Moments ...


...this week of...

...happiness seeing in the New Year with old friends as we have done so for the last ten years,  cooking and sharing food with friends, a quiet day at home with nothing that I had to do the first day for weeks

...sadness at the lack of respect some parents have of their own children

...creating a few more fabric baskets, a sock, rows on a cardigan, a plan for January, lists of things to make, do and read for the coming months

...reading The Old Ways by Robert MacFarlane and to the children The Great Escape by Emily Bearn, and Father Frost a Russian New Year Tale.

...thinking about projects we can do together during the year

...wondering about a request my eldest has made which doesn't sit well with me but is that a reason to say no?

...hoping to find some colour in the grey that is often January

...enjoying this although it was nothing like my memory of the books!

...looking forward to being at home and settling into our rhythm

***************

I had considered stopping these posts at the end of last year but reading through them to put this post together made me realise how wonderful they are to look back on so I am going to carry them on.  

If you would like to join me you would be most welcome, either using my headings or you own, let me know you have written a post and I will link up to it..........

  1. your moments are lovely. my eldest asked for something a while ago (facebook) that I wasn't keen on. I told her she had to write me a letter explaining why she wanted it, and demonstrating her understanding of my concerns. I wonder if a similar approach would help, at least to see if it is really important to him or just a passing request.

  3. Just lovely. I, and we, are looking forward to settling into our rhythm again here at home. The last two weeks have been wonderful, but we all itching for the return to "normal". Enjoy your week.

  4. I like this format of a blog post. It may not generate the most discussion, but, to me, it is all about why I like to blog. Part of the reason I started. Capturing the moment and recording it. It may be the reason that like minded souls choose to read your blog, as it gives a brief insight into who you are.

    1. I had no really thought about it like that, thank you. It might sound daft but it has taken me a while to work what my blog is 'really' about and therefore who the like minded souls are too.......

  6. I like the letter idea, I think that will work well. I agree about the lack of respect for children. I see it often and it makes me sad too. In particular, I often see very little ones out all day long with no naps, or too late into the night, and I wish they could get the rest they need.

  7. I enjoy your moments post very much, so much that I might join you once a month or so. I can't really think of much at the moment, brain fog.

  9. I feel glad that you are keeping these posts going, they are gentle reminders to others of what is good in life.

    I'm so behind with my blogging after my break so I've just had a lovely catch up with your last few posts. May 2015 bring you and yours only good things x

  12. Good question re: your son's request. Often when someone asks me or does something that doesn't sit well with me, I "sit" with my feelings and try to work through what I am actually responding to - fear, distrust, intuition... once I feel I can identify the cause of the unease I find I am often better able to make the right decision accordingly. Good luck! xo
