Mummy Loves: Spring!
at last, a new day has dawned! the sun is out for more than 5 minutes and it hasn't rained for 3 whole days! mummy is rejoicing! it looks like spring is finally here and so out came the bright orange shoes mummy has been reserving for an occasion such as this! spring is so pretty, with all the flowers everywhere which i love to pick and litter the house with. mummy's favourite spring thing is seeing all the cherry blossom trees in full bloom. They just look & smell divine.
mummy has finally decided after more than 20 years of living in this country that she hates winter. maybe it's because this was her first full winter as a stay at home mum. she really couldn't dress up at all. everything had to constantly be covered in coats. and it rained. every. single. day. maybe a slight exaggeration, but it rained a lot. she's already thinking up her AW15 wardrobe to enable her to navigate this situation with a smile on her face. either that or move to australia as our aunty (mama) carol keeps trying to convince her & daddy to do. the snakes though, the snakes. mama carol actually said to mum - "don't worry about snakes, thats no big deal in Aussie! every house has one lurking in their loft." i'm not sure that attempt at reassuring mum helped the situation.
in the meantime here in the uk mummy is embracing all that spring has to offer. yesterday we actually went out for that family walk mum & dad have been talking about since we moved in here 8 months ago. sigh. at least it happened! it was fun, we got to climb a mountain. mummy says it's a hill? it's a mountain! judah enjoyed riding my pink scooter as i cycled on my birthday bike which hasn't seen the light of day since...my birthday, roughly.
today we went to church which is mums major dress up day. she normally steers clear of jeans at the weekend as that is her schoolrun uniform. but today she made an exception as she had this fun new top she wanted to wear and it went perfectly with these jeans & her orange shoes. she got it from h&m after noticing how very masculine her wardrobe had begun to look. she's now actively seeking out ruffles & tops with some sort of lace detailing / crochet.
incidentally judah enjoys chomping on those shoes. i don't know if it's to do with the orange colour that reminds him of a juicy, zesty orange, or the suede point that caresses his rear gums so perfectly. either way, when it goes quiet in the house, we know we'll find him relaxing in a corner with one of those shoes in hand!
we loved photographing in front of this pretty green gate near my uncle Tamba's house, who incidentally found himself having to do the photography on this occasion! what a sport!
