Tonight's performance features...

...bun-bun #2 in the starring role.  Selected from a cast of six possible candidates, this rabbit was chosen for his uncanny ability to look like he is struggling valiantly against the quick clothes (as in 'quick sand') that are about to suck him into the laundry basket.  There are two things I need to explain at this point: 1) we have six bun-buns - as you can see from this one, baby n sucks them (ew) so I operate a strict washing/drying/sucking regime; 2) not sure why these rabbits are all male, especially as two of them have floral ears, but they most definitely are - perhaps they're just in touch with their feminine sides.
In a supporting role, we have an army:
I suspect, looking at this photo, that big n might have a touch of the perfectionist about him (I want to say another word there - one that describes a complete 'perfectionist', but I'm worried my blog might start appearing on all the wrong sort of Google searches if I do).  I am considering enlisting this battalion's help in trying to maintain some semblance of order over the next few weeks - I fear that threat of mutilation or death may be the only way forward.
And the role of chorus line, is capably filled by the African flowers:
Did I mention that I love these?
And let's not forget the understudy - seen here helping the director to Google 'how to dry bay leaves' on a smart phone:
So, there we have the cast - the series continues at a later date, for I am off for a fews days now - heading for the bright lights of the big city (that and my lovely, lovely, oldest friend) for a blissful child-free weekend.  I'm thinking: wine, Bridesmaids, crochet, duvet/sofa combos, Festival of Britain...oh, the possibilities are endless when the babes are at home with daddy for the weekend.  So, with a flick of my locks, I will bid you adieu and ride off into the sunset (cue the music, maestro) x
PS - I have to say a really huge 'thank you' to Becky at The Fluff Pot for also nominating me for the Versatile Blogger award.  Thank you so much, Becky - I think that's what you call a double whammy!


  1. enjoy your child free time - such bliss!
    I've had my fair share recently so its family time heaven for me....fee x
    (hook on way tomorrow)

  2. Hahaha.. Love the picture of bun-bun trying to escape from the washing machine! You are very organised having spares of his favourite comfort toy. I've been warned that I should try and get duplicates of whichever toy is Rose's favourite.. it's difficult at the moment, I have no idea which toy she'll really take a liking to!
    Your African flower blanket is stunning, it's so lovely and feminine. Gorgeous! :-)

  7. Well, another award! I'm not surprised actually. How was the weekend? I am in need of a girlie weekend so I am looking forward to hearing about yours but I know it will leave me with an even bigger hankering for some down time.

    I was "talking" to Heather of Little Tin Bird fame the other day and we were doing the fantasy dinner party guest list thing. Only it was a Fantasy Bloggy Girl Retreat. You were firmly on my list.
