Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, April 29, 2011

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

Loving whipping up a quick batch of pinwheel scones and everyone digging in while they are freshly iced and still warm.

The first fire this winter...

Pet shop visiting - a cheap form of school holiday entertainment!

Crochet beanies for barbie (I'm embarrassed to admit)...

Remembering that yesterday was my third year of blogging anniversary!  Still love it - especially the inspiration I find from you all out there and the wonderful friendships made.

Finally, my brave little soldier, who after a collision with her big brother on the trampoline a couple of days ago, now has 3 stitches in her tongue!  They don't usually stitch tongues, so as you can imagine, it was a slightly awkward procedure. We've been on a long journey with her issue with doctors, and despite the horrible incident yesterday, she did so well and was even smiling and waving at each nurse and doctor she saw.

I have made the pic below smaller than normal as not to offend any with weak stomachs, but if you are game, click on the image to see it bigger!

I love the pic of the hole in the tongue - the ouchie cringe factor is HIGH - and it cracks me up that you got a pic of it.. I can just see it "just hold still so I can get a pic for the blog" hehehe :-)

    SimaJ summed up what I was thinking about you getting a pic, reminds me of the time my eldest fell into the toilet and got stuck. He was wailing and I was bellowing "Hang on while I get my camera!"

  9. Yum! Those pinwheel scones look delicious! And BIG OUCH to your daughter that would of hurt A LOT!

  10. Poor wee soul! Trampolines, eh? When we moved to Australia all our friends in Scotland begged us to live near a hospital as our boys are so... erm... 'lively'! She'll thank you for photographing it, what a cool story to tell when she's older!
    Hope your weekend is accident-free!
