Grateful that Spring has sprung

Like many, the main thing I’m grateful for this week is Spring. Such glorious weather whilst I’m feeling otherwise unwell has cheered my spirits no end. A little vitamin D never goes astray either.

I’m also very grateful for this space in our front yard. For some reason gazing at these two trees soothes my soul and fills me with a sense of sublime happiness. One of the few things I will truly miss about this house (if we ever leave!)

I’m grateful for the shade they provide for my boys to play in, me to laze in and for us to have our special little picnics.

I’m very grateful for grandparents who rescue energetic, non-stop talking preschoolers from grumpy, intolerant  tired, sick mummies, and for toddlers who are easily placated by DVD’s and popcorn.

And I’m ESPECIALLY grateful for this little machine…

Not sure how I could ever survive without it!

What are you grateful for this week?

Linking up with Mira Narnie who is hosting Maxabella’s “Grateful For” this week.



  1. Your dustbuster must be better than mine. My one chokes on popcorn! I love our big shady trees too. Looking forward to the leaves to come out and warmer weather for picnics.

One of the things I love about blogging, and I didn’t know about this before, is how great the photos I see are and how inspiring. Love the backyard with your tress of serenity.
