Sometimes all you can do is focus on the little things.

It's been an extraordinarily difficult week and I had to cancel Melbourne for a second time. I miss Lightscape completely so other than extra dollars on the airfares and now the 2 x Lightscape tickets I had to give away, everything else was moveable - some out of kindness rather than policy.

So I am grateful for the kindness of strangers. I am grateful that I still get to go. I am grateful I could make some other people happy by giving them a chance to see the installation.

I was also very grateful that I got to go for my walk with a friend (as I'd told her I'd be in Melbourne) so I'm really lucky she was available to switch plans last minute, as it really buoyed my mood.

A few more difficult and stressful things to attend to tomorrow but I am hoping by Friday I can relax and enjoy the weekend.

The One Small Thing that made me smile this week was my box of Goodies from the Moomin store. Even though I knew what was inside, the box made me smile when it turned up. 
I now have a Little My eco bag that folds up so tiny it fits comfortably in my pocket. That makes me smile every time I get it out and use it. So as I've said before, when the big things are too much, just focus on the little things.

What's the one small thing that made you happy this week?

  1. A small thing this week was a walk through the castle park of Castle Amras near Innsbruck/Tyrol - made me happy

    1. Should have read the comment first! Ha! Ignore my comment on yours. I thought maybe you wanted it on tomorrow's #Allseasons. I'm a clown! And yes, I bet it did. It's a gorgeous setting!!

  2. I know it's the little things, but I got stuck on those boats. You know how I love boating.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ♥

    1. Ah yes, the Super yacht marina! Those are the not so little things! ;)

  3. I am sure you’ll get much joy from the Moomin bag! Small things are the best. I have been happy spending some quality time with my husband. We love to watch tennis and athletics together and we even laugh a lot! After 30 years.

  4. I put in a pot a plant taken from the mountain. So now, I wait to see what I've succeeded.
    I love small things and their energy. They really makes me happy and more inventive. Lovely photos here. And I hope your weekend will be a fine one!
    Happy WW!

  5. I appreciate the small moments and since the pandemic have been writing them down as it helps… I hope you have more huge moments to enjoy…

  6. I think somehow I have stumbled onto focusing on the little things when the big things overwhelm. It's wonderful advice. Sometimes it takes a long time to "get it," like it did me.
