It’s the little things | A new camera and a funny toddler

I’m back! I skipped last week (thanks Lauren!) as life just got a little too hectic. Daisy was poorly and when that girl is poorly she sure knows how to milk it to her advantage. It was a “Yes Daisy, okay Daisy, how high Daisy” kind of week. So that was fun! BUT I’m happy to be back and taking the time to appreciate the little things that have made me happy this week. I’m also super happy that Daisy is back at preschool and not at home to drive me mad whilst I attempt to work (sorry Daisy!) Thank you to everyone that joins in each week – we hope you love appreciating the little things as much as we do.


A new camera – I’m SO excited. My new camera is coming this week and I literally could explode with excitement. I never usually get that excited over products/stuff. It’s usually holidays. But I’ve been dreaming of a new camera for years. My parents bought me one for my 18th, then again for my 21st. I’ve chosen to go with the canon 6D and I just can’t wait to test it out and dive back into the world of photography again.

A fresh bouquet of flowers – So no matter how many times I hint to Andrew that I just love being bought flowers – it never happens. I’ve quit trying and instead I just buy myself fresh flowers each week. I love a nice big bunch of tulips – particularly this dark pink colour. I’m so excited for peony season.

Funny quotes  – Daisy always comes out with the funniest things. She’s so intelligent and funny at the same time and the way she talks just cracks everyone up. I ate some bread yesterday and she responds by saying “MUMMY! No! You are NOT a duck”. The other day she said “Mummy, I think YOU are actually my best friend but I don’t think Ellie needs to know”.

    So very nearly forgot to link my post this week ?

    I might have to live vicariously through you and lust after your new camera. Although I hardly deserve one, I’m rubbish enough at getting out and using the one I have, and I’m a long way from being as good a photographer as you.

    They really are beautiful flowers! I love flowers and have also taken to buying my own although Reuben says he’s bought them for me which is cute.
    Glad to hear Daisy is on the mend! #itsthelittlethingslinky

    Your little Daisy’s quotes are hilarious and adorable in equal measure! And who doesn’t love a bunch of flowers (throw in some nice chocs and I’m even happier!). Your camera sounds great, hopefully you’ll get it very soon! Thanks for hosting #itsthelittlethingslinky
