130/365 – Our tiny patch of grass never looked so lush and green! And then Dave cut it and it’s back to being a bit patchy again. Sigh.

131/365 – Betsy drawing dinosaurs on the patio (and in the background is Arthur digging up my courgette plant and eating soil. I’m a good parent!)

132/365 – Dave is on late shifts this week which means I’m left to do bedtimes on my own, which means everyone piling into the big bed to sleep (including the cat too, sometimes).

133/365 – Yeah, so I really haven’t got into the swing of taking photos on the days that I work. Yesterday is typical, only remembering to take a snap in the evening, and this day is a photo I took on the commute into work on the Tube by accident. I didn’t even mean to take this photo and yet it manages to be the only photo of the day. Hmmm. I think I will make a special effort to get out in my lunch breaks this week and take some photos of London!

134/365 – A very long drive into Devon in horrible weather conditions. Still, it was nice seeing the brown signs for Wookey Hole and that Clarks outlet in Street where we used to get our school shoes from on the way though.

135/365 – So today was my aunt’s funeral. Lovely service, but utterly heartbreaking as these things are. This is the view from the church. It’s a beautiful spot just north of Exeter, an idyllic village where everyone is friendly and the church looks out over miles and miles of rolling Devonshire countryside.

136/365 On to happier times and today was Imogen’s 1st birthday party, hooray! Happy birthday, Imo!

    Ah thank you! Hope your aunt’s funeral went as well as these things can go.

    Lovely post. I’m so sorry for the loss of your aunt and happy birthday to Imogen. I just love the photo of your two sound asleep in the bed together, fabulous sibling shot.x
