Grateful.... for Drink!

Now most people that know me, know that I like (ok, really like) a glass of wine.  This however is not going to be a post about how I am grateful for wine. Because, sometimes, I am really not grateful for wine.

The drink I am most grateful for is.... (drum roll please!) ....Milkshakes!  Yes, milkshakes.

Milkshakes are like a universal symbol for the good life.  My kids love milkshakes, I love milkshakes, and my husband is also partial to one every now and again.  They remind me of being a kid, and of "Happy Days" and the innocence of a time gone by.

Last week I had a +1 after school, a lovely girl from M1's grade (yes a girl and they have no hang ups about hanging out together...).  They normally get on well, but on this occasion, what really made me smile, is they made a milkshake together.

They negotiated what should go in it, who should put what in etc etc.  For my M1, who is bit of a know it all control freak (but yes I mostly love him for it), to see him interact so seamlessly with this beautiful Miss 8 made my heart sing.

So, this week, I am grateful for drink, but especially milkshakes - chocolate of course. Click here to see who else is Grateful for Drink at the Kidspot 52 weeks of Grateful.  What is your favourite flavour?

  1. Me too, me too! Chocolate malted milkshake.

    When I was young, my father used to take us to the milk shop for a 'malt' (as he calls them) as a treat. Such happy memories. x


I love reading your comments.... thanks!
