Gratitude Journal #7

Carpet Cleaner
My darling little pup has been a bit of a bugger again, eating the cat litter and giving himself diarrhoea!  I'm very thankful this week for the carpet cleaner! 

Last week I had the opticians and I'm a little disappointed that I've now got to wear glasses "most of the time".  I collect my new ones shortly and in the meantime, I've been wearing my old ones to get used to having them on.  Previously I was told to wear them for driving so its felt a bit of a change but I'm glad I've started wearing them as its amazing the difference its made to me!

T's Teacher
I haven't shared it here but we've been having a challenging time with T recently.  Last week we had a parent's meeting and I raised some of the issues with her teacher, who doesn't have the same issues at school!  Despite that, she was really helpful and made some suggestions to help us solve them.  Its so good to have a teacher that really listens and helps and is proactive.  One of the things I wanted to discuss with her was T's speech, she struggles to correctly say some letters. The teacher was already on it and told me that they were already working with her twice a week (without T realising) to help improve it.

I'm enjoying work at the moment. I'm working with someone new after quite a long time of being on my own in the office and we get on really well together. She does the marketing and I do the social media so we work quite closely together. Another colleague said how well we're working together and how our ideas are coming together and that's really nice to hear. Its good being able to go in to work and have someone talking to me and having a laugh whilst we work. My previous colleague would often sit with his headphones on and not say much, which was hard work and made any conversations near impossible.


  1. Nice when you enjoy your company at work!! Lovely. #TwinklyTuesday

  2. I work in a really busy office so I know appreciate the value of having someone to talk to. Glad you have got some company. x #TwinklyTuesday

  3. Such a good week if your vision has improved! It's amazing the difference that new glasses can make, you realise how much you've been just managing with blurred sight! And always good to have someone fun in the office #TwinklyTuesday

  4. Oh goodness your pup sounds quite a challenge at the moment. Well done carpet cleaner #TwinklyTuesday

  8. lots of lovely reasons to be happy and thankful. Glasses are fine and if you need them you need them. I felt quite envious of your last point - I need a new challenge. I miss working out in the world! #TwinklyTuesday

  9. One of the things I miss most about being at home is the work 'company' just the chit chat and giggles that get you through the day!! #TwinklyTuesday

  10. Luckily I don't have carpets in my house as my husband and youngest daughter suffer from allergies but I hear you on the carpet cleaning service - such a great resource. Glad you enjoying work and that you and your new colleague work well together #TwinklyTuesday
