Grateful for the little things

As another busy shift at ‘the office’ draws to an end it’s left me feeling desperate for the door grateful. I’m grateful for lots of things but firstly for the many wonderful, funny and supportive colleagues I have the pleasure of sharing my working life with.

For the loving family that patiently wait for me to arrive home with a hot cup of tea……usually at the very least 30 minutes later than I should arrive! Then listen and offer hugs and more tea when needed.

For the little boy who greets me on a Monday morning with excited eyes because I’m home and he has missed me over the weekend.

Life in our household may never be 100% perfect but 99% of the time I think we are happy. We laugh daily and we have our health and for that I’m truly grateful.


And then out of the darkest clouds appeared a rainbow or two 🙂


Ahhh Sunshine at last!!

We live in East Devon. You may or may not have seen on the news about the disastrous flooding that has happened recently? It has ruined lots of peoples homes and created havoc for all kinds of transport. I feel we are lucky in that our home is relatively unaffected…….apart from the leak in the roof but at least it is still standing and we have our home. For this I am thankful.

Due to the adverse weather conditions we have sort of become prisoners in our home. Unable really to go out and let Little C run off energy. It’s been terrible. We usually go out every day as I feel it helps to keep me sane! I think I suffer cabin fever lol. For the past 3 mornings we have woken up to hideous weather. We have baked, painted and played numerous games but tempers and tantrums were fraying…….we needed to get out!

This mornings sunshine was a welcome break. We grabbed our welly boots and hot footed it to the beach. Desperate not to miss a second of the glorious Vitamin D!! And as an added bonus LLP (Life Long Partner) aka Daddy was on lates so he was able to join us.


Today has been the perfect end to my 2 weeks of Annual Leave…….back to work tomorrow!
