#365daysofgratitude – Week 21

#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:


Sophie looking in a mirror at the carvery; Jessica and Sophie in the paddling pool; Sophie outside school; Sophie with her keyworker; Sophie and Jessica having a cuddle; my wedding and engagement rings; Jessica in her buggy - #365daysofgratitude Week 20


Day 141 – I am grateful for family time enjoying a Sunday roast at the carvery.

Day 142 – I am grateful for being able to have the paddling pool out after school for the first time this year.

Day 143 – I am grateful for another day with my little monkeys. Today I have held them a little closer. The world is a scary place. My heart breaks for those whose worlds have been ripped apart in the last 24 hours.

Day 144 – I am grateful for this lovely lady who has been Jessica and Sophie’s key worker at preschool. Having to trust someone else to look after Jessica and be alert to her colour and concerning signs was a huge step for me. The staff at preschool, and especially Sarah, made me feel she was in safe hands. I am so sad she won’t be seeing Sophie through her time at preschool too though and wish her all the best of luck with her new job. Thank you for everything Sarah xx

Day 145 – I am grateful for hubby being around to do bedtime tonight.

Day 146 – I am grateful for being reunited with my wedding and engagement rings after having them resized.

Day 147 – I am grateful for Jessica’s buggy which means I can enjoy long walks with both my girls again.

    Aww I do love these posts you write. How lovely that you had the same keyworker throughout Jessica’s time at pre-school and most of Sophie’s too. What a shame that she won’t see Sophie through to the end, but it sounds like it was Jessica that needed her more and I’m sure Sophie will cope just fine.

      Thanks Nat. I think Sophie will be fine too – it would have been harder if the keyworker had left when Jessica was at preschool x
