Weekend good things

Lots of good things from the weekend:
- a pretty vase of roses (Charlie chose these because she thought they looked vintagey)
- dying a beige jacket a beautiful blue and changing the button for one of mum's old ones (I will wear it now!)
- two lovely new books to read
- finishing another block for Charlie's quilt and starting on the next one
- loving having a fire on wet, dreary days, Barney loves it too
- Sunday lunch at my father in laws, yummy home-made pumpkin soup
- knowing my father is healthy (he fainted at soccer on Saturday and kept fainting when they tried to sit him up so he was taken to hospital in the ambulance with a low heart rate of 48, but was discharged late afternoon after all tests were normal.)
All these simple pleasures make my heart full of gratitude.  Wendy xx
