Gratitude list

Today is Thursday but it is a Friday for me.  I’ve taken a days leave and cannot wait for my 3 day weekend to begin.  4:00pm:  you can arrive now!

We have no big plans – literally just a weekend where we’ll see what happens and I’m really looking forward to it.  This week was a short one – Monday being a holiday but it felt like a much longer week.  I felt like I was constantly catching up with the previous day.  I’m super behind on housework, need to get on top of laundry and hoping do a bit of pottering around in the garden.  More rain is expected next week so hoping to plant some flowers over the weekend.  I also want to do a wardrobe switch and move summer clothes out and pack away some winter ones.  The weather is slowly warming up but today is quite overcast so I won’t be packing all my winter clothes away just yet!

I cannot believe September is nearly over and Monday is the 1st October – time is flying. To end off my week I’m doing my gratitude list a day earlier:

  • A 3 day weekend that was awesome. Did day trips to Hermanus and Arniston.
  • Seeing Blue Cranes on Sunday. Such beautiful birds
  • New hair! Had highlights and a cut on Monday.  I feel ready for spring!
  • Spoiling myself with shampoo and conditioner from the salon (I usually buy from the supermarket but felt like giving my new highlights a treat).
  • Hot chocolate with marshmallows.
  • Naps over the long weekend.
  • Old episodes of Modern Family
  • Rain
  • Letting go of something I cannot control and focusing on the good stuff in my life instead.
  • Weather has been less cold in the mornings and evenings. Spring is here!

What about you? What is on your gratitude list this week?

  2. Hey sweetie,

    Hope you had a lovely restful weekend. I’m still gushing over your hair. I love it. Lately I’ve been getting headaches and figure it’s from piling my hair on top of my head so I’ve got to nip that in the bud or just say fk it and cut it.
    Also been thinking like you have, about switching out the clothing, only for me it’s the warm, wooly, ugly layers LMAO. I have a list of things I wanna move and clean this week but I never feel like cleaning during the week because the evenings are short…

    Love that you also went to Hermanus, I know how much you and Mark enjoy that place.
    Anyways, have a fab week hun. xoxo
