MYG stands for ‘mid-year gratitude’, which I’m doing each day this month. You can join me too – let me know what you’re grateful for today in the comments/social media.


I know there was a cat photo yesterday, but Coco the youngest cat has been very affectionate today and I wanted to share; she just looks the best when she sleeps. When my cats are loving and funny it makes me so grateful for the almost indescribable joy that companion animals provide. I know pets aren’t for everyone, and they certainly provide more hassles in life than if you didn’t have any. But the benefits outweigh any downside in my opinion.

I’m also grateful to Emely for rescuing this little purring smoochball from a life on the streets (check out the wonderful work Em does in Sydney’s inner west).
