Fruit and I are wary of each other. Every time I start to think I kinda like it, it tosses me a frigid manadarin or a wanton pear. When it’s good, it’s very, very good, but when it’s bad it is just so darn awful that I start to realise that the thing about a Snickers Bar isn’t that it’s convenient or addictive ‘cos of the high salt/sugar/fat combo… no, it’s successful because you always know what you’re going to get.
Fruit isn’t like that. Yuuuummmmm…. Snickers Bar… sorry, where was I?
But, this week I’m grateful for…
139. Oranges – sorry, Ms Winterson, but they actually are the only fruit that seems to be tolerable most of the time.
140. Baking – flour puffs, oozy dough, greasy hands, fragrant warmth, spoon-licking goodness. Substituting wholemeal flour means it’s all good for you, right?
141. My pathetic little heater – yeah, yeah, I know I said last week that I really love the cold. But that was cold days. Not, you know, later at night when you’re freezing through your four layers and your feet just won’t warm up without a little help. Not then. So, we thought about getting ducted reverse-cycle air-con and I got it costed up and then I realised that my pathetic little radiator heater wasn’t as bad as I thought…
So, what’s making you smile today? Add your I’m Grateful For post to the list below (and please, we love you, but it really does matter that your post is a Grateful one and not just a random), add the button (grab the code from my sidebar and paste it into your post) and pretty-please add a link back to me.
