Lately




























This month has been a busy one! First off, Mia has completely toilet trained herself. She turned three two weeks ago and in the last week, has gone from nappies straight onto the toilet, completely bypassing the potty and pull up stage! I am so proud of her and everytime she goes to the toilet, she shouts " i did it!" at the top of her voice for everyone to clap her!

Elle is on her easter holidays and it has been lovely having her at home. We have been out every day on a new adventure and have been doing some easter crafts. I cannot wait to share with you the birds nests we made this week! We have a week and a half left and this week we have a picnic planned, making a teepee in the meadow and spending time with family for Easter. The lilac is blooming in the garden and i have a lilac crown planned this week also. I also want to go back to the rape seed meadow for a self portrait shoot or maybe something with Elle. I have to do some more planning but i am looking forward to it.

I have put Mia's preschool application in for her two start two full days from September in the little preschool attached to Elle's school. I have having days where i am thinking "wow, two whole days to myself to concentrate on my photography" and then i am also having days where i think "noooooooo, she is too tiny and needs to be at home with me!". I felt the same with Elle and she ended up loving preschool. I know Mia will love it and from next September, she will be at school five times a week so i best get used it to really!

I am so happy Easter is nearly here. I have the weekend planned with my family. I am sad as my husband is away working in Scotland over the Easter weekend, but we will have a family day together when he gets back and make is special. I then have a dear friend visiting next week to see the girls so that will be lovely too :)

We have spied bluebells, which are our favourites, so next week we shall be going to our special bluebell woods for a picnic!!! I am overally excited by this :)

We have started making parts of the twig fairy house we have wanted to make all year. I am excited to share little bits with you as we make.
