some things remain the same. much cake has been consumed and lots of baking done with my little one who still loves to lick the spoon!
but since i last wrote we have had visits from dear family and fun showing them around the places we like to go. i like that now when we speak on the phone and say we've been...say to the farm...that they were there with us too once and can picture it in their mind. there was much tidying and cleaning to do before we welcomed them from over the choppy irish sea...and now i am having a bit of a new season blitz and rearrange at home since they left.
in other news...i got to help a friend as she laboured with her 2nd baby and had the pleasure of holding her beautiful daughter when she was just 5 hours old. so strange to me to encounter such a new little person that way having only held elsa in those precious early times...but what an honour! there seems to be a big batch of baby girls coming in to our circle this year...another is due this month too. so lots of visits and cards and cosy gifts to enjoy making.
this is such a favourite time of the year for me. like spring it holds so much promise and i love the way you can really sense the shift in season almost from one day to the next. not so much like summer and winter when you perhaps just ease in without standing back and taking in how different everything feels.
and to celebrate the loveliness of new seasons and how springtime that has sprung over on the other side of the world jodi is having the most marvellous giveaway. i would very much recommend that you enter too for a chance to win the beauties on offer. i think i'd be heard squealing with delight in australia if i was lucky enough to win these pillowcases! che and fidel is a charming and calming and inspiring place to be and one i'd say go follow all year round.
