Well the grateful moments for the week - said 14 year old embracing the fun run and doing the 5K - the fact they got sidetracked in the kids playground and arrived back via a detour was just an added bonus!
Next grateful is one of those serendipity moments, said 14 year old said "where are we going to take photos for our painting challenge" - followed by confused expressions of parents! Ohh yes we did say that - fun run happens to be 20 minutes from Hodsock Priory which had it's last snowdrop weekend - so we put two and two together and toddled off there! So why serendipitous? Well I'd never heard of Hodsock Priory until Friday last week when a colleague mentioned going there to see all the snowdrops - I love it when life gives you a prod like that don't you - sometimes its easy to ignore the prod - or maybe not even realise what it is - but it is a prod for you to act on, keep an eye on life this week to see if you can spot it prodding you!
Next up fresh air and an outdoor fire!
Hot chocolate on a cold day
Hot chocolate with marshmallows made it nicer
Hot chocolate with marshmallows and a chocolate stirring stick made it perfect
Further grateful hot chocolate added extras - weren't added extras cost wise!
Family selfies in front of some of the snow drops!
Wintery skies and those bare trees
Snowdrops up close
And beautiful gate houses which we weren't allowed near as there was a wedding going on!
These two winding each other up!
And cuddles with hubby - extra special as I write this as he's had an op today (thursday) which hasn't gone quite according to plan and they are having to keep him in overnight, we will know more tomorrow - to say I'm feeling a little anxious is an understatement!
More family selfies
Which took an age to take and had us giggling from ear to ear.
My cup from the other week all shiny and new
And said 14 year old's cup
