Being Thankful

snow is gone and it’s like spring at the moment – yay!

yesterday was my last class and we’re off for the winter break, so no one-on-one conversation or presentation, no beginner’s class, no intermediate class preparing them for their exams, no travelling to different schools and companies, etc. See them again in March!

all my bags are packed, I’m ready to go! On Monday I fly to the Philippines, the next day to Hong Kong with my mother and aunt, back after 4 days, Him Indoors join me in the Philippines and we go to one of the best islands in the country called Coron, Palawan. Then we fly to Singapore, see his brother and family, then a couple of days in Cambodia to see Angkor Wat. Back home at the end of February, cheers!

I can’t wait to see my mother again, plus all my friends and relatives, eat Filipino food, ride a jeepney, be in a traffic for hours (not!), be in sweat because of the heat, go swimming in the beach, malling, etc.

I had my check-up last Monday and everything seems to be alright – my sugar values are under control and I’m trying to eat healthy food. I use the cross trainer everyday and we try to limit alcohol and sweets. Here’s to good health!

I still enjoy blogging and participate in as many prompts as possible. When I’m away, I have scheduled some blogs to be posted. Otherwise, I’ll make it up to all of you when we get back in March.

HRH the son and his beautiful K are still in love and doing well in the UK. The son is finished with his Masters and just waiting for the oral examination. K will finish her Masters in July. We’re all looking forward to the wedding in May (in England) and August (in India). Here’s to their bright future!

I’m really grateful for everything/everyone that made/making me smile this week and everyday of my life. Him Indoors – the love of my life, HRH the son and his beautiful K, my mother, my siblings and their families, my friends (real and virtual), relatives (through social networks), my students, neighbours, sunrise and sunset, snow, wind, birds singing or making nests, music (classical, jazz), opera, plays, films, good food, zumba, latin dance, crosstrainer, body balance, tea (all sorts of tea) and all of you, my blogging friends – THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

  1. It feels like spring here and will for the next week, but winter can return at any time and I’m not counting out more snow. It sounds like a great vacation, with all of the wonderful places you are going and visiting family. It looks like you have a lot to look forward to this year! And a lot to be thankful for, which we all do if we are honest. have a great time and enjoy the heat! And thanks for the smile 🙂
