Friday’s Gratitude List

Quote of the week: ‘when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.’ – Samuel Johnson

I can’t believe Friday has swung around again and it’s already time for my gratitude list of the week. Don’t the weeks just seem to hurtle by? It’s almost the end of November already! Unbelievable. Anyway, here are the 3 things for which I’ve been particularly grateful this week:

-London. I’ve lived in London for 9 years now, which is the longest I’ve ever lived in one place. I still love it just as much as when I was desperate to move here at 18. There’s something especially magical about the city this time of year too, when Christmas lights pop up all over the place and there’s a sense of festivity in the air.

-Getting back into my exercise routine (a very good thing considering all the baking I’ve been doing recently!!). It’s been hard to find a rhythm over the past couple of months: balancing blogging, a social life and work is a challenging juggling act (seasoned bloggers – any tips on this?!), and I’ve skipped more nights than I’ve liked from doing my Sleek Technique classes. Slowly, though, I’m beginning to settle into this new pace of life and have been very happy to get back to a more regular workout plan.

-Having the experience of being a bridesmaid. I feel very honoured to have been able to be so involved with the wedding of such lovely friends. The dress rehearsal is tonight, with the wedding tomorrow. I’m very excited!!

I hope you all having an exciting weekend ahead of you too! What are you plans?
