Things that have made me smile this week

Lots of lovely little things have made me smile this week, such as …..

Parents evening at school and reading a piece of work by my son entitled ‘My Role Model ‘  which was me! He writes about how I taught him all about eating chocolate and tennis!  But also how I am always there for him, never give up on him, am loyal and a great friend. He wrote I was  lovely too, just like his grandma had been and that he thinks that is where I got my values from…. Oh I shed a few tears!

I put up a frame for sweet peas all by myself. I am not known as being ‘practical’ Seriously I struggle to put on the TV, but I did this all be myself and I was proud!

I have started on an exercise and fitness programme to try and improve my health and this has made me happy. I feel I am doing something about my recent physical challenges rather than letting them overwhelm me.

I have started reading great books again. For a long while since being a mum  time to read evaded me . well not so much time perhaps as I have read lots of ‘chick lit’ But time to read reflect and think about what I am reading has stopped me reading good literature and there are so many books I have wanted to read. I have begun a 100 writers challenge where in the next 2 years I am going to attempt to read books by some seriously fabulous authors. And I have begun and its rather wonderful to be reading again.

And lastly I am grateful and happy that when both my kids were poorly this week I could just keep them home with me without a worry. Working for myself brings uncertainty, sometime long hours and anxiety but when it comes to my kids it affords me a flexibility that is just wonderful. I am lucky to be a blogger.

It’s been  good week in many ways…( none of which required spending cash! )

    There are usually good things in all weeks and it is great to focus on them. I admire you so much for taking on your physical challenges rather than letting your illness get on top of you, this is not an easy thing to achieve. I have been taking part in Cafe Bebe’s #embracehappy project and looking for the good really helps my perspective xxxx

    Well done for concentrating on all the positive things, it’s not easy to do but it makes things feel a lot better. What a lovely thing for your son to write, I’m not surprised that it made you emotional! 馃檪

    Oh Becky you are a complete inspiration! So many people would let everything get on top of them, but the ability to stop and look at the positive is a wonderful one (and not always easy I know). For years I’ve been a member of an online discussion forum and there was a thread there which rans for years (and may still be there I’ll have to look) where people went on and just listed five things that had made them smile that day. You had to have five and it didn’t matter if they were big or small. Focussing like that helped so many of us realise that even on the darkest days there are some wonderful moments.

    Oh my word, how lovely of your little boy to write those things- you must have been so touched…we have parents evening tonight- can’t wait to hear what the keyworkers have to say about our girls.
    I’m glad you are feeling a bit perkier, the clocks going forward will probably help with that too.
    Have a happy weekend!

    Odszkodowanie na rzecz taks贸wkarzy

    W przyk艂adu wulgarnej st艂uczki, zwyczajowo nie ma wi臋kszych problem贸w w niewielkiej odleg艂o艣ci urz膮dzaniu formalno艣ci. Szczeg贸lnie, o ile obydwie paginy podo艂aj膮 si臋 om贸wi膰. Nieraz prawdopodobnie trafi膰 wprawdzie a偶 do nietypowej sytuacji, podczas gdy sprawc膮 kolizji istnieje zwierzyna 艂owna ewentualnie samolot.
    Taka nietypowa stosunki zdarzy艂a si臋 ostatnio. Startuj膮cy p艂atowiec zaszed艂 usterce. W s膮siedztwie znikomym por贸偶nienie ruszy艂 pal膮co zwia膰, co sprowadzi艂o zniszczenia jad膮cych pojazd贸w. Bez w膮tpliwo艣ci, rodzicielki t臋dy do wykonywania ze krzywd膮 zupe艂n膮. Pojzad na wskro艣 nie transmituje si臋 do regeneracji. Proste powietrzne maj膮 konieczne ubezpieczenia.
