Taking Stock for June

Can you believe it's already the last Thursday in June? I feel like I wrote my Taking Stock for May only a week or so ago and yet, here we are.

What’s Up Wednesday : Naming process

  Today, like most weeks, I spent some time naming some of the latest additions to the Gus and Ollie clan. Sometimes a name jumps right off the page and fits perfectly, other times I search and search, trying to find the perfect name to fit those cute little faces. The questions I am asked… Continue reading What’s Up Wednesday : Naming process

Fun One Friday : Advocating for colour

* Colour Alert * Is it just me, or are things for kids these days lacking some wild and wonderful colour?

Taking Stock : May 2015

It's that time again, if you can believe it! Another month down and in just two more sleeps it's officially Summer time here in the Northern Hemisphere. I'm hoping Hamburg's weather will get the memo - June is often a strange mix of cold, but sunny & humid but gloomy days - with heavy downpours… Continue reading Taking Stock : May 2015

Snapshot : Almost Strawberry Season

This is a very exciting time indeed. Some time during May, Germany-wide, these little huts pop up all over the city. And yes - they're supposed to look like strawberries, because they mark the beginning of Strawberry Season! The sign on the front means they will be opening in just a few days time. I… Continue reading Snapshot : Almost Strawberry Season
