And Fences made of Stone


Wee Jack and I had a wonderfully busy week last week. Playschool, playdates, and checking out Jack's new school were just a few of the things we got up to. He was very unhappy at the thought of leaving playschool and starting nursery this September, so I'm delighted that a short induction day has eliminated his fears and he seems to be looking forward to it.


After our super busy week, my husband and I understandably slept in on Saturday morning, what, with no alarm and all. Jack doesn't require an alarm. He is an alarm. He got up at 7am on the dot, as usual, and pottered into our room. I remember him trying to rouse us, but we dozed right through. I guess he gave up and decided to have a delve into my drawers and dressing table. I ignored the clinking of bottles and rummaging. The next thing I knew I was having a mixed up sort of dream that probably involved Britney Spears and awoke in confusion as the seriously strong stench of perfume wafted up our nostrils. Jack had sprayed half the bottle of my Britney Spears 'Fantasy' perfume over himself and was now standing by the fan pointed in our direction. It was a most unpleasant way to wake up. I had to give the fella a good scrub, (especially his perfume doused hair) our room still stinks, and I'm pretty sure those pyjamas will have to be thrown out.


I have a lovely new French sponsor called L'enfant Sauvage, who you can find on my sidebar. They kindly sent Jack a few items, including this happy yellow Crown Cardigan. Super sweet, and perfect for mild summer days like these. He's also wearing the Hip Hareem Pant from another great sponsor, Mini Mioche. The tee is from Cos, and of course his little high tops are Converse.  

A big thanks to both my sponsors- do check them out! And as I mentioned in a previous post, Mini Mioche are offering my readers 15% off an order with the code moon15




Last week we received an exciting parcel from a company called Almondella. This company delivers a monthly box of goodies for you and your child, tailored to the age and gender of your little one. It was very exciting - like an early Christmas present! It's definitely a little bit of luxury to treat yourself to, or you can buy a subscription for someone else. Wouldn't that be the gift that would keep on giving? Anyway, I hope I'm not spoiling any surprises, should you decide to sign up... but I wanted to share what we received in our box this month.


Jack was obviously totally delighted with the tool set. It was just his bag. I was particularly pleased with the gorgeous designer leggings, and the organic shampoo. Thanks so much to the guys from Almondella. It made our day!

  1. I love your photos of your little Jack. So cute and always captured great childhood memories of him exploring. Love his curls my son has curls like this. Good luck with his new nursery. I bet he will settle in and love it. Glad they do an induction day to get him excited about it. Change can be hard for kids so that's such a good idea. My son starts school next september and I am not ready at all. lol Love the package you receive each month. That must be exciting to wait for and see what comes in it. So great goodies. #whatsthestory
