Photo diary: week 9, 365

22.02: On Sunday I cooked a Moroccan chickpea soup, this was the last soup from the Abel and Cole soup box, colourful and bursting with flavours, full of veggie goodness.

soup for Lenten, vegetarian soup

23.02: After taking Eddie to school in the morning, I popped into the local Waterstones to see if they put up Eddie's winning picture as promised. And indeed, it was on display in the children's section, next to a big fat Moomin and Very Hungry Caterpillar. Proud Mummy moment.


24.02: Our garden is prettier and prettier with every new day. Amidst the white carpet of snowdrops there is a burst of colour from the bright purple crocuses.


25.02: Tried all afternoon to capture my little man playing, but every time I picked my camera, my Eddie-quite-contrary-son ran away, so all I had was an empty room. So, empty room it is.


26.02: Eddie has been wearing his new coat this week, a gift from Nonna, his Italian grandma. I love the retro look of this duffle coat.


27.02: When the sun is out, the shadows create the intricate patterns on the ground.


28.02: a little posie for my birthday, picked from our garden by little hands. Better than any overpriced roses.
