Grateful for…a whole lot

Well this week has been hectic, frustrating and draining but on reflection I find I’m grateful for a lot of things, without which it could have been a whole lot worse.

1. Australia Post – I know. Strange huh?  Never thought I’d find myself saying it but it’s true.  I love shopping online and think it’s a great way to purchase gifts, but this week I left my run a little late. It was a close call but the poster and the postie both came through for me & I received my item today in time for gifting to a very special someone tomorrow!

.la douleur exquise.

2. Consciencous work mates – few & far between where I work, but those few are awesome and have saved me a lot of hassle by covering my training sessions for the rest of the days I don’t normally work. No more last minute babysitters required!

3. Male parental figure at my house (aka The Man) – without whom a certain monster would rule the roost. Not sure why, but I have absolutely no control over Bam Bam. We have a trashed bedroom &  scratches on my arm after today’s attempts to get him to nap which stand testimony to this!  The Man, on the other hand, just says the word & he’s asleep. My theory is that they speak the same language. Go figure.

4. Microwaves – without which I would not still be drinking a hot coffee which was originally made 4 hours ago.

And last, but definitely not least…

5. Red wine & chocolate – no further elaboration required.

What are you grateful for this week? Don’t forget to pop over to Maxabella loves… for some more thankful thoughts.

  1. A little jump of excitement always grabs me when I see the parcel man outside..anticipation!

    • I know! Lately it’s been my husband’s wine deliveries though so it was nice to be for me for a change. Not that I don’t partake in a fair share of the wine 😉

  2. love red wine and chocolate – especially with girly company! and exciting mail (ie not bills) always makes my day .. lovely post. hope you don’t mind a new follower .. x

  3. Great gratefuls!

  4. Not strange at all. I LOVE Aust Post. The whole idea that I can send a little something across Australia for about $1.80 for a little package is just amazing to me. AMAZING. x
