August in Photos

It’s an absolute miracle that I’m posting this as my laptop died at the weekend. Well, almost, I managed to resurrect it but had to wipe it first so have been foraging for my files and software etc in all the hidey holes where I’d safely backed (most of) it up.  And the rest of this week is super busy, a work trip to Belgium then Mr S’s birthday. September is spectacularly busy actually but August was a nice balance of fun and hanging out in the sunshine.

Kicked off with a Teddy Bear’s Picnic birthday party for Myles in the newly renovated Lloyd Park in Walthamstow. LS soon ditched teddy to climb and jump off logs and run around with friends!

The next day we went to Monski Mouse’s Baby Disco Dance Hall on the South Bank:

Homemade lollies have also been a hit. We’ve made easy ones using shop bought smoothies and more tricky yoghurt based ones by mixing Greek yoghurt with mashed berries and sometimes adding honey / mashed banana / coconut milk. The one in these photo is chopped fruit frozen with grape juice:lollyThose stairgates have gone now! LS is pretty confident at getting up and down the stairs and likes the freedom. We still have the one at the top of the stairs to contain her if we need to. Like keeping her away from too many sprinkles, the pot was up-ended when when the grown-ups weren’t looking:
