This plus that equals…. little memories

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about the little every day things that are actually really special and I want to remember.

Recently I’ve been lucky enough to have a couple of child free, work free mornings. So I did all the housework, made phone calls, sorted out the shopping and generally worked until I was exhausted. I think I should have played it differently.
