Five good things

Ray sliding over to my side of the bed when I had to go the the toilet to keep it warm because I was feeling really chilly.

Maltesers: shared. Jelly Beans: not shared (but only because Ray doesn't like them and not due to meanness on my part, no).

Tidying the garden together and planning for next year.

Ray telling me of a conversation with my Dad about our babies while my Mum and I were in the kitchen. I can't tell you how happy this made me. Alzheimers is slowly and cruelly robbing us of the gentlest of gentlemen but he remembered our lost babies.

Sending quiet love to our Poppets on the cool night breeze.

What good things found you last week?


  1. That's so beautiful, Barbara. I love how they float off into the sky.

    My 5 good things:

    Seeing my grandmother today

    Having the relaxation of our trip hold for a whole week of work

    Hearing the most lovely sentiment from a dear friend

    Being given a compliment on the subway on a day that I was feeling especially middle aged and frumpy

    Finding that running at the gym is easier after all that vacation walking

    Love to you.

  2. oh how lovely - we used to do balloon releases but those lanterns are just beautiful xxx

  3. I love Ray. He is such a good man and a wonderful husband to you. SO glad you found the love of your life. xxoo
