WEEKLY GRATITUDE

It's Sunday! I do love our little Sunday catch ups, don't you?

Spring is really starting to show its head here, with some tulips opening up in the garden and our blossom tree going from bud to flower seemingly overnight (and it smells so beautiful). When the days here are sunny it feels like we could be in the Mediterranean; just the sound of the sea in the distance and the birds and the smell of the fresh air. It really is heaven.

Here's what else has been going on this week:

:: I'm gradually making more time to read again (where are the days where I would devour a whole Harry Potter book in one day?!). Finally I am settling in to reading the second book in my collection by Rebecca Campbell, 'Rise Sister, Rise'. I would like to go into more detail in a blog post about both her books as I love them, so I won't go into many details right now, but if you like spiritual (and very inspirational) reads, then definitely give them a go. I would recommend her first one as an initial read, 'Light Is The New Black' as it is a little less intense but still so stunningly beautiful. It is wonderful to be taking on board some new information. I used to be an avid reader but am just too busy these days, it's crazy really. I would like to be able to pick up a fiction book again but, as time is so precious, I feel I want to be learning something when I do pick up a book. Maybe I should get a fiction book on audio book for when I paint. Any suggestions of a good, lose-yourself-for-a-while, book would be appreciated!

:: Yesterday afternoon, whilst still recovering from a migraine from Friday, I was having a little nap on the sofa, when our lovely little bear curled up right next to me and fell asleep. I woke up an hour later with her paw pushed up against my face. When I was in the middle of the headache from hell on Friday afternoon she didn't leave my side. It was so cute.

:: My lovely hubby bought me Ed Sheeran's new album this week. It was a lovely surprise. I don't get CD's anymore and felt all retro getting a new one :-)

:: Watching Joe play guitar always makes me so happy; I am so grateful to have this gentle, calm and super talented man in my life (and he is grateful to have this ^^ new guitar in his life too!).

:: Popcorn treats. This must be the 100th time I have mentioned sweet and salty popcorn on this list, but who cares, it is yummy!

:: The smell of wood-smoke outside, I really cannot get enough of that smell!

:: Yesterday Joe and I went into Truro to have a bit of a mooch. We went to the cathedral, which was so calming and beautiful; I really love exploring churches and cathedrals, the history and architecture is fascinating. We went to town to look for a guitar that Joe wanted to try and to get a couple of things from an art shop for me. I looked on-line before we went to see what art shops were there and found Truro Arts Company, but didn't expect it to be so amazing! It has a big art store inside the building, with everything you could imagine, plus a space where they run art workshops and a sweet cafe with the most wonderful food! I had an open sandwich, with roast vegetables and a fat free strawberry milkshake, made with yoghurt (it was delicious!). We spent a good hour and a half in there and it was heaven on a stick to me!

:: Walking on the beach after work has become such a great routine. We try and do this a few times a week come drizzle or shine (not rain!). It is such a nice, relaxing way to end the day.
