Things I'm loving at the moment...

Almost hours after I mentioned not being ill for three weeks I got a cold. I'm still coughing.

Actually minutes after I mentioned that the rain had stopped and it was beautifully sunny, it started to rain.

It turns out something I have suspected for a long time is fact...

I have actual magical powers. Opposite powers!

Clearly whatever I say, the opposite happens. I must use this wisely. I must make a cape.

So let me just say: I'm incredibly ill and there is torrential rain outside... (*psst* i'm lying)

Fingers crossed hey?

Anyway, despite the universe messing with my high spirits, thanks to the beginning of Spring my good mood has not wavered. There are lots of little things I'm loving and I've been storing them up for you.

I'm nice like that.

Early morning skies...
I wish I could always be a morning person but 'Spring just before the clocks change' is the only time I manage it. It's wonderful while it lasts.

Spring, did I mention I quite like Spring...?
Just a few billion times huh?
 “Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade.” 
― Charles DickensGreat Expectations

No kidding! Check out the hail stones that fell on the summer chairs (that I had put out prematurely on the decking). Again my opposite powers at work.


Loving water droplets on, well anything. They look like little gems...
Add reflections to the droplets thing and we've got ourselves a party...
Stumbling across this unusually calm bedroom scene one morning...

This incredibly angelic face...
This incredibly cheeky face...

My Mothers day stuff...
On the morning of mothers day I got breakfast in bed. The boys bounced around me like tiggers and Isaac asked what I wanted to do in the day. I answered that what I really wanted was to do some gardening. Isaac was seriously unimpressed saying we should go somewhere exciting. But that is what I really wanted. And it is what I did for most of the day while the boys played jungle around me. It was bliss and now everything hurts.

Totally worth it.

Tim also asked me on mothers day what I wanted him to cook for me, anything I like he said...

hmm I opted for one of his to die for homemade pizzas. He made me two pizzas because food is his superpower.

And they were amazeballs...

BBQ chicken with low fat mozzarella (yep still fat intolerant)...
And a seafood pizza with sweetcorn and low fat mozzarella...

I think I need to make him a cape too...

Also loving the return of movie night...
Which is as much for me as it was them. 
Movie: Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2
Movie night score 10/10. In our house the idea of food that comes alive is just too much of what we love.
Printed tickets from here and printed popcorn holder from here

Lastly as always I'm loving sunsets...

I'm also loving the fact that every photo in this post is taken using manual on my camera. That is a first for me and it's liberating as much as it is difficult.
