The long weekend has thrown my timing off completely. I woke-up Monday morning to not only realise that it was Monday, but to the thought that I had not taken photos of Hugo for that week. I guess when there is a long weekend involved we can count the start of the week as Tuesday! Haha!
Anyway, the weather here is just crazy. To think it is almost June and today I pulled out my winter coat. Monday had some nice, sunny moments, and we made the most of it by taking a nice walk to the park. Manu showed Hugo how to pick the little flowers in the grass, and there is nothing sweeter than a little boy holding flowers. If he would have given them to me I would have burst with pride.
This year I have seriously become obsessed with the colour yellow. Maybe it has to do with the lack of sun in France this year, but I want everything yellow. Yellow bike, yellow flowers, yellow walls, yellow yellow yellow! So imagine just how excited I was when Meltin’ Pot sent me these yellow jeans! I’ve waited for the nice weather to wear them, because in many ways yellow kinda needs sunshine to make it work (unless it’s in the form of a yellow raincoat with matching rain hat, then bring on the rain!).
As for this rather inviting flower patch, I have Hugo to thank. Keeping play time interesting means switching parks several times a week. We don’t often come to this one, as the playground is really for much bigger kids, so the effort was all worth it when I laid eyes on this pretty, sizable patch of grass, deliciously covered in these gorgeous, little flowers. Flowers which when warmed by the sun give off that unmistakeable spring/summer perfume. I just have to hold on to that thought, as the rain and cold has settled in once more. Will summer ever come?
If you have been following my blog you may have noticed it has had a make-over. What do you think?
