Just in case you're new to my little blog and don't know what the heck Gratituesday is... it's a weekly event where I tell  you about something I'm grateful for. As you can probably tell it all happens on a Tuesday and I'd love you to join in, either by leaving a comment here or making your own Gratituesday post on  your blog.

So this morning, totally out of the blue, I got offered a job. But I turned it down. Then the person doing the offering called me and we had a chat and she's off to see if some of the things I need can be done. I'm not holding my breath but I'm pretty chuffed she's going to try make it happen. Also, I felt like I'd let her down somewhat some years ago so it was doubly nice to find out that not only did she not think that at all but that she's actually quite eager to poach me to her site. There's my little something - totally unexpected, a little bit of a professional ego boost and it made my day.

What's making you feel special, grateful, appreciated or just plain happy today?

Well, I am not grateful for the fact that Dean flew back to work today...but ask me next Tuesday because I will be grateful for the fact that he comes home again that day! Congrats on the job offer and can I add to your little pats on the back by saying I am very appreciative of the work you put into this blog...I love reading it! Kaz x

I love Gratituesday! What a wonderful idea! Our house on the other side of the US finally has a buyer and will close by month's end. Here's to one mortgage payment and one set of household bills and perhaps staying in one place for a while. I need more gratituesday everyday in my life!

Wow, congrats, that sure must make you happy and self confident!
Will you take two jobs eventually?

Hmmm, today I´m grateful for two of my colleagues, both named Thomas btw (a very, very, very often used name over here - in your place, too?) - they made me smile heaps (again, actually as nearly every day).

Yay for having loads of fun doing your "job"!
And I do know that this is not the rule but something very special, something to be grateful for (I know different, too).

I am grateful that, after a couple of days away at my mum's place - which we all really enjoyed - we can come back to OUR house - where the rules are different and things are done the way WE like them!!!
Congrats on the job offer - keeping our fingers crossed that the "things" can happen to make it ideal! Fi

Congrats on the job offer - I hope it comes through!

I'm grateful for... all the planets aligning so well this past month and everything falling into place as we plan to move house! Thank you to my Angels :-)
