Saturday Grateful

THis Saturday I am very grateful, for so many things - I am feeling a little loved up -  so I am going to follow the lead of the gorgeous Maxabella Loves again, and list all the lovely things I am grateful for today -

  • My iPhone that tells me it the time in the UK and the slide of a screen, so that I can call my big brother so very easily. And talk for an hour or two first thing in my morning, last thing at his evening.

  • I should also mention that my big brother is my absolute hero, and that not a day goes past that I don't wish we lived in the same village together. Thank you Chas, for just all that you are, and being the one that always brings me back to centre. xx

  • The Weber and a roast chook dinner that I do not have a hand in cooking. Always, I am eternally grateful to Mr Weber, who makes it appealing for my lovely husband to cook.

  • Home grown beetroot. Gorgeous stuff. Love it. Thank you, lovely husband, for the green fingered man you are.

What about you? What are you grateful for, today?


  1. Not sure I could love without my iPhone anymore. Actually I know I couldn't.

    Home grown beetroot? YUM. None of ours survived the miserableness that was winter. Jealous!

  2. I have tagged you in a meme. It's here:
    You'll notice that your blog entry prompted one of my questions!

    Oh I have never had a weber cooked meal but hear they are YUMMO! Great when Hubby does it too!

  4. It was divine. We have shed-loads. All harvested in preparation for the tomatoes to go in. Wish you were closer - I'd give you a basketful......

  5. It was divine. I ate WAY too much, but it was so yum.

  6. Mmmmmm beetroot is so delicious isn't it. Yum!

    Hey Lucy.

    I've never quite understood how to tackle real life beetroot -- I've only ever used it from a can. I feel like a curious city-dwelling alien creature who doesn't know where food comes from! It is definitely delicious though, whatever its mysterious origins.

    Thanks for the blog hop! : )

    xx Becks

  8. I am also grateful for the warmer weather, which inspires my husband to cook on the BBQ. Fresh air, glass of wine, and some chatter. Lovely.

  9. Terille, you are so right. I cleaned our outdoor tables and chairs so that I could sit and was lovely. The hammock will be out next, and then I can swing in the sun and chat, all to the smell of roasting meat.........

  10. Oooh Becks, if you love it from a can, you will ADORE it fresh. It's cheap in the shops at the moment too - just top and tail it, and peel like a potato, then wrap in al-foil or baking paper to bake.....that's it. Serve as is, nude and unadorned. Bloody delicious.

  11. Sarah, we have a glut. But I am not complaining......(off to google more recipes now actually...)

  12. Oh yes, the BBQ. Don't ever let the men know that since gas came in, it's really just a big, outdoor stove.

    Your brother sounds fantastic. What a great relationship. Lucky Lucy.

    Thanks for linking, my good egg. x

  13. I am lucky. He is brilliant. I just wish he could upsticks and leave the UK and come live around the corner from me in Adelaide. It'll never happen...


I am a comment addict. Thank you so much for your words...xx
