Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, November 25, 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...

The biggest highlight of my week would have to be dolphins!!  Earlier this week our family joined with others to farewell a precious friend of ours heading back home to South Africa (we will miss you Hanneke!!).  While we shared a meal at the beach, a group of dolphins turned up and put on a great goodbye show.

 Symon and our oldest boy even got to swim with them...

Loving my moustache straws...

Loving the excitement that flying a kite for the first time brings... check out that face!!

Loving watching the kids enjoy their first proper beach outing and family swim this summer...

Loving snuggle buddies.  I reckon that these "sworn enemies" are secretly best mates.  Remember last time?

Loving making my "Ugly Blanket"...

  8. I'm making an "ugly blanket" for my sis for christmas - I just joined all the left-over squares I had from my "crazy blanket" using light pink looks odd with all the orange and brown and green but I think the result will be good enough to be used for snuggling during horror-movie nights in DARK room :D

    It's yummy :)
