Sunny Saturday.

Hugo went for his first solo walk through the farm. Just when I began to think he should be back I heared his gravelly little voice calling from outside, "Mum, I have a present for you". He had picked lots of flowers on his walk and had even found a ladybird to eat my aphids. He felt very grownup.

Today has been spent out in the garden just as we had hoped. Jonno and I piled a trailer with weeds and pruning and felt most triumphant as it lurched precariously toward the sky. Archie went on a long walk with his cousin and Hugo spent the day with a hose and slide (until his lips turned so blue he had to be brought back to life in a nice warm bath.
Strawberries, icecream, abandoned wet towels. The summer season has really begun.
Love Kate xxooxxooxx.

  2. I always find it fascinating reading blogs from the southern hemisphere....mad that your summer is just starting and there's snow here - it's chuffing freezing!
    Love to you xx

  3. I'm vicariously enjoying your summer, Kate! Thank you. I smiled when I read of Hugo's first jaunt. It's so hard doing those first 'letting gos' isn't it? I remember following my kids to the shops the first time they went on their own. I trailed them, hiding in bushes along the way...only to be spotted by a passing policeman, who thankfully saw the funny side when I explained myself. Have a lovely weekend my dear. Did Aubry get home ok? Lots of love, Amanda xxx
