5 things that made my week a little brighter:
- THE PRIDE
The pride I felt picking Maia up from Nursery this week.
2. THE SHORT SHORTS
The joy of wearing short shorts again. – The fact that we even had the weather for short shorts. (Because today it’s grey and raining and I wore my thick puffy duffel coat..The short shorts days are over. OVER).
3. EVENING TRIP TO THE PARK
I took Maia to the park just before dinner. She was adamant she would walk either backwards with her eyes open or forwards with her eyes closed all the way home. She walked into a bush. It made us both laugh.
4. THE RE-PAINTING
We had some painters over this week to re-paint the outside of our house. (We’ve lived here for over ten years and it still isn’t finished, interior/exterior/garden, it’s all a work in progress). There were several disputes over the colour of our front door. (I didn’t really have a leg to stand on given it’s not actually my house…) – But I’m actually really pleased with the outcome. The outcome being my parent’s choice of RED. Yep, we have a red front door. Not a bright-blood-red thank goodness, but a deeper-dark-red. It works surprisingly well. It’s also much easier to simply agree with my mother on such trivial matters. Much, much easier.
5. MY MOTHER
Speaking of my mother. We may have our disagreements but the woman’s a frickin Saint. I could not be without her. I mean literally. Not only did she give me life, she also makes sure I still have my life, after giving life myself. If that makes sense. The kindest, most wonderful, crazy, hilarious woman I know. I love you woman.
Thank you, dear crazy Mama, for everything you do.
