Last Friday, I went down to my Mum's with my big brother and my little (nearly 5-month-old) niece Evelyn. I was very lucky in that I got to see her two days a row. That tiny little bird really does make everything in life seem alright. It's funny how someone can do that without having any awareness of it. Seeing my family just makes me feel so safe and full of love.
I love the photo of Evelyn above, being very busy with her toys. She quickly got bored of that though. Her mind is so quick, I'm sure she's going to be a very clever little creature. She was a little grizzly that afternoon, but I managed to get the most smiles out of her :) I think it was the bright colours I was wearing, and the silly noises I was making.
After lunch, we went for a lovely walk in the sunshine. It felt like ages since we'd felt the warmth of the sun on our skin, and we walked around one of my most favourite places. We spent a lot of time here when we were kids. It was lovely to see all the new Spring leaves.
The sun lasted all the way into the evening when I got home, which was lovely. It didn't stick around long though - the weekend was horribly wet. I hope May brings us some sunshine... sick of this miserable weather!
