The weather here has been miserable which has been having a big impact on what we can do on weekends. I am hanging to get out into the garden or out and about for walks or garden centre window shopping but the weather is putting a stop to that. This is having an obvious impact on how we feel, flat and a little bored.
My six year old daughter though sees the excitement in so many things and reminded me just to focus on this the way she does. Every Monday she has to write at school what she did on the weekend and she started listing all the things she can write about for the coming Monday. She is so excited about the fact we had dinner at a friends last night, she went swimming today and built Lego towers and made cards with her brother that she then turned to me and said 'Mummy can we save Possum hunting (don't worry she means looking for possums at night with torches, something we did the other week) for next weekend as I have too many things already to say for what I did on the weekend' and it is only Saturday!

And here I was thinking we hadn't done anything. I will take a leaf out of her book and look at the nice things we have shared as a family instead.
