About last weekend

About last weekend4In many ways, the last weekend has been the most productive by far in a very long time. 

About last weekend3

Is it just me or does this balloon look a little odd?

We have been social (not always the case with a new-ish baby): We saw friends, went to a restaurant AND a birthday party.

About last weekend1

I finished a project I had postponed forever: A bit of an IKEA hack for Little L, aka ‘painting a Moppe’.

About last weekend5

We went to the park. Twice.

We (thanks, Big M!) updated the blog. Backup, new theme, some (ongoing) tidy-up work.


And finally, and maybe most importantly, I managed to articulate my current anger and frustration. A few things have been bugging me recently, but I have been too tired and exhausted to find a way to get them out in a way that someone else would be able to make sense of it all. But more of that later…




  1. Wow, I’m impressed! You managed to do activities and do DIY and have a new baby/ My hat is off to you! I am just exhausted driving back and forth some days.

    Need an IKEA hack to distract me, I reckon 🙂

  2. That is indeed a productive weekend. It has been almost three years since I last managed to articulate any frustration, I mainly convey exhaustion now!

  3. Hello lovely! It seems like FOREVER. I too had a DIY project that I have finally got round to finish, the sun surely is to blame/thank for that 🙂
    I like the new look by the way x

  4. I love the feeling of a productive weekend these days. It feels amazingly new and so… useful! You are looking lovely and I’m now finding myself surfing for a pair of bright coloured converse… x

  5. Beautiful new blog and Mama (although that’s not new)…love the clarity a weekend of sunshine and fun can bring x

    What an amazing weekend! I’m proud of my one as well. To be honest, only when you have children you truly understand the meaning of multi-tasking and every house chore (ei. laundry, ironing, hoovering) seems like a little achievement that you should be proud of. AND YOU SHOULD! I realised it doesn’t take much to be happy. A bit of sun, a nice walk and showing my daughter some new things really make my day.

  7. The new blog look is great. Very much appeals to my black and white minimalist eye.

    Just wanted to stop by and say a massive congratulations on your Bibs nomination. Yours was the first and only blog I read for a while and I would never have started my own if it wasn’t for you.

    You superstar!

  8. You have been a busy bee! Can I just say, dodgy balloon aside, you look sodding gorgeous in that piccie!

    The blog looks lovely and fresh and well, I love your photos!

    Muchos love to you and family
