Friday at last!

This week has dragged by so slowly, it felt like Friday would never arrive.  But here we are *does a happy dance*

I am seriously doing a countdown to 4:00pm as I type this.

Anyway despite being a long week with a few irritations along the way (I found a self-appointed expert to be bloody annoying, I hardly found time to gym and I let silly things get to me) there is alot to be grateful for.  So here is this weeks list of things that made me happy:

  • Mark’s project at work is going well.  He did a course in March and is now working on a huge project as well as doing all his work.  I’m so proud of him and his dedication.
  • PNA had a sale last week.  Now as someone who adores stationery – this was wonderful.  I went on Friday after work.  Then I went again on Sunday (I had to make sure I hadn’t missed something)!
  • Awesome Saturday.  Woke up and had delicious flapjacks and bacon for breakfast, took a long and scenic drive to Franschhoek and visited the Station Pub.  We sat outside and it was quite cold but we warmed up instantly when our lunches arrived.  I had been thinking about pizza for days and it was worth the wait!
  • Attending a very interesting client seminar on Tuesday.
  • Doing the grocery shopping last night after work for this weekend.  My word but I don’t enjoy grocery shopping!  Shoe and clothing shopping?  YES.  Book shopping?  YES.  Stationery shopping?  HOORAY.  Grocery shopping?  MEH.  Ended up going to 3 different shops to get everything (major annoyance) but I cannot wait for tonights comfort food and treats that are just waiting at home ready to be enjoyed.
  • Working out a new fitness/healthy eating plan.  Still very much in progress but I don’t want to let my gym card gather dust just because it is winter.
  • Reading with a cup of tea first thing in the morning.
  • Rain is predicted this weekend and again next week (praying we get LOADS).
  • Mark making me laugh out loud at the most random things – I am grateful for my husband’s sense of humour as I sometimes forget mine when I’m stressing over nonsense.
  • Two days of fun and relaxation are less than 8 hours away!

What about you?  What is currently on your gratitude list?

    Hey Momma,
    How was your weekend? Are you thick in the throes of your wintertime? Are you getting rain?

    Curious, but with you loving stationary, do you also have a penchant for fountain pens like my husband does? He LOVES stationary and fountain pens.
    Like you as well, I stress too much and I’m far too serious, so I appreciate my husband’s sense of humour and efforts to try and always make me laugh. 🙂

    Have a great week, love. xo

    P.S. cannot stand going to 34723 different grocery stores just to get everything off that list. So annoying!

    Hi Lindsay,
    Weekend was relaxing and just what I needed 🙂 It is very cold today and we are expecting rain tomorrow (hoping it is loads and loads).
    I love all stationery and have a had a few fancy pens but haven’t had a fountain pen (yet). I cannot go past a stationery store and we have Typo here which is just wonderful for stationery addicts like myself!
    My hubby’s sense of humour can turn a day around for me. Glad you can relate – I wish I could stress less over silly things.
    Have a great week.
    ps I’ve started the “sentence a day” – keeping a record on my phone for a blog post about June 🙂
