Grey day Gratitudes

  • This fever is passing quickly!
  • I didn't visit & contaminate my ill friend (cancer)
  • We managed some child-free silliness on saturday night.  Heroes & Villains birthday party
    Beloved Husband & I as Highway Robbers
  • My hard working worms have made this for me.
  • that my kids can find some fab play even in the chaos of a small building site garden

I don't know why Bini's play usually ends up in leotards or tutu's, but I love it!
  • Bini went through her overspilling clothes box, after 2 different sets of well dressed older friends gave her bags of clothes, and did a very serious & grown up cull.  It now all fits in the boxes.  Just.
  • Epsom salt baths
  • Hot water bottles
  • The fact that despite my best efforts to keep the seville orange separate, with help from Beloved, they found their way to the fruit bowl.  Hilarious results.  But no marmalade. Yet.  It will be a smaller amount if & when it happens.
  • My wonderful, step in to the breach, husband.
  • And my sweet kids who put up with Mummy lying in bed being boring
  • My great friend Dell, who took Roo off my hands on my worst day & picked up the other kids from school & even walked them!  And she bought me home cooked supper.  What a friend!
