Weekly catchup

It was a 4 day week and yet felt so much longer!  Goodness I’m ready for 4:00pm to roll around!

Each Friday Lindsay http://theflynnigans.com/ Charlotte http://mypixieblog.com/ and Beth http://www.thebethnextdoor.com/  host a link up called What’s up weekend?  Bloggers take stock of what made them happy during the week and it is a wonderful way to start the weekend as we share our gratitude lists.

This week I’m grateful for:

  • An amazing long weekend. Haven’t felt so relaxed in ages.
  • 4 day week afterwards – felt like cheating having Tuesday feel like a Monday
  • Lunch with a work friend in a coffee shop nearby.  I had a delicious breakfast for lunch.
  • Taking a drive to Strand after work on Tuesday. Hubby didn’t get the photo he wanted but it was a spontaneous mid-week adventure.
  • Pizza on Wednesday
  • https://www.facebook.com/groups/ThePeacefulPosse/   I am so grateful to have connected with this amazing group of bloggers.  I love the Friday and monthly link ups where we share our gratitude lists and monthly goals.  So often I’ve read a blog post and it resonates with me so much.  This group is wonderful and while I’ve always enjoyed blogging – I feel I cannot get enough of it now.
  • Lucy Diamond – I adore her books and currently enjoying “The house of new beginnings”
  • Tea with honey
  • Hand cream that smells amazing. Loving my Oh So Heavenly Bye-Bye Stress at the moment.
  • Tomorrow is the anniversary of hubby’s proposal. 11 years ago we drove to Chapmans Peak and he asked me to be his wife.

What is on your gratitude this list?

  1. Happy Friday!! I love our Peaceful Posse group too, I’m glad you love it as well! And what is it about short weeks that sometimes feel long? At least it is Friday now though, right?


    • It is such a lovely group 🙂
      I don’t understand short weeks that drag and then feel longer than a normal 5 day week!


    • Yes I find the group so encouraging and learning about fellow bloggers had been great 🙂


  2. Tea and honey sound good! I’m glad you found the Posse so now we have all found you 🙂 Yay for short work weeks and your proposal anniversary ! Have a great weekend!!


    • Thank you – hope you had a great weekend.
      Being part of this lovely blogging group has been wonderful 🙂


  3. I’m so bad at consistently practicing gratitude. You have a great list and it’s a good reminder that anything, big or small, can go on our gratitude lists.

    I drink warm water with honey! Who needs tea? 🙂


    • Yes I agree the list can be made up of big and small things – I love Fridays and reflecting on the past week’s positives is a great start to the weekend.
      I drink warm water throughout the day but haven’t had it with honey yet. Tea is my weakness!


    • Mid week adventures just turn an ordinary work day into something fun 🙂

  4. I just love you, you know that girl? You’re just the best. 🙂
    Thankfully for me, I have a 3 day long weekend coming up and I couldnt be more grateful as I’m getting a bit grouchy and fed up with crap especially as of late.
    Too bad your Hubby didn’t get the intended photo but little adventures are fun nevertheless. 🙂

    Have a great week my dear. xoxo


    • Same to you Lindsay 🙂
      Hope you enjoyed your long weekend (aren’t 3 day weekends just the best!)
      Can totally relate – I’m feeling so grouchy and out of sorts lately.
      We were disappointed about not getting the photo but it was a lovely little adventure 🙂
      Hope you are having a better week this week. I know it is Tuesday but I’m ready for Friday.
