Things I'm Loving 14.9.12

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something you can be thankful for..no matter how simple it is.

After the storm
Loving that just a few hours after the biggest storm we've seen in a long while, Welly was able to dish me up this stunning city scenery on an unscheduled midday Sunday walk.

The LEGO Story
This is a brilliant animation of how LEGO came about. You'll need to boil the kettle and sit down with a cuppa to enjoy it uninterrupted though as it is 17 minutes long.

I just loved how the company stayed true to their values, and have kept LEGO as a family business. How they didn't give up when times were tough, and when they got knocked down, they just got right back up again, even if it meant rebuilding from scratch. A lovely story of how one man's legacy is now loved by millions throughout the world.

Divided Loyalties
When you have a daddy who is passionate about supporting his homeland, it's probably a bit inevitable that you'll grow up supporting two countries...and they're definitely loving their Team GB Olympic gears!

 GF goodness
Loving that Dominos do gluten-free pizzas so I can still be an active participant in family takeaway nights!

Flowers...just cos....
Does there have to be a reason? Last week I got a sunflower from hubby...just cos...and I'm loving it.

He's got talent
This is such a heartwarming story, 34 year-old Christopher Maloney (no relation!) who overcame his extreme nervousness, five years of applying and then ripping up his application because he couldn't go through with it, as well as other people telling him he was wasting his time to audition for X-Factor UK. If you can watch it all the way through without a tear in your eye and a smile on your face, you'll be doing better than me!

Love your loves this week. Our boys have been building up quite a collection of Team GB stuff, they were hooked on the games (we have one of those t shirts and those sweat bands too)

And funnily enough, my boys just discovered that Lego animation a couple of weeks ago!

Lego is a hit in this house too. We also share divided loyalties here- half born in NZ and the other half in Australia. Each half staunchly loyal to their country of birth. Makes life fun and interesting at times. Cx
