#365daysofgratitude – Week 15

#365daysofgratitude is my challenge for 2017 to share one photo a day on Instagram of something I am grateful for. I took part in a similar challenge last year and loved it so am looking forward to continuing with it this year. Here are the things that I’ve been grateful for over the past week:


Day 99 – I am grateful for Jessica finally being able to ride a bike! She’s always struggled with the effort to push the pedals round and today she finally managed to get the hang of it!

Day 100 – I am grateful for being five years on from Jessica’s last open heart surgery. She managed a reasonable walk in the woods today following the Easter trail although was very tired by the end and needed a nap to recover. Her energy levels are a little lower than they were last year but she still amazes me by how much she manages to do. Happy heart day beautiful girl!

Day 101 – I am grateful for a lovely afternoon with my twin sister and nieces.

Day 102 – I am grateful for a fun baking session with my girls and their cousins making hot cross buns using the recipes and ingredients we were sent from NOW TV.

Day 103 – I am grateful for spending time with my big sister – the girls have loved having a couple of nights having a sleepover at Auntie “Raynne’s”.

Day 104 – I am grateful for a lovely gift – a beautiful quilt and cushion made by my very talented friend. It’s one of the nicest presents I’ve ever had.

Day 105 – I am grateful for a lovely heart family day out at Cliveden with these three special little ladies.

  1. Oh how lovely that Jessica is managing to ride a bike now. I think children’s bikes are really quite heavy so it’s difficult for them to pedal. Libby has finally mastered it but I’ve realised I’m not helping her with the type of bike she’s got. I think we’ll get her a lighter one for her birthday.

    1. Thanks Nat – I think you’re right in that children’s bikes really are too heavy sometimes. I’m sure a lighter bike would make a big difference.
