Happy Friday

I’m linking up with Lindsay http://theflynnigans.com/ Charlotte http://mypixieblog.com/ and Beth http://coffeeuntilcocktailsblog.com/  with my gratitude list for the week.

Got back to work on Monday after a blissful time on leave and let me say this week felt a bit longer than 5 days!

  • Wonderful time on leave. Loads of amazing wildlife sightings, great weather, pampering at the spa, lazing by the pool and enjoying ourselves.  I’m still downloading pics and will do a proper post next week.  Here is one relaxing in the amazing heat we had during the afternoon.  Wish I felt so chilled permanently.

  • Coming back to rain and cooler weather – felt strange to wear a jacket on the way home from the airport but we are always grateful for the rain here.
  • My Dad’s checkup going well at the Dr last week.
  • Finishing a book I couldn’t put down “The family upstairs” by Lisa Jewell.  Looking forward to reviewing it soon.
  • Switching off my phone and having zero interruptions for a full week – it was BLISS.
  • Having a pedicure and manicure while we were away and enjoying my pretty nails all week.
  • Sleeping so well in the cooler weather
  • Biltong nuggets – such a delicious snack
  • Chilled weekday evenings. Been taking it easy at gym and haven’t got back into my routine just yet. Been nice to have slow evenings after work to chill in front of our series and sitcoms.
  • Playing bowls after work yesterday evening and winning a prize afterwards – a chocolate which Mark and I enjoyed with some tea late last night!

And now the weekend is a few hours away and I cannot wait.  There is rugby to watch tomorrow.  We have a day trip up the West Coast planned.  One of those relaxing weekends that are very much needed after a long week.

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

  1. You both look so happy and relaxed in that picture! I’m glad you had a lovely time away! I’m glad to hear your dad had a good outcome at the doctor. I’m jealous of your manicure and pedicure. I could use me one of those. I do have an appointment for a manicure later this month for my birthday though! Have a great weekend my friend!


    • Thanks Beth – we were so relaxed and I find the more time I spend in nature the more chilled I feel.
      My Dad’s Dr was happy with his check up and he has to go again in a months time.
      Enjoy your manicure later in the month – pretty nails always make me feel so pampered 🙂


  2. That sounds like an incredible vacation. Some wildlife, relaxation, spa time, manicure/pedicure…. sign me up! Hi both really do look so incredibly relaxed!

    I’ll have to add that book to my list. I read another one by Lisa Jewell and loved it so much! Hope you have a beautiful when’s ahead and also very happy to hear of your poppa’s news!!


    • Thanks Charlotte 🙂
      I absolutely love Lisa Jewell’s books and highly recommend this one! My TBR list just keeps growing but whenever I get a book by her I always read it first!
      We are so happy with my Dad’s check up and now just hope his eye continues to improve with time.


  3. I’ve heard a lot of good things about that book- it was on tour for TLC Book Tours earlier this year.
