Ever come up with a blog post idea only to find that you’ve already done it? I thought it would be nice to tell you about what I am thankful for, but apparently I already did that last year. Of course, I’m still going to do it. I think it’s a good thing to remind yourself what you are thankful for!
So, I’m thankful…
…for Alex. Even when I am super exasperated with him, he still makes me laugh and then I forget why I am so annoyed at him. Good skills, boy.
…for friends who are amazing, despite the distance. (not forgetting friends who are close by, you’re pretty ace too)
…for Fern, she may be a super stupid spaniel, but she’s very cute and sweet. Except when she wakes me up by licking my face and having dog breath. Not cool, spaniel.
…for my job – it’s kinda strange being a permament member of staff again after 4 years, but I am so grateful that I have a job I quite enjoy doing (and that my jury duty happened when I wasn’t temping!)
…for big cups of tea, pop tarts (POP TARTS!), seaweed crack and peppermint white hot chocolates at Starbucks (Sorry Starbucks employees, I have taken to apologising to you before I order because my order is getting ridiculous for ONE DRINK)
…for discovering that my body *can* go to the gym and *can* do stuff there. It’s not really something I’ve talked about on here, but it’s quite strange (but nice!) to find that actually, I quite enjoy going to the gym. (It’s just the getting there in the cold, dark and rain that’s painful)
…for my crazy family, because they understand why I do stuff (and my dad is getting super competitive with me about losing weight. “I’ve lost 2 more stones than you!” “Daddy, you have a hell of a lot more than me to lose though” That didn’t go down well. Heh.)
…for blogging – yes, I get driven crazy by the community (didn’t you see my blog annoyances post?) but I love that sometimes, just sometimes, bloggers can come together to do some good. (I assume you’ve bought a ticket for the bloggers tea party next month in aid of Macmillan. If not, you probably should hurry, there’s only 2 tickets left at the time I write this!)
…for Twitter, because each year, I meet more and more awesome new people. I know that so many people write Twitter off as a waste of time, but I know I would not be where I am right now without it.
…for PORKS. Yeah, you knew that would be on the list. (I’m hoping the quote in the image comes true on this point ;))
Soooooooooooooooooo, what are you thankful for? Link me to your blog posts if you do a similar kind of post!
Woohoo! The event is now sold out : ) Well done Hayley. I don’t think I’ve done a ‘Thankful’ style post but I do like my weekly Rock The Week posts (https://shipshapeandbristolfashion.wordpress.com/category/rock-the-week/), as it’s half a diary, half a chance to remember the little things that make my life pretty darn good, even if it is just food I’ve eaten… ; )
I’m thankful for health and for being finally healthy. For family and friends and awesome blogger buddies. I am also thankful for GIN and will celebrate my non-crutchness by going for gin with you one day. Yes. Really. I will socialise of my own free will.
I am thankful for my friends, family and my job, I have managed to do so much this year and I am so grateful for that!
I did a weekend-specific gratitude post:
Like you say, it’s always good to remind ourselves what we’re thankful for. Especially in this crappy weather!
