Ten Things of Thankful, Week 22/2019

Ten Things of Thankful, Week 22/2019


So I proudly join the TToT-community again. Let’s see what I can contribute:

  • Summer finally found us, so we had at least a sunny, warm weekend.
  • Thursday was a banking holiday and the shops were closed. My husband had to work, but I enjoyed the quiet day at home.
  • The most important thing I was thankful for was my birthday. I was born two months early, and back then the doctors weren’t sure I’d make it, but tadaa – here I am!
  • So many people on- and offline sent me well wishes. I am very thankful for that, this year started off very well.
  • I am thankful for all the support I get on- and offline. I wouldn’t be able to do this alone, and it’s a good thing I don’t have to!
  • On the evening of my birthday, we went to a nice restaurant (“we” meaning my parents, my husband and I. My parents in law are on holiday). I am thankful for these nice hours. It was a good way to celebrate my birthday.
  • My husband had a very stressful week and had to work full time on the banking holiday and on the weekend. I am grateful he got through that chaotic week ok.
  • Because my husband had to work, I had no car at the weekend and wasn’t able to drive to the shelter for our usual walk with our friend, her dog and Truman, the shelter dog on Saturday. But our friend came to our house with her dog and Truman, and we walked the dogs here. This was very kind of her.
  • After we walked our dogs, I took the bus and drove to the next town, where I went shopping and just enjoyed myself.
  • One of our dogs, Janet, was coughing a lot on Wednesday, and it really had me worried. But whatever it was, she was her old self on Thursday, so I could stop worrying.

  1. Hey, happy birthday! Sounds like a challenging week, but the main thing (from my perspective) is that your dog is feeling better.
    (So much scarier than when a human is ill, ’cause they can’t tell us too much about what is bothering them)
    Have a good week ahead.
    (We’re having some almost-summer weather here in New England, of late)

    1. Thanks! Exactly, we humans often are at a loss when a furry companion falls ill. But the best thing is that Janet still is well.
      Have a great week ahead as well!

  3. Busy times indeed and it’s lovely to read such positive things, Viola. Must have been a very scary time when you were born, you’re a miracle baby by the sound of it. And everyone is blessed to have you here and in their lives in some way, celebrating another birthday. I’m also glad Janet is doing okay & back to her old self! 🙂

    1. Thanks! Of course I don’t remember the stressful time after my birth, but it was probably hard for all of us. One reason more to celebrate my birthday.
      Janet is still doing well, so we are happy!

  4. Sorry I’m late in commenting; I was out-of-town for a few days and didn’t get much blogging done. Anyway, happy birthday! Two of my children were born 10 weeks early, so I understand the anxiety that can accompany premature births. I’m so glad you made it! 🙂

    That was nice of your friend to bring the dogs to you! I’m glad that Janet is feeling better.


    1. Thanks!
      Thankfully so many premature born babies make it today.
      We made so many friends through our dogs, they are connecting people. And Janet is still doing well.


  5. I always worry when anythings wrong with nitro. He has a little thing on one of his ears at the moment, I am not sure what it is but I am taking him to the vet soon to find out, it looks like nothing but I want to be sure it isnt anything serious. xox
