Back to reality: the nice bit

It struck me that it's been rather a long time since I posted lots of gratuitous photos of the mini-beasts. Yesterday afternoon we went down to the park in the glorious winter sunshine, for once I didn't forget my camera, and Matilda and Owen obliged me by being in perfect sibling harmony.

Here they are building a bridge to cross over the monster-infested seas. Matilda's idea. (Don't tell them they had to be in the sea to build the bridge...)

Crossing the bridge.

Making gâteau. Matilda's was raspberry, Owen's was cream.


Being together.

Being gorgeous.

After the excesses of Christmas, a little reminder that kids don't need toys. Just imagination. As for me, I'm suffering from premature nostalgia for my time with these two. We had so much fun yesterday. I can't help but be anxious about how le petit dernier will change the dynamics of our family. I read somewhere recently that a family of three is a triangle, four is a square and five a star. I have to believe that our fifth point will make the whole star shine that much brighter.
