With open arms...thank you




I have been handed a creative blogger meme by the very kind Sarah. I am humbled to be thought of ... this is also a perfect time to thank all you lovely, creative and terribly talented fellow bloggers for all your sweet little words.

I have to tell you all 7 things that you may not know about me:

1. I once slept for 2 nights on a Felucca (could easily be classed a floating mattress) down the river Nile...Egypt is captivating in beauty and history and we just loved it...

2. Before my beautiful son was born and I become a mummy to him...I already had a love for crayons, paints, cooking and crafting, room organisation and toy sorting, cubby making, reading and nursery rhyme singing...in my lovely past life I was Kindergarten Director...I am inspired by childhood development - I love to observe children as they explore, play, learn and problem solve...there is never to much exploring to be had by the little people in our lives.

3. My husband and I lived in London for 2 years...he proposed to me in a little row boat in Hyde park. We celebrated at our local pub with beautiful friends and family - it was a hot summers day...the hottest day on record for more than 20 years.

4. One day I want to spend Christmas in New York with my family - ice skating in Central Park would be amazing (not that I can ice skate)...I lived there for six months and that was not long enough!

5. As I write this post my little one is asleep next to me and I can hear the rain on our roof...I am reminded that I love sleeping to the sound of the rain.

6. I would love to live in a country town with rolling green hills and fruit trees... or by the sea...I desperately want chickens and one of those cute wooden coops.

7. I am obsessed and loving all things white and Scandinavian ... one can never have to much white paint in there life.

This was fun and I would like to pass this creative blogger meme over to:

Happy Monday... we are off to explore the library and maybe jump in a puddle or two along the way. x

great to get to know you a little better, travelling is such an eye opening experience.
hope you got to jump in some puddles too on the way to the library!

forgot to add, we have chickens but don't live in the country, if you have the space, go for it, their free range eggs are amazing!!

Cat said...

White is happy, white is pure, white is great for splatting big blobs of mud on.... Would love the opportunity to jump in puddles with you, miss you terribly. You are so talented, keep it up!!!

Hi Sarah, what a great post. It's so good these things as you are able to learn even more about your blogger friend. Isn't it amazing our lives pre children. I totally identify with you. While you guys lived in London my hubby and I lived in NYC for two years and I'd love to take my boys there. I too adore being creative and getting down dirty with my boys. Unfortunately mine are both at school now but that has not stopped me from doing creative projects with their whole class (usually towards the end of the year when things slow down). My boys are both creative so I think it pays off (even though sometimes I think I should have concentrated on things like "maths" a little more). You sound like the ultimate mum! Enjoy every minute. What an amazing experience sleeping on a Felucca. Incredible.
Rain on the roof too... All lovely things. Pruxxx
