I know it is really important to have an attitude of gratitude and appreciate and acknowledge the lovely things in your life.
Oh I really don’t have an instagram perfect life. Last week involved a tooth out a worrying hearing test, a big family row and a washing machine breaking down twice.
But my last few weeks also contained many bits of lovely and I need to give space and time to acknowledging that
I love art it makes me smile to see, it moves me pause and sigh in such a good way. I do not make enough space in my life for it. This week I reviewed a host of prints form Desesnio and they have filled my home with some lovely new art, This bunny has to be my favourite.
Lise and I learned to felt this week and made this little family of penguins. I just adore crafting and it always feels such a bonding time with my children.
I have been slimming and this weekend I received my 2 stone award from my slimming club . I have 4 stone left to lose till I get to a healthy weight. I am on it and motivated. Easter consisted of flowers for me instead of choc but oh how happy flowers and this weight loss make me.
Our long winter neglected garden needs bringing back to life with some warmth and some planning. We have begun and I cannot wait to see it flourish. We have so much to do from plug planting to woodcare of our garden furniture but it’s a labour of love becuase come summer we will be so happy.
Organising my home
Organising my home is an ongoing project and yesterday I tackled my desk. I love this little space it brings me a connection to the big wide world, a way to make money from home and a chance to write and create.
I am playing John Denver’s Country Roads again and again right now because I am learning it on the guitar and I just love this song. It reminds me of my mum, of simple times and appreciating where I live,, of appreciating home.
Hope you have a had a week filled with bits of lovely x
Linking up with the very lovely …
