Spring Pine Cones

I'm not into bright colours. I'm the type of person who's outfits are mostly black. The one who's home interior is neutral.

But just lately I've felt the pull of the brightness of spring shades and I've been on the look out for easy and affordable ways to bring spring into our home. 

During our recent visit to Sherwood Pines Gruffalo hunting Joseph and I felt the need to collect a few pine cones, much to Daddy's annoyance! Pine cones are easily associated with Christmas and the festive period but why not give them a spring makeover?

Gruffalo's Day Out

From the usual scrolling of social media I discovered that there's currently something afoot in the deep dark words, as adventures are lurking and there's Gruffalos to be found!

Movie of the week

This week's movie of the week is actually a selection of shorts. Featuring some well loved and known characters, but in a Lego animated format, these shorts are the type of film/program you can pop on when you want to pee in peace or make a cuppa. 

This week's movie of the week, and therefore the thing we are currently watching over and over with our two year old son, is Frozen: Magic of the Northern Lights.

This week's movie of the week, unlike most of our previous ones, is a current, still at the cinema movie! It also involved Joseph's first trip to the cinema!

This week's movie of the week is Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience!

Where did my mojo go go?

It's been over two weeks since my last blog. The reason being that I seem to have run out of ideas. Don't get me wrong, I have always been indecisive but lately its gone to a whole new level. What to craft, what to write about and even what to have for tea and which loo roll to buy have been a struggle.

Unable to decide on what to write and with no creative juices following I've struggled to blog. Part of me has wanted to stop altogether. So, when the time came for me to submit my monthly post to I faulted. No idea what to write and basically no ideas. I emailed the lovely Sally over at MeetOtherMums and explained how I felt, apologising for the lack of post this month.
