This Saturday I’m grateful for… newspapers

Here in Maxabellaland, Saturday is traditionally a sport, shop, sort the clothes, sweep the floors, strangle the Tsunamis (insert other ‘s’ words here – no pun intended) kinda day. But it’s nice to pause to appreciate the things in your life that are positive and affirming, whatever they may be. 

This Saturday I’m grateful for…

1. Good customer service – To the little guy at the newsagency near Wynyard who is clearly working an after-school gig on Tuesdays and Thursdays… thank you. You are so much nicer than the after-school guy who works Mondays and Fridays.

2. Newspapers – I won’t give you up. I like holding your hand while I ponder the world.

3. Egg yolks – I’ve written about yolks before over here (it’s amazing what becomes your defining preoccupations while blogging), but I just wanted to say again that scrambled egg whites just ain’t my thing at all.

So, what’s making you smile today? Link back your own Grateful post below and then pop over to visit other bloggers who are spreading a little sunshine.  No hurry – we’re all about laaaaazy Saturdays. Link is open all week. Happy day to you!

    What a gorgeous picture! Yay for good customer service, it is rare to find sometimes. Without egg yolks cupcakes wouldn’t be the same. I’m not much a a newspaper person, but I do love mags.

    You know what, i read the newspaper every day! even though im on the gold coast i still buy my trusted old daily telegraph, i still cant switch to the local papers up here!

    i love reading them with a cuppa, or a vodka, its 10 minutes of peace and thats bliss!

    OMG I posted about this on twitter this week. I don’t understand any diet that promotes egg whites. Seriously, what’s the point? It’s the yolk that is the important bit.
    Have a lovely weekend gorgeous one xxx

    Friendly customer service is a godsend. It doesn’t happen much in the regional city where I live (friendly people are often those who aren’t from here).
    One day in another bigger regional city I was going through the supermarket checkout. The lovely girl said, ‘I recognise your sons, they come here with your husband’. Such a lovely feeling that from the 1000s of people she’ll see in her working life she remembers my kids. Am fervently hoping it was because they were so well behaved!
    Thanks for giving us reminders to be grateful.
