Took my 3.5 year old DD to the Adelaide Christmas Pageant today - smiles all round.
My friend rang me just now to apologise for double booking (her DP's fault ) and she couldn't come to my party tonight. No problem, I said, party is next week! So, she checked her calendar, texted her DP on the spot and yah, they are coming!

My 4 yo DS giving me cuddles and kisses and telling me I'm a good girl lol always makes me smile

DS is in grade 4, the oldest group in the junior school. So they take the lead parts in the christmas play.
They have a piece to learn and do in the audition. He is working so hard on it. Every hour he reads through it four or five teams, he is now at the stage that he knows most of it off by heart. He is saying it with so much expression and feeling. it is gorgeous. I do hope he gets a part.

The ladies in the op shop who, on seeing the clown costume pattern I had unearthed, launched into tales of how, at the end of each school year, their primary school had a fancy dress ball that all of the parents and children got into the spirit of. They loved to yarn - and I am the girl to listen to a yarn.
My big girl getting her hair cut (to her instructions) and the amazing end result!
My little girl taking me on a tour of the library to see all of the wonders that she found.
The beautiful rain that has just arrived.
My husband finding the pickled cucumbers in the fridge and offering me some for my sandwich.
Looking for a title in the library computer to see it say "on loan until 30 November" but going to the shelves anyway to see if there was anything like - and to find half a shelf PLUS the book in question waiting for me.
Driving past my old work and thinking how I don't have to go in there again!
Reading my sister's blog about her adventures and the rain.

Getting my DD's birthday presents together and the thought of her face when i give them to her!
Posted 10 November 2012 - 04:08 PM
Being thanked for helping my cousin (first time mum) feel more confident in herself about being a mum. I only went to visit and congratulate her on the birth of her new bubby (3 weeks old). But got a message today of my aunt saying thank you for helping her.
Feeling pretty good about myself today. It was something I really needed as I'd been feeling down and was being very hard on myself.

Cheeky texts with DP. I'm home alone for the weekend.

Watching ds & dh play together. Especially when ds was sitting on the ground and he patted the ground beside him to ask dh to sit beside him. Once dh sat down, ds put his arm around dh's back and leaned into him. So sweet.

Random phones from my two daughters who are away for the weekend with my sisters. Happy calls full of fun and news.
Posted 10 November 2012 - 05:53 PM
Tecnically, it wasn't today, but last night. I got changed out of jeans and into a dress to go out for dinner and DS said, "Oh mummy, you look so pretty" .
He is also convinced that I am the Estee Lauder girl, as whenever he sees a particular picture, he will say, "It's you, mummy".
It's this picture, he is such a sweetheart.
