A colourful week!

My word of the week this week is colours, as I have been enjoying all of the colours of spring.

At the weekend we popped over to one of my favourite spots, our local bluebell woods. I love going at this time of year to see the gorgeous carpet of blue up the slopes of the hillside in the woods. Monkey enjoyed exploring and so did LM though there was some big muddy puddles we had to keep her away from!PhotoGrid_1460552808015

Afterwards we headed to my mother in laws for her birthday celebrations, and Monkey and I had made her a rather colourful cake! We had a lovely time with family.PhotoGrid_1460552905975

We also did some gardening over the weekend and it is so lovely to see so much colour appearing in the garden and out and about!PhotoGrid_1460553012830

I’m also a little in love with my new bright yellow coat from Trespass… Review coming soon! It is not a colour I would usually go for but I am loving it so far!PhotoGrid_1460573962618

Finally you may have seen my recent post about bubble painting with Monkey… Well we have been at it again this week as he loved it so much. He was enjoying mixing the colours this time by blowing two at once! Such fun.PhotoGrid_1460574008936

  1. I used to love bubble painting so much as a kid, I’m going to have to do this with z. Your coat is a fab colour, I usually just wear black but it’s such a nice bright shade!

  2. Lots of colour in your week! Love the photos from the bluebell woods – going to find one is high on my to-do list at the moment and I hope your mother-in-law had a lovely birthday (that cake does look very yummy!) Love your new yellow coat as well 🙂

  3. Definitely a colourful week for you. I love your yellow coat! I really miss going to the bluebell woods, I will have to see if I can get down to ours soon.

  4. Hi Caroline, your pictures are beautiful and those bluebells must be really pretty in the flesh (or petals). It looks like a good time was had by all at Mother In Law as birthday get together and I like the look of that cake.

    The bubble painting looks like fun too.


  5. Oh I love a bit of colour and at this time of year it’s lovely to have some beautiful colours coming in to the house and gardens!
    I’m loving your new Trespass Coat; I’m partial to a bit of yellow myself so this looks just perfect. I look foward to seeing your review

  6. A very colourful week indeed! I too love bluebells – such a beautiful welcome to summer aren’t they? Love your matching coats too. No one will miss you two coming!
