The week that was...
And here we are at the end of a school holiday week.
A week in which I have alternately pulled my hair out and cuddled my three children.
A week where I have revelled for a handful of sleep ins.
A week where my twitter and blogging friends assured me that Olivia will, one day, ride her bike without training wheels. One day. Maybe.
A week where I have cleared up less shit than usual.
A week my my gorgeous lovely husband bought me an iPad.
A week where I smooched a lot with my son, who is the most affectionate of souls whose dry sense of humour just cracks me up.
A week where I have seen all my children paint and paint and paint and love it.
A week that I have been blessed with the company of good friends and wonderful babysitters.
A week where my youngest has has started to read. All by herself. Magical.
A week where the weather has improved, and whilst it has been cold, it's been gloriously sunny and I have walked some steep hills.
A week where I have tried out a new stationary spin cycle and quite liked it.
A week where I have had a respite from yoga, and have been relieved.
A week where I have felt a peace settle upon me for the first time in months.
I am grateful for it all.
I am grateful for my world. It's a nice place to live and be. I am very lucky. I am grateful that this week I have had the time and sense to appreciate all that I am surrounded by.
As always, I am linking up with my blogging friend Maxabella
Tell me, what are you grateful for this week?
