Last hurdle

Certainly has felt like one fast hurdle race these last two weeks but I think I can see the finish line now and am feeling just a bit more optimistic about it all.... can even think about cooking.. inspired again at last-(fresh swordfish in a Maltese green pepper, caper and tomato sauce tonight) and the first type of local figs are in season.... so delicate and delicious! 
Must admit to having indulged in a wee bit of retail therapy lately..(thanks Zara) (the second photo is a dress I would love to buy but can't quite afford just yet). 
What can I say it's summer and for the first time in nearly four years I am not pregnant or breast feeding- bring on summer dresses!    

Also have at last been able to give my kids some attention- went to St. Antons gardens yesterday- they were thrilled to see the peacock strutting his tail, the turtles sunning themselves in the pools and the wallabies (small kangaroos) at the Melita cafe (the small baby one is well worth a seeing).  


  1. beautiful shot of your kids. and lovely colours too.

  2. Hey J. You'd look amazing in the Boden dress. You absolutely must get it. Where there's a will there's a way! I was so pleased to put on one of my Topshop sun dresses the other week. Again free from bump and breat issues. Friends complimented me on it so felt really good. Picked up Milo later that day and he got his foot stuck in one of the pockets and it ripped right off. Took a chunk of dress too. Carry on with retail therapy.

    Lots of love xxx

  3. I stumbled upon your blog through some other Madison-area moms' blogs, and immediately started to reminisce about the month I spent in Malta in 2000- fresh figs and capers from the backyard, octopus sauce over spaghetti, and, oh, the bread... Great to see some Malta architecture and scenery- makes me want to take the whole family on an extended vacation. Oh, and this is now my 5th summer pregnant or breastfeeding- I pine for cute little sundresses- maybe next year.

  4. Oh! I hear you! No summer dresses for the third year running. Harumph! You should splurge on the Boden dress, dear. It's perfect.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I always enjoy reading them.
