A Grateful Heart

Giving Thanks with a Grateful Heart: for my son being safe, for friends far and wide: ( England, Swaziland and every state in the Union), for my spousal substitute Nick who makes me very happy, for my job, for paychecks that allow us to become debt free, for my health, and for my family who I always miss during the holiday season. May you too have a very thankful day.

Well Hello......

It is Sunday evening, I have a roast in the oven with delicious roast 'taters browning and crisping, the laundry is done (clean work clothes for tomorrow) and all is right with the world.

I have completed my three weeks of manager training and tomorrow start at my new store. The days are long and I get quite tired, but all in all I am enjoying myself. The only thing I am sad about is that I don't have much time for crafting or blogging. I refuse to feel guilty or stressed about it, since both are supposed to be a pleasure. At the end of the day, one can only do what one can do.

I love getting a pay check every week and am looking forward to becoming debt free. However there are a few little goodies I might just have to treat myself to. I think that once a month I might buy myself something gorgeous to remind me that life is not just all about work. I received the latest Cath Kidston brochure last week and have my eye on a couple of things.

How adorable is this bag?!

Tea would taste so marvy in a dotty mug!

Hope everyone had a restful weekend and in rejuvenated for the week ahead.

Still Here....

Just a quicky at 4.30am before I go to work.
I am alive and well and getting through my training. Next week should get easier with no more studying.
I have some ideas swirling around in my tired head and hope to get them made up next week.
I am linking to The Girl Creative today for her monthly Etsy Originals party. Go and check out all the cool shops.
