makealongstoryshort I sent a ranty text message to @mrjeffcoat earlier in the week. Lots of boy-frustration and overwhelmedness, you know how it goes. So he came home and told me he'd booked me a room at a little country inn tonight, somewhere I could eat and read and sleep without interruption. I just arrived and am unpacking hot chocolate sachets and a magazine before going for some dinner. I just took my first uninterrupted loo break in several weeks, and I want to cry a bit with joy. Is he the best human that ever lived, OR WHAT?! #marriage 3d
  •   alifeofonesown Can you forward me that message? my ranty texts don't have the same results! enjoy your respite xxxx 3d
  •   dollface86 @dadinchelt one day 🏻 3d
  •   thewienertakesitall He's such a sweetie :) enjoy my lovely. And a thought to leave you with, in case you thought your evening couldn't get any better - today I found out that they have made the jelly bean popping candy Cadburys bar into ICE CREAM xx 3d
  •   kathrynheywood Wow. 3d
  •   mrs_mays87 Amazing!!! 3d

makealongstoryshort I don't want this weather to end (even though all the tadpoles snuffed it, as expected). We made cookies after this and then went for a hot dog dinner and they were wild in Costco, but it's sunny so it didn't feel so bad. And I bought the Poldark book set, and I am NOT SORRY. #forestspam #nofilter #aidenturnertho 4d

makealongstoryshort Warm cookies, chocolate milk, ten thousand fingerprints on the table: it's the little things that make an afternoon. 5d

makealongstoryshort No one ever told Teddy how to eat an apple, so he's just winging it. Hope that thing about growing an apple tree in your stomach from the seeds is an urban myth. 6d
  •   emmilou__22 Not according to my eight year old. She heard someone had a tree surgically removed. Honestly...... 6d
  •   makealongstoryshort @emmilou__22 oh dear, we're in trouble then! He ate all of it bar the stem 6d

makealongstoryshort First spring here, and blossom trees are a bit thin on the ground (it's all serious evergreens and gorse and such). So whenever I see one I feel especially happy. #spring 7d

Or, why you never go look at antiques with a three-year-old.

makealongstoryshort Family cycle trip to the Roman walls at Silchester. What this photo doesn't tell you is that we did over 13 miles and the hills were like death and we bodily lifted the bike trailer up several churned-up bridle paths with the boys screaming wildly from within. #familytime #goodtry 1w
  •   meggimog But you did the whole thing in a skirt and cute shoes so #win We love Silchester! Used to go there as kids & done a few family shoots there this past year! X 1w

makealongstoryshort We got our first choice primary school. I feel all floppy with relief. Now all I have to do is accept that this boy is going to school in September and those long legs aren't a joke and my baby is really never coming back. #motherhood #melodrama 2w
  •   hurrah4gin Yay!! X 2w
  •   mylifebyjen Your baby has never and will never go away. At least not before the age of 9, from my experience. 2w
  •   undomesticaited No, he seems bigger because he's massive and because he started in a January so had a couple of extra terms. He's been in there forever! 2w
  •   undomesticaited Are you still wanting some flash cards for Henry? Because somehow I've got two sets if you want one? 2w
  •   makealongstoryshort @undomesticaited you are lovely, thank you. I got a set cheap from Toys R Us :-) x 2w
  •   makealongstoryshort @mylifebyjen oh, this makes me feel better. Thank you! X 2w
  •   makealongstoryshort @hurrah4gin SO RELIEVED. Couldn't believe how stressed I was about it! I reread your post from last year to your school starter and it made me cry...again! x 2w
  •   hurrah4gin Lol oh sorry! Must be a big relief :) hope you celebrated with a nice big cup of tea! Xx 2w

makealongstoryshort Crocodile tamer. And no filter neither: today is a beaut. #boys 2w
  •   gill_c Amazing shot! Such good clarity 2w
  •   ecbassett Beale! Oh, do I ever miss that place on days like this. 2w
  •   nkh_lavieenrose Oh my - as I flipped though Instagram this morning and saw this, there was a split second where I thought that gator was real. we just returned from Spring Break in the Florida Everglades, you see, 2w
  •   makealongstoryshort @gill_c thanks! My poor battered iPhone is usually blurrier, so it must have been the light x 2w
  •   makealongstoryshort @ecbassett it's the BEST. I had the two of them by myself in there for five hours and no one had a breakdown, and we all had a blast. So many different things to do! X 2w
  •   makealongstoryshort @nkh_lavieenrose Haha - thank goodness, just a rather realistic bronze model 😀 2w
