BITS + PIECES: Stills- a weekly collection

I expect to pass through life but once.
If, therefore, there be any kindness l can show, or any good thing l can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, for I shall not pass this way again.

It's a life lesson I've brought into my daily life. Through giving, acting with  compassion, and recognising the beauty in being present. We watched 'About time', a film that widened my heart to the everyday and honour the little things. The joy of a smile, the warmth of a morning cuddle, the compassion of a friend, the joy in having a cup of tea warm my hands, the importance of friendship. The love that fills your heart while doing an act of kindness, or the abundance that comes from the yogic breathe and the eb and flow of movement with each asana. Ads had his tonsils out this week and recovery has been hard for him. I'm sole parenting at the moment and it's been a challenge at times. I'm keeping things simple, focusing on the breath and focusing on kindness to others, my tribe and myself. I'm enjoying a glass of wine after a good long yoga stretch before dinner, it really is the simple things that help.

Our week in photos-
1. Practising acts of kindness it makes you realise that there is always someone in more need than you. 
2-5. Last days at the beach enjoying sunshine and the freedom of a sandy beach.
6. Our intentional learning has been about narrative stories with schleich animals and felt and learning in the kitchen. We have been making slowcooked chicken broth {thanks glen for the recipe}, bliss balls {recipe here}, and pumpkin and carrot risotto for a family in need.
7. A rainbow of balloons for ads while in hospital.
8. Noticing the changes in the season, starting to look at recipes for the cooler nights and plans to overhaul the garden this week.
9. First babychino. 
10-12. Felt floor play.
13-16. Starting our daily yoga practise.
