It’s so important to allow ourselves to wake up to wonder. In the midst of lockdown and restrictions, it’s easy to become jaded. However there is beauty to be found in many of the ordinary moments of our lives and so important not to take that for granted. As Albert Einstein said, “There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

What’s Been Happening
How are you all doing? What are things like where you are? I hope you are safe and well, and finding some joy in every day.
We are still very much in lockdown here in the UK, and I admit there are days I struggle with it. Not being able to see our son and his partner makes me deeply sad. If we lived closer, I’d be able to go for a walk with my son or his partner outside. We are allowed to walk once a day socially distanced with one other person from outside our household. Unfortunately, they live 120 miles away and we are not allowed to travel outside our local area. However I endeavour to remember to wake up to wonder, focus on the positive and look forward to a hopeful reduction in the restrictions in the spring. Either that or we need to move!! 😂
I’m so grateful to my husband for making our Valentine’s Day so lovely It gave me a real lift!
It will be easy to wake up to wonder on Tuesday as it is Pancake Day here in the UK, and I hear it is International Pancake Day as well. I’m especially excited as I have a new flavoured pancake recipe to share with you!
Who would have known that a healthy ingredient was the key to being able to make pancakes in just about every flavour imaginable? Whatever flavour you choose, this easy, versatile recipe is sure to transform your pancake experience.
