I have been in a bit “Bleh” space this week… plagued by constant headaches, husbandless again and with children who have decided that sleeping is for wimps. Only their attitude (and mine for that matter) without said sleep leaves something to be desired!
As a result I was having a bit too much of a pity party on Friday to think of something to write for my habitual “Favourite Thing Friday/Things I’m Loving” post. I tried to make myself think of something, but when it came down to it I decided to flag it and have a nap instead. Probably a wise choice at the time.
So I decided to give this ago today instead…. in which case:
(all excerpts from my life over the last couple of days…)
** Hearing the sweet sound of my children playing and giggling together in the other room. Sister love – what a beautiful thing!!…
** Friday night sew ins with a good friend; chocolate, pyjamas, salt & vinegar chips, quiet calm & soothing company. A relaxed atmosphere where the conversation was all unspoken and unforced but I ended the evening feeling like I’d had the best conversation all week.
** Being invited to dinner by good friends. Filling our tummies with good food and our soul with good company. Watching our children play like long lost cousins.
** Sunday lunch with siblings in a place far away from where we grew up. Thinking how lucky I am to have 2 members of my immediate family living in Perth for this season!
** Skyping on the big screen TV with my Dad for Fathers Day and thinking how wonderous is technology – it felt like we were all in the same room!
** The laughter that resulted from a bad skype line. They may have been big but the conversation was “hil ar i ous ly st i i i l t e d d …. d… d… ha…. ha….”
** Blowing bubbles with the girls. The person who invented bubbles deserves a medal I think. Bubbles rock!
** Chocolate. Enough said.
** Having people say such nice & encouraging comments about my latest swap creations…. bless their little cotton socks…
|Latest Mugrug & pouch for my 2nd partner in the “Goodie Swap 2011”|

** The knowledge that at about 10.30pm tonight my husband is going to walk through the door. Shortest stint away ever. PHEW! Will be so nice to have him back home.
** Quiet time while the girls nap together in which to write my blog…
Plenty to be happy about this weekend after all the “Bleh!”…
How bout you? …. What is your “happiness is?”
