Simple Joys

Inspired by today's post at Marriage Hacks I'm going to stop being grumpy ~cut me some slack AF is here~ and find 5 things that give me joy. I challenge you to do the same. The rules are it can't be kids or spouses. C'mon you can do it..... it's only 5. Please share your list with me.

Today my list would be:

1. a cup of really great coffee
2. my slippers fresh from the microwave ~ warm and filling my nose with the scent of lavendar
3. the flap of a hundred little wings as the birds drunkenly make their way from their feast of red berries to my rooftop. Spring... can it be on it's way??
4. the sigh of a contented dog curling up on her pillow
5. silence... the quiet of the house when my family is all tucked in bed at the end of a long day.


  1. Thanks for making me think about this...

  2. I had to really think about this because so much of my joy at the moment comes from the fact that I am finally a mummy!

    So here goes:
    1. my favourite chicken is on special at my local supermarket this week. It makes it achievable to have this more than on special occasions... I have filled part of the freezer!
    2. our mailman now delivers daily. Yah for contact with the outside world
    3. It was not as hot this morning
    4. Warm hot cross buns for breakfast
    5. I have some time to catch up with my reading online this morning... the housework can wait

    No mention of Olivia or Grant... however:
    1. Grant gat a pay rise yesterday. Yah for answered pray on so many levels!
    2. Olivia is trying to roll over. It is so cute!
    3. Yesterday Grant stayed home for a few hours while I went to work. It was good to finish some of the things that are hanging over me
    4. Olivia gets Christened on Sunday. I am so excited about it I can hardly sleep
    5. The smile that greats me when I go to her cot is amazing!!!

    Thanks for challenging me!
