Losing my Temper

Yesterday I lost my rag. I shouted at Potato. I mean properly shouted at him. It wasn’t even over something worth shouting about and inevitably he was mortified and end up in tears and I felt awful.It’s not that I don’t raise my voice to him ever. I’m not that calm a person. I do, however, keep it reasonable and moderate I hope. Yesterday I didn’t.

Little Chefs Week 2 – Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

Grinding ClovesWow! Thank you to everybody who joined in with the first week of Little Chefs. I had a great time reading and commenting on them all.

Special mentions go to Celestial Mum, who shows that you really don't need to put in huge amounts of time and effort to enjoy time with your little ones in the kitchen, and to The Laughing Owl, who shows how it doesn't always go to plan when you try and combine toddlers and baking (try not to laugh).

If you missed the first week of the linky, you can read more about it here.

Coffee Filter Suncatchers

As the weather has turned, we’ve been looking for ways to make the most of our lovely sunny sitting room. We’ve made suncatchers before, but we hadn’t tried using coffee filters before. I decided we’d make umbrella coffee filter suncatchers. It was such a success that we repeated it the next day, to make autumn leaves.

Retro Toddler Dungarees from Beebies Baby Store

I love clothes. I like quirky, bold and fun clothes. I like clothes that make a statement. I like well made clothes made from good quality fabric.

I have a special fondness for dungarees.

Of course, I’m talking about clothes for Potato, not myself. I’ve written before about how difficult it is to buy clothes for a toddler boy. So when I discovered that Beebies Baby Store were selling these gorgeous retro toddler dungarees, I was so excited to try them out.

Trendy Tot Thursday – 16th Oct

I’m still new to this fabulous linky, so I hope you won’t mind too much if I indulge myself with a little nostalgia. It’s rather cold and wet outside and looking back at some of the bright and cheerful outfits that Potato wore over the summer, seems to help banish the inclement weather.
