wee baby j - so pleased to be at the cinema, sharing a sofa and eating snacks with his big bro. we like toddler time at the komedia. we saw animated short films as part of the london international animation festival. i particularly enjoyed this animation made with plastic sign letters!
o-o - the last stegosaurus on earth... wearing osh-kosh dungarees bought (along with many other bargains) at the nursery summer fair. last week i liked this patch (reminded me of my little sister).

o-o - absorbed. reading in jubilee library. you can see kate malone's wall of a thousand stories installation in the background. 
wee baby j - peeping over the makeshift fence, watching big brother (and, in this outfit, representing the lollipop guild?!). bless his sweet little glowing ear. 
last week i liked long shadows and these big sisters.

DIY hanging loo roll storage

we had nowhere to store our bulk bought loo rolls. piling them up at floor level meant that they were within reach of wee-j-the-loo-roll-shredding-andrex-puppy-baby. i decided to utilise the dead space behind the bathroom door by making some hanging storage, here's how; i screwed a hook into the door, cut a cross in the top of a tennis ball using a hack-saw, shoved one end of an elastic bungee into the tennis ball (i had to cut a piece of the hook off with the hack-saw to get it to fit!), threaded the loo rolls on and hung the bungee from the hook, hey presto!

dirty feet is summer. as fake as blue candy. dust bunny. sandi we salute you. too many blue ice pops.
