Home Life Project – May

Home Life Project – May

This weekend has been a really hectic one for us. We only had about two hours across the weekend where we were all in the same location, so taking photos this month was my hardest challenge yet. Alice stayed away at her cousins for two nights, Theo for one and Jim and I had a night away (whoop!) at a friend’s birthday.

I chose to document Saturday which begun with a monthly work party in our local community woodland. Theo found a really large woodlouse who he named Ben, and there were cakes at tea break!

Then we stopped at my sister’s for an hour to drop Theo off and see Alice who was enjoying her new retro bargain buggy in the garden…


And finally we drove on to the hotel for G&T and a quick change before the party…


I’m hoping next month is a slightly quieter weekend!

Aww I love this month, although I do love seeing your home it’s nice to see sunshine filled pictures. Love the look of the G&T and little ones face in her pushchair. Have a great May, looks like a great start X

What a gorgeous time! Ben is huge right enough!! I’m also wondering how poor Stephen survived being charge of tree and grass duties. Loving the new hair and glad to see you got a drink in xx

The woodlouse made me smile as Daisy is picking up insects all the time now and naming them. Alice has grown so much and is so cute and love that last one of you and Jim. What a lovely weekend. Hope you don’t mind but I took photos last weekend as was away this weekend but still wanted to join in x

Not at all. I should have done the same thing if I’d thought about it! 🙂
