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!
♥ Over-time at work. I think every person I work with would kill me for saying this, but decorating Christmas trees is fun! I’m sure I’ll get a little tired of doing it about a month or so from now, but there’s something wonderful about fluffing branches and picking decorations and tying them on the trees. If nothing else, it’s marvellous to be out of the office and nattering about rubbish (and seeing how well everybody teams up to get the job done, too!).
♥ Finishing my self-assessment tax (!!). ‘Phew’ doesn’t even cover it.
♥ Getting a lift into work with some colleagues – what a difference being a passenger makes! Not having to drive along the M25 is like a special kind of heaven… Also, their banter is fantastic and so are they.
♥ Malin and I attacked our living room at the weekend and uncovered another surprise (our house is full of surprises). Our carpet (this floral explosion) was laying atop some brown tiles which have cleaned up nicely (photos to follow)! As a result, we’ve started planning wallpaper and paint, and have even ordered a brand new blind. It’s already looking heaps better (and extraordinarily less flowery!).
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!
