A simple walk around the block

For most of us a walk around the block is a chance to stretch our legs, get some fresh air and clear our heads.

It takes ten, maybe fifteen, minutes and depending on the standard of your block it can be quite run of the mill.

For a two year old however, a walk round the block can be an hour long adventure, full of colour, wonder and excitement.

Throw in a favourite teddy and you’ve secured an afternoons entertainment.

Memories of a former house final part

It’s been a week now since we left our old house and we do absolutely love our new place (more on that in a future blog post!)

As we nudge over that milestone though, I wanted to wrap up the memories’ posts with a few thoughts on the most important thing that happened while we were leaving in our previous home.

Something that as you know is very close to my heart – the arrival of our little girl.
