Hooked, eureka and shopping

I am reading The Memory Keepers Daughter. It is simply, wonderful.

I have been grappling with an idea for my tutorial on Monday and I have finally got it worked out. I like it a lot and if it will be great. Such a sense of achievement.

Our fridge has been almost empty for the last 2 days, I just haven't had the opportunity to go shopping. Today, we are off, J and I, to restock and replenish, armed with lists and shopping bags. I shall look forward to lunch today. Yesterday's was dire!

feels like spring, lentils and anticipation

One of my hens moulting and todays warm sunshine means that I am feeling like Spring has sprung in our neck of the woods. The unseasonably warm weather makes me want to dust and scrub the dust and cobwebs away. All the windows are open and there are 2 loads of washing billowing on the line.

I have discovered green lentils. Never a 'pulse' person, I am loving the fact that these little green peppery gems are both super tasty and super good for me. few things are both....

Tomorrow I am going on a study day and R will be keeping the home fires burning. I am a bit nervous but also a excited about having a grown up day out.

show, home and sun

I went out and helped at a Baby and Child show. I spent the whole morning chattering to people about what I love. The whole time everyone was saying 'thanks for helping'. It was such a pleasure.

Came home and the children's faces lit up.

The sun; promised for the whole weekend but was a no show until now, has finally arrived and the world looks lit up again.

quality time, the happiness, calm.

Went shopping with my boy. He was such a pleasure to be with. We had lots of fun and everything went to plan. A lovely morning.

M has been very naughty the last few days. We have had to had lots of chats. Tonight, she tells me - its ok mummy, the happiness has arrived. I'll never be grumpy again. For a 4 year old - very profound I thought.

Yoga class tonight. One and a half hours of space to think, breathe and be just me.
