As the old adage goes, when life gives you lemons… make lemonade!
My readers will know that this week has left us reeling, as our home buying process was suddenly, and guttingly, ripped apart by our buyer. Life, it feels, has not only given us lemons. It has taken those lemons and squeezed them into our eyes. We came into the weekend feeling hurt and wounded.
Thankfully, though, we have good friends and family. And the weather is amazing, which always helps. We spent a good morning with a friend, tidying and cleaning the house. My husband worked hard weeding, pruning and cutting in the garden. All whilst our friend’s wife looked after our little girl.
After enjoying (maybe not the right word – I hate cleaning) our morning, we went to our friends’ house and devoured an amazing homemade lasagne. The rest of the afternoon was then spent playing in the garden, with the paddling pool, not to mention a small water fight and many independent steps from our daughter.
Last week life gave us lemons. So, we made lemonade. Fun, friend-filled, first steps and laughter flavoured lemonade.
