Thankful for my time as host

Thankful Thursday with A Parenting Life Johnny and Kenny are taking turns at singing their soul soothing songs in the background. It feels like forever since I have heard nothing but their gentle voices. They have the most amazing way of calming and centring my inner being. Everything currently feels right with the world regardless of what reality really says.

For eight wonderful months now I have had the pleasure of hosting Thankful Thursday. As I mentioned in my first post as host it in so many ways feels like a dream come true.

I have been sharing my gratitude in one shape or form on this blog this 2011, which was pretty much about the same time that I started to blog on a regular basis. I do honestly believe that taking the time to look for things to be thankful for makes you a happier person.


Next month our lives are going to be turned upside down. In a good way mind you. In fact in a we have been hoping and planning for this for quite some time kind of way actually. We will finally be hitting the road and beginning #ouradventureofalifetime. Where we pack up all our worldly possessions jump in the car and drive off into the sunset to explore this great land of ours. An opportunity I am all kinds of thankful for.

However since we plan on heading to some of the more remote areas this country has to offer there is a relatively large chance that there will be many an occasion where we don't have internet coverage. Which as you can imagine would make hosting a weekly link up rather tricky. Especially if you are a last minute Lucy such as myself and rarely have post written and scheduled in advance.

So this will be my last week of hosting Thankful Thursday.

I know that I am still in the land of internet for at least the next month but there is just so much that still needs to be done I am trying to relieve myself of as many pressures as possible. Not that hosting is a pressure, but I don't like not making it round to all those who join in and I just know computer time is going to limited while we do the final packing and preparing.

Never fear though I have found a fabulous new host who will be taking over as of next week.

She is a fellow blogger and regular thanker that has truly embraced the art of being thankful and I just know she will be a fantastic host. Though you are going to have to click the link to find out who she is! I am so thankful that she agreed to take this on.

So what else am I thankful for this week?

- being given an extension for my assignment
- my mum having Teapot so I can have some chance of actually getting my assignment done
- all the beautiful comments left on my whingey whiney post the other day
- being able to book Zany a birthday party at a play centre with only a week's notice
- finding a brand new only used for a few hours little Macbook Air on Gumtree at a brilliant price
- having the money to get said Macbook
- Mr Awesome helping out with the cooking and cleaning as much as he does
- coffee
- having a few days off work
- all the beautiful bloggers that each week joined in with this little old linky and made me feel all kinds of special

Now you,

and don't forget to head here next week to share your thanks
