Ordinary Moments

Kiki and Mr Nibbles the guinea pig

trampoling in the sunshine


happy chickens

Phew!! Spring came! I think everyone in the UK breathed a sigh of relief this past weekend when the sun came out, the skies were blue and the rain stopped. It was blissful. To be able to go outside and not be drenched/frozen. To have the doors and windows open and my house full of fresh air. The kiddos were SO excited… they were outside as soon as they were out of their beds, bouncing on the trampoline, swinging, sliding, playing with the guinea pigs.

For the first time in months, I felt alive. What a difference sunshine makes hey! I felt energised and full of plans. I spent most of Sunday out gardening. Clearing the debris from the winter, re-seeding the lawn, clearing, tidying, digging over veggie patches. The chickens were very happy to… me gardening and moving things mean they get lots of bugs, slugs and worms to eat!!

I am so ready for Spring and Summer. Life feels so much easier when we can get outdoors – after a winter shut up inside, we’ve all got a touch of cabin fever, tempers were short and we’d had enough. Here’s to many more days outside.

    That’s exactly how I have felt these past few days!

    To have fresh air in the house and feel a bit of warmth… Heaven.

    Ah, chickens! And guinea pigs! We’ve been spending lots more time with our rabbits this week, I’m always a much better animal carer when the weather is nice. Though I’m sure they secretly like the time away from the over enthusiastic toddler on rainy days. x

  3. March 12, 2014 / 13:25

    I totally agree. It’s so hard not to become sluggish and fed up in the grey, cold winter months! The blue sky and sunshine have been so welcome. Love your pictures…the chickens look great!

  4. March 12, 2014 / 13:26

    I am so ready as well! Unfortunately we are getting more snow today. But it will be here eventually!

  5. March 12, 2014 / 14:41

    The trampoline picture is so wonderful! Love all those sunny daffodils!

    Spring has arrived for us too, and not a moment too soon!


  6. March 12, 2014 / 17:19

    that first photo is super sweet :) the sun definitely helps me feel better too!

  7. March 12, 2014 / 18:52

    The sun really was so welcomed this weekend, it makes me so much more positive and happy. And getting to make use of the garden when you have kids is so important! x

  8. March 12, 2014 / 19:23

    Love the chicken pics :) We went to the park and had ice lollies, I think it’s the first time in 6 months I’ve worn less than 3 tops at once…

  9. March 12, 2014 / 21:01

    I always long for autumn and it’s inly until the spring raises it’s head to I realise I am craving those sunny days where we can stay out late and play. looks like you had a great weekend. x

      Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found
      a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
      said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
      There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
