Three children (17, 15, 13)*** Two parents *** one dog *** Country loving *** Cottage dwelling in the South-West of the UK. That’s us!

We’ve been blogging since January 2010, about everyday happenings that bring us joy.

Just a thought….

“A moment spent in wonder is worth a lifetime spent in awe.”

Just pondering….

Just pondering. If I gave my very new 4 year old, a big cardboard box for his birthday, would he actually want anything more? Maybe some paint.  He loved his gifts, but ended the day with the box that I had used to carry them in. As happy as a four year old can be.

In all fairness, when I asked him how he’d like to spend his day, he requested painting, with me. How could I deny such a beautiful and simple birthday wish.

Also pondering. If these cabbage white caterpillars will have a slight tinge of blue in their white wings. After growing fat on my woad plant, this year. I love the idea, but realise it is unlikely.

Pondering why I have started so many new projects in the last few weeks, but have finished nothing…. On second thoughts, I know the answer to that one!
