A few good things

It's been a pretty lovely couple of weeks. 

Rose lemonade and my new book at Devon on the Wharf.

Amelie and I went along to a book signing for Emily Writes' new book yesterday. It was Amelie's first time on a ferry and her first time at a book signing, and she loved them both. There was a reading before the signing and she spent more than an hour just smiling at everybody, then fell asleep in her pushchair so I could eat my lunch and start reading the book in peace. One day later, I have nearly finished it – it's a lovely, lovely book, and also wildly funny in just the right moments. So glad we made it along to the event!

Coffee with this gorgeous guy and wonderful girl before work on Friday.

Amelie was pretty delighted to be able to get into her toy box by herself. I suspect tipping it over will be priority number one when she's mobile...

Cuddles with Amelie in the morning light. She always wakes up so happy, and the weekends are just the best, when we bring her into our bed and feed her while drinking coffee ourselves. Love our little family so much!
