~ a mixed bag of gratefuls ~

I find it so much easier to be grateful when the sun shines and there are garlands of blossoms hanging across blue skies.

And I have so much to be grateful for this week:

*bathers ordered on ebay that actually fit and (almost) flatter 
{thank you Seafolly and your tactful ruching}

*I discovered a hidden pack of mini eggs 
{my favourites} 

*a fabulous day time trip to the cinema with my lovely (potential) sister-in-law to see a wonderful film (The Sapphires)
{we laughed and cried}

*the delight in my children's eyes at dressing up for book-week
{and their ongoing love of reading

* that my phone was revived by the lovely Apple man 
{and that my complete devastation at being sans instagram, email, contacts, camera etc was only very temporary}

 * a totally yummy haloumi salad for lunch from the cafe around the corner 
{my new regular}

Spring is coming.
Life is good.

    I'm grateful for studying going well and trip-preparing going equally smoothly...and always, my family and life :)
