Thankful

photo from google
I know we don't celebrate Thanksgiving this side of the pond. But would it not do everybody good to pause and reflect on what we are thankful for?
I am thankful that my boys are healthy and happy, that I have a mostly fabulous husband who works very very hard to provide for us all, and for my wonderful friends - in real life and blogland!
And before you all reach for a bucket ;)
I'm thankful for Yankee candles....fairy lights.....toasty warm ugg boots....gingerbread latte....and Amazon (couldn't have finished my christmas shopping without you!!)
Its nearly the start of advent, THE calendar will get the big reveal at the weekend, and I really need to crack on with my christmas crafting...but first, I have a night in with the girls to cook for and a 12 year old's birthday to belatedly celebrate, school and sharing him with his father has got in the way so we are pausing his birthday and restarting it on Saturday!!!

Have you smelt the Be Thankful yankee candle? I have it burning at the moment and it's wonderful. I made my sister buy it yesterday

Did you say you've finished your Christmas shopping??? Surely not! Oh golly, now I'm really in a flap.

How are you anyway Claire? Hope your boys are all well and getting excited about Christmas.

I've only just started my Christmas shopping and when I ask the kids what they wanted they didn't know!

I know what you mean about Ally loosing something at the end... I have the whole 5 series but the 5th just isn't as good. I think it's probably because they planned the happy ending and that didn't work out so they just muddled along.
