Thousands of things

This week I am grateful that so many little things go right every day, even though I may sometimes feel like the days are pretty rough with Miss A being only 6 weeks old and Miss M being, well, her usual toddler self! This image came up on my newsfeed this week and it’s a great thought to begin the New Year with. So, today I am grateful that nobody is sick, the water and electric are on, breastfeeding continues to go so well, sun was shining so we could go for a walk, didn’t run out of milk, managed to get a wash on, flooded the laundry but caught it in time and no serious damage, internet working, remembered to hang the washing out, Miss M napped easily, Miss A is slept well too, and I got some much-needed down time….the list is endless when I really think about it! For that, I am grateful.

This is post 1/52 of 52 Weeks of Grateful

    1. Ha! I wrote this in a good moment. I am not always so positive, especially e.g. when I have one chomping at my leaking boobs and the other simultaneously poos in her knickers then wees a big puddle on the floor etc etc. But, I try 😉 Just checked out your blog, how cute are your boys! Following – looks like we have some stuff in common 🙂
