… I have been hiding out a bit, in both the online and offline world. Life has been a little hard-going, and I’ve needed the time to just step back and be – still.
… I had my husband home again, and it has been lovely sipping cups of tea alongside each other and turning off the lights together before bedtime.
… we have been indoors a lot due to the constant rain. On Thursday I brought out the Play Doh, and Pete had his first proper play. It was so much fun watching his fingers poking, prodding, pressing and moulding. Naturally, he also tried to eat it.
… I have been reading chapters 1 and 2 of The Big Picture Bible to all three boys. Even Jamie seemed happy to take part, with his constant cooing and babbling.
… I noticed how big Jamie is getting, and how he will soon outgrow the cradle.
… I have been laughing out loud as I read old letters and cards, dating all the way back to primary school. It reminded me of how much I love my school friends, and how precious those school years were – when our lives were consumed with the simple joys of learning, studying, joking round and laughing.
… I finished designing two photo books which are now waiting to be printed. They complement the memoir book that I recently completed and have similarly been two years in the making.
… I have culled, de-cluttered, re-organised. And loved it.
… I have grown increasingly excited about a new idea.
… I have loved watching Angus and Pete play and laugh with each other. They are such cool brothers.
… Jamie turned four months, and every day he continues to make my heart sing.
… marks the end of our seventh year of marriage, and the beginning of our eighth.
… has been another week to be thankful for.
