Simple Home Comforts

Pearl Barley and veg soup

walking adventure

toddler fun



This week has all been about home comforts. We have spent a lot of time in the garden, putting up our mini greenhouse and planting all our seeds, which will hopefully flourish into a lovely herbs and veg during the summer. I also made a very heart veg and pearl barley soup which is basically comfort in a bowl. We have of course been keeping to our "at least 30min outside" everyday no matter what the weather although it's been lovely and dry this week, which is a huge bonus. We have also been playing dress up a lot lately with Mr A either being a little Indian, Dinosaur or Pirate.

  2. I love the Inidan head dress, and you can't beat crusty bread and home made soup for comfort food.

  7. There probably isn't anything more comforting that a bowl of warming homemade soup - yummy!

    What a great idea about getting outside for 30 minutes a day - no matter what the weather. We need a kick up the backside for that one xx

  9. The 30 minute rule is such a good idea, a really great one to stick to. Being outside in the fresh air just makes everything better, doesn't it?

  12. There is a lot to be said for home comforts and I love a bit of pottering. It feels strange sometimes as I work from home - you'd think I would be bored of the house by the weekend!
