Lately I have been feeling very grateful. So I thought I would document it here, so when I'm having a wee grey day I can look back and cheer myself up.
-- Spending lots of time with my Mama. Whilst Sebastian was away she cooked lots of delicious dinners for us whilst I entertained and fed Olive before she went to sleep for the night. We also spent some girly time together at the weekend and shopped for pretty things.
-- Having Sebastian home. He went snowboarding with his friend for 5 days and eventhough we had Mama visit us every day we did miss him. We have had lots of cuddles and spent lots of time together to make up for it.
-- Daffodils. Well they are bright, yellow and generally cheery flowers aren't they? Having them on my tiny kitchen table brightens my morning.
-- Hot cross buns/ fruit toast. Oh my, I love this stuff. I am SO SO hungry all the time at the moment- must be the breastfeeding (or so I keep telling myself!) and this is a great alternative to all the biscuits!
-- Hot cups of tea. Being a new mama I have had a lot of cold cups of tea but lately I have been lucky enough to drink the majority of them hot!
-- Sleep. I am so so lucky and appreciative of the fact my 12 week old baby sleeps through the night. I know it may change at any time and I'm making the most of every evening I get to spend with my husband and all the wonderful blocks of sleep she gives me whilst she sweetly dreams of milky baths, milky milkshakes and that leek toy!
-- Spring. It's definitely trying to brighten up out there. The warm and bright sun shining into the house in the mornings are really something. They are making me look forward to warmer days. Oh and the pink blossom on the twigs of trees.
-- Housework. Now Olive is self soothing and much more animated I am able to get on with basic housework tasks like washing up, cleaning, washing and ironing and it feels like such an achievement!
It's the little things like these that make me appreciate life more.When you're feeling a little grey or foggy why don't you write a list of a few little things that have brightened your day? They may only seem small but they are so so effective. I favour a simple life and the slow living method so these little things are really much bigger.
