This week I'm grateful for...

  • autumn colours on the trees outside my kitchen window
  • new playgrounds with skateparks suitable for small people
  • big bike helmets on little heads
  • lovely blog commentors
  • babies that fall asleep on shoulders at school pick up
  • broccolini
  • fresh magazines
  • the crafty section of the library
  • my mum's homemade quince jelly
  • the ability of Foxtel to tape my favourite shows so I can watch them all on Friday nights when everyone else goes to bed
  • sneaky Mills and Boon reading in the car
  • chunky crochet hooks and lovely soft wool
  • double pineapple freddo frogs from the fundraising box
  • wine (!!!)
  • the ability I now have of making things as gifts instead of buying things
  • discovering the last mini magnum in the freezer


  1. LOVE your list! Especially finding the last magnum in the freezer, this one is even better than finding a $50 note in the bottom of your handbag (which happened to me once but I have never found the last magnum)

    Oh and yes, please feel free to copy me in being grateful for 7.14pm!

  2. Two standouts for me tonight: "Big bike helmets on little heads" - oh yes!

    And... "double pineapple freddo frogs " - say what? Why have I never encountered a pineapple freddo frog? That is SO not right! I buy those Snack big family bars just to get the pineapple ones. There's a whole Freddo?!


  3. Great List!
    They make Double pineeapple freddo frogs??? I need one of those!

  4. Lovely list. Magazines, reading in the car, autumn colours, blog comments ... yep, all cherished here too!
    And certainly grateful for wine. I'm not much of a drinker but was feeling celebratory Thurs night and hit the hard stuff - two scotch and cokes later I felt like I'd dipped my head in cement! What a wuss. Next time I'm sticking with my light white wine :)

  5. Loving your list... pineapple chocolate - say no more!
    I love the Autumn leaves in my garden and the street too... so, so beautiful.


Welcome poppets! I'd love to hear what you have to say so please dont go without saying it!
