Having had three weeks off, with an idea for a story buzzing in my head, I'm a little unsure where to start back in blogging - or a little unmotivated, to be honest.

I'm lucky to have travelled to an amazing corner of the country, I'm grateful that the whale sharks came out to play on the day we went out to swim with them - and scored not one but two different ones.

I'm glad my eldest and doggie that stayed home were fine.

I'm grateful our broken washing machine is getting replaced today as all the trips to the laundromat were killing me (I did try to get it repaired but that appears to be a lost cause).

I'm grateful to have time to breathe momentarily, before the next onslaught of difficulties.

What are you grateful for?

Linking with #Lifethisweek and #Nanahood


  1. I'm grateful that I've got the time and money to be able to go and spend some time with mum in the motherland. I'm not especially feeling grateful about the flying time but the lounge access will definitely take the edge off my nerves! Pleased you had happy holidays!

    1. That is indeed something to be grateful for. Those moments are worth everything.

  2. Glad you had a good holiday. I'm grateful everyone in my family is healthy and August weather has been glorious so far.#lifethisweek

  3. I'm grateful for the ability to go for a steep uphill, then down hill, 3 hour hike yesterday and not feel too sore today. Hope the week picks up for you :) I love the pics of the whales on Insta, so fortunate to see them!! #lifethisweek

  4. Yes to the new washing machine! Having that new one up and running will be a joy you can't put a price on.

  5. Ooh that's awesome re a story idea! Taking a moment to breath and be is always good. Hope you have a great week. I am currently grateful for wonderful friends in my life

  6. Blogging has definitely taken a back seat for me in recent times. Perhaps take a break and give that story time to percolate? Here's hoping there aren't too many diffculties ahead for you!

  7. Bit sorry you have had some really difficult times. Loved your holiday snaps. You always manage to take me somewhere interesting.

    Thank you for linking up for Life This Week. Next week's optional prompt is 32/51 What Makes You Laugh? 12/8/19. Hope to see you there too! Denyse.
