Last week I caught a snippet of the tv programme Loose Women, not a programme I watch regular, but it happened to be on and they were talking about David Cameron's New Year speech and the fact that 2012 is going to be a tough year. Sally Lyndsay made a comment, saying that we need to thankful for and appreciate the smaller things of life and that way we will stay positive. Carol McGiffen then said she felt thankful after landing at Heathrow and there was no queue at passport control.
During my thoughful daily dog walks, I dwelled on this conversation and after mulling it over, I found I agreed with her, Yes, we should be thankful for the simple pleasures of life and the small achievements we make!
This is what I am Thankful for this week..........
The weather has been so mild and very Spring like, which has mean't I have been able to hang the washing out most days, and although still damp afterwards, it has mean't not having to waste money using the tumble dryer!
This one is also weather related. The mild weather also means we haven't had to use our oil heating as much as normal, and also we still have a half load of logs left, whereas this time last year, we were desperately awaiting a new load!
and lastly I am Thankful we have not got carried away this Christmas and over spent!
2012 is going to be tough, which means it is going to be a year of being Thankful for what we do have and the small simple pleasures of life..........
What are you Thankful for this week???
