Over the last wee while my day began to revolve around putting one child to bed and getting the other one up. There seemed to be no time of day left for getting out of the house and do fun things. I felt myself turning into a bit of a recluse and it was affecting my mood and my sanity.
So I decided it was time for a change. This last week I have started to put Wee Man down for his afternoon sleep in the buggy. This means that we have been able to get out of the house and enjoy the simple pleasures of life and we're all loving it! Here are a selection of some of the joys that we have encountered:
... trips to the playground
... rolling down grassy embankments with Rascal, roaring with laughter
... walking to preschool
... stopping to feed the ducks
... enjoying the sunshine
... getting some much needed exercise
If you find yourself in a rut like that please know that there's a way out and the solution is often very simple.

But the happy mail doesn't stop there. The wonderful and generous Cat sent me this delicious baking all the way from Auckland.
Thank you so much Cat, you are a star and I'm proud to call you my friend! (... and yes, they taste as good as they look...)
