Gratitude Through Disaster

This is how our house looks right now...

It could seem like I've not much to be grateful for, but I beg to differ. It turns out that in times of need the reasons to be grateful shine through...

  • A good insurance policy
  • Free cocktails from a sympathetic hotel
  • Cooked breakfasts
  • Kind friends
  • Offers of assistance
  • Supportive words
  • Late summer sun
  • A good builder 
  • A tidy builder
  • The offer of washing and ironing
  • Children who take things in thier stride
  • A brilliant laundry service
  • Tea from a pot
  • School lunches that the kids enjoy
  • Church playgroup

  2. Oh my goodness! What an awful thing to come back from holiday to! I'm glad your insurance company is sorting this out for you though, and you are finding the positives that come from such a stressful situation. x
