I have a lot to be thankful for both in and out of my blog life.
My thanks always go to my readers and followers, as without them, my blog wouldn’t exist.
The 10 weeks of Thursday applause for our NHS and those in the front line was a united effort to show the Nation’s thanks to those who we so often take for granted.
It costs nothing to say Thank You.
Hubby and I say it all the time to shop staff who serve us at the counters or on the shop floor if we’ve got a query. We’ve discovered it can be the two most important words in our vocabulary, as it can lift someone’s spirits and raise a smile. Both of us have worked with the public and know what a thankless task it can be, so for someone to say ‘Thank You’ or simply ‘Thanks’ makes it all worthwhile.
The most precious Thank You I ever had was from the mother of a foster child who stayed with me for a fortnight. She never had a good word to say about anyone, and never thanked anybody for anything, but I got a letter. I still have it.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
You’re so right Di and I do the same.
😀 Something I was brought up with ,to say please and thank you. I still write thank you letters.
I was brought up the same way.
Saying “Thank you” takes but a moment and improves our day by loads.
It certainly does Sadje.
Thank you is very important, Di. I can say that my work colleagues are always very good about thanking me and I appreciate it. It makes my very stressful job better.
It’s always nice to feel appreciated. My boss at the bank was very good like that and looked after his team very well
Thank you seems simple but it has a huge impact
very much so
I was taught magic as a child – the magic words were Please and Thank-you!
