#365daysofgratitude – Week 48

#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 330 – I am grateful for the girls’ beautiful new reversible dresses that Grandma and Grandad bought them at RHS Wisley craft fayre.

Day 331 – I am grateful for the Christmas lights which made a cold rainy walk to the shops much less dreary!

Day 332 – I am grateful for managing to rescue tonight’s dinner after realising 10 mins after putting it in the oven that I’d forgotten to put egg in the Yorkshire pudding batter. Took it out, scraped the batter off the sausages and put back in a fresh tin with the batter correctly made. It came out all right in the end!

Day 333 – I am grateful for the lovely handmade advent calendar that the girls received today from Godmummy Gillian.

Day 334 – I am grateful for warm hats, coats and gloves on a cold day.

Day 335 – I am grateful for a lovely start to the festive season. We’ve opened various advent calendars and my littlest lady has enjoyed her preschool Christmas party and her first proper evening at Girls’ Brigade now that she has officially started going. I quite enjoyed having a little bit of me time too while both girls were at Girls’ Brigade.

Day 336 – I am grateful for an afternoon to get the Christmas shopping done while the girls had a wonderful time at the Girls’ Brigade District Advent event. Love Jessica’s face on seeing Father Christmas.

    I love those dresses, fabulous that they are reversible too, that will save on washing! Glad you’ve all had a lovely week.
