September already? Wow. I can't believe that we're here already!
So, it's time for me to ask that age old DWD traditional question -

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

Remember, they don't have to be monumental things - it's equally difficult to get up, get showered, get dressed or make sure you've eaten properly this week...
Also remember - no negativity please. This will be removed by me.

Mine to get you started:

~ Got (almost) everything ready for school next week.
~ The amazing kindness shown to B by a complete stranger on ebay.
~ A good dr's appointment!
~ Spending time with our littler people (who incidentally are almost all taller than me now)
~ Grown up hot chocolate!

Over to you! :)

I'll gI've it a go now.

1. I was down a pound and a half this week at ww. Delighted as I ate on the hoof a lot this week.

2. I really enjoyed the first half of this week when I spent a lot of time with Aisling.

3. While I'm sad that the holidays are over, I'm also excited that September has come. It's my first year since getting sick that it's up to me to come up with things to do. It's a long time coming.

4. Galway are in the all-Ireland hurling final on Sunday. I'm getting caught up in all the excitement. No uniform in school today, they could wear the county colours instead.

5. Friendships. Both here and in rl. It's so nice to have somewhere to come to be able to talk about everything in the one place.
