Coinneal na Nollag

Lasfaidh mé coinneal na Nollag,
Agus cuirfidh mé í san fhuinneog,
Ag fáiltiú roimh Mhuire is an Leanbh,
A rugadh sa stábla fadó.

Wrapping presents

If the bell fits...

The best Christmas ad ever, back on our radios again.
And now Roo loves it too, listening out for the sound of the train.

(Close your eyes and listen. The Christmas tree in the picture is just distracting.)

Sunshine and clouds

A sunny dampless day
Lots of fresh air
Rehoming cheery little flowers
How could we be grumpy on a day like this?

de de de de de,
ooo ooo ooo ooh!
little hand waving 'hello'
smiling chubby face
my littlest baby communicating

I'm back!

Here he is- a bit bedraggled and very wet, but ok. Thanks to St Anthony for finding our little dog. He wasn't gone long, but it was raining very heavily and he hates getting wet, so when we hadn't responded to my and Roo's impassioned calls, i began to picture all kinds of worst-case scenarios. And i realised i'd really miss him if he wasn't around.
(By the way, Maria, he and your dog share their name!)

'I can cook!' Here's Roo making another lovely meal from CBeebies' great show, I Can Cook. So far he has made Savoury Bites, Easy Peasy Pizza and today, Katy's Lasagne. All very tayshty and eaten eagerly -even the green bits. I never thought I'd hear him say, 'mmm, chives!' before popping the offending green (and suspiciously oniony) morsel into his mouth.
Quite remarkable.

Project nua

Old project beagnach criochnaithe,
ceann nua needed on the horizon,
to help me finish.

A dry morning, autumn walk with my boys, last honeysuckle (woodbine to Granny) in the air, berries lining our route, rosehips, sloes, elderberries and of course, blackberries (to go!).

3 year old laughter and surprise, strawberry jelly with sprinkles, cupcakes with strawberry jam and cream, oozy chocolate icing, birthday candles
Bab bab bab. Ffffff. Baby noises. First language.

Lovely news from the other side of the world. Talking baked beans happily gobbled up. Sweet pea scent.

Bellinis, baby belly laughs, raspberry cream Victoria sponge, messages from friends, Roo saying 'Hup, hup hooray' after the Happy Birthday to you song... all adds up to my Birthday!
