As I mentioned before, last week Rose and I took a trip back to Dorset for a few days whilst Ray was working all over the weekend. We had such a lovely time.. well I did anyway, I can't really speak for Rose! But I'm pretty sure she enjoyed herself!
It was so lovely to be back home, I love it here in Sussex for the moment.. but in a couple of years when Ray will be able to move with work, I do hope to be able to move somewhere a little further south. Somewhere kind of half way between his family and mine. I see my family at least every few weeks but now with a little baby, it really makes you realise how quickly time flies! Seeing how much Rose changes in just a couple weeks makes it feel like I haven't been back in yonks!
As you can see from this picture of my Nan holding Rose.. she now has two teeth! Which has meant some sleepless nights for me... She's already transforming into a toddler! Scary stuff!
I got to see close friends and family whilst we were back in Dorset but as my Mum lives in Cornwall I wasn't going to be able to see her, so my Nan came up with the idea of us driving half way to Cornwall to see her for the day. We met up in Okehampton and went to a lovely place called Finch Foundry where we had a picnic and a look around. I think Mum was a little pleased to see Rose by the look of things!
We had our picnic next to the river, the leaflet we had recommended going on the 'river walk'. For some reason we thought this would be a walk suitable for a pushchair but it was the complete opposite, we had to carry Rose over quite a few obstacles before finding somewhere suitable to settle down for our lunch. That'll teach me to forget to put the baby carrier in the car!
I think this blue spiky looking plant is amazing, I don't know what it is though but I'd love to have some in my garden... so I'll have to find out...
They're all so lovely.. I want them all! Greedy me! But as you can see from the above photo.. Rose was also rather keen...
I was given some pots for the garden from my step-dad and have been busy outside potting them up so I will try and get some photo's up on here soon. :-)
Right! Well, time to go and sort out dinner... so I will love you and leave you!
