Only me and my mum knows how much I love figs! When I was little I used to clime up the fig tree in our backgarden and just sit there eating them! No I wouldn’t bring them down to share! That’s how much I loved them and still do! I mean they are not my very favourite fruit but probably the second!

Found these in the shops today and my eyes just went wide open when I spooted them so yes I had to get them! And they are soooo good!!

I love seasonal fruits!

What are your favourite fruits?

It’s a messy kind of day!

 

One of the biggest challenges I face as a mother of 3 (almost 4) year old twins is keeping them busy! They get bored very easily and althouhg they entertain themself quite a lot and play with each other sometimes they just want mummy to get involved too!

So today we decided to make some mess with finger paints! They love this ! I think every kid loves it!

Of course the next challenge was cleaning everything up and even after me saying ‘ no running in the house with those dirty feet’ well I bet you all can guess what happen!! More cleaning for mummy!

But they had a blast and thats all it matters!
