Today is Thankful Friday. It seems to have taken a long time to get here in spite of the Bank Holiday, but it's here... finally.
Today I am thankful for new life. Last night, in northern France, one of my oldest, bestest friends had a beautiful baby boy.
She went on holiday and also went into labour. That's one holiday souvenir that won't be forgotten!
I am also thankful for the fact that tomorrow I will see Nelly Mac. She's just had a birthday and so I'm going to see her to celebrate.
Finally I'm thankful for my thighs. They've never been skinny - more shapely, or if you're being rude, thunderous. But according to BBC Breakfast News, this is a good thing. People with skinny legs die younger apparently.
Now, where did I put that chocolate...
