An unusual moment of winter coats and gumboots in the middle of December. We ventured out in the rain to jump in puddles. I'm getting to the point where I can hardly tell the difference between my boys if they've got their back to me or if their eyes are hidden. I can't quite believe that last picture of Kian – he's not even two. I was in two minds to put it up here, because whilst I think it's beautiful, it's a reminder that he growing up so fast. Too fast.

A lovely moment at the end of a strenuous week. Mummy, Mummy, please can you take a picture of me with my orange beetroot?

The moment we found a cicada with its glassy, veined wings on our doorstep, followed by several moments of giggling and whispering between two brothers as they discovered its chirping, buzzing sound whenever they gently touched it. It was as fascinating for me as it was for them.

More fleeting moments.

Joining in with Lou here.


  1. Jumping in puddles, how fun! My Mum is a clean freak so I was never allowed to do this as a child, so it's been a big challenge letting go and allowing Everly to play in the mud and rain. I love this - it's a timely reminder that I need to let her get dirty more often. Oh and that photo of the cicada - amazing!

  2. You have truly captured some magical childhood moments. Beautiful.

  3. Oh, your children are so, so lovely ...

    Thank you for sharing them with us!

  4. What a gorgeous boy, looks like he had fun! Have a great Christmas!
