This Saturday I’m grateful for a little bit of family time. Time over a weekend to just stay at home and potter is so ridiculously rare at this house. There always seems to be something going on and somewhere we need to be.
I love to savour and breathe in the little ‘everyday’ moments, particularly in the backyard – spending time outside is just good for the soul.
Although these photos were obviously not taken in the past week where there has been more rain than sunshine, as sad as it may sound, hanging clothes on the line is one of my favourite household chores. I find the time to slow down and reflect, with the kids playing around me and letting the chooks out for a run rather therapeutic. Hanging clothes over clothes horses over vents throughout the house, does not have quite the same appeal or aesthetic…
I’m also grateful for these two gorgeous little kids who I get to hang out with during the week, while their big sister is at school and their Dad is at work. They really are so different to each other in so many ways, but they are the best of mates to each other at only 15 months apart (yes, we are insane) and they really are very good at amusing themselves without my help. Something I am truly grateful for.
Remembering that he likes things to match, he quickly amended his ‘peg fingers’ to more suit his slightly OCD tendencies. This quietly observant and kind hearted child finds himself in the middle of two loud & bold as brass sisters.
Grotty, full of cheekiness & spunk, dressed in her favourite pink “ballet dress” (thanks Kate!), constantly talking & always in an animated fashion – these images typify so much of what I’ll remember of this little one at this age (which is of course the number she is holding).
What are you grateful for?
