Thankful for little things

Thankful Thursday with A Parenting Life Without a doubt my first round of thanks today goes to those rather awesome bloggers who have not only joined in with Thankful Thursday but also added my little button to their blog or post. I know it is only a little thing but every little thing is someone else's big thing. Or something like that.

Seriously though, support via the interwebs is a pretty amazing thing and I know that it is something so many of us are thankful for. Speaking of support, bloggers and new things, one of my regular thanker's has a new series thing launching tomorrow. It is about child led days and going with the flow of what they want to do. Bound to be inspirational I am sure.

It is currently 4:06 Thursday morning. I am thankful in some ways that I made myself go to bed with the children at quarter to nine last night. Which I know was late for them and early for me but there is a reason or two for that you see.

We had been out to dinner with a friend who is leaving town. I am thankful that the rain only came long enough to wet the seats and cool our outdoor venue down. We went to The Wharf, a local favourite of many who live here. Actually it is pretty popular with visitors as well and provides great photo opportunities. It is all fenced in some areas so children can run around while their parents sit around and chatter. I am pretty thankful that our friend called shotgun on paying. While we could afford to pay, it is obviously wonderful not too. It also meant that because I no longer had to pay for dinner I could spend a bit more on the grog treat myself to a little drink. And by that I mean two black label vodka ice. 

During the drive in, Mr A, who I may or may not think at times drives like a maniac, had a near miss with car waiting at a round about he was approaching.  So much so he made a noise as he slammed his brakes on. In doing so causing me to look up from my phone only to then make my own noise as I saw our car hurtling towards another. I am thankful it was only in my imagination we were hurtling

He then began to carry on about how my fear of his driving was uncalled for and I decided I couldn't get to the bar quick enough.

Anyway back to my point because it is now 4.25 and I have suddenly got the urge to sleep. I also can not believe that in nineteen minutes I only wrote two lousy paragraphs. Emphasis on the word lousy as well. Grrrrr It is actually now 4.37 and there are obviously more than two paragraphs. 

I am now just thankful if by some chance you are still actually reading this.

There really is so much more I want give my thanks for, only I am thinking that now is not the time. You know on account of it being 4.39 in the morning and all. I have been up for two hours and if I duck off now I can fit in that same amount in sleep. I will be back though I promise.

Thanks again for joining in and sharing the comment love.
