It’s that time again already – almost the weekend! Which for the majority of my readers means it’s very nearly time to not have a day off, and not have a lay in. *Smiles wryly*

It’s also the time of the week I take a moment to muse on my fortuity and count my blessings (here’s why if you missed week #1) – and today is World Gratitude Day, so all the more reason!

Here are a few more reasons I have been grateful this week:

  1. This past week I’ve finally found the nerve to trial soya. I really needed to do it because it’s so limiting to eliminate it from my diet, and I only removed it on the off-chance of it being an issue along with cow’s milk protein. Unfortunately Elfin didn’t react well, however it could have been far worse. And at least we know now. (I’m not planning to trial soya lecithin which is less likely to cause a reaction. Fingers crossed as this is the reason I can’t eat my favourite chocolate!)
  2. I walked through the shoe aisle when I left Next earlier, and kind of fell in love… Oops. This never happens to be fair, as I’m incredibly fussy. But having had a nice job this week, I decided to treat myself to a beautiful pair of ankle boots.
  3. My hubby is notoriously difficult to buy presents for, because – in his own words – ‘if I want something that badly I’ll just buy it’. So he has everything he wants. What a life, huh? Third world problems, but this does make it hard for me at Christmas. So I’m really pleased to be collaborating with a fab company for an item for my gift guide, which I think he’ll love – and I may just have a giveaway for you guys to win one too (stay tuned)!
  4. We have chosen carpet for the garage now and within a couple of weeks our extra space should be habitable! I can’t wait as the clutter in our dining room is making me anxious.
  5. Preschool really agrees with Pixie and I’ve been so incredibly proud of how well she’s doing, both there and at home. She’s been a real delight to be around – most of the time!

In addition to all of the above, I was thrilled to hear from the very brilliant Biscuiteers about collaborating for World Gratitude Day, which falls today! They offered me a beautiful tin of biscuits to gift to someone special, to let them know I’m grateful to have them in my life.

Biscuiteers World Gratitude Day

I didn’t have to think very hard about who to give them to, because this lady is very special to me. She’s somebody who I’ve spoken about many times on the blog, and I love very dearly; in every conceivable way she’s the sister I never had – minus the arguing! She’s my spa day and afternoon tea buddy (when we get the opportunity), but we’re equally content having a natter in our jammies over a bottle of wine – or just a cup of tea. And that’s why I chose this particular tin to gift her, because they perfectly sum up our special friendship:

Biscuiteers World Gratitude Day

Aren’t they spectacularly beautiful?! I’m actually quite disappointed not to be able to share as they contain dairy, but I know she will enjoy them for both of us!
