It's Sunday. And the living is definitely easy.
With regard to this blog, Sundays mean only one thing right now - Leanne's Lovin' Life Linky. Which has a pretty self explanatory title and is a joy to write about on Sundays like today.
We were at the park this morning with old friends from mothers' group. That's the first love of today right there. Sitting barefoot on the Astro turf enjoying the breeze and coolness in the shade as we chatted away while the boys played.
The bond they have is a joy to see in action. They have a friendship that just picks up from where it left off the last time they met. They currently love copying each other's actions, emotions and moves on the play equipment.

I had lunch with a close girl friend this week. And we had one of those conversations that define a genuine and treasured friendship. We talked about everything. Things that needed to be gotten off chests, things that suddenly became easier to talk about owing to the healing power of time and whether the person at the table next of us really was who we thought it was... It wasn't just the freedom to talk that made our lunch so special to me - it was also the ability for us to be both able to reflect on how life (ourselves included) had changed over the years that we've known each other. The perspective we've gained, the maturity and the inner strength that comes from the hardcore
workouts our personal trainer called life seems to have thrown at us as we've both approached and now hit the big four-oh.
I'm loving sneaky frozen pizzas for dinner on Saturday nights.
Especially when they've been given a little bit of TLC in the shape of basil from my herb garden, Golden Circle pineapple pieces in juice, tomato and a bit of leftover ham.
