#3 :: a walk. Going to the shops along the canal and thinking for the gazillionth time how much I LOVE living in this sweet, picturesque little town.
#4 :: my new plant. Watering my new bathroom greenery which I really love but which drives J mad as it is always tickling his head he says.
#5 :: my lunch. Trying to practice mindfulness with regards to my eating as I had become a bit grab-and-stuff lately. This is my current fave thing to eat for lunch :: roughly chopped avocado and cherry tomatoes, mixed with a dash of olive oil, squeeze of lime juice, chopped corriander and liberal seasoning. I have it piled onto crackers/crispbreads/melba toasts and it is seriously mmmmmm.
#7 :: my wrist. I taught my neighbours six year old how to finger crochet a few days ago, and she has gone into production with my Little Lady producing woolly friendship bracelets. Makes me smile every time I glance down and see them.
#8 :: Little B's building. He made this Duplo tower all by himself this morning, it was accompanied by the sweetest chatter as he talked his way through the entire process.
#10 :: the morning light. Wow. The light was soooo incredibly beautiful this morning, streaming in through our bay window in a long golden shaft. I'm working on yarn bombing my old lamp to dress the Knit n Natter Lounge at Yarndale. It's crazy-good fun.
#11 :: my Little Painters. I had company at the table this morning when both Little B and Little Lady came to do some painting. Little B is very particular about how he uses his colours, I really enjoyed watching whilst I sat and crocheted at the table.
#12 :: sitting. Something of a little ritual of mine this holiday, I sit on the front doorstep with a coffee and enjoy a bit of hooky time whilst keeping an eye on Little B. It's not very comfy on the top step (I need a step cushion!) but it is elevated (9 steps up) and I like observing the comings and goings of our little terraced street as I work.
#13 :: flutter-butterflies. Loving all the fluttery butterfly activity on my budleia bush, makes me so happy to see them visit. I tried to photograph a huuuuge Red Admiral this morning but it fluttered away before I could get close enough.
#14 :: summer flowers. I picked this dinky little posy this afternoon from the front garden and it's giving me such a lot of pleasure seeing it sitting sweetly on the table. I have been feeling liberated by the lack of need in my back yard this year, but oh, I do so miss my little posies.
I hope you've found some bits and pieces in your day to make you happy xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
