The sun shone through the window so bright this morning, we got a bit overexcited and got ourselves sorted with a slap up picnic lunch. Well, as is so often the case with this scenario, it turned out to be what I like to call an 'Irish picnic'. I.e. One goes with the intention of eating al fresco, but ends up foundered and bundled up in the car wrapped in blankets. Well, after attempting to sit outside in the sun, Jack complained it was too windy and we ate lunch in the car. I wanted to at least leave the doors open to give that outdoorsy feel, but Jack insisted it was too cold. He was kind of right. After filling our bellies we ventured outside and kept ourselves warm with a run about.
Let me introduce you to another one of my wonderful new affiliates, new Finnish brand, Guuguu Kidswear. They generously sent Jack these funky College Housut trousers. Super comfy with huge pockets that Jack likes to keep all manners of things in! These were actually amazing when Jack had the chicken pox a couple of weeks ago. He lived in these as all his other trousers hurt his wee scabs. Also, they're our go-to trou of choice when we're doing something active like going to our local gymnastics club. He's wearing them with the American Apparel kids Tri-blend top, and Hummel Suf Blue High tops from our friends at Milly Mog.
A lovely time was had by all. I loved being surrounded by Gorsebush, it's absolutely my favourite weed, despite being repeatedly pricked on the legs and bum as we made our way through the masses of it. We came home with a couple of injuries though. Young Jack poked Daddy in the eye with a stick (or his magic wand, as he insisted) and Jack has a splinter which he just will not let us attempt to remove.
"Argh! My eye!"
Gugguu also sent Jack their Huppari Harmaa hoody - another seriously comfy little item, which is unusually and beautifully cut. Check out all his little poses in my studio. He's such a lark.
Thanks so much to Gugguu for the items, check them out if you get a chance. For now I'll leave you with what we got up to these past few days in my Week that Was series.I'm off to attempt to talk Jack into letting me have another go at removing this splinter. I'll tell you right now, this is going to go down like a lead balloon. Wish me luck!
