This week

We tend to have the TV on first thing in the morning and we watch Daybreak. I like to see what's on the news and find out what the weather's doing and we quite enjoy the banter of the presenters. It's fairly light hearted and often gives us a laugh which, in my book anyway, is a good way to start the day.

There tends to be an item that would appeal to children just before 8am and on Wednesday they had The Wiggles on. As soon as they started singing they had Alice's attention :).  Later that morning Claire thought she would see if there any other programmes which Alice might like to see how she'd react. The next programme coming up was Dora the Explorer so we switched over and waited for it to start. It was so funny, Alice pushed herself up to standing at the end of the couch and was glued to the TV! She waved her arms around and chuckled and fake coughed (her latest attention seeking/happy thing to do lol!) Needless to say I had to get a photo to catch her reaction to her first chidren's programme :)

 More serious once Dora had finished
 Yesterday morning when I went outside I couldn't get over how many roses had come into bloom! The scent from this rose bush is wonderful - we can smell it as we walk out the back door and I wish I could bottle the perfume!

 Another day or so and this one will be the same :) 
Then a final photo of Alice just before she and Claire went in to town this morning. She also got to wear the little cardigan I finished the other day, for the first time. :)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend


  1. Our roses are all coming into bloom as well....I just love them...and one in particular has a gorgeous scent.Love your photos.
    DS watches a lot of nature programmes.....and says that A is now hooked as well!!

  2. My Nieces grew up with Dora and absolutely love her. My little angel also loves her too. If you ever get a chance to watch The Imagination Movers with Alice, she may take to the music, it's very catchy. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. The cheeks on your little granddaughter are too precious-she is adorable!

  4. Loved seeing Alice watching The Wiggles. I like them too!! What a happy way to begin her day and who doesn't love music?!

    Yellow roses are my favorite and yours are beautiful. Don't know why all the roses I've planted have been red or pink. I need some yellow.

  5. Your roses are beautiful.

    Little E's current favourite is In The Night Garden, Alice should give it a try!

  6. Your roses are beautiful. While we were away, spring burst forth. Everything is green, but our roses will be a few more weeks before blooming. Love the expression on Alice's face. You're so lucky to be there for all these day to day changes and developments!
