The boys got very excited and my youngest came out with this little gem.
His theory is that the rain was kissing us all over because it loves us - and that explains why it stopped as soon as we got inside!

Its more of a family room and we spend a lot of time in here, it's also the centre of the house and nicely cluttered in the way I like (my husband doesn't approve - he hates mess!).
This is our picture wall - including photos of my boys when they were a few hours old. We made the patchwork background ourselves using pages from a William Morris calendar and scraps of wallpaper - it was an experiment really but we love it.
We have hundreds and hundreds of books in our house and many bookcases - this is a recent addition (cheap pine painted white) and holds mostly my books, as well as one of my jugs (I have a bit of a jug obsession!)
This is my favourite print in our house - its by Ashley G and says 'Every boy is a superhero sometimes'. We have several of hers now but this was the first and my favourite.

We have actually borrowed most of his books from the library over the last few years but had never read these particular two.
These are definitely my kind of books - gorgeous illustrations, reminiscent of Quentin Blake (another big favourite of ours), the double page spreads are stunning and the stories are sweet and touching.
Most of his books seem to revolve around nature and have a lovely message for children.
If you haven't come across him, he comes highly recommended from this household.
But I am back - with a vengeance! With lots more of our favourite things and little stories about our family life.
I've also started a new blog - dedicated to my cardmaking and general crafty adventures.
Anyway, it's good to be back and Happy Easter!
