  1. Beautiful list! That jam looks gorgeous, and the photo of the walnut is so cool. I know what you mean about mess – it gets to me sometimes, but I try and concentrate on all the positives it represents! x #thetruthabout

    1. Thanks Jess. I love it when the walnuts crack so well that they are heart-shaped.
      Concentrating on the positive is the only thing to do sometimes, isn’t it?
      Thanks for popping over.

  2. Your life does sound entirely idyllic Fionnuala! I love the fact you your walnuts are heart-shaped. Making a positive list like this is something which I think really helps enhance your happiness of all the lovely things in life – I must do one myself soon! Thanks so much for linking up to this week’s #thetruthabout X
