Time to Play in the Rainforest and cheer us up apple pie

Being very busy work wise right now, Dave had the perfect surprise for me the other night. After fighting my way through the storm and rain, getting soaked and feeling pretty cold, I found he transformed our bedroom into a chirping warm jungle.
It felt like being back on holiday in Cairns, when I closed my eyes.
And it brought back memories, of when we started to go out, and built blanket forts in our room. I can't wait to book a little getaway soon. I am so ready for some sunshine and play time.

This constant cold rain for the last weeks, really taught me a lesson in how to keep smiling-
Here are my recipes, just in case you are ever facing a similar weather challenge :

#1 Building a blanket fort, making indoors as comfortable as possible.
#2 Getting delicious spicy teas.
#3 Baking and eating an apple pie. (Saved my day today! Find my recipe here!)
#4 Remembering to include play time, even in busy weeks.
#5 Thinking about this uplifting little quote which feels so encouraging;
     “You is kind. You is smart. You is important.”  From the movie The Help
#6 Planning a holiday
#7 Staying in Pyjamas all day on your day off, doing #1-#7
#8 Doing Yoga
#9 Singing fun songs out LOUD
#10 Sleeping with two hot water bottles and playing rainforest sounds

If there is sunshine where you are, please send some our way!
