Woohoo! It's Friday again so soon!

What 5 (or more or fewer) things have been positive for you or made you smile this week?

No negativity
They don't have to be huge things, they could be that you noticed some of the smaller things around you.
It just has to have been positive for you or made you smile.

Mine to get you started:

~ ROAD TRIP! Down to see my Mum and family yesterday! Just the kids and I and I made it!
~ Meeting my lovely niece for the first time yesterday. She's stunning and awesome and happy and squidgy!
~ Putting some things in place so I got some help with things
~ Laughing with Marc and the kids over silly things
~ Getting most of the back to school stuff sorted.
~ Friendship

Your turn!

Rescheduled my trip to see Jaq- 7 more sleeps!!!
Watching a crow use a pedestrian crossing this morning, sooooooo funny.
Spoiling myself to some little things in an online shopping spree.
Sorting all my bills out in advance and knowing that all the money in my bank account for the next couple of weeks is all mine!!!
Making plans for my christmas shopping!!! Spreading out the cost is so much easier.

- coping on my own, barely but I'll take barely

Hi everyone, I'm a little late but I'll give it a go now.

1. I've had a very relaxing week where we actually stayed around for the week and we weren't running and racing around.
2. I've sent off a version of my guiding cv to head office, to see if any groups would like my help with their guide or brownie units.
3. An unexpected weight loss at weight watchers. Now down 9 pounds.
4. My rings are getting big on me (or I'm getting smaller).
5. The friendships that I've made because of getting sick. Thanks everyone for being around.

Surviving now, especially in a very tough week
Having hope for a future
Being cared for a lot
Knowing that I am doing my absolute best instead of giving in to fear
Being able to give help as well as receiving help

Rather late but here's my five.

A visit to The Secret Valley Garden
Tuesday roast turkey and the trimmings at the Old Boat House
