The end of the spring term is whistling towards us at lightning speed. How can it be that we are two thirds of the way through Theo’s first school year when it seems like yesterday that we were acquainting ourselves with the new school routine.

As the Easter holidays close in on us signs of spring are everywhere and I’m impatient for the new season. The tractors have been busy in the fields around the house tilling the soil ready for the new crops (we never know what will spring up where, which I love!) Bluebells are starting to emerge, the ladybirds that hibernated in our window frames have woken up and started exploring and there have even been some lambs for Theo to meet.


The spring sunshine when it has appeared has been wonderful too. Since Alice was born, I often find that my hands are full when I see a moment I want to photograph (and I won’t lie, it’s immensely frustrating) but I managed to juggle the baby on my knee to get this picture in the evening sun (whilst yelling “Don’t move!” at Theo) He was busy eyeing up a pine tree in the distance ready to gather a collection of cones which he later filled the boot of the Morris with. I thought they’d make great fire starters, but he (apparently) has other plans for them…

Oh I just love kids in dungarees! This is a beautiful photo of him. I was saying about school and how we’re two thirds through the first year just the other day. How fast has it gone? Our ‘summer born’ babies are so grown up, and so settled at school already. I’m so proud of them – Theo sounds like he’s doing so well x

What a fabulous photo – he definitely looks like he’s planning something! And I love his dungarees too. #LivingArrows
