The weather is cold, grey and lashing down with rain. The sort of rain that bites your skin, where the sting is still felt an hour after you get in.
Today we walked in this weather, round some fields and a park to stay out of he house whilst the carpenter fitted a bannister. BB and I were wrapped up so we looked like a wading marshmallow if you spotted us from the distance.
But even though it was horrid outside, I’m so thankful. I’m thankful to be out breathing in the fresh, damp air, showing my daughter squirrels, pointing out trees. I’m thankful to be spending the day with someone I love and not in an office with people I tolerate.
I’m thankful I’ve got another year off with her before I go back to university and embark on a complete career change.
I’m thankful for the warm, cosy cuddles we shared when we got in. That our house was warm. That we can afford some home improvements.
What are you thankful for today?
