1. Strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar.
Have you tried them?
They are to die for.
A friend of mine, who has two beautiful boys going through a very tough time right now, suggested this yummy snack.
She is just amazing and has managed to keep swimming through everything.
I’d never tried that combination of sweet and sour before but now I’m hooked
(and so are Immy and Lily)
2. The imagination of a child (or in my case children)
Driving through the rain on the way home from school, we discover a rainbow ending in the middle of the road.
I excitedly tell Ivy and Noah that we are about to drive through the rainbow and they both hold their breath.
I count down to impact and as we drive through Ivy’s eyes close and when they open again she says “that was magical!”
Noah looks around the car and his shoulders slump “Was that it?” he asks, “I thought I would at least turn into a leprachaun or something.”
3. Colour on a grey Winter’s day.
Nothing like a pair of rainbow boots to brighten up your day.
Shame they don’t come in Mummy size.
4. Being with family.
Some days are crazy busy in this house.
Some are long and lazy
but I always feel happy when it’s like this;
All of us together.
We might be doing our own thing but when we are all in the one place everything feels right.
At six, Ivy was the same height that she was at five and a half – 96.6 cm
and four months ago, when we started the growth hormone, she was pretty much the same.
Now the small girl is only the teensy tiniest little bit away from hitting 99cm.
That’s and extraordinary amount of growth
and Ivy is very very happy with that
and that makes me feel happy too…
and want to go shopping!
What has made you feel happy this week?
