This week I’m grateful for:

Locksmiths and neighbours – after a busy day in the park celebrating Alisi’s first birthday we found that we’d locked ourselves out of our apartment. Thank goodness a neighbour called a locksmith who got us back inside in no time.

Australia Day – yay for a public holiday on Wednesday! It was nice to have a break in the middle of my first week back at work after a year on maternity leave.

This week I’m grateful for:

Online html tutorials – Aarrgh! It took me so long to create the table in this post. But I finally got it looking OK after much googling.

Daycare – did I say that?!? With Alisi having a week of settling in to daycare before I start work, I’ve actually had some extended “me” time this week!

This Saturday I’m grateful for:

Jacarandas – they’re all blooming beautifully in Sydney right now. I love their purple trumpets.

My grandmother – who celebrated her 91st birthday this week.

Our cleaners – an indulgence I know, but it’s oh so nice not to have to worry about the vacuuming and dusting.

Swimming lessons – Alisi had her first swimming lesson this week and had a ball. She also had a nice long nap afterwards!

This Saturday I’m grateful for:

Peanut butter – gotta love it on hot buttered toast.

Good health – having just recovered from my first full-on cold as a Mummy I’ve come to the realisation that all new mothers come to…your kids don’t give you sick leave!

Massages – first massage in over 18 months…for an hour…and with no baby in earshot…aaaaaah

Alisi’s Daddy – who went and did all the grocery shopping for me while I was sick. And he managed to get most of it right.

Alisi – who makes me laugh every day.
