  1. ...hopin that 2018 will be a wonderful year for you.

  2. Hi Jade, I really should start noting one positive thing a day too, no matter how simple they are. I started wrapping prsents the week before Christmas and thought I was one step ahead! Reading in bed forst thing is a pleasure especially when you don't have to get up and the weather is miserable outside. It's not something I get to do often either... As children I have fond memories of pond watching in our garden pond, Dad would put a couple of tennis balls on the surface in winter so the fish still had airholes and I found it fascinating. This time next year I hope your posd will be bringing you and your family the same simple joy.

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.


    1. Ah, thank you for sharing those lovely childhood memories Deb - the pond is now complete, for the most part, and much joy is coming from it already. I'm looking forward to the warmer spring summer days, sitting out there, passing time etc.

      Thank you for hosting!
