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...

...a beautiful hyacinth, a gift from a friend, brightening up our table on these dark dreich days we are having,

...celebrating the new year with friends a tradition that has lasted many years and hopefully many more years to come,

...sharing food and conversations for three days with these friends,

...walks in the rain, we needed the fresh air,

...a decluttered and tidy kitchen,

...a phone call with my mum, invitation to join a friend to celebrate her birthday,

...the faces of my friends when they opened their me made presents,

...a safe and warm home


  1. Beautiful - this is how life should be lived!

  2. I could just about smell the scent of the hyacinth :0)

  3. Lovely gentle thoughts and gratitudes x

  4. Lovely things to be grateful for x

  5. Sounds like you have had a good week. And I do love a clean and uncluttered kitchen, it's a thing of happiness! Glad your handmade gifts were appreciated. Hope you have a good week.

  6. What a great thing to do, to remember the things you are greateful for. An aside I know, but I love the use of dreich. I haven't heard that for a long long time and it is so descriptive and just right for the weather we have been having. Hope this week is just as good for you. xx

  7. Love is in the air, and the smell of hyacinth ;)
    Stay warm!!

  8. I love that moment when you have worked on a handmade gift and you get to see their face! Always makes the time your devoted to them so worth it! Your hyacinth is gorgeous! Aren't they the best smelling flowers?! Have a great week!

  9. Mmmmm... hyacinth is such a wonderful smell. And a tidy kitchen -- that's a really good feeling.
