Smiley Saturday

Smiley Saturday ... I have had a bit of a hiatus too from SS not because I haven't anything to smile about but not enough TIME.
We have spent every 2nd weekend (2/3 or 4 days) of two months at my fatherinlaw's Farm about 4 hrs from home.
We are here again this weekend and I am testing mobile broadband.
Mobile reception is patchy - it works at the kitchen window sill and up at the cattle yards...where update : I am blogging right now ... though immensely difficult in the bright sun.

So I will be smiling if I get this posted today !

I am also smiling because
* The weather is amazing. There has been rain and the paddocks on the farm are looking lush.
* I have been doing my 10,000 steps a day and only missed a few days because of rain (at home) and because my twin pram was in my husbands car.
* I discovered if I remove all 4 quick release wheels from my beast of a twin runabout stroller it fits in the boot my new car.I was this close to selling it and buying a new smaller model. The wheels can be removed in two mins and put back in same time. I am very happy about this because the pram a) cost a small fortune and it hasn't had enough use B) the weight of each child can be up to 25kg - most other prams it is only 17kgs.It goes across all terrain even rugged farm lanes with ease. I love it.
* Last week on 15th October was 20th anniversary of meeting my DH. We had a quiet night at home because we had no babysitter and it was also Pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day... I wanted to light my candles.We will make it up soon. We won a $150 dinner for two in a private dinning room that we will use in next few weeks. (well in expires in 2 months)
* In last week I have discovered some new blogs and new friends I look forward to getting to know more.
* Lani from Me and Boo gave me this award ...
*I am giving it to everyone who comments today

* I found a most mmmm delicious *caramel banana muffin recipe ...quick and easy too - 7 ingedients into a bowl mix, spoon into muffin cases,add a scoop of tinned caramel filling swirl and cook and try not to eat them all at once but the recipe is at home so come back Monday
* Things are going smoothly at home with DH and the teen is slightly more co-operative.
* I have been blessed with some great friends and I am so grateful.
* The Love meter is almost full and I plan on feeding it every day.
* Life is good ~ for the most part money though is still tight we have so many blessings and not too affected by the credit crisis (except by our compulsory superannuation that we have no control over) gripping the globe.
