View Full Version : Friday Fab 5's: Friday 25th August 2017

25-08-17, 08:36 AM
It's Friday! The end of the week, the beginning of the weekend, the last Friday this month - however you choose to look at it it's here! That means it's time for the Fab 5's!

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

No negativity please, or it will be removed ;)
Remember - this isn't about scaling physical mountains necessarily, it's about those victories which are yours.

Mine to get you started:

~ Fantastic GCSE results from B! All systems go for 'A' Levels!
~ Help, support and friendship
~ Getting the FB page back and sorted
~ Making better choices for myself
~ Fairy lights in the garden! :)

Your turn!

Managed to hold it together yesterday when preparations weren't going as well as expected.
Survived a few challenging scenarios this week.
Cherries reduced in Tesco to less than half price!
I get to spend time with Jaq today and Angie tomorrow (I will try to be good)

1. STELLA'S HERE!!! (party)
2. I've been on and met people and had an amazing time!!!
3. I feel a lot better about an issue that was bugging me thanks to the wonderful ladies here.
4. Did I mention I'm getting a social life? (giggle)
5. Finally got my diagnosis. It sucks being immunosuppressed but it's been caught before any damage has been done and there is a treatment plan in place so looking on the bright side!

My turn now.

A super delish lunch at the Old Boat house of herb and garlic chicken, and a nice walk home.
Custard Club much fun even without custard.
Bridge very entertaining.
Watching the Rammstein Volkerball DVD and chillin' to Reba McEntire's 50 Greatest Hits CD 1.
Picked up meds and nice lunch at the White horse today (Friday).
Eating home grown spuds, munch, munch, drool, slurp.
