Nearly Free Groceries!

I am amazed, possibly a bit concerned but for today defiantly happy about it!
Been saving up our supermarket loyalty all year with the intent of using them for our Xmas shop. For some reason we never got round to using them, defiantly today’s blessing. This weeks shop was discounted by about 3/4, it certainly helped the purse this week.

I will question my closet devotion to supermarkets another day. Today I am enjoying it!

Being a Little Less Controlling

I hate to admit it but I am soooo stubborn and a control freak. When I get back from work I am a lot more laid back but there are something’s I just can’t let go of. Cleaning. Now I am by no means off of OCD cleaners BUT if I spend my ‘spare’ time cleaning then you make a mess I will kill you. Just pre warning you ok?! Another thing is the TV clicker. I control the Tv in our house, I can’t help it. Last night however I let go and let my very patient other half do the clicking. We watched Ice Age 3 and the Mission Impossible 3. Seen the first one already, and convinced myself I wouldn’t enjoy the second choice. But I did enjoy the whole darn lot. Bless him he was happy too, so I guess that that was day 3 of my blessing journal. X

Back to Work

Back to the grindstone. Although I wasn’t feeling as energised as I’d hoped the team at work were their usual amazing selves. Working in the voluntary sector I am constantly amazed by the generosity of people with their time.

Today I am thankful for their generosity, initiative, hard work and the great laughs we have daily.

I am also thankful for funny memories. Did you know that last year the fire brigade got called out to 1132 cases of people getting stuck/injured in public toilets? A girlfriend of mine got trapped in the loo in a bar near my work one time, and after a few glasses of vino it felt perfectly normal for me to suggest popping to work to get a screwdriver to get her out…. We laughed a lot that night! X

The Start of Joy Journal

So I am sure I’m not alone. Probably millions of us all evaluating our lives. Thinking about what we want more of in it and what we want less of.

I have seen a lot of articles about a daily journal. Suggestions for content go from a blow by blow account of the day to just a daily blessing, gratitude or mantra. I’m not really one for words so I think I’ll start off with a short one.

So my daily gratitude for January 1st 2014:

Friends- amazing how a cup of tea and a chat can really sort you out. Just what I needed new years day….
