There’s so much to be thankful for.

imageWe have had a busy couple of days as while Roy was off work we have done some running about Christmas shopping. One thing for sure this year we are not wasting money on any presents that will end up on a car boot sale in months or years to come for a £1.00

We had a lovely trip to Bridgemere Garden Centre on Friday. Everyone seems to be getting in the Christmas spirit. Very pretty seeing all the lights and Christmas trees. There was a traditional nativity all set out and then when I turned around there was a slightly more extraordinary one!image

Roy is busy today sorting out the TV today. A few trips to B&Q and Maplin yesterday to get all the sockets, adaptors or whatever it is he needed to sort out the little challenge of the TV reception. At the moment the aerial is stuck on a 3 ft pole (warning to anyway low flying aircraft passing). The reason for this is that there is a big hill at the side of the boat and believe me we have tried every degree/angle possible to get a signal but the hill is in the way. Having a 3 ft pole in high winds is not very good so we have to take it down cause of it blowing off……….luckily the wind subsided last night so we did get to watch X Factor. Talk about that in a bit though. Anyway, as I starting to really waffle and go off the subject slightly the only cure for the TV reception was to either go out at night with a shovel and dig all the hill away or to buy a Vu Qube. The Vu Qube it was!! Roy is busy connecting everything up at the moment. I am keeping out the way 😉 Hopefully it will all be sorted for the X Factor result/Final tonight.

Right, getting back to X Factor.I was gutted Luke left last night as I think he is quite unique and puts his own spin on the songs he sings. I am sure he will still have a good future ahead of him. You normally find the runners up do better than the winner as they have a year planned out for them and personally I don’t think being a supporting act to Beyonce for the winner is much of a prize as surely the winner of X Factor wants to be doing their own shows and not be a supporting act to someone else if you understand what I mean. I think the acts have already made a name for themselves and I wish them all well but I will be supporting Sam Bailey tonight as she has a fantastic voice.

Talking about singing………that’s a strange phrase……anyway I have been listening to Josh Groban today, probably annoying all the neighbours whilst I sing along. It is the Christmas album “NOEL”.

I just love really listening to each word………..what I mean by this is listening to the true meaning of the song. It inspires me to start song writing again. Roy is actually thinking of getting a keyboard for us both to play on and so that I can start song writing again. It was one way I used to express my thoughts and feeling through my songs. Anyway, I am getting a bit deep now. The song I really loved listening was called Thankful. If you read the words and really take in the meaning of them I think they are beautiful. My kind of song!

“Thankful”

Somedays we forget
To look around us
Somedays we can’t see
The joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give.

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be.
And on this day we hope for
What we still can’t see.
It’s up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for.

Look beyond ourselves
There’s so much sorrow
It’s way too late to say
I’ll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth
It’s so long overdue

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And every day we hope for
What we still can’t see
It’s up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for.

Even with our differences
There is a place we’re all connected
Each of us can find each other’s light

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can’t see
It’s up to us to be the change
And even though this world needs so much more

There’s so much to be thankful for

Whilst I have been busy typing away Roy has got the TV all up and running……….there are wires coming through all the port hole windows at the moment but he has done that for a purpose to check everything is working before he then hides all the wiring! Good Man!! Oooohhhh sound as well………he has a very happy smile on his face J

Going to enjoy the rest of my Sunday now. Hope you all do too!
