Thankfulness Oct 20

Today I am thanking God for:

You know it's going to be a good morning when
the first thing you see on entering your child's room
is their nappy.  On the floor.  Nice and clean and dry.

975.  My long suffering boss for letting me switch my work days around this week;

Thankfulness Oct 18

Today I am thanking God for:

Is she facepalming me???


968.  Dinner with some Mums who get it;

969.  Aunty Carolin for minding the kids yet again;

970.  Ashlea's imagination.  Her latest request is that I buy her a magic wand.  A real one.  So she can turn herself into a mouse to run up the clock.  Or into a Dodo bird.  Anyone got any ideas how I'm going to get out of this one?  If I tell her they don't exist she just thinks I'm being mean and refusing to buy one!


Psalm 147:7 
Sing to the Lord with grateful praise;

Thankfulness Oct 14

Today I am thanking God for:

More gorgeous school pics

955.  My kids who think they are winning when they play the sneaky home work game.  In the sneaky home work game they sneak into Emma's room and pretend to be playing but actually do their home work quickly and quietly and without me having to nag them.  How am I not the clear winner of this game?  I love it;

956.  Home work done for the week by 4pm on a Tuesday;

957.  Rachel's roast chicken for dinner and the miracle that is my kids actually eating their dinner.

Thankfulness Oct 13

Today I am thanking God for:

Yay!!!

949.  Jodie and the NEW CRYSTAL RAINBOW FURBLING;

950.  The peace a new crystal furbling brings to our household;

951.  The plumber fixing our toilet for free;

952.  The storm easing in time for me to go and pick up Emma from art class.  Yes she freaked out, but she calmed down and was able to stay so I'm thankful for that.  There may have also been a suggestion that I was thankful she was elsewhere during the storm....I can't deny it....;

953.  Remembering to turn the spa back on after the power flickered off;

954.  Safety during the storm.  A tree up the road from us got hit tonight and last year a man in our street got hit.  No wonder I am not good at modelling bravery to my kids!!!


Ashlea wanted you all to see how lovely the new furbling is:

Behold it's beauty...
