This week has been a strange one (and hasn't it gone by so quickly) but I still have things to be grateful for.
The thought of tomorrow when I shall be spending time in Le Touquet with friends. Looking forward to a nice lunch and have my map with all the bookshops marked on it. We set off at 06:20 so I'll be up at 05:00.
My DS is home again along with his girlfriend Vicky - this is the first time we've met her. Thanks to her for driving him (and ALL his gear - incl. washing) home. She's going home to Kent tomorrow.
My fellow dog walkers - Max and I come across some lovely people during our walks and, of course, their dogs - very playful too most of them - so Max gets plenty of exercise and I get to have a natter.
The Holland and Spain football teams who have given me the final I wanted (after we went out). Best of luck to both teams - they'll be pleased to know I'm not using my special powers this time. For those of you who don't know...my special power is putting the mockers on any team I support (sorry Germany and Uruguay!).
I'm sure there's more but that's not a bad list of things to be thankful for.
