16 // 365 : STRANGE. C H I L D
All kids are strange though. That’s the best bit about having kids. Their quirks. Their weirdness. I wholly embrace Eli’s wonderful ways. Until I can’t find Lego figures... and then FIND a “fire extinguisher” filled with missing school socks under his bed. I mean. Whaaaaaat even?! He needs to explain this one. (Hoping there’s missing Lego figures at the bottom of the extinguisher though 🙏)
15 // 365 : LEGO. FOR. DAYS.
You know underneath the *sigh* “okkkkk then. We can play @lego for just a little bit... if we have to”, what I’m really thinking is “YAAAAAS ELI. YOU PLAY WITH THAT LEGO SET AND I’LL PLAY WITH THIS SET! THEN WE CAN PLAY WITH THEM ALL TOGETHER!”😜🤫
Bloody love the stuff😍 Good job really. The house is filled with so many new sets post-Christmas🖤
This set is from Eli’s Auntie @lynzsb & Uncle Colin. It’s a DOUBLE DECKER HOUSE 🙃
PS - While we’re on the subject of Lego. Has anyone seen any Harry Potter sets going cheap? Eli is obsessing after our film marathon and constructed several, very elaborate and delicate Hogwarts Express’. But he, naturally, wants a proper set. Nothing at all to do with me 👀
PPS - you can’t have a #bluemonday when you have ALL THE LEGO❤️🧡💛💚💙 Hope you’re all pushing against the miserable, grey weather (and retail promo’s!) and just enjoying BEING. If you’re feeling a touch of the sadness, make sure you have a bit of ME TIME tonight. I plan on an early night with @britishvogue 🖤

Have kids they said. It’ll be fun, they said 😉
But did THEY say anything about the great “missing fruit” mystery? Course they didn’t. But I know the answer... do not, ever, assume your child ACTUALLY wants fruit portion after fruit portion. I did. Once. And this is the result - found on the stairs. Behold, THE ORANGE SPIDER. (He’s not wrong). Can’t be upset about the use of fruit because it’s actually pretty cool 🙈(and I know he will eat them because he’s addicted).
Oh and if you didn’t already know, it’s 290 until Halloween. He’s counting down, incidentally👀🎃💀
13 // 365 : LAZY. S A T U R D A Y
After weeks and weeks of rushing about here & there, it’s been so nice to just relax and take it easy today💫
Even though he’s #TeamLOTR🧝🏻♂️🧙🏼♂️, @jameshill.tv is enforcing a Harry Potter marathon this weekend✨
We’re currently on film 3 of however bloody many there are👀 But hey ho, I have Christmas snacks to keep me going! 😊
Is it odd that I’m only just watching these films for the first time? 🤔 Which is the best film?

It doesn't matter how simple - or how extravagant - the sentiment of giving and the gratitude of receiving flowers is exactly the same❤
Sometimes, I just grab a £1 bunch for myself and they have the same, desired affect on me. Why? Because flowers are always a good idea 💘
I have a funny feeling that my 2018 squares may be floral-heavy🤔😍
If you had to choose just one flower, what would it be? 💐
New blog post coming up, finally : @londonmothersclub x @bloomonuk🌹
10 // 365 : STARMAN, FOR ALWAYS
Two years ago we lived in Berlin. Two years ago, Eli was at a German Kita, teaching us a thing or two about the German language. Two years ago we started planning our return to the UK. Two years ago Starman “flew up to the Moon”. Two years ago, Eli ran into these 👆🏻apartments where David Bowie once lived (and composed his incredible “Berlin Trilogy”), searching for his Starman.
And Starman, forever he shall be✨⚡️💫💛
