Thankful Friday

Posted: 16 April 2010 in Thankful Friday

I can’t believe it is Friday already! This week has gone quickly.

Today I am particularly thankful for the water board who took responsibility for the blocked drain at the front of our house. We’ve had the pipes backing up for the last 2 days and it was not a pretty sight. Without going into too much detail it was a health hazard. Still, it is all sorted now and we can breathe easy once more!

I am also thankful for our church £1 sale. It is an annual event and it happens tomorrow. It has made us go round the house with a bin bag and clear out all the stuff that is no longer needed. You know what they say… one man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure! I’m sure tomorrow we will go and buy a whole load more junk but it’s all good fun!

For getting to see my best friend on Sunday. It was so lovely to see her.

For my sister passing her driving test. It was her 4th attempt and I am so thrilled for her.

For Anthony starting his new job.

For a plastic storage tub that Katie spent ages playing in this morning!

For getting funding for another Open University course. Even without being on full benefits I qualify since Anthonys new job is low paid. I start a short course on web design on May 1st.

For going to 2 friends houses this week for a cup of tea and a natter.

For the UK benefit system. Yet again we have survived a period of time on benefits. Without the system we would have been in serious trouble. We are a very lucky nation.

Enjoy your weekends everyone.
