Well,  hello lovely bloggy friends.  Yes, been a little quiet here this week with a two little sickies mid-week but happy to say all is fine and well as we approach the weekend.

Joining in with the ever so adorable Maxabella Loves on this day to be grateful!

Today, I'm grateful for...

1.  Good books - Whilst the kiddies were sick, and resting up on the couch this week I took the opportunity to get some day time reading done.  With kids heads on my lap or curled up beside me offering comfort when they needed, I took time out and read Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.  Wow - amazing book.

2. Night out - so in order to recharge I set off with my gorgeous friend from down the road and we hit the busy streets of Carlton to enjoy the movie - and it totally lived up to my expectations.

3. A treat -  and of course we enjoyed some delectable goodies at Brunetti's afterwards.  Lovely way to end the week.

I hope your weekend is wonderful and Happy Grateful Day!  Link up here and join in the fun.



  1. no good for sick kiddies but yay for a movie & brunettis!
    hope your weekend is filled with fabulousness Bren ♥

  2. Thanks for your review, a friend last night said they saw it and didn't like it at all.

    I guess it's going to be one of those movies you either love or hate. Might just have to go see it.

  3. have heard great things about this movie - but reading it is an even better idea!!
    hope your kiddies are on the mend too...
    have a great weekend Brenda

  4. Oh hope the little ones are feeling better.

    Brunetti's envy. Imiss that place.

  5. Well, now I'm confused. Al totally slammed the Elephant Movie over on her blog and here you are just loving it... I might have to go after all, just to see who I agree with! x

  6. I bought the book 2nd hand yesterday and now can't decide to read it before or after I see the film. So nice that you got to get out and about with a friend for the night.

  7. The movie looks amazing but I really want to read the book first. Sometimes the movie just doesn't do the book justice.

    Glad your kiddies are back to full health xx

  8. Book, movie and Brunettis - heaven. Hope your kids are feeling much better now.

  9. it was the perfect girls night out, a beautiful love story a pear frangipane & dark choc cherry bomb, hello happiness :)
