Five things...

...I'm grateful for right now.
1. A sunny walk round a forest park with Son 1 and a soggy Raja on Saturday, while...
2. ...Ben and Son 2 had a perfect day's skiing!
3. Sunday afternoon spent crunching through a carpet of dried oak leaves at Ben's work, moving and cutting up dead trees which had fallen during the gales - and free wood to heat the house next year!
4. A sweet set of vintage rosy handkerchiefs from Relais Tout today. Did you know it was Rose Sunday yesterday?
5. My family and friends, in England, Scotland, France and Blogland!

By the looks of pic 1 spring has sprung in France too - certainly has in our little corner of England.

Such a cheery, heartwarming post. When you sit back and think about it, there is so much in our lives to be thankful for, even when we think times are hard and moan and groan.

Has son 1 been put off skiing for life?! Or is one break a winter Mum's limit?

There sure is a lot to be thankful for, especially when you hear about so many tragedies around the world.

Enjoy your week Floss. I hope you find many more things you are grateful for.
