Hello! neat little things is my little blog featuring all things that I'm liking and loving in the world of fashion, design and interiors, and a bit about family life too. I am a full time mum, and live in St Albans with my husband, and our two children.
I also run an online shop called a neat little shop, which sells cards, prints and more. (www.aneatlittleshop.com, if you want to check it out!)
Well another week has rolled by (and then some!) and it's been a bit quiet on here, but without sounding like a broken record the kids have been full on and life has just taken over as per usual! Mec has been working overtime with some major project at work (something techy, I don't ask, just try to be supportive as a I can!) so we've barely seen each other this week and it's meant I've been in charge of the kids all week and over the last weekend. I actually took them for a short break down to Bexhill to see Grandma Seaside which was really lovely, and they had a great time jumping waves and running along the promenade.
The view from my deck chair! Nice :)
The De La Warr Pavillion - and yes, I did look round the design shop, again!
There's love between these two sometimes!
My mum and I also took the kids up to London during the week, for fun and frolics along the Southbank. It's so easy on the train it was a no brainer, and there's just the right amount of stuff to do along there, and more really, to fill a long afternoon in the sun. We couldn't help but hop on the bright pink bus for frozen yogurt, it was really delicious and the view out across the Thames from the top was fab! Tabby and Sam got romantic on the top, so cute when they want to be!
I have a photo just like this from last year when I took the kids along the Southbank so couldn't resist a double take to see how much they've grown up!
We checked out the view from the Tate restaurant - I felt weak at the knees as the kids crouched up against the floor to ceiling windows, eek!
I hope you've been enjoying the summer, whatever you're up to - kids or no kids, summer hols or not!
Here's hoping for a restful weekend ahead and hopefully feeling a bit more pulled together next week!
