Celebrate the Small Things: 14 February edition

Greetings all and here we are Celebrating The Small Things on Valentine's day. 

The premise of 'celebrate' is simple: post something to celebrate, however small or large, sign on the linky, hop around and celebrate with others ;) 

What have you all been up to this week? 

I am celebrating: 

  • Making it to the gym! 
  • Chatting with a critique partner over IM - so nice to catch up. 
  • Meeting with my writing group this week - always inspiring. 
  • Valentine's day - I am off out for dinner with the boyf. We are going for a yummy THAI. 
  • Having time for some twitter fun - say hello @vixatthemovies - must get on there more!

Edited to add: CELEBRATING BEING BLITZED! Oh my goodness! How lovely was that?! Thank you! :)

 How about all of you? 

Those of you in couples, hope you have a nice celebration and those of you who are single, hope you are celebrating your singleness! 

Here's the linky:

  1. Getting to the gym is always something to celebrate, as is a date with your boyfriend. I have to admit, doing either seems outside of my capabilities right now...

  2. I'm celebrating getting out of hospital (after a recent, unplanned and thankfully short, stay) and being home with my wife on Valentine's day. Hope you have a great day. Oh, and happy Blitz Day as well!

  3. I'm hoping to celebrate getting the satellite TV working again after the dish was mysteriously realigned in the heavy winds yesterday, and tidying up my wife's French teacher's computer for her. We did see Philomena in English at the nearest cinema yesterday - a rare pleasure here in the sticks in the middle of France!

  4. (Sorry if this is duplicate comment -- I'm on train with flaky wifi) Happy Valentine's Day Blitz! So nice to meet another writer (I write urban fantasy/ mature YA) And I'm *trying* to celebrate getting halfway through a house move from Durham to Glasgow. Mountains of boxes await...

    Happy Blitz Day!

    ReplyDelete
  23. YAY! for making it to the gym. I know how tough finding that motivation can be, especially during these winter months. I'd rather curl up in front of a fire with a glass of wine and a good book. And cheese.

    Happy Blitz Day to you!!!

    ReplyDelete

  79. You have an awesome spirit, obviously - and I also love celebrating the small things so I'll be joining you as soon as I am done commenting for the BLITZ! I hope to get to the gym by the end of this weekend. I did do some tiniest slices of yoga this morning... but I really want to get back into an exercise routine and for me, sometimes it helps to have a place to go and people expecting me. Brava for you! And yay for happy Blitz day!!

  111. Sorry I'm late to the party--was in the hospital most of the day. Enjoyed the article. I'm celebrating a clean pathology report. Whew and yay! I was also teasing my husband this morning, while getting my IV put in, how he takes me to the most unusual places on Valentines Day. :-) He's got a great sense of humor. He did give me a rose when I came out of surgery. What a nice thing to open my eyes to. :-)

    Happy Valentines Day, Vik!
