I’m Grateful for the Little Things in Life...

Sometimes things happen in life that make you sit back and re-evaluate all the silly little things that you worry and stress about. If the last few weeks have taught me anything it’s to not take anyone or anything for granted. It has been a worrying time here in the last few weeks and I can honestly say that I am ready for half term and a few lazy days over the next few weeks.

So where do I start…

You may remember me mentioning that my best friend was due a baby in September. Well, I’m pleased to say that the little lady has arrived. She doesn’t do things by half though and she made her appearance in a dramatic fashion and is still in hospital now. In fact, she has done a tour of hospitals and has had the pleasure of staying in three different ones so far. She is getting better thanks to our wonderful NHS but has a little while to go before she can go home but we are hoping it will be soon. She has finally had her first cuddles with her mummy this week and I’m not going to lie Auntie Louise has shed a few tears over the last few weeks. Bradford Neonatal Unit has and continues to look after my friend, her partner and baby so well and those of us closest to my friend are so very grateful for what they have done, we can never thank them enough so much so one of my friend’s cousins has decided to raise money for the neonatal unit. If you’d like to help too you can do so by visiting her donation page – she is going to be doing a Santa fun run in December. We’ve already donated but plan to do more fundraising as and when we can.

Last week it was my birthday, everyone was either at school or work so for me it was like every other day to be fair, though I’ve never been one to celebrate. I was treated to a new Xbox controller and my favourite Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume, oh and we had cake so all in all it wasn’t such a bad day.

I also learnt that a very close friend is in hospital and she might be there for some time. Luckily we can talk / video chat as much as we want (and boy do we talk a lot) and we have resumed our watch parties so that will help break up her days whilst she focuses on getting better. I mentioned the other day that I was the yin to her yang as she loves horror, scary and intense things and I’m all happy ever afters, rom coms and comedy. We’re currently watching Squid Games (not my choice I might add) and neither of us really know what to make of it, next on the watchlist is Hocus Pocus (that’s about as scary as I get) and then we are on to the festive feel-good films and series roll on all the happiness and light I say.

On a much brighter note, I am looking forward to having a clear out ready for winter and dare I say it Christmas. I’m also going to be sorting my wardrobes out and packing away my denim shorts and summery white dresses until next year when they will make their return. In their place, I will be buying lots of jumper dresses. I’ve already got three from Femmeluxe – two (one is a rusty red and the other a stone colour) which will be perfect to wear with tights and my boots and another which is a black hoody dress which will be perfect for lazy days on the sofa. It’s so comfy I can see it becoming one of my favourite items of clothing.

I’ve been busy working behind the scenes on my Christmas gift guides and I can’t wait to show you them as I have some pretty cool gift ideas to share with you all. But you’ll have to wait a few more weeks for that. Next week I also have a giveaway going live where you’ll be able to grab yourself a pair of tickets to the home and renovation show.

Have you any plans for the coming weeks if so I’d love to hear about them

  1. Humans are never grateful for the little things. But you are an exceptional case. I am so happy that still people like you are left. I really would appreciate it if you suggested one thing to me. I Need Help With My Assignment at lower rates, and for that, I want you to suggest some good academic writers to me. If you do so, then I’ll really be grateful to you. Thanks.
