|a pretty a day is here and away|

Documenting life's beauty, as seen through the eyes of a lady blessed with everything a girl could dream of, and more: five gorgeous kids, patient and providing husband, an adorable dog, a very cheeky frog, and still time enough to get crafty and creative in the kitchen or with my trusty needles, thread and yarn!
The joys of being Queen of the household! Rejoice, and the world joins in!

If you want...

If you want to sing out, sing out!

And if you want to be free, be free!

There's a million things to be, kids, I always tell my brood of five... And truly there are a whole lot of things they could go on to be... Mimi - she's going to University soon! Who knows, she could be an economist? Or will she be a musician? Kimmy - a flautist? Hmm... seems the plan so far! Mel - seems quite comfy with her place in the world right now... who knows what plans she may have! Nicky - a tough journalist bringing us breaking news? On his way, methinks ;)' And oh my funny forever-young Benjiboy... he took a tumble yesterday at basketball with Nicky... I don't know what plans he's got, but I think he plans on sticking by my side and being my forever companion, on little neighbourhood walks or for afternoon tea!

With Mel and Mimi on their one-month European adventure, the humble abode's been a little quieter, but phew, I just survived the usual morning rush! But as they say, TGIF!!! - Thank Goodness I'm Free! - at least for the next three hours before Ben wakes up and requests a pancake for breakfast... Of course I'm glad to provide!

Mother's Day's coming up, kiddos, lest this slips your pretty little minds <3

and a little update from the girlies' adventures:

 Mimi in Venice, by the grand canal...

 Mimi and a carousel by the beach, Brighton, England

 I couldn't believe this when I saw it -- the girls report this as their view from the Ponte Vechhio (correct me if I'm wrong girlies!) in Florence, Italy
Postcard perfect , I say, even if I am their mom~~~ hahahaha

 Mimi in Bath, England -- the Roman Baths which actually still really work! And they say the water's still hot and steamy --- then again, they were in 10 degree weather? Whoops, hard to keep up, they just keep on moving through these cities , I hardly ever know for sure where they are!

And of course, Mel in her element in a flea market (in a basement, I think, of one of the antique dealers in London... or this could be Brussels, ...)

They'll be due home soon so I'll be doing a lot of catching up!

Love from my window!
