Invitation to Play: Threading Colours

Occasionally, while Potato naps or once he’s asleep in the evening, I try to set up something new for him to play with when he wakes up.

I’d seen something like this on Pinterest a while ago, so I’ve been collecting the materials for it for a while.

When He Grows Up

Potato is 2 years and 2 months old.
Like most toddlers, he shows aptitude for and interest in, a huge range of skills and pastimes. Like most toddlers, what entertains him for hours one week, barely turns his head the next. Where one day he shows progress with something, the next day he seems to have forgotten all about it.

I spent the day as ground-crew, hugging them as they set off on their challenge, and again to welcome them back to earth.

Heart on a Plate

This weekend was really lovely. D has been home, unexpectedly, since Friday night, for work. He's only here until tomorrow morning, but as we weren't expecting to see him until late August, we've been making the most of it.

Body Image

I am really annoyed with myself this evening!

Potato and I have just got back from almost 2 weeks of holidays. We had a brilliant 5 days with good friends in Centre Parcs and then flew straight off to glorious Mallorca for a week in the sun with my parents.
