The decorations are packed away for another year. Instead of resolutions I thought I would list a few things that I am both grateful and thankful for. This is by no means an exhaustive list and it goes without saying how important my family is to me. My list includes being lucky enough, in these difficult times, to have stimulating employment along with some wonderful colleagues who can make a Monday morning worthwhile. (I reserve the right to review this thought at 6.30 am tomorrow, after two weeks off work). Employment enables me to have a roof over my head, warmth, and plenty to eat, which many in this world do not benefit from. I am also supremely grateful to have access to clean water with a means to bathe at will, heat I can do without but no heated water and I am positively crazy. But most of all with a predominantly female family I am truly grateful that the education of women and girls is not an anathema in this country.
So dear readers what are you grateful for?
Have a wonderful week xxx
