Food puzzles

Broccoli puzzle

Random question, but do you ever do puzzles? Lately, I’ve gotten into doing them in the evening, while chatting with Alex or watching Downton Abbey. They’re relaxing at the end of a busy day, and how incredibly adorable are these food ones? At 8″ x 8″, they take less than twenty minutes, and they’d make great little birthday or host gifts, too.

The Hunt show

After years of Peppa Pig and Bubble Guppies, the boys have finally gotten into a show that we’re all gripped by. The Hunt is a nature documentary series following animals, like polar bears, tigers and chimpanzees, as they target their prey. There’s so much strategy.

Side note: This morning, I walked Anton to school (no tears today!!!), and as we approached his classroom, his face lit up. “Look,” he whispered, pointing to his teacher. “SHE IS WEARING CHEETAH SHOES.” She had on simple leopard print mules, but in that moment she might as well have been in a full-on Halloween costume. :)

Joanna Goddard bedroom

A few years ago, Alex gave me a bunch of quirky socks for Christmas, and I’ve become hooked. It’s weird how such a little thing can brighten your day. Here are a few cuties out right now: face, dots, astrology and sheep.

What are you up to these days? Hope you’re having a good one. xoxo

P.S. How to introduce someone, and the hardest tongue twister.
