We're back! Sorry about that peeps, this newborn baby business seems to take up rather alot of ones time!
I had kinda forgotten how totally-crazy full on things get when a new tiny person makes their way into your family, but its been the most amazing four weeks anyone could ask for.
Yes, thats right, this tiny man is now four whole weeks old(and a bit). And we've all loved every single second of him.

As a family we all seem to have been drawn even closer together, people pop by more, are more considerate, cry more and love more.
William is a lovely little boy, very cuddly, LOVES his milk, and generally although im dog tired most days, i wake up each morning and thank the lord that i met Mr P and he gave me this amazing gift....

So enough of me gushing on about the love of my life, ive taken hundreds of photos in the last month, of each day which has passed, of the people William has met, of the places he has visited.
Capturing all those firsts.
Today i thought id share with you his first proper trip to the cathedral city of Winchester.
My mum lives in Winchester so im very lucky that we can pop into town, shop till we drop then drive 5 mins up the road and flop on the sofa and drink tea for the afternoon!

Here he is in his pram, 3 weeks old. Growing at a rate of notts, he's already grown out of that sleepsuit!
After heading up the main high street, stopping to ooh and ahh in white stuff and fat face, its time for lunch so we sat here on the bench for a quick feed, opposite the West Cornwall Pasty Co, and watched the world go by, dont you just love doing that, a million different types of people pass you, all with a different agenda, i like to imagine what they're all up to on their journeys.

Sat here we also have a view of this monument, called the Butter cross...one of the figures is of someone called William of Wykeham, how apt?
Its a favourite spot for my girls to sit on while they munch their cheese straws, they love to climb the steep wobbly steps and chase each other in and out of the carvings! As i did with my brother 20 years ago.

On this day a lovely old man was playing his accordion, it was lovely to just, sit, listen, chill.
MMMmm, that sweet baby head smell....cant beat it!...

On this day, William visited a shop dear to my heart for the first time...can you spot it?..

Yup, you guessed it...!

'Say cheese'!
He already has a CK Sleepsuit which was given as a gift when he was born so we didnt make a purchase on this occasion but the staff all said 'hi' and cooed over him!
We wandered on round to the cathedral grounds, there was a lovely warm breeze, and people just milling about...

...Sitting in the cathedral grounds, enjoying their lunch breaks...

Everything is so green at the moment, full of colour and life...

On our way back through town we have to stop off for fuel for mummy...

Looks good eh?

This is my favourite local bakery...i'll have a mushroom ciabatta pizza please!

Down past the street market and home we head.

I hope you enjoyed our mini tour of winchester, im sorry its short and sweet and I will try and pop back as much as possible to fill you in on what else we're all up to. I have an IPhone now so i can read all of your blog posts as 4am milking time, so i may not be actively posting as much as usual but im checking up on all of you and wish you well.

Lots of love, Kirsty xox (and William)

Growing together

Right now there's a whole lotta growin' going on! My tiny baby is now not so tiny anymore, only managing to wear something once before he's grown out of it, my girls are just as bad, shoes, school clothes, even knickers! They're all getting so big in front of my eyes, i sometimes wish i could freeze time, savour every little detail, i guess thats where my blog comes in.
I took these photos two weeks ago i think, and already the Poppys and Alliums are over, making way for Roses and Delphiniums. I have almost no time to spend tending to my garden at the moment-for obvious reasons-so im enjoying it from afar and making my peace with the weeds and long grass.

I have THE most amazing new bird feeder, a gift from my mum for my birthday last friday, and the garden is so alive i cant possibly get stressed out by the bits which shouldn't be sprouting in the borders and between the paving slabs. I'll show the new birds who've found their way into the garden shortly, but today i've got some pretty blooms to share
LoVe this colour!....

'Patty's plum'...lOvE this colour too!

I now have some white Alliums coming into bloom-like starbursts in my borders!

Sadly the chooks have discovered these little beauties so ive promised Poppy i'll buy a hanging basket planted up with strawbs!

These Lupins are at Mr P's parents house, i just had to share them, dont they look stunning??

And here is the veggie patch, slowly coming to life!

Can you spot some little people in there with the Rhubarb??!

Great fun! We came home with three carrier bags full, to be shared amongst family.

Right i have to dash now, jacket spuds are going ping in the oven and mini P is needing his mamma!
Hope you enjoyed the pretty pictures...

Love to all...Kirsty xoxo
