Summer is here..

Last week we had rain, hail and snow..in April! You just have to laugh at british weather. This week we have glorious sun, and it’s amazing. This must be what it feels like to live somewhere warm. 

Me and my monkey have been taking full advantage of this glorious weather with lots of nice strolls, visits to our local park and lunching in our garden. What a posh baby. 

Today we used our new picnic blanket for the first time. It was a bargain at £6.99 from T K Maxx, and I just love the print. I made a quick lunch for myself (Avocado on toast with cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, with a drizzle of balsamic). I literally piled it all on some toasted ‘bloomer’ sliced bread, with a little lemon juice and pepper for good luck.

The boy is still being fussy when it comes to food, and we are completely trying baby led weaning now, since he refuses anyone putting anything in his mouth! He is very strong willed already and he is only 10 months old! So for him,  I chopped bite size peices of mozzarella and tomato with some finger sized toasted bread with avacodo.  And this was our lunch.. 

  
  
It was yummy, and I could have eaten more. My monkey on the other hand had a play with all of the flavours and sucked on a few pieces before getting bored. Surely one day he will actually eat?!

It was lovely to sit and enjoy the garden, (despite it being a tad overgrown). It certainly needs some TLC and the husband needs to get back on mowing the lawn. We moved in the day I gave birth, I was far too busy nursing a newborn and don’t think I even stepped outside. I was missing out..
