Smiles in a parcel :)

The postman brought gifts to our house today and he also dleivered very big smiles and happiness too :). Thank you so very much to Gina and her lovely family, you truly sent a parcel of joy. Charlie loves the books and of course like all new books they must be read lots and lots of times each day :)

This is the boy.....

This is the boy who taught me to love unconditionally.
This is the boy who taught me how strong I really am.
This is the boy who taught me to never give up trying.
This is the boy who taught me love is everything.

This boy is my son Jake who is 18 years old and has had the courage and strength to be admitted on a psychiatric unit to try and get better from the awful mental illness that has plagued him for so long. Please think of my boy if you possibly could and send healing vibes.

Feeling blessed :)

On a wet, cold day something popped through my letterbox that makes me feel truly blessed to be a member of the inspirational and encouraging family that is The Mother. I cant wait to savour every page and welcome the calm mama that comes out in me.
A very big smile was brought to our faces when we realised that our family is in this issue :)

Days like this...

We've stayed in our pyjamas, played and kind of hibernated a little.
Making car ramps from tree blocks.

We have played....lots.

To remind me of where I want to be, calm, peaceful and respectful of my gift of being a parent when the hustle and bustle of our house gets to much.

Oh, think I mentioned before.....I love stripes!!

Charlie really loves his 'late' stocking filler of a little wooden boat from Myriad. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed with myriad as I order from them lots and my Christmas order which I made at the beginning of December only arrived a couple of days ago. Oh well I suppose it was worth the wait, and charlie can decorate the wooden tree ornaments next Christmas lol.

After endless days of mainly being indoors ,only going out for brief walks or a little sledging, a wonderful parcel arrived today.....a lovely treat for a tired mama. A Nomads skirt (in the sale!), a fairtrade sandal + cedar candle and a wonderful book I cant wait to read, The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran.

We had a peaceful, quiet christmas at our house with lots of lovely delicious food, wonderful presents and just spending time together. Although we had no idea that charlie would be so ill at the moment. He did seem a little under the weather during christmas but we put it down to a tummy bug or a cold but unfortunately he is quite poorly with flu (he has been diagnosed with the swine flu, but to be honest we're just giving him lots of rest, hugs and juice). I want to wish you all a wondeful and very peaceful happy new year.

A lovely wintery walk.

Mr mischief :)

New Year Blessings to everyone.
