Today I am thankful...

This week I have many things to be thankful for...

  • U2's new business that opened its doors today
  • Goofy got a spot at MiniMe's old preschool for next year
  • MiniMe got an award at school for being 'brilliant this week' (not quite sure how you qualify for it). 
  • the organ I found on the side of the road (i have often joked that the only way out girls will go to a private school is if they get the organ scholarship to the local private girls school - how many people know how to play the organ these days? Surely there can not be too much competition. I feel we are slightly ahead in my plan now that we own an organ that sort of works!)
  • the offer of a research job at my old university (even if it isn't practical to take it at this point in my life it was nice to be offered)
  • going out to dinner with friends tonight
  • the warm weather which lifts everyones mood
  • a free weekend to do with as we please
  • the word benign and that the oncologist used it today to describe my breast!


  1. So much awesomeness! Go U2!

    I am particularly cuffed about the organ - that Scholarship is theirs for the taking now :) and of course the results of your ultrasound.

  2. You must link up your thankful post with my Saturday Grateful linky on my blog. It's a great way for others to stop over and see what you're up to!

    Now, the organ scholarship is a great idea, but (and this is a little known fact) I played the organ for years and years... my mother loves it and I felt compelled to make her happy. To this day, the sound of an organ gives me hot flushes of anxiety and recoil. Perhaps that's the reason why I slipped away from mass attendance? Well, that's my story and I'm sticking with it!

    Glad you got the preschool placement and, happy day, being brilliant isn't something you do, it's something you are!!! x
