Thankful Thursday

What a week!  And it is still not over yet. 

Regular readers would have noticed a bit of an absence this week from yours truly.  I wish that I could say that was because I have been off galavanting around the countryside or sailing the seven seas or something interesting and fun but that is not the case.  Instead I have been furiously helping some of the kids from the girl's school interview past teachers and students in preparation for the big birthday bash next week.  Of course all of what I am doing should have been done months or at least weeks ago but as I am fast discovering organisational skills are not necessarily my strongest asset.

In between all of that I tried to enter in the NYC Flash Fiction Challenge  I say tried because ten minutes before the deadline I managed to delete my entry.  (I know well done me)  Before you try and tell me it could have been recovered I don't think that is the case.  You see I managed to discard the document before I actually saved it.  (Super well done me hey?)

Anyway moving right along as today is Thursday which means it is time to head over to Kate Says Stuff and give a bit of thanks.  So here is what I am thankful for this week.

First off the bat I want to give thanks to Sarah for selecting APL as her featured blog of the week.  Can't begin to explain how happy that made me.

I am thankful for the fact that I don't have to go to work as it means I am able to be super involved with the girl's school.  Now I know that I may at times complain more than just a little about all that I have choose to be involved with but deep down I love it and wouldn't have it any other way.

While we are talking about the school I am thankful for the fact that DD3 let me spend so much time their in the last few weeks getting done what I need to without wreaking to much havoc in the office or staffroom or where ever else we might have been.

I am thankful that Mr Taxman was particularly generous to us this year and paid in a rather timely fashion as well.  This leads me to my next thing to be thankful for which is the iPad I just bought hubs for father's day.  No really it is for him, not me at all.

I am also thankful for the fact that hubs doesn't read my blog often so I know I can safely share my recent purchase without spoiling the surprise.  If I couldn't spill the beans here I think I may well have burst with excitement.  After all we are talking an iPad 2.

Finally I must again give thanks to my wonderful husband and the fact that he has never once walked in the door and grumbled about the lack of housework I may or may not have done, or demand his dinner on the table at a set time, or any of the other ridiculous expectations that many women have to put up with.

So what are you thankful for?  Head over to
and share what you are thankful for.
