I get to cook now

I had never realised Hayden had never helped cook. Sure he loves to lick the spoon from the mixing bowl but that's about it. Honestly he never showed much attention so I responded by not including him. Hmmm how wrong was I.
Anyway when I started cooking he came up to me with the usual remarks and questions why does the ZuZu pet have carpet on it, did you know cheese has a crust? Why?.......I attempt to answer his questions but honestly ZuZu pets and carpet where does he come up with that.
He notices me cooking and I say to him we are having lamb shanks can you get me some rosemary from the garden. He loves to garden and water the plants especially. And comes back with 5 teensy tiny rosemary leaves. Oh dear he didn't even know what I meant. We go outside pick a lovely stalk and I put my rosemary in and Haddy put in his.
All I can say see was beaming from head to toe. I get to cook now mum! This is the first time I get to cook, I'm so excited!
Ahh my sweet little darling. I will be sure to let him not only like the chocolat pudding bowl but also to help more when I cook.

On this cold windy and wet Perth day. I feel winter is making a good impresion. I love feeling the seasons change. Today my sons friend came to visit with his lovely mum. He lives down the road and his family have moved to Australia form Argentina. Long way to travel and so far from friends and family.
In the short amount of time I have know them both I have grown very fond of them. I know very little about South America and from what Andrea tells me life is so different. You imagine beaches and parties, soccer and summer. Not fear, anxiety and corruption. I feel so grateful for our life in Perth every time we catch up. They have fully embraced Aussie life. And live with such possitivity. Connecting with new friends forces us to be more. More friendly and interested in others, we listen and and listened to more and have to be more charming. I love finding out people's back stories and discovering simalarities between mine and theres. We both are very interested in healthy and wholesome living, travel and community and have connected on lifestyle. They have seen more of Perth and WA than I have.

Wow after a week of serious household business. I just can't seem to get the words. So I guessed I should think of a few words that make me.......Happy, Smile, Echo, Love and Beauty.
Hold that thought cos I know there is more to come. In the meantime what can you do to make someone feel Happy?
