so grateful this weekend for some time at Mum & Dad's place.  It's such a beautiful piece of this earth, I good long walk over the hills & down the gully is always like food for the soul.  A trip down memory lane every time & the chance to share it with our boys & to see how much they love it is so precious.

I often wish my parents would sell up & move down closer to us, but then I go home & I realise that if they did, we wouldn't have this, and I can't imagine life without this land, a whole other world for our boys to explore & enjoy...
heaven on earth...

head over to Maxabella's for loads more grateful posts...
