Sunday Moment - 8th May

1 & 2. It's been a fairly quiet week around here to be honest, Lots of little moments of loveliness, like an early morning bubble bath with my baby girl, or bedtime stories with Daddy. I am sharing these as a reminder (to me mostly) that these moments are precious and just as good as big days out.

3. Zoe's favourite foods at the moment involve some sort of dipping. Hummus and cucmber/pitta, fruit and yoghurt, fish fingers and ketchup. This girl loves to dip! Oh and also, I picked up this really cute picnic-ware in Aldi last week. Really reasonably priced and a lot cheaper than toddler-specific tableware.

4. Zoe and I got up with the larks on Thursday and went to vote in the local election. I feel very strongly about being politically active, even if the current political situation seems less than great, I hate a wasted vote. Although, it was slightly worrying that when I got to the polling station, there were 3 different votes being cast, two of which I hadn't heard about! Two people who came into the polling station after me thought they were voting on the European Referendum! There needs to be more information our there, and less bias in the media *cough*BBC*cough* - OK, I'll get off my soap box now.

5. I've been baking again! I feel like my mojo is creeping back. These are utterly moreish and delightful Lemon and White Chocolate Shortbread Bars - look out for the recipes coming to a blog near you soon.

6. I love this photo of Zoe, she has so much style and sass, it kills me. I mean, I know I dressed her, but she added the jelly shoes and hat to top the look off. Her personality is growing each day and I am loving seeing the tiny human she is becoming. Don't get me wrong, I am finding toddlerhood so much harder than babyhood, but thats just parenting, isn't it?

How's your week been? Anything exciting I should know about?

P.S I am sorry for the lack of posts this week, I am feeling a little bloggers-blocked at the moment, struggling to know what to write about, lots of ideas but no focus...
