In honour of February the 29th I thought I would share this article I stumbled across last night.
This one is particularly painful to watch...
I think some of the comments at the bottom of the Guardin article are a little harsh but I am in favour of private proposals over grand gestures and elaborate affairs. Our decision to marry was very personal and I don't think I would really want to share it with anyone. How about yourselves? What is your dream proposal?Any amazing proposals out there? And if you are planning to pop the question today; good luck!

Eating watermelon with an 18 month old...
Sometimes, when things get a little heavy and I really need a pick me up, I have a hunt through some old shorts of Awhen she was tiny. This is undoubtedly my favourite thing to watch in the whole world and I could watch it on an endless loop if there wasn't life and stuff to do! Much the same as the little phone camera clips I have of her first giggles hs fills me up with love...soppy much?!
Over the weekend the Husband and I treated ourselves to some reading material (which is a big deal in our house as we haven't had the time to do so for ages). Happy with our choices, our lunch out with the little one and some retail therapy to boot we headed home feeling satisfied after a hard week of relentless viral related grossness.
The Husband's is the one on the right and mine is Pigeon English on the left...

Love this apple arrangement from blog french essence-red apples are THE best for munching daily and particularly good in this ultimate feel-good desert for the last of the cold days. Ideally to be eaten after a perfect Roast Dinner!

So I've done something a bit crazy for me..something proactive and spur of the moment-ish and of the 'in-charge of''genre.
Fed up of knowing no other parents and having nothing to be involved with in my local area I took it upon myself to try to organise a book club...twee right?!
I totally don't care for once and have had at least some responses so am about to step to it and will even be including a mini-book club for all the children dragged along! I'm sure this has something to do with the February air, my year always seems to start later than everyone elses!
