Thankful Thursday - The Little Things Edition

Today's Thankful Thursday is brought to you by a whole bunch of little things.

Little things like the way Mr Awesome had two days off work to help care for poorly little people. The fact that the bug which caused Miss Two to start vomiting lasted precisely 24 hours is also something to be thankful for. As is the way that I never got around to donating all the excess sheets I seemed to somehow accumulate. There is no such thing as excess sheets when you have a vomiting two year old on your hands.

The way Miss Two appears to have passed said bug onto Miss Six though is possibly not something I am thankful for. Having said that though I am thankful that so far everyone else seems spared.

I am also thankful for the recent opportunity I had to chat with two mothers of Olympic champions. Which in case you missed can be found here and here. There are actually a whole heap of thanks involved we this one. Including being thankful that the PR company found me and then all the lovely compliments received for both the articles. It has give me hope that perhaps this whole writing dream is not such a half baked idea after all. The fact that I received no payment or giveaway for my efforts is totally irrelevant. While they would have been nice just being given a go was more than awesome.

Part of the reason behind the Olympic mums interviews was to do with a Thank You Mum campaign being run by P&G. Which leads me to my next port of thanks, my mum. Like most mothers she gets a bit of a raw deal at times. Never enough thanks, taken for granted and all the rest of it. Well this week I am thankful for the lovely fruit cake she made me, the gorgeous clothes she made for the girls and the sleepovers she has given the girls this week which allowed lots of one on one time for everyone.

Even though the second week of the school holidays are drawing to an end I am thankful that there are still two more weeks to go. Which is great because there are still so many things we wanted to do. These first two weeks seem to have flown by.

Finally I want to give thanks for all the moments of peace and quiet I have been able to steal of late. Despite all the happenings there have still been many a time (more than expected that's for sure), where I have found myself enjoying a moment or ten to myself for which I am more than thankful for.

What about you? What do you have to be thankful for this Thursday?
