3/52 Weeks of Gratitude

52 Weeks of More Gratitude. More hope. More love.

I found this beautiful dragonfly hiding in the corner of a room. Whilst it's soul had long fled its body and it was lifeless, I was grateful to have been able to explore the details of its wings and shape. 

You've got to love when something just falls into place. One week day when I was trying to remember how to to make turkey meatballs I found these two cookbooks which I was certain would have meatball recipes. And low and behold on the inside cover of 'Greek Cooking', staring at me as I turned the page, was my Mum's personal note. Meatballs! And whilst it was a recipe for Keftethes (which uses beef) it was perfect as I wasn't actually searching for a recipe with turkey as I knew that would be too hard to find. I was looking for general 'how to meatball' method and flavours. They were good!

And lastly, I'm very grateful for news of a new job! Dad and I clapped our hands in delight. 


  1. Congratulations on your new job! And on getting up to date with your gratitude posts :) I love the photo of the Margaret Fulton cookbook, I kept my mum's original edition of Margaret's first cookbook and I kept it because it had my mum's handwriting inside the cover where she had written a recipe down. Wishing you all things wonderful for this year Nat, I'm looking forward to hearing more about your wellness project x
