2014.20 reality

I deliberately keep these posts upbeat, most weeks have marvellous moments competing with the occasional lows, and I like to focus on the goodness.  This week has been no different in it’s mix of joys and frustrations, however with a little added drama!

DSC_1056-1I made this ‘jar of generosity’ as part of the 40 Acts challenge I took part in for Lent.  It soon took on a new role as keeper of receipts and loose change.  When we came home on Friday we found that someone had been in our house and helped themselves to the coins, and also some Rum & Raisin chocolate from the fridge.  Involuntary generosity?  So on Saturday it was time for additional security (check out the brand names!)…
