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! )
