not so springy spring.


The weather here is still pretty chilly, but we did get...um...one warm day? We thought of nice places we could go and chill out in London, and remembered about Chiswick house. The gardens are free to use and there is a big pond and a cafe. It was very busy as lots of others had the same idea. But is was a lovely day.


apart from that, we've been working on all our wedding ring and jewellery orders at work, trying to keep a tidy flat (which is pretty much impossible with so much stuff and a lazy mum).
I have been addicted to buying storage boxes and things to help organise our tiny space. My clothes have had a massive cull, Im hoping this will reduce the amount of washing too!


But mostly my time has been spent looking after our little one who is not so little anymore. She is sitting up, eating toast solders, almost crawling, saying 'ada' and 'dada', waving hello, and standing up when holding on to something. We are gobsmacked. I wasn't expecting all this to happen at once, she only turned 7 months this week. Slow down Pehr! Just enjoy being a baby when you can!


We've also been out to a few other places, trying to make the most of the dry days. We stopped over at Greenwich park in our camper van. This is one of the most beautiful parks in London in my opinion.


so green and leafy, stunning.


 back at home...


We lowered Pehr's cot as she managed to get up by herself, so we did it the same day just in case. I think she likes it, and she loves clinging onto the side and bouncing up and down.
I need to re-arrange our bedroom a bit as it is chocker block with all our stuff and not that nice at the moment.
And her whale mobile needed a bit of repair after it was pulled to bits!

Good news is that we are generally all getting enough sleep...which is making everything easier : )

    I really enjoy reading your blog. I am recovering from a breast cancer op and not able to do much as the moment so have been reading blogs to cheer me up and yours certainly does. I am amazed you have so much energy to go on your little 'journeys' especially as you have a beautiful little daughter Pehr to look after as well. But you have a good philosphy on life/work balance and that is important as you never know what is round the corner. Live life lots, love always and laugh often. xxx

  4. Artemis, she is so darling. We have a baby girl that was born the same day as Pehr; it is so much fun to watch them grow up "together." Thank you for your lovely photos, and Happy (belated, American) Mother's Day! xoxo

    Little Pehr is just gorgeous, those little chubby cheeks what a beauty!. My little bundle of joy will be one next week .. one!! Where has the time gone?. I think from 7 months the fun begins, she started amazing me almost every day with something new. Which is obviously wonderful but means I can't take my eyes off her for a second.. at least thats my excuse for the lack of housework that takes place in my home!
    I love reading your blog, especially as I'm back at work 3 days a week, a little lunchtime escapism!
