We call them brambles.
Sweet juicy blackberries where most go straight from the plant to your mouth. If you can resist eating them straight away the harvest can be used for my favourite apple and bramble crumble. 
This year Eilidh is loving picking them herself, along with wild raspberries too! 
Do you enjoy going bramble (blackberry) picking at this time of year?

Two posts in one night!? 😱 I know, terrible instagram sin, but I need your help!
Which do you prefer? Black and white or colour? 
I love in the first picture how the focus is more on Eilidh, but the tones in the second are also just so whimsical, I can't decide! 
Oh and this is also from the same place as my last post, just to show how diverse it can be really!

Back to reality tomorrow after a wonderful holiday in the Highlands. Would you guess this sunny beach is on the north west coast of Scotland?
Our beautiful blanket is from Kantha Bae. They have a sale on today 😍 and you can shop directly through the link in my bio 😊

He's probably not actually perfect, but he's perfect for us. Happy birthday David (yesterday πŸ™ˆ)

We are having a chilled evening before we drive up north tomorrow evening on holiday, so I thought I'd do one of those interesting facts about me things! 
So here's five:
1. I can't say my own name properly. Seriously, I dread being asked my name because i either roll the r a silly amount or sound like I'm badly attempting an American accent πŸ™ˆ
2. I am what I've always wanted to be! As a kid I always said I wanted to live on a ranch with loads of animals and loads of children! (Though still working on the loads of bit to be fair πŸ˜‰)
3. I've always loved art and used to draw for hours almost every night. Now I use crochet as my creative outlet. I love designing my own patterns but it's also sometimes nice to sit, relax, and blindly follow someone else's!
4. I come across as quite confident when you meet me but I actually don't really understand social cues very well and find people sorta scary so I'm just winging it! Also the same applies if you meet me and you think I hate you (I most probably don't)
5. I have very variable health and spend a lot of time carefully pacing myself so I don't get ill. It is annoying but at the moment I'm the healthiest and strongest I've been since first getting sick and I'm making the most of it! 
I'd love to hear one interesting or funny fact about you if you feel like sharing below πŸ˜€

Every day, twice a day, she leads me to the rabbit pen to see her fluffy friends. Her love of nature and animals is already so evident and I'm so glad I get to share it with her. 
I have a new journal entry on the website exploring similar themes. It's called 5 Ways Waldorf Can Help Your Family Be More Eco-friendly and there's a link directly to it in my bio. Let me know what you think! πŸ™πŸŒΏπŸ’š

I am so pleased to partner with mama-made brand @kanthabae ,whose vision and values align so closely with my own. 
The story of hope through their partnership with Basha Boutique supporting women survivors is something I believe every woman can stand behind. 
Women supporting women is one of my favourite things. Even more than baby bunnies! 
Picture is an oldie from last year but one of my absolute favourites and featuring a beautiful Kantha Bae pareo that we use as a summer blanket, for picnics and for travelling.

The cuteness is getting a bit ridiculous now. Also, Mama's eyeliner is on point in the second photo πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‚

Peepo! 
Love that cute fluffy bum. I'm so grateful for all the cloth nappies and wipes we have been given by family and friends. We've saved a huge amount of money and done a bit of Earth saving too! 
We wouldn't have been able to afford the outlay to start unfortunately but if you can, and you've got time for a couple extra loads of laundry a week, I'd definitely recommend it as an easy way to make child rearing a bit gentler on the environment. And you'll save money in the long run, especially if you have more than one child. 
This is a @totsbots nappy, and we also use @littlelambnappies and @babaandboo.  Do you have a favourite brand?

This uncharacteristically hot summer is still going on and I am appreciating every sweaty moment of it, particularly now my chronic illnesses are the most well managed they've ever been. 
Since getting them, warm weather has been somewhat of a nemesis due to heat intolerance. 
But during that time I also developed a new found love for autumn and its cooler air and sweet provision of apples, brambles, elderberries and more. 
So it is with great delight that I'm starting to notice the first signs of autumn approaching. Alma couldn't resist this apple, no matter how many times I told her it wasn't ready yet. πŸ˜„ #awgoutandabout

I fall in and out of love with crafting on an almost weekly basis. I rarely complete an item unless someone's buying it and I get bored childishly quickly. But it is nice to remember, every now and again, the satisfaction of a finished project. 
This wash bag is for a swap with a friend. If you would be interested in swapping handmade or vintage pieces with me, just send me a dm 😊

I'm not very good at growing flowers, and I don't own my home/garden, so I just take pictures of other people's to post on Insta πŸ˜‚

The direct correlation between number of babies in a litter and parental involvement in rearing the young is very clever. Rabbits are awful parents. 
But these two and their big sibling (swipe) are doing well so far and are the fluffiest little wrigglers you would ever meet.
Our litter last year all died mysteriously when they were older than these are now so I'm still not filled with confidence but if they do make it they'll make some lovely pets if anyone local is after a bunny. 
The second photo looks a bit sad, but that one is the biggest, friendliest, most confident one.

Eilidh didn't really sleep much at night until she was about 14 months and I sometimes look back on the 5 or so times I lost my patience with her during that time and feel guilty. I feel like I let her down and should have been super patient and never should have cry shouted at her to "go to sleep!" or gotten David to cuddle and shush her when really she just wanted me and my milk. 
But tonight I was starting to get pretty upset with her for taking a really long time to go to sleep, because though she still sleeps next to us and holds a hand to fall asleep, she really does sleep amazingly well now. And now that I'm used to that it is easy to have higher expectations and get more easily frustrated. 
Really I'm kinda amazed that when she was younger I didn't shout and cry more than I did! I rarely got free time in the evenings, was woken every 45 minutes to 2 hours, slept in one position curled around her on my bed, wore her in a sling or pushed a pram for half an hour for each of her naps and breastfed through nursing aversions (though they were what stopped it in the end). So I've decided to give myself grace for those few incidents I've been guilt tripping myself about. I'm not going to feel bad about them anymore! Though I am still going to work on gaining some of the patience back that I used to magically have! 
Is there an area where you need to give yourself grace? This is your permission to do just that. πŸ’š
