More often than not, the things which make me smile come from what my children say....
I wish sometimes we could capture those one liners, but the words come out so quickly and before you know it they've moved onto the next thing.
An example of this happened the other day. I tried reversing out of a parking space and couldn't as car after car drove past. I said 'Every man and his dog is driving past' Jack looked round frantically and said 'Where's every man and his dog, and who is he anyway?' It did make me chuckle inwardly.......I guess you had to be there - hubby didn't find it that funny!
Moving onto other things which make me smile - I always look forward to getting out my 'seasonal bits' as each season gets underway. Autumn brings out a whole host of my decorative bits and bobs.
My favourite has to be Mr Smoky - German in origin (I think) these great wooden men puff away frantically in our house from now until January. I'm sure some of you are familiar with them - you can buy cones in various fragrances - strike a match to get them burning, put them inside Mr Smoky and away you go. The smell is great and really represents Autumn.
Finally, it has to be a piece of homemade gingerbread with apple. Yummy!
