It doesn't take much nowadays to make me happy - seeing that lovely 5.5 blood glucose reading at 11 o'clock at night, watching my children confidently heading off for a day at school, that first sip of my mid morning coffee and that satisfaction at finishing another felt creation.
Today I felt as though I had hit the jackpot! There is no doubt that winter is fast approaching here in Finland. The winter tyres are on and the car heaters plugged in. It also means winter jackets and trousers and the dreaded winter boots. Growing children mean rapidly growing feet so with fera and trepidation I made the children try on last years winter boots - 2 sets, one set for cold, wet snow and one set for very cold dry snow. They all fit! That is 200 euros we have saved - now that makes me so happy!
