Being grateful - time to rest and be creative

I have been unwell again this week. Just when I thought I was over tonsillitis I caught another infection! I'm sure its from taking antibiotics. I'm on to my 2nd lot so hope I feel better by Saturday. We have a friend's wedding to go to this Saturday and have Hubby's family coming down for the weekend to look after the girls. I'm really looking forward to wearing my new dress and heels I've bought especially for the wedding. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I'm better by then.

Its been a quiet week on the blog, so today I thought I'd share with you what I am grateful for:

~ having happy girls who didn't get clingy or cry when I dropped them off to "school";
~ time to myself to rest
~ having fun with Cherub and not worrying about the housework,
~ a thoughtful Husband who started work a little later one morning so he could help me get the
   girls ready for school,
~ my morning coffee (even though my body probably didn't need it, I needed it!)
~ the leg cuddles and giggles I get from my little girl,
~ some time to myself allowing me to be creative.

What are you grateful for?

If you didn't see last week's post it was on "5 ways to show children gratitude" along with a printable you can download here.


  1. Love the gratitude. Gratitude has been on my mind so much of late! I hope you can get some more rest in, feel much better and have the most wonderful time at the wedding xxxx
