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...

...our singing group starting up again, my youngest loves this

...a lovely birthday party for a friend of the children

...time for sewing

...catching up with some friends we had not seen for weeks

...salad leaves from the polytunnel

...a clean and tidy house

...support when I needed it

...an afternoon in a bookshop

...help when looking for something I needed in a shop

...reading time before bed


  1. How lovely that you appreciate such simple things. We could all learn to do the same I think and there always plenty of such things to be found if only we take the time to slow down and reflect as you do.

  2. I used to love taking mine to singing groups when they were little. Such happy, happy times, thank you for reminding me. Lucky you, picking fresh salad, I'm very envious! I wouldn't mind an afternoon in a bookshop either. I hope you all have a good week.

  3. Such a happy list...a clean and tidy house, browsing in a bookstore. Catching up with friends is always so much fun. I hop you have a great week.

  4. Sounds good especially salad leaves from the poly tunnel and the clean and tidy house, makes such a difference when we are not wading through stuff!
