Blog-anniversary -1 year old today
I have been wanting to post for a while but due to illness and school holidays and as a result fatigue, I just have not had the energy to do so.
Part 2 of my birthday seems a bit funny to talk about and seems such a long time ago, weird things have been happening since then - this year is not a good one for our family. Some years are good and some just leave you wondering what on earth have I done wrong in a previous life! Anyhow I have wanted to mention the joy that a few friends have provided over the past few weeks.
Last night my best friend from high school joined us for dinner, it was lovely. She arrived with a beautiful gift of the plant photographed, it has gorgeous aromatic flowrs. It was a lovely way to finish a weekend. I loved preparing dinner for her and our family. It gave me something to look forward to on another weekend where Hs work has taken over our lives. What I really enjoyed most of all was watching the enjoyment that my girls got listening to her reading to them in bed. Time is the best gift of all to kids.
On Friday I had a lovely surprise visit from Soph. How nice it is for a surprise visit, the kids were so taken that there almost needed to be 2 Sos' they wanted both to sit next to her. Soph did not see me in my best light I was struggling up the hill as both girls wanted to sit in the stroller at the same time. She kindly delivered E home with her. It is the small things in life like a friend extending a hand especially when you are not used to hands being extended.
I also want to make special mention to 2 friends who I have been lucky enough to inherit as a result of Hs work. B&A always make you feel special at birthday times and this year was no different. The focus was on providing a yummy meal containing some of my favourite foods. Also some beauty products and a puzzle for me. They remembered that I love logic puzzles. I did spend one visit at their place with the main focus being to solve what was classified as a mind bender. I was excited, I was thrilled my brain had not vanished with the kids it was still present.
Lastly Sadie and Lance a big thumbs up to the slice that you included on your blog. I visited my neighbour on Thursday and it went down a treat for both big and small people.
So when I reflect on my first year of blogging I have wondered on many occasions and more so recently whether to continue. Time will tell... still unsure. But my hope is that for the next year that life treats us all well, with joyful news enough is enough I say!
