Last year I started Things I Love Thursdays and then (as with so many other things!) never really kept it going. The idea however, has not stopped rattling around in my head, but I want to change it to Thankful Thursdays instead. I want to keep this regular, not only to remind me to be always thankful, but also as part of my One Little Word challenge for this year. How can I be negative when I have so much to be thankful for?
So without further ado, here's what I'm thankful for this week:
Okay, this may look a little strange - I'm thankful for Woolies?!? Well, yes! You see, today was the Grand Opening for Woolworths in my village and it has been long awaited. There is a Coles up the road in the next village (along with Aldi), but I've always preferred shopping at Woolies. Why? Well, I find the prices are (somewhat) cheaper than Coles and the store layout/experience is much nicer. Besides, they have self-checkout and I love that! LOL
It's not the biggest of Woolies, but it carries most of what I usually buy so I can't complain. Besides, it's all new and shiny and who doesn't like new and shiny?!? LOL
I'm also thankful for the freebies I got today, being Grand Opening day. A lovely single pink rose, a reuseable shopping bag and best of all, a pack of fresh hot cross buns! Mmmm...
So thanks (heh heh) for putting up with my waffle about Woolies, and yes, I probably do need to get a life! LOL
