52 Weeks of Gratitude – Week Seventeen

heart shaped stone

  1. miss Lola coming home today, after five days at guide  camp – can’t wait to see her!
  2. having some ‘lazy’ time at home with my little two girls after a hectic few weeks
  3. impromptu dinner out, after our oven broke
  4. preparing for Kiki’s 8th birthday tomorrow
  5. yummy tomatoes fresh from the garden
  6. picnics with friends {i.e chance for an afternoon chatting!}
  7. finding the peace to just ‘let go’
  8. ticking more things off my to-do list
  9. not back to school stationary shopping – thankfully my girlies all love stationary as much as I do!
  10. hot chocolate and a good book

another week of giving thanks – I’m loving this project as it really makes me think and stop and appreciate how lucky I am.

    Super sweet heart shaped pebble. I can’t wait for my kids to start going away on school/camp trips even though i will probably spend the whole time worrying about them/missing them :)

    I’ve been in a bit of a blogging funk and haven’t been doing my gratitude lists. I must get back to it this week. It might even help get me out of the funk by focusing on all the good things that I have to be grateful for :)

    Nice to see a bit of downtime in this list. Don’t over do things too much!

    Lots of things to be thankful for! Lazy days are great after a busy summer aren’t they!

    A lovely list as always and lots of nice things to feel happy about. Stationery shopping has to be the best doesn’t it?!

    What a lovely stone of list of things to be grateful for. This week I have been able to spend lots of time with family for which I’m truly grateful.

    OOh there is nothing better than the smell of fresh tomatoes, especially homegrown ones x

    ooh, tomatoes fresh from the garden, mmm! reminds me of my gran :)

    I love that you stationary shop at the usual time even though you home school :D xx

    My boys too both adore stationery as much as I do and we visited Tiger in London for the first time yesterday and they had a ball!

    Such lovely reasons to be grateful. I miss my son, he’s been away with his dad for two weeks and it’s HARD!

  14. August 31, 2014 / 21:26

    I have to join in with this, it’s such a great idea!

    Sounds like you have been busy and productive but also been finding time for yourself to relax and find peace. Very glad to hear your oven is working again by the way – what a nightmare

    The oven breaking sounds like a good excuse to eat out. No washing up either – bonus x
