Thankful Thursday: The Winter Solstice Edition...

It's Thankful Thursday again, of course, I was always going to post today because I'm ever so thankful the Grumpy Old Man passed his licence test last Monday!

I have much more to be thankful for though...

I am thankful that today is the winter solstice, the very sgortest day of the year, which means as of tomorrow the days will only get longer and brighter and warmer until just before Christmas!

I am thankful to be in Adelaide today in the rarified academic atmosphere of Tabor College where I undertook my Writing Masters! 

I'm thankful the Grumpy Old Man is okay with me taking off for a few days while he has the kids, so I can focus fully on preparing to write the propsal for the PhD I want to do very soon!

I am thankful for conversations with people that help my sort out exactly how I want to approach this thesis.

I am thankful for school mums who help ferry 6 year olds to and from concerts when their own mum has abandoned them to 'pursue her career'!

I am thankful that thus month's giant pimple is hidden under my hairline!

I am thankful the school kids payment is paid according to age rather than grade!

I am thankful for hot pies on cold rainy days!

What are you thankful for?

Linking up with Kate Says Stuff for Thankfult Thursday!
