Celebrating Maxabella's 52 weeks of Grateful

Over at Village Voices this weekend, Maxabella is celebrating posting about being grateful for 2 years. Over that time there have been 52 weeks of grateful posts and she is inviting everyone who have ever linked up to join in again to celebrate.

I used to join in the linky before Maxabella took the grateful link over to Village Voices. But I decided to bite the bullet and actually check out village voices. It's not so scary over there and I think Maxabella deserves as many link ups as possible so I'm back in at least for this week. Without any further ado, here are my gratefuls.

I am grateful that we have absolutely nothing planned this weekend. This meant today I got to sleep in until almost 12. A really restful sleep. So I am also grateful for my family for leaving me alone so I could get my sleep in.

I'm also grateful for the Toy Sales. With Target, Kmart and Big W all having their sales on at the moment I have got ideas for both the children's birthdays and possibly Christmas as well. And hopefully at decent, reduced prices.

Next week, Girl Child's school is having a morning tea to thank the parent volunteers. I am grateful that I was invited and that have the time and opportunity to help out at school.

Also next week, Boy Child is getting an award at a school assembly. While he is not impressed that it will only be an effort award not an achievement award (his theory is that an achievement award means you are good at something but an effort award means you suck but you tried) I'm very grateful that he is being recognised for his work.

So that's it for me. Come and join the party.

Christmas? Wow, you are organised!

Awards are good, but it's also good when they don't go to your head. Love your son's theory, very down-to-earth :)

I love quiet weekends almost as much as I like sleep-ins! Lucky you.

I'm so grateful I don't have to buy toys anymore, but I was out with a friend and her daughters yesterday and the 7 yr old asked her mum if they could go to the Target Toy Sale because she wanted to write her list for Santa! LOL

Man, I WISH I could lie in until 12.00. I am reading this over a cuppa on a Saturday morning after my enormous lie in. I feel as though I've slept half the day away and it's only 8.00am!! LOL. I'd prefer your version ...

Love and hugs
