i'm grateful for . . . things that make me happy

Greetings all,
I'm joining in with Maxabella Loves I'm Grateful For today . . . all the things that make me happy.  I'm pretty easy to please & today, even a $79 parking ticket i found on my windscreen for spending 6 minutes in a 5 minute zone while helping a friend out this morning, can't bring me down!!  Merry Christmas parking dude, you're clearly excellent at your job!!
Last night the Handmade Living. launch at the Shop was fabulous, today we're using the book for recipes & styling ideas for tomorrow's Handmade Living High Tea.
 Cake decorations make me happy!!  Thanks Donna Hay, you are also excellent at your job, in a much sweeter way than a parking bully.
 Love the relationship between my husband & our eldest, she's even starting to forgive him for buying her a massively baggy large Little Athletics shirt!!  My husband isn't trying to be cool with his hood up, he has horrible hayfever & we went to a Christmas Tree Farm today straight after athletics.
 My twins are best buddies, i love it, they are so different, they barely ever clash & their love for stationery & little desk projects makes for a happy weekend.
 At the Handmade Living. book launch, guess who won the Kellie Christie headbands lucky door prize??!!  How perfect, especially as i only took these two children with me.  Thanks Kellie, i can assure you they went to a good home.
 This girl, number 3, always stops to pick flowers, she lives in her own world, truly.
 Handsome soldier vacuumed today, without any request, true happiness!!
 Then he told me the shoes i chose to wear to a tree farm were ridiculous.  I tripped & slipped a few times, especially while fleeing the 3 spiders' webs i walked into.  He is always right!!
 Boys . . . do rocks & dirt ever fail to make them happy??
There you have it, so many simple things to put a smile on my face.  More on the Handmade Living launch later (when i can steal someone else's photos seeing the camera i took didn't have a battery in, d'oh) & lots of shots of our Christmas tree in all it's birdy wonder.  Love Posie

What a meany parking person!!
The book looks lovely. I'm hoping to check it out tomorrow if I can make it to the Market in Hobart as I believe they're launching it there. There is a couple of Tassie girls in it.
ps had to laugh about the shoes. They look very nice though :)

That was a lovely post to read. The boys will have wonderful immune systems playing in that dirt too! You have a beautiful family and an inspiring attitude to life.

After having four boys over ten years I was always fascinated by their love of dirt and rocks,oh and sticks! Miss B was like your two...loved stationery, stickers and pens and paper...she still loves them!
