a week of wishes and thanks

I wish I could work out all the answers to the compounds words.

I'm thankful for Ali and all the photographers, it's been a fun week.

I wish I could see my blog friends more often.

I'm thankful for random excited texts about ukeleles.

I wished my camera was mended (ok maybe this one was more of a moan)

I'm thankful for the message on the phone that says it is! hurray, I have hated it being sick and was ever so slightly fearful it couldn't be fixed. Just need to go to the big city and collect it now.....

I wish my family would stop coming home with every cough, cold and sniffle that is at work/school.

I'm thankful that so far I have resisted them, and am drinking rosehip syrup just in case......

I wish that the entry dates for the Edinburgh moonwalk would be released, I am impatient to enter.

I'm thankful for the scalp cooler that is helping my friend keep her hair during her chemotherapy.

I wish that children came with an instruction manual, so that you didn't take a child to the hospital thinking it had appendicitus when it fact it was "non specific abdominal pain - take calpol and go to bed" .

I'm thankful to the neighbours who drove me and child to and from the hospital when I was busy being a neurotic mother........

I wish you all a very happy weekend.

what are you wishing for, or thankful for today?


  1. Oooh I'd love to learn to play ukelele! We've been having rosehip syrup here too. And so glad it wasn't appendicitis--eeek! K x

  2. Love your post today. There are plenty of things to be thankful for aren't there? I too with that children came with an instruction manual.
    I'm still stuck on a couple of the compound words. Violet would probably do better than me.
    Get yourself over to my blog - I'm having a giveaway.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  3. I think if they did come with a manual I'd probably be too lazy to read it.

    I made a wish yesterday that is going to come true. Lovely Emma Silverpebble is making me a special something.

    I am thankful for an unexpected gift from a reader -a special blend of spice for adding to bread from Sweden.

  4. Sounds like a torrid week. Very pleased the belly ache wasn't more sinister.

    I'm hoping to make one of your wishes come true too - we were planning a trip northwards and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can get together. Will e-mail...

  5. I wish I had more time to do the things I want to do for pleasure but I am thankful for the little time that I do get. Kids don't come with instruction manuals because they would be too heavy to pick up!

    1. Good point! They would need continual updates too.

    2. the children are too heavy to pick up now too!

    3. you would probably need a whole new manual for each year of their lives....

  6. I'm wishing my elder one would start to feel better - she won't eat anything because she's worried about being sick again. I am thankful that I was able to drop everything and stay at home with them both today. And I'm relieved your son doesn't have appendicitis but I hope he's better soon too.

  7. I'm wishing I didn't have such a sore throat but am thankful that it is the least of my worries.

    I'm wishing I had a real fire for these dark evenings but am thankful that I am not cold.

    I'm wishing that I could see my blog friends more but I'm thankful that they all live right there in my computer.

    Wishing you a restful weekend xx


    1. I love that your friends are living in your computer, just as you are all in mine xxxx (and I only have a laptop so it's a squash and a squeeze in there)

  8. I've never heard of scalp cooler,it's a fantastic idea.

  9. I wish there were more days in the week, we have lots to do, so little time. I'm thankful my husband isn't feeling as lazy as I am today!
    Xox happy weekend .. no illness!

  10. Lovely post and we do have so much to be thankful for.
    I am thankful too, to be able to go around and visit my blog friends from all around the world and see how they are doing.

    Happy weekend

  11. "Ideal for travel" it said on the box. Compared to, say, a double bass.

  12. Wishing for peace of mind. I know, it's about as vague as one could get.

  13. I'm wishing I had the time to visit all my blog friends every day, I always seem to be playing catch up, but I'm truly thankful that they're in my computer too :)

    Lovely post Tess :D
