Showin' Some Gratitude #3

Well, with today being Blue Monday (although actually it's been the least despressing, non rainy day we've had in ages here...) it's more important than ever that we shake off the cobwebs of cynicism and cast away the gauntlets of gloom... what? I read the Hobbit recently, you don't like the new writing style? Hmm. Point taken.

Anyway, As January drags on forever, and ever (and ever and ever) it can become increasingly difficult to remain chipper, but still I shall carry on in my efforts - this week I am grateful for:

NUMBER ONE// FOR CATS WHO "HELP" ME

I can't imagine how horrifically productive my life would be if I didn't have cats. Could you imagine how much earlier I'd get out of bed without them cuddled into me? Can you picture how many tasks I'd actually have to complete without them sitting on the paper/clothes/kitchen counter half way through. Perish the thought. Life, no matter how much calmer, without my fur babies would be awful.

NUMBER TWO// FOR TEA (HAVE I ALREADY DONE THAT ONE? IS IT A BIT WORRYING THAT AT WEEK THREE I'VE ALREADY LOST TRACK..)

Is there anything in life more comforting than a cup of tea? Well, yes, a hot shower followed by a cup of tea, but the tea is the main thing. Being out in the cold, having a hard day, getting up early when it's still pitch black... all horrible (and sometimes daily events) that are softened by a warm, relaxing, soothing cuppa. 
I don't drink breakfast tea now; I've become one of those people who actually can't fit all the tea in the cupboard and I have about 14 different kinds all for different times of day and scenarios... yeah.

NUMBER THREE//  NAIL VARNISH

This isn't as trivial as it sounds honestly! But isn't there something lovely when you're not feeling 100%, or everyone around you is in black and grey for work, to just paint on some nail  varnish and be like BOOM. I love the expression of it all, I love seeing what colours people wear, or what nail art - I absolutely love the freedom and expression of nail varnish.

NUMBER FOUR// FOR MIDNIGHT SNACKS

OK, so I know in January everyone is supposed to try and be healthy, but, well I missed the boat this year (I'll give it a go next year... ahem) and so I seem to in fact be devising new ways to get less healthy. It's impressive really; my innovation and dedication in this field. I have been indulging in many late night snacks lately, popcorn, apples (well OK, one apple. One time), cheese, cereal - how good are naughty late night snacks? 


NUMBER FIVE // DEADWOOD

That's right, Deadwood; the television show about cursing, killing, cliched cow boys. I am so grateful that this show exists. I've been struggling with my sleep of late; I've tried everything I can think of but no, only one thing works. There is only one circumstance that I can get to sleep before 3am, and that is when we're watching Deadwood. What can I say; all the violence and swearing just sends me to sleep like a baby.  

So that's what I'm grateful for today;  how about you?
