The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.
Joining in as ever with the lovely Jen at little birdie, here are my happy moments from the last week:
1. Blue skies! Always a joy to look at and the feel of the sun lifts my spirits. We've had a mixed bag of windy weather this week, but today the sun is shining.
2. Some new reading for the weekend, and a delicious pile of magazines that I have not had time to explore.
3. The garden is slowly, slowly coming to life. We are looking everywhere eagerly for signs of growth and may even be able to pick a few blooms to bring into the house soon.
4. Asparagus risotto. We are having a meat-free week, although we are eating fish, and it's been fun and refreshing to try some new dishes and cook more creatively. Honestly though, I don't know how healthy that dish was - all vegetables taste amazing when cooked with a lot of butter and parmesan and drunk with a bottle of sauvignon blanc.
It's Saturday morning and it's John's weekend off. I am trying to shake off the tiredness that comes from two small people choosing to rise an hour earlier than usual - at the weekend too, thanks kids - and focus on the day ahead. The sun is shining, the sky is blue. It's probably freezing outside but never mind, we're British, we'll wrap up warm! The weekend stretching ahead of us feels full of promise. I'm going to make another cup of tea and some pancake batter now I think. Enjoy your weekend lovely people!
