  •   annanee89 Hang around there tonight and captain Phillips is open air. Tomorrow is the Lego movie! 21h
  •   makealongstoryshort @annanee89 yes, that's the best bit! We decided on Lego movie because we didn't think the boys would sit through Captain Phillips :-) are you here too?!x 21h
  •   annanee89 I am! I live in Poole not far away. We're planning on catching the Lego movie too, hoping it will be warm! 21h
  •   nkh_lavieenrose My jaw is hanging open at the beauty of this shot - what a day! 20h
  •   caitbrown23 Gosh that is gorgeous. Also the slightly skew perspective makes Teddy look too big! 18h

makealongstoryshort Birthday candle the first: doughnuts. #birthday #happythird 7d
  •   nkh_lavieenrose We do doughnut birthday cakes a lot here at Glenhaven End. Especially with three boys in the house. 7d
  •   makealongstoryshort @nkh_lavieenrose ha, it does go down well! Glad to hear I'm not the only one. I didn't organise a party for him because we thought we'd be moving house...so somehow he's ended up with three little celebrations instead :-) 7d
  •   makealongstoryshort @nkh_lavieenrose PS, is Glenhaven End the name of your house? Lovely! 7d
  •   nkh_lavieenrose @makealongstoryshort - well, we live on the street named Glenhaven Drive which is a cul de sac but American addresses are so dull compared to British addresses so as any good Anglophile would, I named our house Glenhaven End. It bridges the gap between my house and England and makes me feel marginally better that I don't {yet} live there. It is also a nod to Tolkien and the Baggins of Bag End. 7d

makealongstoryshort You think you do baskets, Pinterest? 18TH CENTURY AGRICULTURE DID BASKETS. #merl #latergram #vscocam 1w
  •   kaml1912 Nice picture...Museum of Agriculture? We picked the wrong time to live in Halifax right beside Eureka Children's museum-Was it there when you lived up this way, @makealongstoryshort? 1w
  •   makealongstoryshort It was! I remember Eureka! It was very new and exciting when I was little, though also expensive, so I think we only went once. 1w
  •   makealongstoryshort @kaml1912 and this was the museum of English Rural Life, in Reading. Ancient tractors, wagons, threshers, and a steam train. He LOVES it. 7d
  •   kaml1912 Never been to that one...mind you @makealongstoryshort , my only visits to Reading have almost exclusively fallen under the categories "Reading Festival"..."Church"...or "Shopping". I do recall you blogging about it though. I have to deliver some training to Eureka staff later this year... maybe I can convince them to host it in-house and sneak a peek. 7d

  •   misspocock I nearly cried at the first haircut of both of mine! Strange, given I'm not normally that kind of Mum. 1w
  •   makealongstoryshort @misspocock yes, me neither, but haircuts really get me in the gut - that sudden leap into boyhood! On the other hand, the thought of Henry's first day at nursery in a few weeks keeps making me choke up - I thought I'd be thrilled, but it's a real bittersweet mix - so maybe I'm a crier after all :-) 1w

makealongstoryshort 'Mummy', he said to me yesterday, in public, 'are you empty inside?'
Way to set off an existential crisis, Hen (he was asking whether I was hungry) :-) #vscocam
