Grateful for paté!

I have just come home from dropping my kids at their Nan's for the night. The first morning of the school holidays has been loud, setting my nerves tingling, my teeth gritting. There's been plenty of silliness, shouting and arguing, laughing and crying. I went to La Manna on the way home and bought myself some fresh bread, terrine and paté. Now I am enjoying the peace and quiet. I feel such a party pooper sometimes. I know children just want to have loud fun, but sometimes I have to hide myself away for a moment to give my ears a break! 
Bad photo I know, but I am grateful for every mouthful and every quiet breath! For now.......

Grateful For Bunnies

I'm listening to the kids jumping on the trampoline. That distant summer shouting that I love because it means they're outside and being active and I'm feeling grateful and proud. Grateful because my children are healthy and happy and we have everything we need. Proud because I have done most of this myself. I work and I pay the bills and although I have lots of help from friends and family to make it possible, I make it happen. I hope that doesn't sound self important. I don't often give myself credit but today I am! And we have bunnies!

Merlin and Arthur!

And they have a palatial hutch!!
