In June I was grateful for... #365DaysOfGratitude

I have seen many people on social media list something every day that they are grateful for and thought I would join in and have on my private Facebook account every day and I thought I would share here too. I am hoping to continue it for the rest of the year and longer.

Today I am grateful for

Today I am grateful for more Jubilee celebrations locally. A beer & cider festival. This afternoon Stu & I went off to the church to join in the fun while Ellie was out with her friends and Becky was sleeping for a night shift. I had 3 different ciders. A rhubarb one, a strawberry one, a dark fruit one as well as a hot dog for tea.

Day 156 of #365DaysOfGratitude 
Today I am grateful for Titanic being on Disney+ now. I've been fancying watching it for ages but couldn't find until today. I always forget what a good film it is.

Day 157 of #365DaysOfGratitude 
Today I am grateful for This new thingy. I've seen them loads on TikTok, the crystal hair remover and wanted to give it a try. It works. It's no quicker than shaving your legs with a razor but it is less faff. You just rub where there's hair and the hair is gone. I got mine off ebay and it cost about £8.50.

Day 177 of #365DaysOfGratitude 
Today I am grateful that the ice cream man eventually turned up! I'd given up hope and had a choc ice out of the freezer. I was gutted when I heard his music. It was just the kids getting something.

Day 178 of #365DaysOfGratitude 
Today I am grateful that we are well and truly settled here. This time 3 years ago we were leaving Ashington in Northumberland to move to North Lincolnshire. Time really does fly. It was a big move and scary but we've never been happier!

Day 179 of #365DaysOfGratitude 
Today I am grateful for a delicious meal tonight. Thai-Style pork patties with sweet potato wedges & salad from Gousto. It's not something we would normally eat but we will be again. It was easy to make and tasted amazing! I did end up with 16 patties instead of 8. lol I obviously made them too small but it didn't make a difference to the taste.

Day 180 of #365DaysOfGratitude 
Today I am grateful that Becky has completed 3 years in college. It was her last day today. She officially starts full time work over the weekend, still at the care home where she's been working part time! I am so proud of her.

Coconut jam cake

Day 181 of #365DaysOfGratitude 
Today I am grateful that Becky baked a coconut and jam sponge cake. It turned out really well. Stu was even happier, it's his favourite cake!

What were you grateful for in June?


  1. I found it difficult to share the things I was grateful for as some of our greatest achievements are rather personal. I can honestly say I was grateful that my daughter's birthday last week went really well and that she was really happy with all her presents and treats. It's always a bit of hit and miss but this year it was definitely a hit!

  2. So many wonderful things to be grateful for!! I'm grateful that my boys and I had a lovely hike and all the funny/ neat things we end up talking about the whole time.

  3. I really enjoyed reading through your list of things you are grateful for. Looks like June was a really big month with lot's of good things happening for your lovely family. Hope Becky is enjoying her job and so is Stu. xx
