I really am...

I gotta few this week which is weird for me but I am feeling more positive this week..


 I am grateful I am not a single parent. I have no family with free time to help out here and my husband is working crazy hours so the past month has been a very solo parent gig.. I have been having a few self pity days weeks but this week I had a think about the people that don't EVER have an extra set of hands. My hat is off to you, seriously.. single parents are legends

I am grateful my kids loved the gym more than me this week.. On Thursdays I ask " Do you want to go to the gym?" and if they answer "yes", we do and if "no", we don't.. well they never say "no". I am grateful they don't as I go to the best Spin Class those days... Tani smashes you physically but recharges you mentally... little pocket rocket with dreams as big as the ocean.. love it!!

I am grateful I have Em. She is lots younger than me but the more we chat the more we have the same visions and shared dreams/expectations. She helps me here and here but more than that she just makes me smile and I am oh so grateful for that..

  1. A lovely grateful. I've done a solo parenting gig a bit this year and I agree .
    My little guys loved the gym too, such a motivating reason to go when you know you get piece of mind that they aren't the kids crying .

    1. I have to drag mine out with the lure of a weekly finger bun.. once in a while they fancy a lazy day at home but it is not often and that is a good thing x

  6. I agree - there is always something to be grateful for! I just put a pic of the green satchel on my FB page, I think Ill be grateful for that when it arrives. I also agree on the single mum thing - I was one for the first 2 1/2 years of my girls life, I cried so many lonely, tired tears...it makes me appreciate my lovely partner even more now that we have a babe together x
