Empathy, kindness to lettuces and people

I may have shared this before, but it's a lovely reminder. If we can be this kind to plants, we can be this kind to each other and, perhaps most importantly, to ourselves. ❤️

Farnborough Air Sciences Trust

Otherwise known as the aeroplane museum.

Kids and daddy like the planes. I like the cafe, the articles on women's efforts in the war...and on this occasion the crockery they were giving away (I gave a donation in return). Everyone left happy. Except perhaps daddy who was fearing the increase in household crockery.

Mama 1 toddler 0

Mwah ha ha! I spiked her pancake with pear, vit d drops and multivitamin drops. She ate the whole thing. Mama win!!!

Humour of a two year old

Daughter: got food for you, mama.
Me: ooh, thank you!
Daughter: got a plate here, and an apple on plate... and tea.
Me: yummy tea, thank you!
Daughter with serious look: pig tea, mama! [Evil chuckle]

The sorrows of a sensitive soul

Neighbours are chopping down a beautiful fir tree I've been enjoying since my four year old son was a baby. I looked out at it in the early hours of the night when I was struggling in those early weeks. I'm gutted they're chopping it down (though I totally understand why). Son keeps crying about it too asking me to save it, asking why I can't stop them. It's heartbreaking. It's going on Friday. I plan to let him say goodbye to it tomorrow. I expect tears. He keeps saying he stands under it when it's raining...and asking what will shelter him once it's gone. 😞 He has such a big heart and sensitive soul. ❤️

A happy day

So I braved taking both kids actual swimming yesterday morning and it was great fun! Proud of facing a fear of mine. We'll definitely go again. Spent early afternoon making pancakes so we could have a pre dinner playground trip and it was lovely to get some running around, rain in our faces, forest bathing time. 😍

Where does the imagination go?

Four year old son: mama, look! There's another world in that puddle! Let's jump into it and go into the other world!

Me: so there is, how beautiful! Let's do it!

Son: look, we're out the other side! There's still a forest in this world and it's so beautiful!

😍😍😍 Love his mind and sense of beauty. 😍😍😍

International Women's Day - wishes

To all the women feeling insecure, I wish you love for yourself; to those feeling disempowered, I wish for you the confidence to keep fighting; for those women that are uncertain of their paths, I wish you light to guide your way; and for those feeling discontentment, I wish you wisdom to identify what changes to make, and peace for your hearts. To all the amazing women I have befriended or that have befriended me over the years and to those that have been my inspiration. ♥️ Happy International Women's Day.
