A couple of incredibly thoughtful and lovely things happened yesterday – turning an ordinary day into a really lovely one.
Pregnancy doesn’t become me. I really wish it did. I would love to be a glowing, gorgeous, baby carrying goddess – but instead I’m more like a waddly wombat, except nowhere near as cute. Lower back issues make it hurt to walk, our strong and healthy little bubba is gobbling up all of Mumma’s iron leaving me with an empty tank, and a number of not so other fun issues mean that I feel a little less than fabulous.
Roses from my Nana’s garden
My grandparents popped round to say hello, and my beautiful Nana brought me fresh strawberries and mandarins. Just little things, but she always goes out of her way to do something thoughtful, whether it’s bringing me roses from her garden, one of her freshly baked carrot cakes (my favourite!) or a home made lasagne. She’s one of the most thoughtful people I know, along with my mum – and I can only hope to be half as thoughtful as they both are.
Then the post arrived, and with it one of the most beautiful cards I’ve ever received. It was totally unexpected and within it were words I really needed to hear. What beautiful timing.

In the afternoon my neighbours invited Ava for a play date while I did a quick grocery run. When I returned to collect her – she was having such a lovely time that we were invited to stay for home made cake and hot tea. Ava was later sent home with freshly made pasta for her dinner. I told my hubby that our neighbours are like another set of grandparents for Ava, what a lucky little girl she is.
And what a lucky girl I am, to have so many wonderfully thoughtful people in my life. I’m nowhere near as thoughtful as I could be, but I’m going to try to be more thoughtful because I know what a huge difference it can make.
