52 Weeks of Happy...41/52

Thank you for the photo Abigail!


The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.

Joining in with the lovely Jen at little birdiehere are my happy moments from the last seven days. This week I am very thankful for the continuing warm weather and a welcome slowing down of the pace of life and some time

1. Time to get the paints out with Bella and Angus. 

2. Time to play with my god daughters.

3. Time to crochet - in the car, in a chair, under a tree - it doesn't matter. 

3. Time to wander arm in arm with John on a sunny day.

Wishing you all a very happy weekend.

Those paints are out again! Love the last photo of you and Jon. Me and Drew try to walk arm in arm or hand in hand, but often a small one comes between us

Your list of happy things to do looks a lot like mine: I DO love painting and being with the children (although mine are slightly older) and I absolutely adore the crochet. I do it everywhere. At this moment I am very in to plastic crochet . It works splendid in the sun (no sticky and sweaty hands from the warmth in combination with the yarn) and you can make alle kind of sunny things to place outside in this gorgeous weather.

I have just found your blog and having had a read through it has been incredibly interesting and inspiring. A knitter I will never be, but perhaps a crotcheter?

Looking forward to reading lots more and watching as things unfold in life for you.

Thanks for a great read!

Lovely photos as always. I really like the colour in the paints and the umbrella - could have done with the latter for one of the scavenger hunt categories this month! And like everyone else, the last photo makes me feel all soppy. x
