Grateful for what I am usually not..

This week I am grateful for all the things that are usually just a bit of a time waster and sometimes even a chore.. I am grateful for.... Facebook and Twitter... there I said it.

I mean I love Facebook for connecting with new people on the business page and of course my family but as I have previously moaned.. it is a far too addictive or even demanding (well that is sorta my fault).

This week I have played confidante and had a really lovely, even if a little sad, transatlantic banter night and day with a very special person in my life who needed to chat but often doesn't.

This week I have had some really encouraging words from the DTLL likers on FB and also on this blog in response to my little dilema on Thursday

This week I have been able to follow pages on FB that I really needed some advice from... a new field that I had never thought I would need but desperately did.. 

This week I had some gorgeous new sellers contact me on Twitter

So this week I am grateful  for something I am usually not.. Social networking has been nothing like a waste of precious time that could be spent reading or playing with my kids, it has been enriching and postitive so thanks Mr Zuckerberg and Mr Dorsey. You have done me proud xx

* oh did you enter the giveaway yet?


  1. I know what you mean, sometimes I just feel weighed down by social media, but for the most part it really has enriched my life so much! I'm thankful for it too :)

  2. I second everything Naomi said above and I will add that it's refreshing to see a post like this one, Tessa.

    I'm hoping this means you're feeling a bit more like yourself after the mess of Thursday. x

  3. I love Facebook and Twitter for their pros and tend to ignore the cons. I'm so glad you had a good week.

  4. It's all in the way you use it. I love using it to connect with distant friends, like you did. Makes the world tiny.

  5. It’s actually a nice and useful piece of post. I am glad that you simply shared this with us. Thanks!

  6. While we lose many hours to these beasts they also give us some amazing connections that we wouldn't have otherwise had. I'm glad that you're loving the beasts this week :)


Leave me a love note why don't you.. it makes me feel oh so spesh ...
