It has been one heck of a week. Again. It's been full of sickness and poorly children, which has sucked. I need to remind myself that there ARE reasons to be thankful because this week has been super chaotic and a bit blah if I'm honest.
So here are my reasons to be thankful this week.
1) I am thankful that we are slowly all getting better. I just can not wait until we are all better. Poor Harry has a horrendous cough and is just not himself at all. Thankfully the school are understanding and they know he is genuinely ill because he never, ever has time off school. He loves school!
2) I am thankful that I live in a house with heating. We take these small things in life for granted. Before we moved into this house (almost three years ago), our house had no heating and it was absolutely bitter cold during the winter. I used electric heaters which were very expensive to run and as soon as they had been turned off, it would freezing cold again. I am SO thankful for central heating.
3) I've finally made a (small) start on my Christmas shopping. I am thankful I am able to do this. I don't have a lot of money but at least I am able to buy a few bits here and there. So many people can't and so many people will go without this Christmas and that saddens me so much! I will be donating to the local food bank and donating some of the little's old toys that they longer play with, to a local charity.
We are seriously so lucky. I'm feeling very grateful and blessed :)
