I could start to tell you about how busy and chaotic life is at the moment. I could also mention the stacks of washing waiting to be sorted through, the disorder in our bedrooms and the ironing piles taunting me from the corner of the room. I could even grumble about this gloomy Irish summer and my lack of a holiday this year. But I won't. Instead I'll show you two snaps from the last week that make me smile everytime I look at them: beautiful garden roses grown a half hour from my house and an infectiously happy moment with my beautiful boy.
