The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.
Hello there! Joining in with Jen at little birdie, here are this weeks simple, happy things:
- On Sunday night both children endured the weekly torture that is having their hair washed without screaming, or even crying. They just let John wash their hair. Incredible. This has always been a high stress activity in our household. I have to shut the windows in the summer when it's hair wash night, in case someone calls social services, such is the volume of noise.
- Homemade leek and potato soup. It was utterly delicious - made by John and eaten by all of us.
- For the first time, ever, I have managed to get an orchid to re-flower. They usually die on me. I moved this one to the bathroom when it stopped flowering - maybe it liked the steamy atmosphere in there? Who knows.
- Using up the Christmas food (one packet of puff pastry, a few slices of parma ham and a wedge of Stilton) to make these delicious cheese straws.
Thanks for your comments about the mouse bedroom, you are all so supportive and kind. Bella's mice are now demanding a living room and a bathroom but I fear these may have to wait sometime. I don't know how on earth I can make a bath or sofa out of a matchbox or bottle... And first I need to direct some crafty love in Angus's direction, I fear he is being left out!
