If we took a holiday,
Took some time to celebrate,
Just one day out of life,
It would be, it would be so nice!

Strolling without the stroller


One of the sanest, surest, and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others.

Frustrating search ends with the love giggles

So I couldn't find my keys this morning.  I searched high & low.  I phoned hubby twice (note that he is the forgetful one in this family...I was practically convinced he had taken said keys and put them somewhere random).  Eventually it occurred to me - I have an 18 month old who now walks.  Hmmmmm... "Where are Mummy's keys?"  "Carkey, carkey, carkey".  Adorable.  She didn't actually manage to lead me to them, but I did find them quite a while later inside one of her shoes.

I know many will be driven insane by used to this kind of behaviour, but it is SUCH a gem for me.  A first!  Anyone else out there in blogland with a cutesy story to tell?

Offerings for the fairies


Making me smile today (and every day really) is whoever thought to attach a little doorknob to this fascinating door in such an amazing tree!  We take Bean to leave flowers and acorns for the fairies and it is SO magical!  Linking up with Maxabella for 52 Weeks of Grateful.  Wishing everyone a peaceful weekend. xx

Problematic thinking much?

The problem is not that there are problems.  The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.

Nerves and butterflies are fine - they're a physical sign that you're mentally ready and eager.  You have to get the butterflies to fly in formation, that's the trick.
