Things I Know

Joining in with the Yay for Home! meme again, here are some Things I Know this week.

- Starting and ending the week with slow morning ambles home from school drop-off, and park play, is great for both my toddler and I. No-car Mondays and Fridays FTW!

- Smartphones are very awesome, but the ability to tweet and email on the road is a mixed blessing.

- When the school calls to say your almost-8-year-old is in sick bay looking white as a sheet and complaining of a headache and nausea, it's probably best to ask them to ascertain what she was doing immediately before said incident, before you panic and race to the school in a tizzy. (Answer: She was playing a spinning-around game with her friends. She suffers quite badly from both vertigo and motion sickness. Case closed ;-)

- Sun in the winter time lifts your heart out of all proportion.

- A cop of tea, a fresh pear, a new novel by a favourite author, a warm blankie, a clean house, and a napping toddler = A precious and savoured hour of indulgence of my very favourite kind.

For more things that people know, check out the main page at Shae's here.


  1. Your last point made me heart sing!
    Love Mrs Woog xx

  2. There's been a lot of beautiful sunshine where we are too. So grateful for it.
    Happy Friday !

  3. I loved the last things too - though not the napping kids because it means a late night now.

    I love winter sun.

  4. Ahh winter sun-my favorite :)
