Things I Love Thursday is an idea created by the inimitable Gala Darling. In 2007 she began creating a list every Thursday, sharing links, people and experiences that she had fallen in love with that week. All over the internet people the idea was passed around: everyone loved the concept of celebrating appreciation and thankfulness together and began creating their own lists… This is mine!
♥ I got to leave the office one of the days this week to go out on a Christmas installation – with live trees! It was at a really fun office in London, and I got to spend the day with some lovely people, so that was great (though extremely tiring).
♥ Buying Christmas gifts! I love to buy gifts, and have lots of fun looking for fun things. Normally, I have my Christmas gift shopping sorted rather early on, but this year I only started in November (!) so I’ve got a fair bit left to do. Eep!
♥ Eating saffron buns (Malin-made). I don’t need to go into detail there, right? Right! Omnomnom…
♥ Netflix/BBC iPlayer. They’ve been keeping me mildly sane when I come home from the rather long days I’ve been working: I’ve had a cold/cough/winter virus for the past two weeks (including loss of hearing, balance, spacial awareness…), which means I’ve not had much energy left for anything else when I get home from work. Hurrah for girlie films and mystery dramas!
Do you write a Things I Love Thursday or gratitude list? If not, what would you write on it this week? If so, please share it with me!
