No Bella!

That is what I've been mostly saying this week..."no bella!". The 2 woodburning fires are up and running. How does one keep a shuffling/crawling baby away from them? Sam is also on baby watch and has been instructed to shout "T,!" (T is me by the way. Sam calls me T and we don't know why....maybe Scott asking me for cups of tea?). We also nearly had an interesting chocolate mouse incident yesterday. Out of nowhere, Bella silently shuffled around the kitchen with her eye firmly on the bowl of egg yolks, followed by my Emma Bridgewater mugs. Oh my.

We've been trying to make the most of what nice weather there is by nipping out for a short walks. There are so many pathways to explore around the village and we all benefit from the excercise and the wildlife.

The grandparents have arrived from england for a few weeks. Bella is slightly suspicious of grandad and doesn't know whether to laugh or cry. Sam doesn't know whether or not to believe that he actually eats snails and his tales of seeing grizzly bears in Canada or the mighty spirit bear. Nana brought Bella some lovely outfits plus some nicely wrapped gifts from Auntie Saranne.
Not a bad week all in all :)
