i'm grateful for.....

Oh with this sunshine Melbourne is getting today, it's easy to feel grateful.  Joining in with Maxabella Loves on this day to be grateful.....

1. Trying something new - My son was quite adamant that he did not want to dress up for Dress Up Day at Kinder yesterday, however at the 11th hour changed his mind and he had his mother in a slight whirl to get a costume together, but we managed and I think, he loved trying something new.

2. Sleep-ins - Whilst not an official sleep like a log sleep-in, this morning (after a rather late night out by my standards last night) I was given the luxury of laying in (listening to my raucous children awake at 6.15am) whilst my mother-in-law attended to them.  Thankyou!

3. Finding some adorable new blogs - if you haven't already, check these ones out.

4. reaching 100 followers!  Man you guys rock.  I'm not afraid to say it, but when I saw it click over, I was a little happy, a little excited, and still a little surprised that what I put here people come and read.  But I'll mostly be grateful xx

Happy Grateful day to you all

  1. First time reading you blog found you via Maxabella loves.... gratz on the 100 followers....I think I just made it 101... lol...
    I got a lay in this week thanks to my husband...don't you just love that you can hear them but you don't have to do a thing except close you eyes and go back to sleep for a little while ..
    have a blessed weekend

  2. Do you remember that I staged a street parade I hit 100? I think it's a great event in a blogger's life. Like a 21st or something :). I went over and checked out the fireman costume and you've done it again. Just such a clever, inventive person, Brenda. I love it.

    Happy day to you! x
