making me smile

My friend Julia made me this sweet little jar of lavender flowers while my husband gave her daughter her Ukulele lesson this week. Isn't it lovely, you can see more of it here. And she sent me eggs from her Bantam hens, as she often does when she has enough, she is so nice - thanks Julia!!!

Today I took the children to the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff. After terrifying the two littlest ones with the dinosaur section, we took an animal prints workshop, where we learnt lots about animal tracks and got to make our own, designing our own stamps and using lots of glue and black paint!

ps - note I am trying to post more - 6 posts in July, surely my worst month for blogging since I began! (so now you may get to know even the most mundane stuff in my life, brace yourselves!)

Looks like a fun trip to the museum. You all certainly do a great job with museums in the UK.

What a lovely pressie - I love lavender. The museum trip sounds like it was very successful - my two have always loved doing the activities at museums. especially the messy ones!
