Our everyday life: week 40 & week 41

We haven’t completely disappeared from the face of the earth, honest!!

Anyway, here we go:

Autumn has definitely arrived, but we are still enjoying some outdoor snack time

Dinner out with my boys, Daddy Pig and lots of colouring pencils. Giraffe is so family friendly!20131005_180842
Another cousin has moved to London! Another reason to visit some new places, parks included. Fulham did well :)

Last week we visited my parents in France. Whilst C didn’t have as many toys there as he would at home, he seemed perfectly amused playing with walnuts ;) Crazy child!

An awesome vintage cookbook my mum found in her village. I especially loved seeing old photographs, postcards etc. tucked inside (just as we do with our own cookbooks).

A return trip to this café – much grumpier child this time, but still lovely to check it out again. We also bought a delicious apple tart for dinner.

Reading some of our favourite childhood stories to our own child – surreal.

My mum is a truly fab cook and I was pretty jealous of the guests of hers who enjoyed her plum tart!

C amazingly charmed all the gentlemen of the village. I only wish I had a photo of them pretending to be ballerinas ;)

I baked traditional scones and a Victoria sponge for a typical English tea party for friends of my parents. Together with cucumber sandwiches, homemade jam and lots of tea, the French seemed pretty impressed :)

Last meal in France before flying home. Terrible, aren’t we?

Someone didn’t want us to leave…

Toulouse airport – teeny tiny coloured lights between these wooden slats. Funky.
