An abundance of Gratitude - Family, Walks and Time to Be

This was the beautiful sight that greeted us as we arrived back from a meal with
our pastoral group on Thursday night

Hello friends, so sorry I didn't get an #R2BC post live last Saturday.  Time totally ran away with me and as I had my parents staying I figured it was more important to spend time with them, than fret over a blog post. I know you understand.

As always I have so much to be grateful for -

Family to Stay
As I mentioned my parents came to stay at the cottage we have onsite here and this meant hubby and I got a night out to see the new X men film at the cinema, as well as going to a bible study and new church on our own. It's so great when they are beloved babysitters available.

JJ was happy to spend a night looking after their dog whilst they went to the cinema and the girls stayed up there and it feels like a mini holiday. We didn't do anything major whilst they were here as some days the weather was rubbish, but it is just good to spend time with them, chatting going out for meals and charity shop browsing for Mum and I.

We had a yummy lunch at Tottingworth Farm cafe in Heathfield
My new Job
I'm still loving my new job, I've done three weeks now, but realistically that is just 6 days. In my head I want to know everything now and be able to get on with it, but I know my expectations are too high! I'm enjoying getting out, doing something different, challenging my mind and having some time to myself in the car each way.

A Day to Myself
Monday was community day here and everyone headed off site and down to a local beauty spot by the beach. I decided to spend the day at the cottage where my parents had been staying and to catch up on some blogging work. It was a very successful day and I particularly enjoyed having a sausage sandwich for lunch outside whilst I watched The Good Wife.

Remembering to Breath
With working outside the home, as well as my freelancing, life does feel as if it has ramped up a bit and it's important for me to keep a steady pace and not to get too anxious about what needs doing. I refuse to go back to the levels of stress I had before I moved here. So I'm making sure I get out for walks, take time to pray and watch some easy TV when I feel like it.
