THIS SATURDAY I'M HAPPY FOR... HAPPY AIRPORT REUNIONS.


We've been visiting family this week, and apart from an exciting plane trip, there's so much to be grateful for...
  1. Happy airport reunions. There's nothing more gorgeous than seeing the big wide grins of two little boys who are super excited to see their Adelaide grandparents again. (Oh, and big wides smiles of the grandparents' too.)
  2. Movie nights with siblings. Because I never get time off at home, it was a delight to go and see Red Riding Hood with my step-sister Karen. And because her husband is a cop who does shift work, she hardly ever gets a chance to have a night off either. Double treat!
  3. Sleep ins. With a mother who is happy to get the kids out of bed, dressed and fed means something wonderful for me the last few mornings. Thanks Mum!
What are you grateful for this week? Happy Grateful Day.

  10. I always feel like going to my mum's is like going to resort, for all those reasons. We're never too old to just check into home.

  12. Oh happy times with your family!! So jealous of involved grandparents, mine aren't interested, in an elderly way. Oh a movie with your sister, how wonderful. Not sure i could do a scary movie, certainly not with my sister, she's a bigger scardy cat than me. Love Posie

  13. Your wee boy looks so cute - love his little jacket! Very jealous of your resort like week - oh to have a family to help out - our kids don't have any hands on grandparents apart from my grandparents who are in their 80's. I also love airports - we flew to South Africa at Christmas with the kids and the look on my husbands family and friends faces (he'd not been back in 8 years) was priceless!

  22. Airport reunions are resonating with me - soon we'll be creating a few of our own as we leave to live in Geneva.

    In fact even though I get all teary thinking about it, it's pretty incredibly brilliant to realise how lucky I am to have so many people to miss!
