Celebrate The Small Things: 23rd January

Greetings! Lexa Cain is now hosting the blog hop Celebrate The Small Things!

To be part of this blog hop, all you have to do is put your name on the linky list on Lexa's Blog, and then post every Friday about something you're grateful  for that week.  It can be about writing or family or school or general life.  This is the funnest and easiest blog hop ever!

Here are my celebrations for this week:

  • Saw James McAvoy in a play in London. He himself was Excellent and Very Close and Took his Shirt Off, for those who are interested.
  • Caught up with my friend at the same time
  • Have a weekend to rest hurrah

Here is the linky I hope if it doesn't appear I will have to work out why:

Celebrate the Small Things: CONTINUES

Hi Everyone!

I have good news: LEXA CAIN has kindly offered to continue to host CELEBRATE THE SMALL THINGS.

It will have a new linky/sign up list so do CHECK OUT HER BLOG and sign up anew!

I will retire the old linky to avoid confusion.

If you aren't aware of this, this is a weekly hop where we celebrate the small things in life - or whatever we fancy from the week gone by.

This week I am celebrating Lexa, kindly offering to take over!

Here's the current linky:

Celebrate the Small Things - anyone want to host?

Greetings everyone.

As you may know every Friday for the last TWO YEARS I have Celebrated the Small Things and many of you have variously joined in over that time.

I have loved doing it, I like the weekly habit of thinking of things to celebrate even when frankly, the week feels a bit rubbish or blah or whathaveyou.

Lately however I have been finding it hard to find the time to hop around everyone's posts, or be sure to join in every week and frankly it has only been kept going with the assistance of my lovely co-hosts who I thank MUCHLY: 

Diana Wilder
LG Keltner @ Writing Off the Edge
Katie @ TheCyborg Mom
CaffeMaggieato @ mscoffeehouse


So this is me saying: I am likely retiring this weekly post. If anyone would like to take over hosting it, just drop me a comment and we can email about the list of names etc. Or happy for someone simply to take it over, even if in new guise. However I can't guarantee joining in, though would love to see it continue and join in if I can.


If nobody can, perhaps we can all endeavour simply to celebrate more when we can. I am certainly going to try to Tweet my celebrations every Friday using #CTST as that feels more manageable.

In the meantime: Here's to all of you and your celebrations, thank you for joining in and reminding me there is ALWAYS something worth celebrating.


Here's the linky, for the records.....

Celebrate The Small Things - 26 December

And so it is time for a Christmas edition of CELEBRATE THE SMALL THINGS.

Traditionally a time of year for goodwill to all men, and so I am celebrating, first, the help my lovely co-hosts have given me this year:

Diana Wilder
LG Keltner @ Writing Off the Edge
Katie @ TheCyborg Mom
CaffeMaggieato @ mscoffeehouse


And secondly, another year of celebrating - thank you to everyone who joins in or comments on my posts here.


It is boxing day here in the UK (and Canada, Australia, I think though happy to stand corrected!) so I am mostly celebrating Christmas with my family.

Wishing good things for all of you.

Celebrate The Small Things - 19 December

Can you believe the date folks? How is it nearly the end of the year? Time flies when you're celebrating...

and it's celebrations time again. We celebrate the small or the big things, whatever size you like!

Thanks to my lovely co-hosts:

Diana Wilder
LG Keltner @ Writing Off the Edge
Katie @ TheCyborg Mom
CaffeMaggieato @ mscoffeehouse


I have actually had a busy stressful week so this is probably a good exercise for me as I am not feel especially celebrate-y but here we go:

  • Roll on Christmas time off. 
  • Three work days until Christmas days off.
  • Did I mention the rest period? You know you're getting older when you don't look forward to toys or gifts or even parties and 'do's', but rather: simply the time off!
How about you?
