthday. Why does time always speed up when you have lots to prepare?? These things have a funny way of sorting themselves out though – so I’m sure I’ll be feeling better about it all soon! Fingers crossed!  ...

Busby // Ice Cream

Yesterday Busby and I said “farewell” to one of my oldest and closest friends… well, not “farewell” really, more “au revoir!” because we will see her again, it might just be a few months until we’re back in Sussex. We all went to Bill’s in Lewes for lunch. If you haven’t ever been to Bill’s before I would whole heartedly recommend breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea AND dinner there (maybe not in the same day  ...
