etsy treasury featuring some fab things for kiddo (and mama!). love the crocheted harness although not sure it's really the done thing to hang bells from your toddler these days (kitty kiddo!). we're saving up for a kitchen transformation (at the moment the cabinets are plastic wood and the floor is fake terracotta tile lino - shudder) but if i did have some spare cash i would be treating o-o to some of these lovely items. the poor lad's had a fever for the last few days and hasn't been his usual self at all, but this morning the illness seems to have progressed to the snot boogler stage and he is much more chipper.
and spring appears to have sprung at last - hurrah!

we've been on our half term holidays to sutton hoo and manchester. sutton hoo was snowy, o-o enjoyed looking for the footprints of the big bad mouse.
spider crab. for years i thought that the spider crab might be waiting for me during seaside paddles (fear not dear readers, i have since learnt that this species is japanese and not native to british waters!). after the museum we decamped to the RNCM (granny va-va's spiritual home) for coffees and hot chocolate. o-o was delighted by the marshmallow, cream and chocolate flake topped extravaganza purchased for him by grampy m. sugar-rush-tastic.

this morning, super inspired after seeing our pal, miss pea creating and inventing using her makedo kit we made a GUP-O just like the GUP-A in the octonauts. o-o set sail to rescue dashi (his first love?) who had been swallowed by a whale shark.

happy friday fellow tea sup-ers and biscuit dunkers. i'm enjoying a delicious brew while m baffles himself trying to work our just how they got the amazing footage in this documentary. in a mo we will watch episode two of 'birdsong' (avian theme?) although i am disconcerted by the male lead's strange blue lips.
rather giddy with excitement to have my 'dunk' print featured in this round-up of splendid, biscuit-y art, homewares and suchlike. i'm particularly coveting the 'family favourites' tea towel and my dear friend rach bought us a pair of tunnocks mugs for christmas. thankyou claire for including my work.
have a lovely weekend and wrap up warm against those siberian weather fronts.
