While at work on Friday, I realised that I was definitely sick. My throat had been scratchy for a few days and I had felt that I was fighting the onset of a cold. During the day I used so many tissues that one of my students commented on it! After school, I headed immediately for my bedroom when I reached home. Saturday a lot of time was spent under the covers sleeping. When awake, I felt the need to continue lying down and yet did not wish to read.
With the company of my husband, I switched on the TV and settled down to watch a show on Netflix. Two years ago we discovered streaming films and TV shows through Netflix – and loved the choice available. In addition, we lovedthe fact that we could watch things at our own pace. It is true we do not see things as they are aired (and there are certain programmes we do not see at all) but I still enjoy the convenience of it. We do not watch a lot of TV; but when we do, we want to be able to watch something good and not channel surf until we find something worth spending our time on.
This week I was grateful for Netflix. It helped to relieve my boredom while lying in bed during a period of recuperation.
What have you been grateful for this week?

Thank you for last week’s contributions. I enjoy reading what others are grateful for – the posts make me think of other things I am happy to have in my life.
