I often think of ideas for posts at random times and I have various different ways to record the ideas to make sure I don’t forget them – I always have a notebook in my bag in case I want to go oldstyle (or if the battery’s dead on my phone), I write ideas in the notes section of my phone or if I’m near to my laptop then I save a draft post in my blog with just the title of the post I want to write.
In an ideal world, I’d have time to then go back and actually write all of the posts that are sitting there but it doesn’t always happen! This post is a prime example as I started writing it after a parents night in July when a teacher commented to me that I should be very proud of Miss Frugal.
She then went on to say that a parent’s pride was something that money could never buy which really struck me at the time, more for the fact that the blogger in me was feeling a post coming on about other feelings that money couldn’t buy although the parent in me was pretty pleased about it too! 😉
Anyway, three months after writing the title to this post, I’m finally getting around to thinking of some other feelings that money just can’t buy….
Opening the curtains on a morning to a clear day with no clouds in the sky.
Setting off late for work but still getting there on time as there’s hardly any traffic on the roads.
Seeing the kids’ eyes light up when they spot you in a the audience at their school play.
Opening a new book, knowing I actually have some time to myself to sit down and read it.
Straightening my hair and realising that even the annoying stubborn bit at the front that always goes in the opposite direction to where I want it to go has fallen into place perfectly.
Waking up at six in the morning thinking I only have half an hour left in bed before realising that it’s the weekend.
Opening homemade cards on my Birthday and Mother’s Day that the kids have made off their own back with no prompting or help from me.
Realising that the stain on my favourite top actually has come out.
Seeing that look on the kids’ faces when they’re having fun and even better than that – managing to capture that look of pure joy on camera!
Getting a hug from one of the kids and being told that I’m the best Mam ever.
What’s your favourite feeling that money can’t buy?
