Three Things Thursday: 25 August 2016

As usual I’m joining with Emily of Nerd in the Brain (and others) for Three Things Thursday’. As she says…

*three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy*

First, breaking even. I’ve now got to the point where my year’s pass for the local swimming pool is paying off. Since the middle of January I have been swimming 59 times. This means that every time I go for the rest of the year is effectively free (in fact break-even was at 56).

I think this is the only photo I have of the swimming pool

Second, moths. I love moths and we’ve been enjoying visits from a variety of them in both the house and the garden. Mr Snail has taken some lovely photographs over the past couple of weeks, here are a few of them…

Third, generosity. I have received two large parcels of yarn from Gabriella, one of you lovely people who follow this blog. She was having a sort-out and asked me if I might be able to make use of some of her unwanted stash. I was completely bowled over by what arrived. Some of this will be used in my beginners crochet class in October, and I plan to make a blanket with some of it and other yarn in my stash to send to the marvellous charity Knit for Peace. There was even a knitted square in with the yarn that I shall use as the centre for the blanket.

Such kindness

So that’s it for this week. What are you feeling grateful for?
