I was watching one of my (many, numerous) Louis CK videos this afternoon, everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy.

The swearing is bleeped out, just FYI. Go on, go watch it. You’ll be nodding at what Louis’ got to say.

I’m feeling replenished for the beginning of 2012 and trying to be more open, accepting and grateful this year.

Maxabella’s grateful meme is growing into a Kidspot feature in 2012 – it’s great to see a blogger do well, isn’t it? I’m a big fan of Maxabella’s honesty, wisdom and humility and I love to see good things happen to bloggers I admire.

As a lady of luxury for just under 2 more weeks, I have the time to be grateful for MANY things, but I’ve narrowed it down to just four this week – all with photos because I’m loving my new phone and the Flickr app with their filters (in lieu of being a cool kid and having instagram).

I’m grateful for my Hill’s Hoist – after years of only having about 2 hours of sun on the clothesline in bohemia, we now have 8+hrs of sun on our clothesline in suburbia. I love wearing my thongs out the back and soaking up some vitamin D while I’m bringing in the clothes after dinner. The novelty will wear off eventually, so I’ll enjoy it while I can…!

Grateful for my clothesline!

I’m grateful for old friends who are still the same after all those years.   We had dinner recently and it was still like the old days of laughing, squealing and fun. And realising that, deep down, we’re all still 13yo boys at heart.

Grateful for immaturity with friends

Grateful for thinking about the big ideas, especially for Smarter Admins. So many bloggers are savvy with their PR/media backgrounds and sometimes I feel a bit lost and aimless. Well, I have aims, but I can’t make the steps from here to there. I’m very lucky to have some savvy friends who help me out along the way.

Grateful for planning

I’m grateful for my new local park and being able go to the local chicken shop to grab some lunch and sit in the park and catch up on some long-overdue reading (yet another resolution when I’m saying I’m not making resolutions)
