Snapshots #41

April in snapshots, according to my iPhone (mostly)… Ma 3 Boys! Cherry blossoms are out. Whether you’re 5 or 35, ice cream makes everything better when you’re having a bad day. Sunday breakfast. First day of Kindergarten! Discovered a new playground. So proud of his new bicycle tassels. He chose pink. Of course. It’s getting warm […] Read more…

Rain Cloud Mobile

Ever since I discovered they sell bags of felt balls, sorted by colour, at our local crafts store, I knew I had to do something with them! I had no idea what at the time, but after hovering over them on several craft store trips, I finally purchased several bags of felt balls in different […] Read more…

Style Notes: The Budding Photographer

After a week of being cooped up indoors with a hefty bout of tonsillitis, Mr Fox is finally feeling a little better! So we headed out to the back yard to stretch our legs – and to test out his new camera, which arrived in the post today. Of course, mummy couldn’t resist having a little photo […] Read more…

Jumping on the Green Smoothie Bandwagon

I know I’m a bit late to the game, but this past weekend I made my first ever green smoothie! After reading plenty of recipes until my head was spinning, I decided to largely base it on ingredients I had in the house. And yes, I do have a stock pile of coconut water and […] Read more…

Spring Festival at Berlin’s Domäne Dahlem

I’ve been itching to share our recent trip to Gothenburg with you, which we visited over Easter, but sadly our fantastic holiday was followed by Mr Fox falling ill. Again. So instead of finding time to write and download the photos from our trip, I’ve been in and out the doctors with him all week. […] Read more…

A picnic book & a chocolate cake!

I’m a sucker for picnics. So as soon as I read about the new cook book ‘City Picknick’, by Julia Kutas, I had to order it. Whether it’s for an indoor picnic on your living room floor, or an outdoor picnic with friends and family in the park, this book offers you a range of […] Read more…

Family Day at Berlin’s Märkisches Museum

Last weekend, Oskar and I headed to the Märkisches Museum here in Berlin for Family Day which they were hosting. With Easter not far away, the theme was based all around the Easter Bunny’s workshop. We made some bunny ears each to get in the mood (I was the only adult I spotted, other than […] Read more…

Home Tour: Car Nook

When you look at any home tours on blogs, Pinterest etc, you’ll quite often come across the word ‘nook’ – book nook, breakfast nook…etc. Well, we now have a car nook! With two car obsessed boys in the house, we’re always tripping over cars in the most unexpected places. So when deciding what to do […] Read more…

5 things we’re looking forward to in March!

Goodness, how is it March already? My last month at home with Mr Fox. I still don’t have a new job lined up yet, but he will start at Kindergarten from April for a few hours a day regardless. I’ll have to make the most of our time together. And as much as I love […] Read more…

Dandelions & Childhood Heroes

It’s not been a great start to the year, as far as losing idols and heroes is concerned. First David Bowie and Alan Rickman in quick succession, then Terry Wogan a couple of weeks later. And now, Peter Lustig. One of the biggest – if not *the* biggest – heroes of my childhood. If you don’t […] Read more…
