#202 A Favourite Revisited.

I had a sweet sleep in. Such a glorious way to ease into a new day. I know we have a house inspection on Wednesday morning so I decided to start on some deep cleaning today to make things easier. I’ll do a bit more tommorow. Decieded to make Mr Notebooks favourite Italian chicken meatballs…

#201 Movie Night!

Today has been good and I’ve been recharging my batteries. This has consisted of a bit of house work and some cooking. I have also been hanging out with all the kids, chatting and messing around. Everybody is quite chilled out and just happy being home. I’ve been having quite a laugh watching UK episodes…

#200 In the Evening.

Friday evening is here and I am hoping for a peaceful sleep and a lie in. The lights are low and our house is peaceful. I’ve got some sleep oil blend diffusing and some candles flickering away. Life is good. Wishing you a lovely weekend πŸ™‚ xo.

#199 Laughter and Light

Last night there was the sounds of laughter coming from every direction in the house. Some was tinkling, a tad was raucous πŸ™‚ It was lovely. Layers of the sounds of happiness that seemed to lighten up the entire place, even though it was evening and the sun had long since set. xo

#198 It’s okay.

It’s okay to try something different. It’s alright to try something new. The comfort of the known can call you and it’s okay to enjoy the familiar. This life is ours to be lived in joy. It’s true things will not always be perfect. It’s alright to feel the myriad of human emotions, they are…

#197 Music 🎢

Music is balm for the frazzled. It soothes and mourns alongside the broken hearted. It’s the soundtrack for fun, joy and every single emotion or situation you can think of. I am grateful for music πŸ’œ Stimpy πŸ’œ

#196 Frustration.

I often wonder how other people handle frustration in life. I’m usually wondering about this when I’m experiencing a high level of frustration myself and yes, I’m the kind of person who will google the question pertaining to whatever it is that I’m frustrated about πŸ˜‰ Chances are that someone has written about it and…

#195 Walking.

Sunday slipped by me. I went for quite a long walk in the morning. It was lovely just walking and listening to some favourite tunes through my headphones. There were plenty of birds, and while it was cold the sun was shining quite brightly. During the crescendo of a song, a brightly coloured Twenty Eight…

#194 A Mary Jane Quest.

Today I went into the city on the train with my Daughter. We went to Taka’s Kitchen, our best-loved Japanese restaurant for lunch. Our order is usually the same, one chicken ramen and one small ginger pork and whatever we are drinking. Today we got a side order of samosas, unusual fare in a Japanese…

#193 Killer Cooking.

Today I have been perusing the pages of The Little French Cookbook that I borrowed from the library. It’s a lovely little book full of information and classic french recipes. Most of my cookbooks are still in boxes in the garage because I need more bookshelves and I honestly thought we’d move twelve months after…
