Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday with APLAs so often is the case when I sit down to blog there are around a thousand other things that I should be doing. Today some of those things involve getting ready for work, feeding children and tidying up.

None of which are really all that appealing, which I guess is why I am still sitting here. Well that and the fact that Zany is on the computer and thanks to the wonders of modern technology we are able to send each other messages. It is all a bit cute. We are co writing a story a sentence at a time.

I am so thankful for not just the equipment to be able to do such things, or even her ability to be able to type but more so just the time to be able to do it. Even if it is starting to get a little rushed as my imminent departure for work looms closer.

The past few days have been particularly tougher than the last few weeks. Even though I have not had to work full time hours, which I am incredibly thankful for, I have seen so very little of the girls. Which I am obviously not so thankful for.

As you may recall I decided to return to study this year only I forgot to organise my text book which I took as a sign to fall behind for a few weeks. This has all meant that the last few days have been a crazy cramming sessions trying to catch up on all that I missed. I so thankful that mum was able to have the girls giving me lots of time to cram in as much study as possible.

I am also thankful that so far I have managed to pass my first few assessment pieces. I would be more thankful if I had had actually completed them all but there is still time. Not much mind you but hopefully just enough.


Other thanks this week goes to Getty Images and their generosity at sharing free images with bloggers. I am particularly thankful that after a bit of tweaking I worked out how to change the coding and centre the images in my post. I always feel all kinds of impressed with myself when I manage to get HTML to do what I want it to!

Working every night this week has also meant that running has not been as easy as what I was hoping for. However I am thankful that I have managed a few early morning runs. I can't even begin to explain how great it feels to be out there again.

I am super thankful that I now know a little more about breathing while running as well.

What about you? What are you thankful for this week?
