Happy Monday!

How are you? 

I'm fine. Last week we had an unexpected death in the family so it's been a really sad week and a reminder we should enjoy every minute with our loved once as you never know what's round the corner.

This weekend we have been tackling Cooper's bedroom. It's overflowing with clothes, toys and books, so it was time for a good clear out and time to re-organise. He went to bed really pleased with the new layout tonight.



The wee boy has been helping me in the kitchen this weekend too. Today he helped me make pancakes and he made us a slow cooked potato and haricot stew in a spicy tomato sauce for dinner. It was real comfort food. We enjoyed it with some buttered bread. I'll share the recipe later this week.
