Thankfulness - Day 9

Today I am thankful for:

- the first day of the first cricket test of the season;

- lunch with a mum 'in the know';

- that the random jolt of dizziness that threatened to throw me off my chair at lunch didn't turn into a full blown spinning attack;

- especially thankful as I had to drive down the M2 to get home;

- Cadbury Rocky Road chocolate;

- the listening ear of a friend who has known me for a very long time;

- knitting progress - ONE finished square!  At the rate I'm going this blanket might actually get finished within the decade;

- the anticipation of waiting for the home ice cream man - who very cannily just happens to appear in our street at 3:30 on a Friday afternoon - just when all the kids have arrived home from school;

- a generous friend of Carolin's who paid our electricity bill;

- and this man - Dr Bill Kitchen - whose obituary I read today.  It states:  By his work he touched a large number of people who never even met him; many thousands of prematurely born Australians have him to thank for their current health and indeed their lives. He leaves a huge legacy.  Even though I never met this man I am thankful for people like him and their contribution to modern medicine which has had a direct impact on my family.

What are you thankful for today?

Great pic - anticipation unlimited!
Only one big thankful for today:
I had to drop my car off for a service this morning. Walked to closest station to find NO wallet. Luckily had $10 stashed away for emergencies like this so could buy return train ticket. Rang service place from wallet in car. Service was going to cost $1,250 (new brake drums, new tyres, new windscreen wipers, etc. etc.). I had visions of car being held to ransom for days till I could get my credit card replaced! Had to do a few urgent things at work but got home around 2:30 and there was my wallet sitting on the table as large as life! So thankful!!!
