this saturday i'm grateful for... trips home to visit family

Saturdays are the days where our household comes to a grinding halt. (Except sleeping and eating, perhaps). And because it's the last day of the week, I often reflect on the six past days and remember all the things I'm grateful for...
  1. Short plane trips - jumping on a plane and seeing my family in just over an hour.
  2. My best friend - who loves me for who I am and is willing to 'share'.
  3. Grandparents - who are keen to babysit as much as they can while Mummy has a 'little break'.
  4. Discovering - new playgrounds.
  5. Ducks in a row - the ability to be in bed by 9:30pm three nights straight (okay, so I didn't go out as much as I could have).
  6. Seeing 50 (or so) of my closest relatives (and their offspring) in one day.
  7. My cherubs... I'm always grateful for those little lads.
This Saturday I'm Grateful For... is inspired by Maxabella Loves...
