There is no doubt that this has been the worst year of my life it’s been encompassed by so much illness, grief, suffering and tragedy. Forgive me for sounding so glum but it is what it is. I wont harp on about it but I will be glad to see the end of it!
Having said that tho’ I was sitting in the garden enjoying the early morning sunshine and contemplating my navel .. no not really, I was watching the different species of birds and noticing that I had little gangs and pairs of them. Some liked to hang out and eat with each other and some clearly didn’t and it wasn’t dependent on their species either. A hard one to fathom. But I got to thinking that I was grateful to them and loved to observe them every day.So then I thought of something else and then another thing I was actually “most grateful” for so I hung up my coat of glumness and started jotting them down and here they areIn no particular order;

I am most grateful every day for a pussycat that wandered into my garden skinny, starving and either lost or abandoned. Here she is today .. “Puss Puss” literally this morning and on one of her royal rugs, of which she has several because the two mad people that she commands run around putting them wherever she likes to sit.
