Grateful for a table for two...

Tonight I am grateful for a few things.

I am grateful to have my house back to myself after weeks of guests.

I am grateful for being able to curl up on my couch and fall asleep in front of Hustle. Just me and my lovely husband, in peace.

I am grateful for my three gorgeous children, whose goodness has overwhelmed me - they have made me so proud - their grandparents are suitably impressed.

In turn, I am also very grateful to my parents in law.

They have babysat for us a fair bit this week - the lovely husband and I have eaten out, just the two of us, in some amazing restaurants.

The intimacy and conversations that eating out affords - I am grateful for that.

I am grateful for a table for two.

What are you grateful for this week?


  1. Great list! I know I love company but then I look forward to peace and quiet :) It's a balancing act!

    I'm grateful for..
    - my health
    - my boyfriend
    - my family

  2. I'd love to go out on a date with my husband. The last one was what seems like years ago... no less than 6 months, anyway.

  3. Fantastic list! I just got back from being the guest, so I know it's nice to visit, but always nice to be back in your own house as well.

  4. ooh, so sweet! I also love eating out with my bf, somehow it never stops being special! :o)

  5. Oh some quality time with your lovely hubby, sounds perfect. I've just realised the first time I'll be alone with Mr G since Miss A came along will in fact be on our wedding day when he becomes my lovely hubby. xx

  6. that's so lovely!! So great to reconnect with your partner occassionally :-)
    And oh, isn't it great when people you love go away again (lol)
    have a great weekend

    PS: thank you so much Lucy for all your twtr love - I really appreciate it - makes me feel so welcome :-)

  7. Oh a table for 2 sounds divine i've almost forgotten what that feels like lol

  8. It's so lovely when a 'date' is still exciting or appreciated long after 'dating.

  9. lots of lovely gratefulness. We had a table for 2 recently , it had been 2 years!

  10. a table for two is a lovely thing!

  11. Catching up with family can be great. Watching the children interact with their grandparents can be wonderful.

    Time alone with your husaband as adults...priceless.

    What great things you are grateful for today.

  12. i love your name ... diminishing lucy! i am struggling to lose weight for a big event in less than five weeks' time and would love to be able to diminish! :)

  13. love posts about gratitude because it makes you sit and think about all that you have to be grateful for yourself...

    I have an unexpected, and particularly lovely thing to be grateful this afternoon. I get to spend time with my partner without any children in tow. Conversation without interuption, thai dinner, doing whatever else takes our fancy...

  14. The table for two cannot compare to anything else particularly when there has been so much going on. So glad you've enjoyed that time together.

  15. I always look forward to at least one dinner at a table for two when mr w comes home!

  16. A lovely list! I love eating out at nice restaurants, especially when its just me and my hubby..
    Hope your having a good weekend! x

  17. You've got a lot of lovely comments, I hope you still read mine..lols

    I am genuinely grateful that I found you and your blog. That's just it.

    Happy Father's Day Lucy!

    And oh, I tried to use linkytools too..I hope it'll work..^^


  18. I love the gratitude list, it really helps me keep things in perspective!

    - I'm grateful for my health
    - I'm grateful for the success of others. This one I've been thinking about a lot. Seeing others succeed really inspires me...I've been watching Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition (Monday nights on ABC at 10pm/9c) and Rachel's story just resonated with many similarities it was amazing to see someone with similar struggles. Check it out:
    - I'm grateful for the sun coming up each day and the opportunity it brings

    Thanks for posting gratitude lists! Enjoy your weekend!

  19. SUCH a lovely week, Lucy. x
