Trawling through my photo backups the other day I rediscovered this photo from a post I did about 5 years ago. My boys' lovely little playroom in Sydney. At the time my eldest had just turned 5 and his brothers were 2 and a half and 3 and a half.

This was such a happy little space, where we all hung out together, playing Lego and trains and running out to the garden.

I'm so happy I still have this photo, I have other pics of them playing away in here which are precious too but this is what it looked like freshly tidied before the chaos descended upon it each morning.

My boys have outgrown most of the things in this photo but we still have the bunting so lovingly and painstakingly created by me over a 2 year period ;-) and some of the other little bits and pieces. I love the stage they're at now, witty and full of ideas but I do feel a little ache when I think of how tiny they were playing in this room and how quickly 5 years can pass.

If you never saw the full post and would like a look you can see it here.

I love so many items here and many bring back some great childhood memories for me. I am a baby boomer. :) Warm greetings from Montreal, Canada.
