Highlights

A while ago Conor and I made a little lantern to put on his bookshelf. It makes a nice dim and cozy light.
Even though he knows it’s just paper, it looks like it comes to life when the light is on... and so we like to imagine it’s us inside, reading a story, and Sooty sitting on the window sill 😁

Watson.
He’s 3 months old now.
We found him when he was 5-6 weeks old, stuck inside the chasis of a parked car in Tesco.
He’s pretty bold and cuddly and naughty and funny... and driving poor Sooty and Shadow a bit nuts too... #kittensofinstagram #kitten #rescuedkittens #animallovers #tabbykitten

Hana picking the blackberries for a scrumptious apple and blackberry cake.

Another lovely day cycling around and making the most out of this weather while it lasts!
I’m planning to work on more cards and tin whistle cases but leaving those for when the rain comes!

Our chicks are not chicks anymore... they hatched around the 1st of May, so they’re nearly 5 months now.
So tamed and friendly, they’re real pets. Looking forward to their first eggs!

My evening walk today. I took a stroll down the road, over the causeway, to the Martello tower. 
Swipe for the sounds of a robin, redshanks, bees and the tide coming in.
Magic.

A morning to myself...
I should make sure to do this more often, clearing my head off and breathing in pure nature.
Makes me feel strong for whatever may come. 💪

I love dragonflies. We found this one in Craggaunowen. It seemed it was in trouble in the water, so scooped him out so it could dry on a rock.
Amazingly stunning!

One of those titles you know it’s always there but never pick up...
Hana got this a few weeks ago in @charliebyrnesbookshop , it’s a lovely edition in a series of children’s classics. I’d buy many more just because the covers are so pretty!!!
We’re reading it together the nights when I’m not at work. Lots of new words for her and a whole different style of writing which she seems to enjoy anyway... #summerreading #childrensclassic #littlewomennovel #louisamayalcott #readingtokids #raisingareader #bookworm #booksofinstagram

My daughter loves graphic novels so when I discovered that Northern Lights had been adapted I jumped into it! I can’t wait for her to read it and share the joy.
Having read all the books and letting my imagination do the work, I find the illustrations aren’t as elaborate as I would have expected. However, I think it covers a good deal (so far) and keeps the reader interested.

The chicks are growing and they’ve moved into their own coop out in the garden now. But they still like Hana’s cuddles...

Our chicks are getting bigger... they’re all feathered now with just a few tiny fluffy bits on their heads.
Swipe to see how they’ve changed over the last 5 weeks. We got them when they were roughly 5-7 days old, we don’t know for sure...
Louie is the darker brown one, Daisy the lighter brown and Pip the white one. We think Daisy is a hen but we are not sure about Louie ( or Lou?) and Pip...
Any experts out there???
We’ll have to wait.
I’m afraid we’ve got some bad news about our rescued hens, two of them didn’t make it... but the other two are going strong and we’re confident they’ll bloom into beautiful sturdy hens.
