beautiful post, very nice pictures, and lovely good news


Good to have you back.
Cakes made before breakfast..I hope one was also FOR breakfast,quality control is so important!
Herbs looking good- fresh picked herbs are yummy,just the scent of them outside as you brush them in passing gives so much pleasure.My sweet peas are taking their time too- perhaps we shall get a bumper amount of flowers late in the Summer.Fingers crossed.
Don't worry about toys staying out,or rabbits not having ears...time for snuggles is so much more important.
A large hug for you and your Mum.


Glad to hear your mum is OK, what a wonderful summary of the june!


Glad to hear you and your Mum are doing OK. Thinking of you all lots. Look after yourself.


What a gorgeous haven you have. And glad to hear good news on your mother. x


I have been following your blog for over a year now and find it touching and inspiring. I have never left a comment before - and thank you doesn't quite cover it ... but thank you! I am so glad that your Mum is a little bit better.


I so look forward to reading your posts. They are so cheerful AND colorful. You never disappoint.

Glad your mum is hanging in there. As you said, one day at a time.

So... until your next post. Take care.

What a beautiful view you've got!
I love your warm and cozy pictures of funny socks en colorful crochetworks, makes me smile everytime!
Lots of positve energy is coming your way from Holland, I'll be thinking of you and your family and hope you'll all have a great summer!


Happy to see you again, and SO happy that your mom is getting better!
Really LOVE your everyday photos!!!
Wishing you all the best! :-)


I love the way little man has posted some toys INSIDE the fire guard! My youngest used to do that too! He's all grown up and doing very well at uni now, so that must surely be a good sign of future greatness!!! x


So great your mum's recovering! I do hope you can find the time to rest a bit... Love the pictures of your back garden and the little rabbit :-) Take care, Lucy!


So glad to see you are feeling up to posting again. Thoughts are with you about your mum.
Take care.


I was really glad to hear you are all doing ok. Littlies are VERY good at keeping us busy and ensuring our minds are otherwise occupied!! LOL! As for tidying...why bother? As you say, it's all ready for them again the next time they want to play....a very kind and considerate act in my book!! Hee hee! Cx


Good morning, Lucy! I am so glad everyday life has become more everyday lifish now that your Mum is doing better.

I am with you on the mindless tidying side of mothering and I too wonder if I should be picking things up a little less but, to be honest, the clutter addles my already addled mind so. It's the sweeping under the highchair every mealtime that gets to me. Chuckle, chucke.

Have a lovely summer week.


So pleased your Mum and you are doing ok. Oh isn't it bliss to have some warmth and sunshine again, I was starting to think we weren't going to get one. My my my you are having early starts!!!! The things us Mummy's do.


So nice to hear that your mother is OK. And Little Man baking, and such pretty cakes. Very impressive! Glad that things seem to be almost back to "normal" for you and your family. As always, your photos are wonderful!

So glad to hear your Mum is doing ok. Phew...you can catch your breath now. Lovely post, as always, sweet Lucy. Hugs, xxx


Love the mossy/mouldy wall. Too hot & dry in RSA for that. I'm trying in a shady corner of the garden!
We also had cupcakes last night, with the stars, and small pearly balls. Will bake cupcakes every day if my boys could, they'd just love that!
Best wishes for you and mom, been there.

So glad to hear you Mum is doing OK. You sound much happier.
Love those little rabbits!

So happy to hear from you Lucy! Sounds like you're having a wonderful Summer with the little people. That's what life is all about. Enjoy it while you can.

Hi Lucy,

I came over your blog in the last days and I love it! I like so much the vivid models, full of colors and joy!
I am also a mother of 3 kids, staying home for the moment and enjoying my knitting and crocheting hobby.
This is my blog http://paturicipentrupitici.blogspot.com/ ("paturici pentru pitici" means aprox. "little blankets for kids"), and I was wondering if you would want a link exchange.
I intend to translate some parts of my blog, so everyone can understand a little bit, but for the moment it's all in pics. :)

Thanks and I am glad I discovered your blog,



I smiled in recognition at the bit where you use Google and your blog as a little but of a brain extension - very useful! Happens round here too!

Your rustic wall is the most perfect photo prop.

And I had a 5am-er too and you are so right - the only way to stay sane is to embrace it. The good news is at the ripe old age of 10 he now has to be shoe-horned out of bed.

Yes indeedy you are a great mummy. Sometimes we sweat the small stuff, Little B will soon be grown and toys won't be an issue anymore. I Loovvee your back yard with all your pots of flowers and herbs, so pretty and your chipped mossy wall. I must make your fish cakes they sound delicious. I am racing along with my granny stripe blanket, I have done over 100 rows and I LOVE it so much, so once again thank you for sharing your pattern. I'm thinking ripple next time. Great news about your mum, take care one and all.
