Weekly gratitude list

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.

I’m a day late with my list but since I was off ill yesterday I feel I have an excuse!  My throat is feeling much better – amazing what comfort food, lots of tea and reading can do 🙂

My list for the past week include:

  • Hubby graduated from his business college – I’m very proud of him
  • Breakfast with my Aunt last Saturday.  We chatted for ages and just had a wonderful catch up over good food.
  • Shopping with a friend on Sunday.   I bought 2 new outfits, pumps, sandals and pj’s.
  • Relaxing Monday evening after work.  Biltong and wine outside in the garden.
  • Rain
  • Fun date night on Wednesday – dinner at one of our favourite restaurants.
  • Dunkin Donuts.  They arrived in Cape Town a little while ago but this week was the first time we tried them.


  • On track with my book goal for the year.  I aimed to read 40 books and I’m about to finish no. 32.
  • A spotless home.  When our home is clean and tidy and I’ve tackled the laundry I instantly feel more organised.
  • A compliment from a client.  Always such a good feeling when your work is appreciated.

The weekend so far has been good.  Had breakfast at the Rambling Rose, did grocery shopping and then when back to Dunkin Donuts for treats for later 🙂

What are you up to this weekend?

  1. We’d be interested in hearing more about your opinion of DD. It’s an institution here. Americans divide themselves between DD fans and Starbucks fans.


    • We’ve visited Dunkin Donuts 3 times this week…..the donuts are absolutely delicious!


  2. Great list and lots of wonderful things! Way to go on your book goal. I am so behind. I had my goal set to 50 and am only in the 20s. I won’t meet it this year… that’s okay!


    • This is highest I set my book goal – usually I’m luck to get to 30!
      20 something books is still awesome 🙂


  3. That’s fantastic your husband graduated; congrats to him. I hope you guys celebrated afterwards. 🙂
    You and I are the same. A clean home makes us both feel so much better about life and on top of things. I always feel much better after I clean. 🙂
    I’m jealous of your shopping trip – you go girl, enjoy! 😉 xo have a great week my friend!


    • Had a lovely dinner last week to celebrate 🙂
      Yes – I totally agree I feel better about life and more on top of things when I’ve cleaned 🙂
      I have a friend I always go on my shopping trips with because we browse and take our time. Mark is really glad because he doesn’t enjoy shopping 🙂
      Hope you are having a great week so far.
