    Friday Fab 5's: Friday 21st August 2015

    It's Friday, so fab 5's time! So... What 5 (or more or less) things have made you smile/been positive for you this week?

    Here is mine to get us all started

    1 Fun with my pup
    2 My children being happy
    3 A lovely thank you letter from a charity I donated to
    4 Having a laugh with the other stall holders on the market
    5 All the cats now getting on after introducing the kitten fully a few weeks ago

    ~ Possible new job opportunity, something far more suited to me than previous roles
    ~ The hearth has been put in on the fireplace (its still drying 3 days later)
    ~ Nice meal with OH's friend after slaving over the hearth
    ~ Nice afternoon with my grandfather last weekend
    ~ Picnic and a walk through wild flowers last Saturday
    ~ Everyone was really nice last Friday when I left my job

    Here goes :-)

    Another fun week of meeting some new great kids and having some regular returners at the clay sessions. (and generally meeting lots of lovely people)
    Getting another wall of my bedroom finished (Just the wall with the window to finish painting now)
    Starting to hang some of my paintings up at last
    Getting my certificate from the university to show I have a BA with Honours, First Class.
    Having my daughter around to help with the clearing up between classes so I have a bit more time to eat and relax.
    I know my limits....I don't pay attention to them, but I know them!

    - 14th wedding anniversary
    - spoilt by my gorgeous hubby
    - spent some quality time with my poorly friend
    - youngest thoroughly cleaned her bedroom and finally got the new furniture she was promised (it's spotless)
    - being debt free

    I'm still not totally convinced that I am even worthy of ESA but the lady who helped me with my forms last week seems to think I tick all the right boxes so thought I'd give it a go. Still struggling with the concept of how much help I actually do need.

    Just had my 5 a day and I feel great.
    1. Sausage
    2. Bacon
    3. Eggs
    4. Beans
    5. Fried slice. And a cup of tea of course.

    A popsicle stick makes a great bookmark. But eat the popsicle first. Don't make the same mistake I did.

    I get that, but ESA and PiP are there to support us. You deserve the support

    Sitting in a cafe with a lovely hot chocolate and flapjack watching the world go by
    Found the perfect skirt for the fancy dress outfit. Just looking at some other bits to decorate it with. Makes it cheaper and easier this way.
    Enlightening conversation at work with a colleague. A new way of thinking
    Saying what I needed to say in order to take some negative influences from my life
    Ben Howard on my iPod as I shop keeps me relaxed before bereavement counselling tonight
    My wonderful extended family who stand by me during hard times.
