There have been some wonderful moments shared with family this last week. In between the routine of work and chores we have had some lovely times.
The Husband and I went for dinner and a gig with my parents on Monday. It was great to meet them all from work. What really stuck in my mind was the waiter asking what we were celebrating as we clinked glasses and said cheers. We weren't celebrating anything in particular, just the joy of sharing the evening together. The gig was fabulous and it felt like a brilliant start to the week.
On Tuesday I was working from home and something went wrong with the study door. Millie and I were stuck in the room as the handle had stopped working. I called mum who promptly dispatched Mal who turned up a moment later, opened the door with ease, walked in and shut it behind him to see what the problem was. Suffice to say mum then had to come down to let us both out. It was a perfect comedy moment, and Mal immediately redeemed himself by fixing the door before I'd even had time to put the kettle on.
Yesterday would have been my grandparents diamond wedding anniversary and so my lovely mum did a special dinner for my grandad and us to mark the occasion. It was a perfect way to commemorate such a significant date. It has been a week filled with family, and that is my favourite kind of week.
