Simple Pleasures

Simple everyday things that have made me happy this week:

A beautiful hand painted card from Markie for Mother's Day

School got cancelled on the Friday so she wasn't able to bring
this home til Monday. It doesn't matter at all that I got it a day later.
I think it's wonderful! 

French toast and bacon for breakfast

We have these every Saturday. It's yummy and filling, our all time
favourite way to start a weekend.

Repurposing these set of face cloths

They're nicely soft and thick, and cheap too. I've added ribbon
hanging loops and they're now our new kitchen hand towels.

Meatballs made by my husband with help from the girls

We had them for dinner last Wednesday but there are still enough left
for another meal and sandwiches for lunch. Can't wait!

Lulu's lovely way of arranging her toys

There's always some sort of pattern and order in the way she places
her toys next to each other. She says she's "putting them in right
order". I wonder what she'll be when she grows up.

A bunch of daffodils

Whether in buds or in bloom, they're one of the best things about spring.

Washi tapes from Wilko

I love their spring colours and they're brilliant at prettying up
 jam jars and just about any old thing.

Simple things, simple pleasures.

Hope you've all enjoyed the lovely sunshine today.
Thanks for stopping by here. Have a nice week!


  1. I hadn't been able to comment on your Lenten square (I was on my phone, don't have my google acct connected with my google email, etc, etc - why do they insist on complicating such a simple thing, lol?), when I first read that post. I had been thinking of it lately, wondering what it would be this year - your tree is just gorgeous!! French toast is so yummy, Emma loves it for our birthday breakfast every year. Scott, my 22 year old, use to arrange things in 'the right order", too! We always thought he'd be an engineer, but he's a cook! Looks like you've been having a lovely week!

  2. The card from Markie is so cute. I can't believe the number of meatballs you have made. And I love the story how Lulu likes everything in order - I bet she has a nice tidy house when she grows up, and maybe a mathematician who likes logic!
    Have a good week

  3. Markie's card is lovely isn't it? Lulu's organising is great, I could do with some of that here! Meatballs are a favourite in our house too. Wishing you a happy week, Marion xx

  4. Lovely things Marion! Such a sweet card from your wee girl...definately one to treasure. I love Wilko for pretty crafty things too.
