Tree Tall Teenagers, Easter Nests and Crochet Baby Shoes

A very good friend of mine will be father soon. He's excited. I'm excited. Despite the fact that my own kids are already hard approaching leaving-mama's-nest time I developed in the last years an "oh my god so cute" appreciation for small children I never had or knew before from myself. Perhaps it's not despite the … Continue reading Tree Tall Teenagers, Easter Nests and Crochet Baby Shoes

English-Book-Strawberry-Trifle and Irena&dots

It ties you to the bed with fever and self-pity at first, plenty of bedside-stuck chores in the middle and headaches and hope in the end. no, I'm not pregnant.
