We had a sunny day here today - hurrah!!!
The rain has briefly stopped.
Part of my Tea Room flooded!
So I managed to get down to the allotment for some much needed weeding. The little plot has been doing us proud at the moment. We are eating our own potatoes, peas, beans, kale and there are plenty of strawberries. I gain so much pleasure from putting a meal on the table the consists of mainly our own produce. Simple pleasures.
I haven't managed to work out how to get the photos off my phone, so here is a picture of last year pickings.
Another thing which is making me happy, is that we have made our first repayment on our mortgage. It is only a little step, but it feels good to have made that first step.
I have been reading Rhonda's Down to Earth blog and this post really hit a chord. She just makes so much sense. I really must be more content with what I have and to appreciate every day - too often I find myself wishing away the time or getting angry at the children (this seems to happen far too often!).
Simple pleasures are the most valuable.
