Sunset at the Stables


Last Wednesday was one of those pleasantly busy days where we went from activity to activity, and at the end of the day we were both ready to drop. In the afternoon, Jack and I went to see our friend Sarah at the stables again. Jack helped feed the horses and I photographed Sarah breaking one in. With plenty of friendly dogs scampering about the yard too, Jack and I were as happy as pigs in muck. And there was plenty of muck. Luckily we were welly-booted up. 

We're still firmly in the "Why?" stage with no end in sight. And yesterdays trip gave way for loads of "Why's?". We have a saying here in Ireland, that goes "Give my head peace". I'll tell you, it's never been truer since this boy started with the incessant questions about everything. Yesterday, he asked me why he spilt his juice all over the floor. There's a question I'd like to know the answer to as well. I can't get through a song or a radio segment without having to turn it down to feign some kind of answer to what is often a nonsensical question. 


Curious George here, wore a thrifted cardigan, Zara Kids trousers, Cos Shirt, Aigle Perdrix welly boots, and a River Island coat. 
Thanks again to the lovely Sarah for an enjoyable afternoon. We'll be down again soon, no doubt!

  23. Give my head peace! I may not have used those exact words but my heart surely cried that on some days raising my three sons {now 26, 23 and 20!} Your son is simply adorable and I loved the outdoor photos and the theme of this blog. Delightful. Visiting from LIttle by Little. Blessings to you and yours from Sheila at Longings End. And here are some memories of days gone by when my three were little like Jack... http://longingsend.com/2012/04/02/19-candles/

  30. Oh, the "whys" -- I know what you mean. I have actually wondered if my daughter breathes. "Give my head some peace", indeed -- great phrase.
    He's a cutie, though.

  31. Oh how I'm glad those days are over... Okay truthfully I think I'd still take that over the argumentative stage my pre-teens are in.

  32. Oh my gosh, your photos are stunning! Your little boy sounds a lot like mine (who just turned three the other week). The why age is fun, but makes you want to tear your hair out!
