“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.” — Buddha
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!
♥ Spending the night at my ma’s; I ate my favourite dinner, as well as chocolate cake and wine! I also got to see my lovely cats Poppy and Squirrel.
♥ Seeing my wonderful friend Holly on Tuesday evening when I stayed at my ma’s! We watched The Great British Bake Off whilst drinking wine, and then watched some Harry Potter whilst eating chocolate cake. Omnom!
♥ Buying a new desk and kitchen worktop at the weekend. My desk? It’s huge. Our kitchen? It has two functioning worktops!
♥ Bellowhead’s new album Broadside, which I received in the post late last week. It’s absolutely wonderful and just what I needed! As I usually find with Bellowhead records, I wasn’t all that keen on my first listen (sorry guys!) but every single song has grown on me with every listen and now I adore them all. My favourites are: Roll the Woodpile Down; Black Beetle Pies; Dockside Rant / Sailing on the Tide; The Wife of Usher’s Well and Lillibulero.
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!
