I’ve just read a wonderful post over here. I adore this blog, her outlook on life, her words, her photos.
It made me feel like I needed to write something today so here I am.
The day did not start as planned. We were out last night at Gav’s uncles Diamond Wedding Anniversary do. Diamond Wedding! Consequently we were home late and I slept in. I hate sleeping in (actually I LOVE sleeping in!) because the rest of the day seems over too quickly somehow and I end up shortening our morning walk so I can get home for that first cup of coffee. Then while Bud and I were walking our shortened walk I got a text from my older niece to say she was visiting my Mum with our newest addition, my great niece, so the walk was shortened even more and off I went to see them all.
I got my first cup of coffee there while I watched this 11 month old walking and laughing and being so crazily stubborn about going all those places she shouldn’t. Looking quizzically at an old toy phone my Mum brought out then at a mobile and wondering what the old one was. Technology eh? She doesn’t recognise an old phone! Anyway, it was an hour of loveliness and a timely reminder to live and love and enjoy even on days that don’t begin quite as we’d hoped.
