I had a wonderful weekend just gone, and it was full of big and little joys.
Have you ever been back to a childhood haunt and found it to be so much smaller than you thought it was? It was my primary schools 150th Anniversary celebrations this Saturday and my SIL and I wandered down (we were just down the road). This must have been how Gulliver felt amongst the lilliputians - Gigantic. Teeny tiny rooms and desks, and the loo's too (no trace of tracing paper loo roll these days we checked!). Teachers who we thought were old when they taught us were there and gasp - still alive (in all honesty some of them have only just retired!) It was wonderful to visit and see some old faces.
We also had my Nephews christening - which I shall hasten onto next - at the church I attended all through my childhood until about 14. Again it felt much smaller - but large in grandeur, high churchiness and incense. Quite a serious service by modern standards, but the vicar was light and joking and just right.
My Nephews christening, Mr B and I as Godparents! Such a small thing, but how big an honour, how huge is my love for our dearest little boy, our godson! Such a tiny bundle of enormous joy. Already his wish is our command and only 9 months old...
And from the sublime to the ridiculous - flowers on my Tomatoes at last.
Happiness can be found in many places but don't over look the big or the little things!
