The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.
Joining in with Jen at little birdie, here are a few of the things that have brought me happiness this week:
1. Snow! It's still an unusual enough occurrence here and, Southerner that I am, I get quite excited. We had a couple of inches on Monday and what's left has been frozen solid by days of hard frosts and sub-zero temperatures. More is promised over the weekend. The kids would love to build a snowman.
2. My ski-jacket. I bought this a few years ago when we had our first really cold winter. I have never skied in my life but when I put this on I am so thankful for it's warmth, especially when I'm trudging to and from school.
3. We've booked a holiday! Well, more like a short break. And one without kids, even better.
4. I am thrilled to report that I've upgraded my tired old phone with it's useless camera for something a bit fancier. We've had lots of fun exploring the world of apps and asking it what the temperature is in Copenhagen and other such nonsense.
I hope you are all staying warm and having a good week. The good thing about the snow is that it distracts me from the January blues. Yesterday it was sunny and the combination of the sun and snow meant that the house was filled with bright, pale light. Lovely.
