Saw this idea on the wonderful Sft's blog ...... what a super idea.

Linking up with

Just think of 10 things that are making you happy this month, write them down and grab the banner above for your post! Lets forget about the negatives for a minute, turn off the news and give some attention to all the good things in our lives!

So, here are my 10 things that are making me happy this month....

1. This beautiful cherry blossom in my garden that I sit and watch from our lounge.

2. Learning to crochet.

3. Booking my ticket (today) to go and see my fabulous friend Ruth who emigrated to Canada around 11 years ago. I miss her so much and I CAN'T WAIT! I go in June.

4. A wonderful young man that I am privileged to teach who arrived from the Congo and has endured more than most of us can imagine. Knowing that he is safe and happy makes me so glad.

5. A new job to provide for us.

6. A new book on the way from Amazon.
If you haven't discovered Kelle Hampton's blog yet - go have a look - it will warm your heart

7. Listening to Pink Martini.

8. Easter eggs.

9. #3 being home from Uni for a couple of weeks.

10.Lazy days during the Easter holidays and not having to rush to school every day.

So, go on, join the fun.....

What is making you happy right now?

Love Mrs Thrifty

  7. Your list is brilliant. I joined the revolution too, but learning to crochet is making me frustrated at the moment, not happy. Will check out the book recommendation. ;-)Arwedd x
