Small and happy (and thankful!)

Hello and happy weekend all!

Please bear with me... I may or may not have completely broken my laptop and because I'm no rich kid I have no other iPads, tablets or other means of updating I'm writing this on my phone!

As we Brits are more than aware because of Black Friday creeping into our favourite shops it was Thanksgiving this week. And while I am no Yank, I do love their tradition of being with family and thinking about being grateful for what we have. As inhabitants of countries where all our basic needs are met and we are becoming more and accepting and equal (for the most part) we have a lot to say thanks for.

Here are some things I am thankful for all year round:

1// My wonderful boyfriend, my rock, I don't know how I could get along without him. I mean I would because I'm a touch chica who don't need a man but still, it's lovely to have one as great as him.

2// My health. I feel like this is something we take for granted too much but this year has made me really really grateful to not have any health concerns or issues affecting my family or myself (touch wood).

3// My job. While I don't have a permanent role yet, I do need to be grateful that I can do what I love and get paid well (enough) for it.

4// My family and friends, I have some great circles of friends and I am so grateful for that. It's nice when you have fellow weirdos or people who get over excited about the  things as you!  In terms of my family, my parents have been through a bit of a time the last few years and I think by them not being together everyone is now closer than ever, and I never thought we'd reach this point.

5// My passions in life. This is a weird one but I was thinking about how lucky I am to be in a day and age where I can read anything I want, learn anything I want through the internet and can indulge anything I want to discover or experience through the many brilliant opportunities this world presents us. For a bookworm who loves travelling and cooking and learning about how other people live their lives the world of social media and the internet (as well as wonderful libraries) service those needs beautifully! I guess it's the teacher in me that is thankful that I always have an opportunity to learn and to grow and to develop.

I'm thankful that I'm still finding new things to be thankful for all the time.

How about you? Did you bag any Black Friday bargains?! Have you been thinking about what you're thankful for too?
