I had one of those perfect days on Saturday. A day that reminded me of how lucky I am.
The day started with a cricket tournament in which Adam played at the school. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. Blue blue skies, no wind. Not yet too boiling hot. Marko brought Adam early and I came a little later with Max and Kate. My parents came for a while to watch Adam play cricket. I volunteered at the cooldrink stand.
I was reminded how lucky I am to be a parent. To have a healthy child who is able to play sport, at a wonderful school that I am fortunate enough to afford. That I am fortunate enough to have siblings for my children. That my parents are healthy and live close by.
After the cricket my BFF came around to my house to watch the rugby with my husband and drink champagne with me. While my BFF and husband watched the rugby, I sat outside sipping my champagne and laughing at all the children in the pool. The kids had an awesome time, playing pool rugby and jumping in the pool.
It made me realize how lucky I am to live in a beautiful house, in a beautiful estate, in a beautiful city, in a beautiful country. And that I have a home that all the children want to come to. I absolutely LOVE having a house full of children, even if they make me run ragged with all the requests for juice, ice creams and chips.
It made me realize how lucky I am to have a partner who I am quite fond of. To have a best friend who I admire enormously. And not only because she is always willing to drink champagne with me on a lazy, warm Saturday afternoon. And that my husband and my best friend get on so well. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy that my friend and her daughter feel so at home in my home. Which could or could not have something to do with the aforementioned champagne.
Saturday was a perfect day. I was reminded of how incredibly lucky I am to have what I have.
