Had such a nice breakfast meeting today with this lovely lady, Carina, the founder and dressmaker of Malinka.
Homemade scones, homemade marmalade and handmade dresses. All of it, so very delicate and inspiring.


Have you seen Vivien McDermid beautifully and award winning illustrated story is about motherhood?
See it online here.
