The Gallery - Sunshine


The sun shines and out go the toys, bundles of them, ferried to the perfect picnic spot, not far from the back door. There's always lots of enthusiastic to-ing and fro-ing; gathering every possible plate, cup and random thing that might come in handy.
Once it's all laid out, she's back in wanting more suncream on - still can't believe she asks. SO different from the boys: I have to chase them round the garden with the bottle, pinning them down as they squirm and twist so it ends up in their hair.
Cream on, she's out, then in again looking for picnic food this time, because Bella and Stella are VERY hungry, and they only eat biscuits.
Fussy Bella and Stella. 
Though they do seem partial to a spot of mashed up daisy and grass tea....

I can see her from the kitchen window - busy, happy, in a sunny world of her own.


The Gallery theme this week is Sunshine :)

      She is great at setting out all the toys - not so great at putting them away! x
