5 {gratefuls} on Friday

So, I know it's 5 on Friday, but I've been doing gratitude week this week and my list is a bit longer....In case you are a real stickler for rules, I have put my top 5 first so you can just stop reading after those ones ;).

1.  Grateful for my family
2.  Grateful for our health
3.  Grateful for 13 years with my lovely husband (Tuesday was our wedding anniversary).
4.  Grateful for spending time with friends
5.  Grateful for our central heating - it's been cold!

and then in no particular order, a bunch of other stuff:

grateful for a child who loves life, loves school and embraces everything as an exciting new adventure
grateful for time to spend on my photography and my blog
grateful for my daughter's love of and fascination with nature.  Birds are the current favourite with our new bird feeder.
grateful for the amazing autumn colours we are currently enjoying
grateful for blue sky and sunshine. :)
grateful for a friend who took time out to show me her favourite juices and let me play with her juicer.
grateful for a day off school due to local elections.  Felt very illicit.
grateful for the atmosphere of calm in my home at the minute (thank you Classic FM and scented candles!)
grateful I found a set of 8 champagne saucers at the charity shop - have wanted some for years now!
grateful for an evening with friends, crafting and chatting.
grateful for some new great series starting on TV (sad I know, but I do like a nice cosy evening in in front of the telly!)
grateful for this community that I'm part of.
grateful for this prompt getting me back on track with my gratitude journal.

Thank you, Michelle, for hosting gratitude week.  It was just the motivation I needed.

Happy Friday. :)
