#365daysofgratitude – Week 16

#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 106 – I am grateful for getting to watch these four little cousins having fun together and enjoying their Easter egg hunt.

Day 107 – I am grateful for a wonderful two weeks with my gorgeous girls for the Easter holidays. I’m feeling quite sad that Jessica is back at school tomorrow – will miss having my big girl at home all day.

Day 108 – I am grateful for the blissful innocence of childhood. The most important thing in their world this afternoon was which princess would be the winner of the race. No stress or anxiety about politics or what is happening in the world. Just the joy of being engrossed in small world play. Long may that bubble last!

Day 109 – I am grateful for painkillers, heat pads made from rice-filled socks and having hubby home this morning to take over getting the girls ready and do the school run. I woke up this morning with a very sore stiff neck and couldn’t move my head at all at first. Thankfully it is now easing and I have some movement back again. I’m also thankful that today was Sophie’s preschool day so I had a chance to rest.

Day 110 – I am grateful for wipes and washing powder!

Day 111 – I am grateful for a visit to the fairy village. Sophie loved seeing all the little fairy doors and left some blossoms outside one in case Tinkerbell opened the door after we left.

Day 112 – I am grateful for a rare date night revisiting memories of uni days at the StageSoc 15th anniversary reunion. Hubby and I were founding members of the society. So lovely that it is still going strong even if I have just had a conversation with someone who was born the year I started uni!
