A new blog for 2016

After three years of smiles it's time for a bit of a change. I'll still be smiling (I hope!) but in 2016 my blog will be entitled

Today I am grateful for...

You can find it here. Here's the first post...

 After three years of Smiles (2013-2015) with TipTopSwiss  , Windows on my world  and Trees in 2012, 2011 and 2010 respectively, this will be my 7th post-a-day blog challenge.
This year my focus will be on 'things' for which I am grateful, inspired by Piglet,

and this quotation from Flickr.

Gratitude changes the way we look at the world

I'm sure many will be things that make me smile too ;)
So here goes with (at least) 366 reasons I am grateful...

From the Highlands of Scotland where a run affords you views like this, the Stevens family wish you all lots of smiles in 2016. And tomorrow I'll reveal my new blog for 2016. Watch this space!

Floods and howling wind didn't stop us and we made it to the Highlands. Our cottage is lovely and the toiletries smell gorgeous. Highland soaps are going to be getting some custom...
Liked the huge horses heads on the drive from Edinburgh. 
And you've got to love a toilet that doubles as a library!

Happy birthday Isaac! 
We've arrived in Scotland. Looking forward to eating this!!

Love the many faces of Jude - so many that they wouldn't fit on one collage!

A family present giving pile up (minus the one watching the CBeebies pantomime for the fourth time this afternoon)

Running in the park this afternoon. Starting to lose the 'hard work' feeling that you get when you've been ill and enjoyed it, even running up the hill from Boldmere to the ice cream van and the very steep stretch up to the Bistro. 
In other news, Jude played trumpet at church and was brilliant. Also at church,  Donald skilfully rolled worry pebbles to by our feet whilst we were singing/playing and amused Jude by rolling it straight into the spit puddle from his trumpet; appropriate I think!
