Today I’m grateful for:
- Sunshine, it’s a beautiful day here and the blue sky and sunshine is making me so happy.
- Having recently moved to a new country and my husband still in the UK it can get a tad lonely during the day, so I am grateful to be making new friends who I am meeting for tea and cake today.
- a dishwasher, when we first moved in to the apartment it had no dishwasher, I was very much reminded of my childhood, however I much prefer a dishwasher in my adulthood ;)

Hey pickles, WhatsApp is fab, it makes me feel really connected. So sad for all their families.

Today I am grateful:
- that when we first moved abroad I told the new friends we made that I don’t drink. We are out at a party tonight and I have absolutely no peer pressure to drink as to my new friends not drinking is my norm.
- that my sister in law has postponed her trip to see us, it’s only by a few weeks but we were going to be a tad over crowded for Xmas, and now we’re not.
- that I now have the energy and patience to self study the Portuguese language until my next course starts ;)?

Grateful to be home. Not so grateful to be ill. I don't want to jinx things by saying grateful my mother is getting better. It's anyone's guess at 91. Hopeful?

I'm glad you've got company Moira. Hope you don't feel too rough today.

I'm grateful for a fabulous evening at the opera yesterday.

I'm home now so my sister's drinks cabinet isn't a temptation, I only drank (far too much) on Thursday, even slept well there. Glad you enjoyed the opera, hoping to go one time with my nephew, neither of us have ever been, try anything once. ;)?

Grateful to be home, sad/guilty, Tilly's pulling her fur out again from the stress of being home alone. I've changed her flea collar, hopefully she'll be ok now. :mrgreen:
