This Saturday I’m grateful for…………

Have you visited any of those gorgeous blogs with beautiful photo’s and cleverly crafted shots of all things yummy and pretty? They make me sigh out loud. I am green with envy when I look at those sites. One of my favourites is Maxabella loves.

Each Saturday there is yet another beautifully finished page with a “this Saturday I’m grateful for,” today I woke up to see cousin Bianca being grateful for her hair straighteners….the transformation shot is incredible!

After spending an evening with 3 men in my bed (be careful what you wish for it may just come true one day), I awoke at 7 to hear our front door closing. Little traveler number 3 had escaped, it’s a little trick he has, he likes to go and “visit” people from about 6.30am on the weekends…’s only 7.05 and we already have an apology to make to a neighbour. Little travelers 1 and 2 are happily playing the playroom but number 4 has a “to do” list for me before I’ve even opened my eyes, his Barbie’s hair just isn’t quite right, his mask that he made at school is broken, he can’t find his Scooby Doo t-shirt and he feels it’s his civic duty to tell me at least five times that his brother left the house without asking. With one eye open I see G enter the room with this:

This Saturday, I’m grateful for G and the simplicity of a tray filled with vegemite on toast, cups of tea and oranges.

  1. That husband of yours is a good man!! How gorgeous, what a lovely way to wake up. I’m thinking that toast is for the family to share or you guys eat a lot of toast?! xx

    PS: Yes, I got myself a new hair straightener! Works well, don’t you think?

  2. That is absolutely beautiful – seriously, I can’t imagine a more desirable sight. You are extraordinarily blessed!

  3. There is nothing more amazing than vegemite on toast when you don’t live in Australia. I know. Love your blog and thank you for following my blog too. It’s official – I’m a follower. (And your “About Me” made me laugh!

  4. What a perfect tray to be presented with! Well done hubby!

  5. I’d be really impressed if I got a breakfast tray like that delivered to my bed!

  6. What a gorgeous family breakfast in bed!!!

    I really love the idea that you are fearlessly travelling so much with your young ones. We travelled a lot before we married but not at all since the junior burgers came along. I’m looking for inspiration, so I’ll be following your blog with much interest!!!

    Don’t forget to link back to me and please join in again next Saturday. It would be lovely to see you. x

  7. Now *that* is the way to wake up. Makes my experience of being bashed on the head with a toy truck seem not quite as cute as I, at first, thought.

  8. Oh nice!! love the tea pot 🙂

  9. Brilliant, Kirsty! I spotted the Vegemite straight away. Where do you find your stash?! J x

  10. Breakfast in bed! One lucky lady you!

  11. Thanks guys. The vegemite is carefully hand carried back on each trip and a request that’s made to every visitor to Qatar. The tea pot – was a gift from a group of girlfriends when I left KL, it’s a Royal Selangor pot, yes, it’s gorgeous and has a lot of sentimental value as well as being uniquely Malaysian (thanks for noticing).


  12. Lovely! There is not much in life that is better than a thoughtful gesture. Enjoy!

  13. Nice!! Actually I could go a cuppa and tray full of vegemite toast right now too 🙂 xxx

  14. Thank you for visiting and thank you for following. Wow that is so loving and caring to receive a breakfast like that. See you soon. Charmaine

  15. Thank you for your kind words. What a lift!!

    Three men in a bed. Sigh. It wasn’t meant to be like this, surely?!

    Great to see your linky, luv. x
