Gratitude Post #7 – Thank you July

I seriously cannot believe we are already in August. Where is this year going? It will be Christmas before we know it. Anyway, Gratitude Post #7 – Thank you July is the latest post in my monthly gratitude series where I aim to find the positives in everyday life. July was a great month for us. Here is what we feel grateful for:   Molly’s Third Birthday It was Molly’s third birthday this month. She is old enough now to know what birthdays are so she was super excited for the occasion. It was Chris’ birthday in April and ever since then, Molly has been asking if it was her birthday yet and if she could have a chocolate cake for her birthday present. Of all the things she could ask for it was a chocolate cake. Obviously, we obliged. Chocolate cake is good!   Gulliver’s World As it was Molly’s birthday we took the kids to Gulliver’s World. We all had a brilliant day, in spite of the torrential rain! We are looking forward to returning when the weather is nicer.       Out Out We went out out this month to see boy band ‘Five’ who were performing at a local nightclub. I used to love them when I was younger so it brought us right back to our youth.   Makeover Molly and Jess decided we were in need of a makeover and did our make up for us. I didn’t want to tell them that they had smudged the lipstick slightly and put the mascara in the wrong place! They really enjoyed themselves. My eyes didn’t though as they were being poked all the time. Not with mascara though because that goes on your cheeks. Obviously!     Muddy Puddles My garden has some drainage problems which I really need to get sorted because when it rains my grass starts to resemble a lake. Not good! Well, unless you are a toddler that loves jumping in muddy puddles that is! Molly is definitely this. She must have spent at least an hour jumping in this puddle, only stopping because she was freezing.   Is that Chris or Gru? The biggest highlight of my month was discovering that Chris looks like Gru from Despicable Me. What do you think? I laughed and laughed at this. I am still laughing. If I didn’t know any better I would think the character had been modelled on Chris.   So that is the Gratitude Post #7 – Thank you July round up. What little things are you grateful for this month?   Thanks for reading,   Sam x *UPDATE* You can also find me blogging at Serenely Sam
