Five Things To Be Grateful For… Day Five

As this is my last of my five days of five things to be grateful for posts I am going to look at more general things today instead of things that happened today.
1) Family
I am lucky to have a lovely, supportive family, both here at home with Rob and with my parents and other family members further a field. The saying goes that it takes a village to raise a child and my only wish was that we all did live in the same village!! I don’t know what I’d have done without all their help over the last two years.

2) Friends
I count myself very lucky to have some amazing friends, both old and quite new. With my oldest friends I know that I don’t have to see them all the time to know that they’re there and we can pick up wherever we leave off. With my new friends, I don’t think that I’d be getting through the course without them!

3) The Twins
I am so totally in love with being a mama and know how lucky I am to have my boy and my girl. They make me smile and laugh, even on my saddest day, and they amaze me every day with their development. Yes, I may have turned into one of those women whose life and conversations revolve around her amazing offspring, but I am not sorry- they’re brilliant!


4) Food
I am unfortunately never going to be size 0 due to my obscene love of food! Being married to an Italian means I have access to some delicious food at the drop of a hat (homemade tiramisu anyone?!). Our favourite evenings involve good food and a good film, what else could I wish for?

5) Our Lovely, Comfy Bed
Every night when I climb into bed, I am thankful for it being the most comfortable place in the universe. Speaking of which….

Night night all!


Five Things To Be Grateful For… Day Two

1) I got to spend the morning with my dear friend, J. Doing this intensive course means it would be easy for me to turn in to a hermit of epic proportions, so it’s always really good when I can spend time with those people important to me.


2) My parents came to visit this afternoon. We like having visitors, especially ones who are very helpful with entertaining the twins!!! Biscuit and Cracker love their Grammy and Mamps so much and get so excited when they’re around.

3) We went for a nice walk for Grammy and Mamps. Rob got to have a nap after his early start and busy shift at work so we sneaked out and let him enjoy the peace and quiet. Biscuit and Cracker walked the whole way (on their reins) and we so good in shops and even trying to help me carry the shopping home afterwards. It amazes me on a daily basis how much they have grown and developed in 23 short months. I love seeing them become the gorgeous little people they have come.

4) We have finished birthday shopping for Biscuit and Cracker. They turn two in two weeks time (eek, when did that happen?!) and we’ve wanted to get them things that will last them for a while. Our living room already resembles an Early Learning Centre, so maybe our next purchases after their birthday should be storage boxes!!

5) Beautiful cuddles with my gorgeous kitty cat, I. She isn’t a lap cat, but she likes company and being around for cuddles (when she wants them). She is getting used to the twins and will even let them stroke her a little bit now! However, she does definitely prefer some child-free cuddles at times.


Night all! Here’s to another grateful day tomorrow….
