I read a lovely blog - Wooly Moss Roots and every Sunday Taryn writes a post entitled 'Gratitude Sunday'. I thought I would share the love..
This week I have been grateful for :-
~ The start of the school holidays and the inaudible sigh the household felt at the realistation on Friday night, that we are routine free for 6 weeks.
~ A day visit from my parents and all the little bits and bobs they do when they are here, that I never think to thank them for until they have gone home.
~ A weekend visit from my sister in law and the time she spends with the children.
~ Celebrating with my newly babied friends, the ups and downs, but mostly the triumphs.
~ My sister in law staying at our house, and allowing Paul and I to go out on our bikes together. We often rue the fact we didn't do it before the children arrived, and now we are so grateful for each ride - I can count the number we have done together and alone, on one hand!
~ The NHS and a scan date through to look at my weird menstrual goings-on.
~ Getting a sunburnt neck - finally the rain has stopped!
~ Niamh's total and absolute confidence in my ability to catch her. She will climb up on a wall and precariously walk along it with her hand shoved in the air, knowing I will take it and make her safe.
~ Brenna's fiesty temper, it is usually shouted about the house, but this week was used in defence of her older brother.
~ Lochlan's generosity. Nothing is too big, too small, too much effort and he'll even give you a cheeky smile to boot.
~ Paul. I love you. I love the shake and bakes, the tinsel and the challenges x x
