It is Wednesday already and there are just 12 days before the schools go back. And a week before I see that consultant. The summer is disappearing rapidly. I know I have spoken often about spending the summer on the couch and how frustrating it is, but yesterday I looked at my son, as he lounged in a chair and chatted to me, and I thought....this is a gift. If I had been mobile, I would have been doing things and whizzing about, and these times would have been rare. And it has also been a time when my closest friends have been sitting there too, chatting, laughing, and sharing their days with me. So there is always something to be thankful for.
Diana arranged for a cake to be delivered to celebrate David's results, and on Sunday, a little man from Tesco rang the doorbell and handed over a Dr Who cake to him. He was delighted. She was less than impressed with my offering of chocolate biscuits. Internet shopping is a wonderful thing indeed!
So here are a few things I am thankful for today:
- Thoughtful children (all 3 of them)
- Friends who pop in
- A kettle which works
- Great books to read (that book I ordered months ago has finally arrived!)
