I am grateful for my pretend umbrella????

I was driving home from work tonight in the rain and feeling a wee bit tired at the end of a loooooooong week. I popped into my trusty car stereo a Cd that my lovely neighbour had given me as they were having a clean out.
I had this CD once, but had lost it and playing it again made me remember how much I missed it…(Norah Jones….Come away with me). How grateful was I to have this Cd back again???? Very!!! It made me think of other things that I was grateful for that had happened within the last 24 hours…….(Okay, I know that I have a weird brain!!!!!) but let’s face it, where I live it is bloody freezing,
rainy and dark by about 5pm….so I need to get creative. So here is part of my mental list: 1. Car heaters 2.Norah Jones 3.Friday knock off time 4. Arriving home to a warm house 5.A much loved family pooch greeting me with her waggly tail 6. Hubby getting up at 2am last night to a “I had a bad dream and can’t get back to sleep” call, whilst I went back to sleep 7. Changing into my pyjama pants after work 8.Hubby just popping a cup of tea next to me while I type. 9. Thinking of a big sleep in tomorrow 10. Electric blankets!  Let me know
some of your, wintery moments, grateful list……Let me know I am not alone in my Quirky thoughts????????????????
