Space in the chaos

A typically Jenna moment, utter concentration as she inspects the catkins on our contorted willow.
The contents of Morgan's pockets after a walk to my Dad's house. Two pence, pebbles, a hair clip, a crayon, a button, and a knitted strawberry! Well, why not?
The living room in standard mid-afternoon chaos.
Projects-in-progress of the moment, felt birthday crowns for two little girls.


  1. Hehehe, I keep promising myself that I will keep the lounge tidy and encourage Rye to tidy up when he's finished playing with one toy and moved onto something else.......

    never works out; my lounge is a death trap to adults at the moment lol.

  2. Thank you so much for posting the living room photo.. i needed to see that. I kep worrying that it is only my house where so much stuff we gets pulled out every five minutes lol!

    Love the pic of Jenna too :)

  3. The whole kitchen unit area has been pulled out so that Jenna could make a den behind it! And note the chairs in the middle of the room - this is often a play vehicle of some sort, but today they were playing hairdressers. Note also, stuffed cat lying on the radiator in perfect lazy kitty pose. The genius of the creative child in action.

    I'd love to say they DID willingly clear away afterwards, but there was coercion involved in the form of "we're not eating tea til I can see the carpet!". ;)

  4. Hi,

    Just discovered your blog and it's so refreshing! Really nice to see a normal family house instead of something very immaculate :)

    Your girls sound lovely, I have two as well.

Penny for your thoughts? :)
