The Simple Things

Small joys make my world go 'round!

1.  Last week Will took our broken blender back to the store with a) no receipt, b) no original packaging, and c) very little hope for a positive outcome.  He returned with this:

For free.  Brand new.  Plus change.  Have I mentioned he's my hero?  Happy mama.

2.  This mama is officially on maternity leave until 1 April 2014.  I love my job, but must admit that sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day with my bump literally bouncing around on my lap was becoming quite the challenge, ha!  Bring on four months of quality family time.

3.  Watermelon.  Our gazillionth (okay, tenth) one of the season.  (We're that couple who stands around the watermelon bin in the shop for 20 minutes every week knocking and listening intently.)

4.  Sending off a parcel of happiness as part of the 2013 SA Running Sock Swap and waiting in anticipation for a similar parcel to arrive :) .

Do simple things make you happy?  Any small joys to share?   



  1. Four months of maternity leave is awesome! I thought I was getting a lot with 12 weeks! enjoy your time off and the little one when it arrives :) I love staring out at the snow, a cup of hot tea, and shopping from the comfort of my home instead of braving the crazy crowds.

    1. Thanks so much, Christy.

      Love your small joys! :)

  2. Now you have me missing summertime watermelons! Enjoy your rest!

    1. Thanks so much, Tina!

      Watermelons are definitely one of my favourite things about summer. Oh, and mangoes! :)


I love hearing from you!
