Dear Olive,
Our weekend was a very lovely, well-paced affair. Kind of mirroring life in general at the moment, where it feels like everything is just chugging along steadily. I'm getting lots of work, but getting lots of time with you too. Our car's broken down, but our friends loaned us theirs. The power was out, but then it came back on. There's nothing fancy happening, but nothing dislikable either. I must be Even Steven! It's a good feeling.
1. Shoulder rides to the pub.
2. Running with balloons.
3. Best jumper ever?
4. Flowers at the market. We came home with the purple bobbly ones. (Chosen by you, our resident purple freak.)
5. You always take about 20 books to bed, and I hear you turning pages before you fall asleep. Regrettably, day sleeps are on their way to becoming an every other day occurrence. Crap! Although on the plus side, it does mean you're in bed around 7.30, which is bliss compared to the usual 8.30/9. (See? Even Steven.)
6. New slippers to keep little tootsies toasty. (Thanks Kate!)

Shoulder rides to the pub?!? Awesome.

My shoulder rides are usually on the way home from the pub... and more often just thrown over one shoulder like a sack of flour ;)

Gorgeous fashions in this post, Kel. The dress, jumper, slippers - divine!

Glad you've got a good steady rhythm happeneing. Yay for a balance of work and Olive! xx

We are very Even Steven around here lately too. Maybe it's the change of season. We are coming into Spring over this side, like bears from a loooong slumber. Even Steven Season.

Olive - when you're bigger you'll be taking those shoulder rides home from the pub instead! Possibly with balloons. The dress and the jumper are amazing. And the shoes!!

Little bookworm. xx
