Be still my incomplete hearts!

We were recently able to visit a garden which was open under the Yellow Book scheme. Many years ago the house and garden had belonged to handsome hubby's aunt and he spent many happy summers there with his cousins, rampaging through corn fields and climbing this tree!
He wanted to share the garden with the beautiful boy, but of course it had all completely changed. But the climbing tree was still there. Like a great big protective umbrella.
I am so glad we visited. It was good to share memories and see my two men together under this incredible tree, chatting about boys stuff and things mum's don't need to know!
From 2pm today it is officially the Summer Holidays! The beautiful boy finally finishes school for 8 weeks. Whoopee! He asked his lovely teacher's favourite colour and we made more bunting; this time it was green with stars...
and he made his trademark Lavender Owl! Only the very special people get one of these!
I am so looking forward to the everyday wonder of my boy's company! We are so very lucky to have him. But the question must now be asked, when will I ever,
indeed, will I ever
finish my Tiny Hearts sampler?! I'm off to stock the cupboards. Hearts will have to wait! Have a lovely weekend everyone. t.x

Hi T,

I was very excited to get a comment on my blog by someone else who is living in Norfolk. I recognised a lot of places in your photos (the mirror elephant is my favourite of all the elephants around Norwich), and the chocolates etc. You have very lovely things in your blog. Polly x x x

Kitschen Pink said...

Thank-you Polly! The idea of proximity is exciting isn't it! That mirror elephant is the best one we've seen so far!

Oh everything in this post was soooo cute, your husband passing on his memories to your son...
But what was really nice for me was the fact that your son is just as TALENTED as his mummy!
Hope that you and yours have a well deserved Summer Holidays!
