Monday’s Grateful List 

Today I am grateful for the amazing weekend I have just had.

Today I am grateful that we were able to go  to the Head of the River. The Head of the River is the culmination for the rowing season and it is held at Kawana each year. There are 1o girls schools involved. Lucy was rowing in the Open Third Eight. It was a very exciting race. The girls have been very consistent the whole season coming second or third in each race. They came second on Saturday and reduced the margin between first and second to the smallest margin all season for their race. It was only five seconds difference between first and second.

Today I am grateful that Lucy was safe after going to a party to celebrate the end of the season. It was in a underage venue and I am very very glad it was well supervised and she is safe. 

Today I am grateful for being able to share my lovely friend Kylie’s surprise 49th birthday. She didn’t want a 50th so her husband organized a surprise 49th. If anyone knows me I am not good at keeping secrets but I didn’t spoil the surprise! it was a lovely party with special friends.

Today I am grateful that on Sunday morning Nicholas ran The Bridge to Brisbane. It is a 10km race over a number of Bridges in Brisbane. Nicholas did it in 46 minutes. I am so proud of him.

Today I am grateful that Sunday afternoon we were able to share a very special afternoon with some cycling friends. My friends Theresa and Mark got married in New Farm Park. They looked beautiful, the setting was glorious, the food delicious, the company fun, the music groovy and the amount of love in the air amazing. I am so glad we were invited and able to share in their special day.

Today I am grateful that My girls prepared a delicious Italian feast for Nicholas’s birthday on Sunday afternoon. NIcholas turned 20 on Saturday and we celebrated last night. We had pizza and birthday cake with delicious chocolate dipped strawberries. 

Wow ! What a full weekend. I am grateful last night I had a very good sleep and I am almost ready to face the week. 

This is how I feel today……

    Pleased that you are having such lovely experiences. I wish I could go back to sleep but have given up at 5 am. Never mind we are promised lovely weather today so may as well get the house in order before Maureen needs that first cup of tea of the day.
