March Snapshots

March in snapshots, according to my iPhone (mostly)… A new washi wall feature in the play room. Purple house. We discovered a new playground. First ice-cream of the season! New street art in Schöneberg. We ran in to Kung Fu Panda at the mall… …and a giant Easter bunny! Quite an impressive (bow) tie collection for a 5 […] 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…

Rocking Horse Makeover

Last Christmas, when pondering the inevitable question of what to get the kids, we decided to up-cycle some of our old toys for them. It was a great way to not generate even more new stuff, when we already had such a great resource sitting in the basement, and I think DIY projects are always […] Read more…

PINK. It’s just a colour!

As the mother of two boys, I never thought I would have to worry about the colour pink. No, scrap that. Not ‘worry’. That is not a word I want to associate with pink. Because I am not worried. But I have been spending a LOT more time thinking about pink, talking about pink and […] Read more…

Pancakes & Popcorn Dinner Party

Tuesday afternoon, I arrived back from my ‘girls only’ long weekend away in Scotland, to be greeted not by the usual laughing bundle of joy that is my baby, but by a little feverish ball of snivelling misery. Therefore, despite the best laid plans, we postponed Pancake Day until the next night, when Mr Fox was feeling […] Read more…
