My Happy List

There has been a lot of chat about the current floods and how they are affecting people which is somewhat sobering in this holiday season so when I saw Kate had done a list of Happy Things to focus on I thought I would have a go too.


A husband I love and two blue eyed children who smile and keep me on my toes.  Parents I can call and other family popping in to read my blog and cheer me on from the sidelines.  Thank you!  You can leave comments you know, just click the 'annonymous' user option.

Our block of land.  At the moment it is acres of thistles and an old house but we are turning it into our home.  It is hard work but I feel happy here and love the local community we have found ourselves a part of.

Friends.  Thank you for your friendship, support and blog comments over the past year.  Keep it up next year too please ;) 

Knitting and Sewing.  I love the quiet time, the fact that I am creating something useful and nice for our use in and around the home. And the dancing Possum does when she gets to wear something new always makes me smile.

Thankfully, while our creek does flood, it does not cut our access or affect our arable land.  We are lucky and our thoughts are with those who have an uneasy eye still cast on the weather reports.  Spare a thought for the flooded houses, the ruined crops, the stock and the workers on enforced downtime.

edit:  Kate has started a meme to spread the happiness.  Check it out here and join in!
