Today I'm Grateful For ...

Today I'm grateful for:

  • The lovely Maxabella Loves for giving us the chance to reflect on the things in life we are grateful for.  It is something we should practice regularly.
  • Being part of this online community.  I wish it was around when my children were younger.
  • Nurofen Plus - have suffered a few headaches this week and without the Nurofen it would have been ugly.
  • Blood - the ability to make it and share it with those who need it - I gave blood for the first time this week.
  • Water - it is the nectar of the gods.  On a hot day there is nothing better than a big glass of iced water.  I'm also quite partial to swimming in it and having showers.  In fact is there nothing more versatile than water?
  • Books - I love to read, I love book shops, I love to write.  While there are always books, I will never be bored.
  • Fingers - without them I wouldn't be sitting here typing blog posts, tweeting and researching.



  1. Well done for donating blood!
    I discovered when pregnant that my blood was a rare negative blood type, and I'd need Anti-D injections throughout my pregnancies [Anti-D is the plasma of other negative types made solely for women like myself to ensure our babies survive] and if it wasn't for kind individuals such as yourself, I wouldn't be the Mummy of Two I am today.
    When I am given the go ahead, I am donating as much as I can in the hopes it helps someone else like me :)

  2. So many great reasons to be grateful - I must say I love the last one - I'm grateful for my fingers too!! x

  3. Heh, heh, the fingers bit made me smile. They are growing more and more useful in communicating by the day. x

  4. The online community has been on my grateful list for a while, but I am yet to write a post to express it. And yes, I am grateful for my fingers, too :) My grateful post is about your yesterday's post at
