5 Things I’m Grateful for this April (2020)

Here’s my monthly gratitude reflection!

Joining a book club!

This month, I joined a new book club! Surprisingly, I’ve never joined a book club before, so this is pretty exciting. For the month of May, we are reading The Nine-Chambered Heart. If you’d like to take part, follow this instagram account for details. It’s all online, so we will be discussing the book throughout the month via the dedicated instagram post.

You can also vote for what other book I read in May too, here.

 

The Spring Flowers

One thing I love about spring is all the flowers popping up – in the garden, across social media, everywhere! Not only do I love taking photos of them, it’s really lovely to sit and admire them. My favourite is the pink blossom!

 

Video Call

I’m sure we can all relate to this one at the moment – life in isolation wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t have video call. It’s been a lifesaver in terms of seeing friends and family, as well as continuing with seminars for my degree. Even my Grandma is now using it!

 

Playing the Piano!

Playing the piano is something I missed out on whilst at university, but now that I’m home it’s been really nice to play again! I chose a couple new pieces to learn this month, including Lover by Taylor Swift and River Flows in You by Yiruma. At the end of last week, I shared some of my progress over on my instagram!

 

Comedy TV Shows

This month, a new season of Friday Night Dinner, as well as the latest Brooklyn Nine Nine season, has aired on British TV. It’s been great having these shows to watch because they always bring a lot of laughs, and it’s been fun watching them with my Dad and brother!

  1. Yeah I’m grateful too for the selection of TV we have, as bad as that might be to admit but that’s pretty much all I do in the evenings apart from running! It sounds like you’re definitely branching out a bit which is nice, it’s good to see you’re making progress with the piano and able to pick up something you used to really enjoy. Let’s hope you can keep at it once the lockdown eases!

    • Yeah it’s totally okay to be grateful for the small things! TV is a great way to relax and get your mind off of things. Thank you, I hope I can stick with it too! Even if it’s just 10 minutes of practice everyday.

  2. I’m also really grateful for video calls and spring flowers – it’s so lovely seeing all the bright colours! Video calls have absolutely saved my sanity these last few months and have kept me going too. We’ve been watching so much TV at the moment and Brooklyn Nine Nine is one of our favourites! Thank you for sharing, this is a great post 🙂 x

  3. Nice post and these are great things to be thankful for! Are you finding River Flows in You a difficult piece to learn? I started learning the piano only in December, but it is my dream to one day be able to play River Flows in You.

    • Thanks! I found it a little difficult at first but then once you get into it, it’s quite repetitive so easier to play 😊 I think there are different levels of difficulty in terms of what piano sheets you can find. So maybe search for a few!
