Joining in with Taryn for her heartfelt Sunday tradition.

A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful.

This week I have been grateful for...

...being able to join friends for their Michaelmas celebration,

...our weekly singing group,

...some advice on what to do with the sheep fleece I have been given,

...a lift to a friends house,

...a restful day at home with the children,

...a friend looking afternoon the children in the library whilst I did the shopping,

...an afternoon foraging for blackberries and rosehips with the children, although we did not find any we had a lovely walk in the sunshine they hadn't wanted to go but loved it once we were out,

...a rare treat of lunch out as a family,

...a free supply of apples from a neglected orchard near to us,

...a lovely posy of flowers picked by the children,

...finding a good spot for foraging blackberries and spending the morning picking them,

...a walk in a woods with my youngest she is able to identify so many trees now it is wonderful.


  1. I find quite often mine don't want to go on a walk, but really enjoy themselves when we do. Odd isn't it. I had a couple of bags of free apples as well this week. I'm trying to decide what to do with them as they aren't brilliant for eating raw.

  2. Lots to be grateful for there, sounds like a lovely week :)

  3. Your own free apple orchard! How wonderful! I thought I had happened upon a similar find but on closer inspection, the fruit was too knobbly to use. Nice list!


Hello......would love to hear from you :)
