Vacuuming is fun!

We let Jambin empty his box of lentils all over floor. Then, and this was the best bit, I gave him the vacuum cleaner. He thought this was absolutely tops, and set about experimenting with what could be sucked up (teddies, clothes, hair, chalk) and what couldn't (his footstool, the couch, mummy's foot, Darcy)

My pretty sweeting

Having just spent a wonderful weekend in Cairns at the wedding of Jambin & Darcy's "Auntie Terri", I couldn't resist titling this post after the quote on the back of the reception table placecards from Shakespeare's Carpe Diem:

"Trip no further, pretty sweeting,
Journey's end in lovers' meeting -
Every wise man's son doth know."

Is there anything more delicious and kissable than tiny baby toes?

The pants? Lovingly handknitted by yours truly using my dear friend Shannon's longies pattern, currently offered for free on her blog, but soon to be new and improved and available for purchase. The yarn I used is Woolganics certified organic merino 8ply wool, grown by some obliging sheep in our neighbouring New Zealand. The colour is Grapefruit Moon.
