🍋 snoozy Sunday 🍋
One too many wobbly pops last night so today is a sofa, tea, leftover cake and snuggle with Theo kinda day. I’m also binge watching Eastenders on @britbox_us haven’t seen this show in years! What are your guilty Sunday’s about?
This little patch of green in the middle of the street by my house always catches my eye.
It is a little hint of color on an otherwise drab slab of concrete.
It is a wonder to me that it grows there, in a shallow divet where concrete has been hollowed out by years of wear and tear.
This little clump of color reminds me often of the courageous people I see whose lives grow vibrantly in spite of their surroundings. In spite of their unideal conditions for growth. In spite of poor [or a lack of any] soil. In the absence of anyone to provide loving maintenance.
Somehow people amazingly keep going and keep growing and I marvel at their lives in the way I marvel at this little cluster of green.
Grateful today [and every day] to bear witness to story, to courage, and to such deep wells of resilience. People are amazing and beautiful. 🌿
24/365 - C O C K T A I L S 🍹
Always good to celebrate the weekend with a few bevvies.
A couple of Friday’s ago I sampled the new offerings at @walrusmcr and was so pleasantly surprised by their cocktails ♥️🙌🏼 love me their “Manchester Bramble” (pictured to the right), if you like pizza, and sweet cocktails in the sunshine ☀️ Walrus #NorthernQuarter is most definitely the place to hit up this summer.
What’ve you all gotten up to this weekend? Let me know in the comments below👇🏼
23/365 - “Just pose for a sec babe whilst I take an ‘impromptu’ photo of us here at @blackmilkcereal...” 😝
Said I When forcing Jon to take this cute pic of us whilst enjoying our first EVER trip to Black Milk #NorthernQuarter .
Jon was not a happy bunny, and I promised him I wouldn’t share on social media... just a good job he’s not on Instagram, isn’t it?
Today’s adventure: I pray she will always find beauty in the small things. She actually got excited when she saw all these flowers and needed to smell them all. .
On a side note, I’m so grateful to everyone who has hung with us this week or who have sent messages to see how I’m doing, who has invited us to something to join them in (even if we haven’t joined them), who have cooked us a meal, who have blessed us in some way! I have such a great support network of friends and family and I am so grateful for each and everyone of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you! #thankyou#grateful#blessed#smallthings#friends#family#feelingthelove#thankful
