today was the first time in a long time that we had no plans. just the two of us. so first things first. time to get caleb domesticated. ladies i introduce to you the perfect man...


anyone need a hand fitting an ikea kitchen? i swear i could help after building this little baby. i'm not kidding this kids kitchen is hilarious how much it's like the real thing. it's been the perfect remedy for caleb's obsession with opening and closing our actual kitchen cupboards, now he sits happily at his doing the same thing. 

eh the metal pots and pans however maybe not the best move. caleb however is in love. 

metal pans + wooden floor =  banging that would make someone hard of hearing cry

note to self, don't always ignore the age stated on the packaging of kids toys.


okay so i maybe bought a rug while i was at ikea too. was i in the market for a rug you may ask? eh no. we had a perfectly lovely one. so how did i justify this purchase? well it is a summer rug of course! the winter one is now tucked neatly away in the garage ;) ah gotta love trying to justify a purchase to yourself. husband, not so convinced.


beautiful flowers to cheer me up from an equally beautiful friend. thank you lovely lady ♥


flowers go perfectly with my summer rug don't you think? ;)


we dined alfresco on our balcony for lunch, go scotland with the weather :)
i got stuck into cheesey wonder while caleb mostly took his hat off grrrrr




he was fooled for all of five seconds when i turned the cap around. ah the hat war continues.

we then hit the sunshine outside with caleb's walker. unfortunately i didn't take my camera just my phone and then of course my phone battery went. he is so funny with the walker, i must capture it next time. he does this funny waddle as his pushes it along. cute doesn't even come close.

caleb then treated me to a two hour afternoon nap! which i was grateful for as i've been pretty lazy since i've been back, i hadn't even unpacked my case from leeds and liverpool. i just haven't seemed to be able to muster up the energy. well thanks to my boy's siesta i got a lot of jobs ticked off my never ending list.

today has been so chilled and lovely just the two of us. we finished the day off with dinner with daddy and lots of fun chasing each other round the flat. i seriously don't know who's more childish sometimes. (michael's just read this bit and thought it was hilarious as it makes it sound as though it was just michael and i chasing each other round the flat, i can assure you caleb was involved too!!)

just as my tush hit the couch with an ice cold savvy b, thank you husband. i looked  out the window and saw this beauty...


now this might sound silly but i have a thing for rainbows. over the years there's been a few instances which have been quickly followed by the most glorious rainbow. i kid you not. i think this one is from my nana, and i don't care if that sounds daft. sometimes you need a bit of daft  in your life :)

perfect end to a lovely day.

  1. That does sound like a great day. It has been ages since I've seen a rainbow. The one you saw was a real beauty.

    Little man in the kitchen is pretty darn cute!

    1. it was quite funny as i'd just settled down with my wine and there it was. i was just looking at it at first because of how gorgeous and bright it was, then i was like ahhhhhh where's my camera. the picture really doesn't do it justice, it was so stunning.
      Gotta love a man in the kitchen!!
