A couple of weeks ago I went to Bedford with my dad to see my brother, sister-in-law, and niece. Because they live a fair way away, and I don’t drive, I don’t get to see them all that often, and I hadn’t seen them since before Christmas this time! But it just makes the times that I do see them all that more exciting!

My niece Molly is three, and a entertaining bundle of fun. It’s never fun to listen to someone go on and on about any small relative of theirs, so I won’t, but I do love spending time with her!

I took lots of photos and so I thought I would share a few of them here.


Me and the little monkey herself. A little bit snotty, but a whole lot lovely.





I’m currently experiencing a minor obsession with trees. I can’t stop taking photos of them, for some reason. I would say that I particularly like bare trees, but I know that as soon as they start blossoming, I’ll be equally obsessed.




Lunch at the lake in the park.



Some topiaries we saw on the way to the park – the top one is clearly a teddy bear and a unicorn, and the bottom one is a man’s face, but I don’t think you can see it too well in the photograph!


Molly has the best slippers ever.


One of my favourite things about seeing Molly is just sitting and chilling out with her, especially when she puts her hand on my arm or leg while she’s watching television. I don’t know why I love it so much, I just do!

Talking of chilling out, I spent a bit of time doing this over the weekend; drinking tea and reading. Although I struggle to drink too much of my brother’s tea because he makes it far too strong for me!
