I have written before about how important I think it is to stop and appreciate the simple things; the little things which warm your heart and bring a smile to your face. This week I have been grinning a lot and this is why:
I have washing flapping lazily in the sunshine and plants doing their thing all over the garden.
Bonus Boy and Darling Girl are already reluctant to come inside for tea and there are chalky pictures springing up on the patio.
The bucket pond we made last spring seems to have grown and we are VERY excited about this work in progress!
Yesterday I spent a very happy morning with a lovely man called Dave looking at tree ferns (more about this next week – it’s an exciting new project I can’t wait to write about!)
I couldn’t resist this as a delayed mothers’ day present to myself and I can’t stop looking at it.
The sunlight is finally reaching my favourite spot under the apple tree and when I have finished this post I am taking a large mug of Earl Grey, a piece of simnel cake and a copy of Country Living and I’m going to spend half an hour in the sunshine NOT DOING ANYTHING!
I can smell spring!
What simple things have made you smile this week?
