Spice Racks in the Bathroom

I bought a few Ikea Spice Racks (RRP £3) a while back with the intention of having them in the kitchen but they didn't look quite right & I'm pretty fussy about the way my kitchen looks because I spend so much time in there. They ended up staying on my window sill for a few weeks before I decided that I didn't want to return them anymore & went about trying to find them a home.

A day out - Westonbirt Treefest

Today we took a little trip to Westonbirt for the arboretum's treefest. The last time I went was a few years ago so I was really looking forward to going this year, it might not be everyone's cup of tea but I love it. We were there for 4 hours or so: We listened to some music, watched demonstrations, looked around the shopping tents, bought 2 apple trees from this guy, ate hog roast, ate churros & wandered around the silkwood.

Our garden project - Retaining walls

After starting the foundations we had to wait a week for the cement to dry properly before laying the breeze blocks for the retaining wall. They're hideous but they're sturdy. Eventually I'll buy something more aesthetically pleasing to cover them up but that's not what this part of the project is about. Nothing is particularly gorgeous right now.

Evelyn's 5 month update

I've had a super busy 5 month 'birthday' with Evelyn: I'm utterly exhausted. I fell asleep on the living room floor two hours ago & only just realised I hadn't written today's post. I'm not really sure why I'm so tired but I apologise in advance if very little of what I type today makes sense. My brain is porridge. 

A day out - Slimbridge Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust

On Sunday my lovely parents invited us to join them for a stroll around Slimbridge WWT. I'm a bit of a animal lover & the center is somewhere close by so I've visited it a few time before. This was the first time I've taken Evie however & although she's a bit young to really appreciate everything it has to offer I think she enjoyed the new sounds & smells & when she was awake she seemed really happy looking at the vibrant colours of the plants & birds. I try to take her on a daily walk so we can both get some fresh air & it's great to have places like this nearby that are beautiful & pushchair friendly so that I can have a change of scenery every once in a while.

Baby Outfit - Evie's Favourite

I know that it's not particularly sophisticated but there is so much that I love about this photograph: Evie's chubby thighs, how snug she looks, the fact that she's asleep & obviously her little outfit. I don't buy a lot of clothes for Evie by any means but I do have some that I've had to stop myself from buying in every size & what she's wearing are some of those items so I thought I'd share them with you.
