♥ Things on my table

A little bit of early morning sun casting beautiful shadows on my favourite little tablecloth (my granny would be horrified at all the wrinkles being thrown into relief here).  I've been relishing the sun and slightly cursing the mugginess at the same time (I feel guilty for even writing that) - it's all very well being lovely and sunny, but enough of the shiny-face-inducing clamminess.  Thank you.
Humbuggishness aside, it was a joy to spend time sitting at the garden table peeling half a ton of apples that a friend gave me:
Mmmm, a cup of tea and a bit of peace and quiet while baby n was asleep - is it wrong that I love this time so much?  I do adore my daughter but really, I do love my time alone while she sleeps.  Guilt...
And my favourite table scene of all?  Why, it doesn't get any better than this:
It upsets me too much when my wine, in its unsteady wine glass, gets spilt all over the table.  I have learnt from experience, my friends.  Take it from me, beakers are the future x


  1. Alone time without babies is not guilty time, it's sanity time, Emily time. I certainly enjoyed my alone moments when I had babies. It was nice to sit down with a magazine, a cup of tea and 10 minutes all to myself.
    Enjoy those moments to the max! :)

  2. I am a big fan of the crumpled look ;o)
    Love the last photo...looks just about perfect....enjoy!
    love jooles x

  3. Hey Emily, some time to yourself is essential so you can be the best mum possible...........

    Sunshine looks lovely and it's interesting to see what's on the cover of future Mollie Makes.

    Thanks for popping over and visiting,

    Claire :}

  4. Oh Mrs, so nice to hear someone else loving the 'baby asleep' time.
    I DO TOO!!
    And without it, I'd never get anything done and I'd be a miserable sod.
    Not sure I could use a beaker for my wine- I fear it would too soon progress to a pint glass..

  5. Nothing like a glass of wine and a good magazine! Enjoy!

  6. I'm with you on the baby alseep thing. Don't you worry. I'm not so bad with the youngest since he's no trouble but I longed for nap time with the other two.

    Very spanish that way of drinking red. Ole!
