I was scrolling around - trying to get more information on blogging when i came across a link called 'Blogs of note' which i clicked on. One that caught my eye was a blog called Three Beautiful Things. I really enjoyed reading the blog and thought that i might like to do a similar thing.
Taking an 'attitude of gratitude' is very important to me and i try to think positively, although regular readers of this blog will know that i melt down every now and again (that is the human coming out in me!!). So here i go - in an attempt to find and blog positive moments every day are my three beautiful things of today......
1. My family - today has been a really relaxed and happy conclusion to the school holidays. Everyone has been really nice to each other for almost all of today. This makes a huge difference to the mood/energy in the home. For this i am grateful.
2. Roses - there are lots of rose bushes in my garden that i made an enthusiastic yet disastrous attempt to prune last year - made evident when virtually none of the bushes bloomed, bar the odd determined one. This year i admitted defeat and was too scared to touch any of them and have been rewarded with masses of colour - i spent some time today marvelling at the beauty and perfection Mother Nature is capable of. Simply stunning
3. Sleeping in - i enjoyed a lovely lazy sleep in this morning, the last (bar weekends) for the next 10 weeks. It was marvellous to just lie there, nothing pressing to do at all today except shop for 'school food' and give 6yo action man a buzz cut. Aaaahhhhhhh - luxury......
Well that was fun.
I am only having a minor panic though as i seem to be unable to upload images!!! OMG - how will i cope???????
