#Tuesday Ten - Things I am thankful for RIGHT NOW!

Last night the worst 'blogging' thing happened to me! I (accidentally) deleted my entire #TuesdayTen post - "Things that I am thankful for". I had just finished it and was making a few minor changes, however my quick fingers selected the whole document and with a press of a button it was gone and Blogger automatically saved the new changes (#notcool). I couldn't undo it, or go back...it was GONE. I wanted to cry! It was late and there was nothing I could do about it. So I just closed my laptop and went to bed, absolutely gutted.  

So here I am (again) re-writing my 10 things that I am thankful for RIGHT NOW, not in general, RIGHT THIS MINUTE!

1. Master M having a nap
I am so thankful that my son has gone down for his nap this morning so that I can do this post. Fingers crossed he decides to have a BIG nap, because this might take some time!

2. A clean kitchen 
Yesterday I re-started the 20 Day Challenge because I hadn't found a cleaning schedule that I liked or that worked for me - the 20 day Challenge did. So I cleaned my kitchen top to bottom (worked up a sweat too I might add). I even cleaned the cat door (by golly it definitely needed it, eww). Such a great feeling to have a nice, clean & clutter-free kitchen!

3. 20 Day Challenge Facebook Group
I am part of this amazing Facebook group (community) that supports and encourages everyone throughout the challenge. I am able to share my before & after photos, ask/give advice and motivate other members which, in turn, motivates me to keep going when I feel like procrastinating (I am a great procrastinator!) I am also thankful to Katrina @ The Organised Housewife for creating this challenge and Facebook group! You are amazing!

4. Happy & healthy children
I am also thankful that they chose ME to be their Mummy. They mean everything to me and make me who I am today! I love being a Mum and I am truly blessed to have them in my world. Mummy Loves You xxx

5. My partner 
We will be celebrating our 3 year anniversary in April next year. I am so thankful that he is in my our lives. He came into my life knowing that I had a daughter and that didn't bother him one bit. He is great with Miss B and a fantastic father to Master M. He is my rock and I love him so much. I am one very lucky lady to have such an amazing partner. Love you babe xxx

6. My parents
I am thankful that my parents are coming down this weekend to look after my kids so that my partner & I can go to his work-do. This will be the first night out (for me) since Master M arrived! I am very nervous about leaving Master M, however I know he is going to be fine - my parents are very experienced with children, having had 5 of their own and we all turned out alright! So thank you Mum & Dad for being the BEST BABYSITTERS EVER!

7. K-Mart 
Last week a new K-Mart store opened in our city. Everyone loves K-Mart - I mean what's not to love about this store - for me I just love how organised it is! Anyway - I am thankful for K-Mart because when I went in there the other day (for the first time), I saw a few items that I would love to buy for our First Night Out! (Thank you Mum & Dad for my Birthday $ - it will be going towards a new outfit)

8. Birthdays 
{Just putting it out there - it's my birthday this Friday 28th November}. I am thankful to live another year and to celebrate my birthday with my amazing friends and family! My daughter & partner have asked that I make a "Birthday Wish List" so that they can go shopping for my present - I am thankful that I don't have to buy my own presents (like I did before I met my partner).

9. Coffee Groups & SPACE* Mums
I am thankful to the Mums & Bubs that I have met since having Master M. (I am also still in contact with a few mums from when Miss B was a baby). They are an amazing bunch of ladies, who I consider dear friends and I am really glad that they are in our lives. Their babies are Master M's first friends and we will never forget them!

10. Blogging 
I have followed many blogs over the years and I am really glad I created my own blog: Teacher by trade - Mother by nature. It is the 5th wall in my home and my creative outlet - where I can share anything and everything that I am passionate about. I am still fairly new to the blogging world and I am continuously learning and growing my own little community. Blogging is great because it keeps my mind busy and stimulated, it is also something FOR ME and for that, I am thankful to the blogging community and YOU - the people that read my blog inspiring me each and every day!

And there you have it - this weeks #TuesdayTen - 10 Things that I am thankful for RIGHT NOW!
(Thanks again to Master M who has had a massive nap)
