2. Thanks for that rainy day in London 18 years ago when I put my two black rubbish bags of clothes behind a friend's couch and said: "I'll just be here a couple of nights until I find a new flat." Reader, I never moved out.

4. Thanks for kids who are who they are. Cy, nine, likes nothing more than to slip on a bow tie. But he also insists on cycling to tennis along a dangerous main road: "I love to feel the air in my face and think about my dreams" he told me today.

6. And finally I give thanks to you, all of you, for reading and for commenting. There is no doubt in my mind that your comments are the best thing about this blog. How many times have I heard from people: "Oh I always read the comments first, they crack me up." You guys are Tawesome.
Now your turn - what are you giving thanks for today?
