Well I feel that this task has been somewhat done as this is all I have been doing for the last 9 days, sharing my gratitude with all of you (or those of you that read this blog anyway!). However I thought today I would choose something a bit different, but for which I am forever grateful for each and every day.
I am grateful to be a Melburnian. This is of heightened importance right now considering that I am moving home next weekend after have whinged and complained for the last 2 and a half years that Sydney is just so NOT Melbourne enough for my tastes.
I am so thankful for the fact that I will now be able to have a decent coffee, for the first time in 2 and a half years I dare say (no offense to you Sydney, I fear us Melburnians have just developed a taste for excellence based on the coffee experience that makes our city awesome).
I am thankful for being able to change attires during the day according to sudden drops or elevations in temperature. How could it not be deemed perfect that when it gets too hot, it cools down within the hour. When the sun is shining a little too brightly, storm clouds will roll in. When the day is dark and gloomy, all of a sudden comes the light and the formation of a rainbow. How could one not be grateful for these instant mood changers?
I give such great thanks to the fact that us Melburnians are so true to ourselves and feel free and happy to express our sentiments and practice our talents in public, proudly and unapologetically.
And lastly, I give thanks to all the Brunswick hipsters out there, you above all make me smile so widely!
