The Good Things

Yesterday Jess wrote a wonderful post about the little luxuries in her life at the moment, and it really hit home that I have so much to be happy about, so I thank Jess for the inspiration and here are a few things that make my life as wonderful as it really is. 

First and foremost my amazing neighbour. Our houses are linked by the garage, so whenever we need to have work done to the exterior of the house it has an impact on the house next door. At the moment they don't have the use of their drive due to us having the house repointed. 

I didn't realise the guy would be grinding out all the old stuff, that didn't happen when we had the same job done at our old house, so yesterday their car was totally covered in dust, as was their drive. I managed to catch my neighbour on their way out to apologise and she was so gracious about everything. A genuinely lovely person. 

Secondly my nieces, they came to visit yesterday, bringing the rabbits a gift of broccoli as well as drawing pictures for me. They were also very happy to see the plumber which made him smile too. 

Speaking of which, the third thing is this 


Finally for today, are those signs of spring in the garden.





Life is happening all the time.

  3. Sometimes we need to take a step back and be more positive, your post and of course Jess's reminded me of how blessed I am and thankful for all the wonderful things in my life that we take for granted.

  5. We are waiting for the weather to improve for our repointing guy to come and do our house and yes he will be grinding out the old stuff - I have been warned - it seems to be the modern way now - not looking forward to all that dust.
    Love the shower - I bet you do!
    It's lovely to see all the spring flowers making an appearance - but I hear from my mum (the weather guru) that there is another cold spell on its way - so I hope the new shoots don't suffer.

    1. The thing I dislike most about having the work done is that it has such an impact on other people, thankfully everyone I've spoken to so far has been great.

      The shower is wonderful, I'm trying to not linger in there too long!

    1. Hope your new neighbour is just as nice. I like to keep a low profile, but do chat with neighbours when I see them and everyone is very pleasant, after our previous house I really appreciate it.
