Weekend words

How great are children for reminding you of what is important?

The weather here has been miserable which has been having a big impact on what we can do on weekends. I am hanging to get out into the garden or out and about for walks or garden centre window shopping but the weather is putting a stop to that. This is having an obvious impact on how we feel, flat and a little bored.

 My six year old daughter though sees the excitement in so many things and reminded me just to focus on this the way she does. Every Monday she has to write at school what she did on the weekend and she started listing all the things she can write about for the coming Monday. She is so excited about the fact we had dinner at a friends last night, she went swimming today and built Lego towers and made cards with her brother that she then turned to me and said 'Mummy can we save Possum hunting (don't worry she means looking for possums at night with torches, something we did the other week) for next weekend as I have too many things already to say for what I did on the weekend' and it is only Saturday!

And here I was thinking we hadn't done anything. I will take a leaf out of her book and look at the nice things we have shared as a family instead.


  1. Oh Georgy. If only we could always see things through our children's eyes! Just precious. J x

  2. That is so lovely that an 'ordinary weekend' to you is such an exciting one to children :) I know what you mean though, I'm dying to get out and enjoy the sunshine, do some gardening, go walking etc. but as I type, it's drizzling with rain outside :(

  3. After looking over a few of the blog articles on your blog, I honestly like your
    way of writing a blog. I added it to my bookmark site list
    and will be checking back in the near future. Please check out my website too and let me know your
    Here is my weblog ... mcallen web design

  4. Hi Georgy, I love that your little girl is already using her journal as a gratitude practice.
