...this week of...

...happiness watching and listening to my children playing together, river swimming, harvesting our first peas, my husband getting a job.

...sadness my husband returning to being an employee as self employment has not proved to be the right job for him it will mean some big changes for us when he does actually start the job.

...creating more picnics, lots of rows of knitting on a cardigan.

...reading finished Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier, read the whole of Why be Happy When You Could be Normal by Jeanette Winterson I loved both of these very different books and could not put them down, now reading The Devil's Acre by Matthew Pamplin.

...learning about Romans, Archaeology, Greeks and Dinosaurs

...thinking about our plans for the rest of the summer and how we can fit everything in we want to do.

...wondering if the rain forecast this week is going to come, my garden really needs a proper water.

...hoping that we can fit in a visit to a local pick your own farm this week before everything is finished or picked!

...looking forward to visiting family next week and meeting my twin nephews for the first time.


  1. I completely understand the sadness. Either my other half or myself must find a full-time job, and I am dreading it. Hope you've had some rain now; we've had some here in the SW. Lovely happy things in your post, despite the sadness. Hope you have a good week.

  2. Greek mythology and dinsosaurs have been part of our learning here this week too.
    Hope things work out well for you with your husbands new job, it always such a big adjustment for the whole family.
