this is lemonade

A mindful, grateful, creative life: Life constantly hurls lemons at us. I’m on a mission to make lemonade as best I can, by God’s grace.

Finally Friday

I need to get back on this blog! I have loads of ideas but no opportunity. It’s not even that I have no time, it’s just that when I have the time it’s not always possible to get to the computer. Much as I appreciate the WordPress app, blogging from my phone just isn’t good enough.

So here’s the plan: I’ve spent the past 6 months since Baby Girl arrived, looking forward to Fridays. Because after Friday, is Saturday. That normally means that I have back up and don’t have to do everything by myself. Even if back up sometimes needs gently nudging out of bed…

So I’m starting Finally Friday. A short thought, that sums up the mood of the week. Or something that just came into my mind at some point during the week. Perhaps it’ll have a photo accompanying it, perhaps not. So….hey, I hope this plan works 🙂

Hi everyone! It’s Friday tomorrow! Watch this space 😀

Happy Easter!

Just popping in to wish you all a Happy Easter. Without Easter Sunday, there would only be Bad Friday and no good in the Easter story. So I’m thankful for God’s grace and for the hope and joy after suffering that comes wrapped up in the gift of Easter.

Another piece of good news that has less of a wide-reaching impact and more of a personal one, is that Baby Girl arrived last week! ♡ She was a tad early, and the birth didn’t go as we’d hoped, but words cannot express what a joy it is to finally get to know the little human that has been growing inside me for the last 9 months.  It was all worth it… and the poo and feeding and crying and lack of sleep hasn’t dampened anything… except perhaps the urge to blog 😛

So please forgive my impending absence. I’ll be back hopefully in the not too distant future (and resolve not to flood this space with endless poo reports when I return!) In the meantime, thank you for being there, supporting and encouraging me. Take care! X

Happy Monday!

It’s dull, gloomy, grey, rainy, windy, overcast, cold… did I mention grey..? I’d love to restart the day, eat breakfast again and have another go at it. Aaahh well, not an option… how’s your last Monday of January 2013 been so far?

Here’s to a good evening! Do you have any sparkly plans? I don’t know how yet, but I’m going to try and make mine sparkly and hope the sparkles last into tomorrow!
