Happiness is …

… receiving a thoughtful gift that you absolutely love! We had a pre-Christmas family dinner get together with MrMM’s side of the family last night.  I absolutely love the gift received from my brother and sister-in-law.

Christmas Tree and Gifts

Crazy times but it’s all good!

The Christmas season can sometimes get a little crazy!  There are usually lots of parties, too much food, too much alcohol, lots of shopping for gifts (shopping centres and parking wars!), money stress (all that spending!), what to wear to each event (not to mention Christmas day), cooking […]

Christmas words


Can you believe it is December and therefore not long till Christmas?  That crept up fast didn’t it?! I’ve been so busy with my twin’s 21st (amongst other things) that December arrived before I knew it!  I am not prepared at all for Christmas yet.  Thank goodness we […]

365 Grateful – Day 90

I haven’t felt well today, so spent most of the day lying down and resting.   It wasn’t until tonight that I began to wonder what I would use as my grateful photo for today.  It is dark outside so I needed to focus on things around me in […]

I am grateful for a thoroughly enjoyable Christmas catch-up dinner out with good friends J & V. Last night MrMM and I went out to dinner with some good friends who we have known since before we were married.  The conversation always flows easily and it is always […]

365 Grateful – Day 84

365 Grateful – Day 83

Today MrMM and I attended a Christmas party at my mother-in-law’s nursing home.  It was morning tea and nibblies followed by a buffet lunch.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  They threw a great party! There were talented singers singing carols, children singing and playing the violin, a lady playing […]
