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!
♥ Our Christmas tree! I got a live tree from work, as well as a set of lights and a box full of decorations (score!). Laurence, Malin and I decorated it on Monday, and it’s now twinkling in our living room, looking festive and cheery (see the above photo!).
♥ Which leads me to… Anticipation of Christmas! It’s not Christmas day itself I’m thrilled about (though I can’t wait for the food, if I’m honest) but more the time off of work: a whole week without driving on the M25 (!), answering the phone (!), inputting data (!), doing stock-takes (!) … You get the picture, yeah? Yipee!
♥ Having really, nearly finished my Christmas shopping. I’ve got five gifts left to get, and that is a serious load off of my mind. I’ve just got to wait for all of the parcels to arrive now!
♥ Getting yummy gifts at work – I’ve got a chocolate hamper and a bottle of wine, both of which I’m tucking into as a type. Yum.
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!
