Sunday thankfulness

Happy Sunday, lovelies!

It’s been a good weekend.

Things I am thankful for this sunny Sunday:

  • The first tiny tomato on my tiny tomato plant!  I’m growing an actual vegetable!  Or rather, a fruit.  But still, it’s growing.  I’ll take the win. You’ve got to look closely, but it’s there.Tomato!
  • ABBA playing randomly on the radio.
  • An early night to come before a mad week.
  • An afternoon with some of my best girls on a long-overdue catch-up. There were bubbles, and cheeses.  And Russian fudge.
  • Clean laundry.
  • Not one but two outings with one of my soul sisters, always good for the spirit.
  • Craft markets with insanely talented artists and vendors.
  • A-Team reruns

Here’s to a good week!  Hope you’ve had a great weekend x
