I am so glad that I’ve started writing these gratitude lists. I said it last week and I’ll say it again, life is so much better when I practice gratitude. It’s amazing how much more positive and upbeat I feel, and more importantly how much amazing stuff has happened in the space of a week. Practicing gratitude really does work!
Its been a pretty amazing week. So many exciting things are happening in every facet of my life and I can barely keep up with it, but you know what, I prefer it a million times over to the way that I was thinking and feeling just a few weeks ago. I’m in a totally different place and I can feel it. As always there are so many things to feel grateful for this week, the big and the small including:
#1 A last minute and very fun day out at Chessington with my sister and the little ones. We had such a lovely time and Ella really enjoyed her first theme park experience.
#2 Getting sent a set of MegaBloks for each of the children as part of a collaboration with the blog. I always feel like our children are so lucky to be sent so many lovely things to play with, test and review.
#3 Getting sent some amazing new GLTC toys and furniture for us to test with the little ones over the next few weeks.
#4 A lovely Mothers Day at home with the Mr and the little ones. It was a very quiet one, but it was just what this mama needed.
#5 Getting to go to the No7 event with my sister this week. It was lovely to meet some other bloggers that I speak to online, hear some inspirational women speak and just generally have a few hours where I got to talk to adults, eat grown up food and drink a little bit of alcohol. A night off well spent I’d say!
#6 Seeing the little guy learn to wave for the first time this week. Every single first is so special and this one was no exception. I can’t believe how much our little guy has grown.
#7 Finally getting all our family photos that we’ve been meaning to print for the last five years printed . It feels like massive progress on the home project front and it feels like everything is finally coming together. I just cant wait to actually get them up on the walls now.
#8 Finding the gumption to pick my little business project back off the floor and get it going again – I’m totally feeling the fear and doing it anyway, watch this space!
#9 More exciting new collaborations and opportunities from the blog.
