the best mess

To you this might seem like just a whole lot of photographs of a messy baby making an even bigger mess and foolish parents who let him drink from a cup in the first place. To me, this is the enchanting blow by blow account of my son’s very first babychino. Naff as they may seem by title,  as a hard core coffee lover, this was one of those moments I had being looking forward to for quite some time.

I do look forward to the time where he is able to hold the cup on his own but for now I hold dear his total delight in this experience. Sometimes it is easy to forget what a privilege it is to witness a tiny person experience something new almost every day. To us it might only be frothy milk and chaos but to him, it is one step towards being able to join in with us and understand the world in which he lives. He had a complete riot over this little cup of milk and so I wanted to celebrate this small but special moment with you all.

Thank you to the staff from Boston Tea Party for making the nicest little drink for my wild thing and for helping us to clean up afterwards!



Life lately: Bristol


Due to various theatre projects, we have spent a good part of the last month shuttling back and forth from my home and family in Bristol. It was time very well spent, spending some time with my brother who was home from Berlin and introducing Forrest to his great grandparents. Here are just a few photographs from a whirlwind couple of weeks.

i’ve been going to this cafe since I was a teenager and always bring their flapjacks home. 

Lots of family time with my beautiful ma and my now not so little brother.

finally welcoming spring and balcony mornings with hot coffee

Different generations meeting for the first time. A rare and irreplaceable moment in time.
