Feeling greatful 

So I’m back after probably the longest break since I started this blog. It’s been a busy couple of weeks and the one word that springs to mind is greatful. 

I’m feeling greatful for the time T had off from school so we could use it to play, make hama beads, watch films and spend time walking Poppy together. 

For the high winds we had Sunday following on from the storm on Thursday so we could go and watch Scott fly the kite and laugh our loudest laughs at him being pulled along and then eventually right over with the wind! 

For time with my best friend, catching up over a few glasses of wine, watching strange but funny films and just enjoying girly time hanging out together. 
For Sunday evening meals at home in the warm with the heating on snuggling on the sofa all 3 of us together. 

For friends who can make time to spend with us, whether it’s to go for coffee or come over lunch I’m forever greatful to have a good base of people around me I can sound off to about anything on my mind and get honest advice.

For T to have such sweet little friends, I love to see her happy playing with her toys with friends, racing scooters or creating art for a friend and just seeing her pick them up and squeeze them to say bye makes me smile.

For my hard working husband, for who the hard work is finally starting pay off and is at last getting the recognition he deserves. Whether that means some tough choices to be made in the future we will see but whatever the decisions I know we will make them together.
Finally for this weekend, tomorrow we head back to Devon to the lodge we call our happy place. We are staying there for 4 days and plan to get to a few places in and around Dartmoor we haven’t seen before as well as stop off in Exeter for some shopping. This is our first time taking Poppy so it will be slightly different but I’m looking forward to showing her hills and scenery! (Where we live is completely flat and there and are certainly no wild ponies!) We are so ready for this busy weekend along with getting time to relax and enjoy just being together as as a couple, not parents or employees, just us and the puppy, should be bliss! 
Have a great weekend everyone

  1. 😲😲😲 Ours are called perler beads and I love them! My fave is melting them around the edges of tiny cupcake tins to make ice cream cups (fake of course). Please tell me u had a template for the dragon. If not you are the master!
