Joy Pockets

Walking with my son along the country lanes when the "soft" rain is falling 
and smelling the sweetest air imaginable, 
crisp, clean, grassy earthy scents...........


A lovely message from a sweet friend.


Spending quiet time in a comfy chair, knitting and reading and just doing whatever takes my fancy.


Having girlie time with my lovely daughter and laughing till we cry!
Finding out that I still had €10 on a gift card
I had forgotten about!






Enjoying dinner with family relaxing, laughing and sharing stories together.

Admiring the poppy seed heads that now appear in the garden. 












It may not be sunny here or very hot but it is home and I'm very happy here.

Your pockets of joy are lovely - I would love to wander along a country lane in soft rain...but I like the rain anytime! Relaxing and having dinner with family and friends while sharing stories is one of the loveliest things to do..

What lovely pockets!, I love walking down the country lanes here after its rained , you can really smell all the hedgerow flowers and the earthy smells of moss and wood.. just as well to enjoy it really as I think Cornwall probably gets as much rain as you over in Ireland!! I cant wait until eating dinner becomes a relaxing and enjoyable times...its usually mess and chaos with my two (2 & 4 yrs!!). Thanks for visiting my blog, enjoy your weekend, lisa x
