The beginning of a long weekend at Mum’s…

teddy and i picked miss sophie up from the train station late on friday afternoon. i was so excited to see her, after she’d been away travelling round asia and australia for so many months. we all spent most of the weekend camped out in mum’s kitchen, with plenty of food, pimms, and endless hours of talking to catch up on the months we’ve spent apart. can’t think of a weekend i’ve enjoyed more in a long, long time.

below: we sat out in the garden to catch the last of the sunshine.

below: i love how expressive my mum is when she talks. i think here she was demonstrating ‘important shoulders’ :)

below: the ugliest, bobbliest strawberries. so different to the punnets of perfect ones we found at the garden centre!

below: ted found a football to play with in mum’s garden, but got disheartened when he couldn’t manage to fit it all in his mouth at once. look at that sulky face!
below: still in love with the blossom. these branches were particularly fine…

    What a lovely post. I adore the blossom, and lovely family pics, and of course Teds sad little face. Minty feels the same about footballs…
