Good morning friends. I hope you are well.
This week I am going to share #1GoodThing in every day of the last week. During Advent I did this purposefully on Instagram and it is fab for helping you to see that every day has joy in it somewhere. Now I am posting more sporadically but I'm super pleased to see lots of people have kept on using the hashtag on Instagram and there are now a whole ton of positive and gorgeous pictures under the hashtag of #1GoodThing.
Here are mine from the last week -
Thursday - I had dinner out at a local pub with my lovely friend Izzy and it was so good to be able to talk uninterrupted without the kids. We talked about everything and anything and she is a real tonic to me, helping me to see things more clearly.
Friday - Lunch with my hubby. Whilst the kids were at school he took a couple of hours off work and we headed to a local Italian that does a really good 2 course lunch menu. The food was exquisite and we didn't stop chatting the whole time and really deep and meaningful chatting.
Saturday - We took our Pastoral Group over to visit Knole, a National Trust site with a 1000 acre deer park. The weather wasn't brilliant but it was good enough to have a picnic outside and we looked round the house and had a wonder, feeding the deer. It was a great day out.
Sunday - We had church in the morning and then we stayed around home in the afternoon. Of course the good thing for us is that we live in 220 acres so home includes woodland, lakes and a tea room. Hubby and I got to have a walk alone around the lake and coffee at the Orangery too.
Monday - I weighed in blind at my Fit Club and had a really good exercise.
Tuesday - My parents arrived to stay for the week in the cottage on site. We got to have lunch and a coffee whilst catching up and then picked the girls up from school for a dog walk.
Wednesday - My husband and I are doing the Marriage Course at the moment. Not because our marriage is in trouble but because it is all too easy to take each other for granted and to stop really communicating on that deep and intimate level.We are really enjoying it so far and this is our fifth week.
