I’ve been given a break – Mark’s mum has Oliver for the afternoon and I am giddy. Not because I am putting my feet up. No, I am running around like a mad woman cleaning with a grin on my face. Pouring boiled water and cleaner into things that haven’t been touched in months. Washing baby seats and baby gym mats. After this little real break, a blog catch up, I am going to pack as much as I can to take to Canada and do more laundry. And start early on dinner! Wahoo! There is seriously something wrong with me when this stuff makes me so deliriously happy.

Friday night we had a break as well – Mark’s sister offered to babysit on her own accord so we made plans to go out for dinner. Mark found this place in his mum’s village, very near us, that is a completely randomly wonderful restaurant in the middle of nowhere. Bellows Mill also acts as a B&B. It’s a small restaurant with a small menu but we have had some fantastic food there. On Friday night I had grilled sea bream with baby leeks, parmesan mash and a creamy tomato sauce and I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I love this place, and of course it’s super convenient to drop off Oliver at a family member to babysit. We are going again for my birthday when I get back from Canada.

Gotta go, there’s a stovetop that’s crying out for a scrub!
