    Friday Fab 5's: 4th December 2015

    Friday again peeps! Same rules as always - no negativity!
    Have a go! No positive is too small to be added to this!

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


    Mine to get you started:

    ~ Putting up our Christmas decorations
    ~ Finishing the presents for my Mum and my little sister
    ~ Laughing together playing Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit
    ~ Good hospital appointments
    ~ Walking Casey

    Your turn!

    I think I can find 5 positives from this week.

    1. Got my first Christmas card this week. (Thanks Paula).
    2. Made and wrote some of my own cards.
    3. Worked on my own attitude this week, and turned a grotty mood into a better one.
    4. Went to visit my mum and dad on Wednesday.
    5. Got some more shopping done.
    6. Thanked God for the friends I've made here.

    I'm up next, in no particular order.

    ~ went to the over 60's luncheon club last Wednesday & had a good time.
    ~ chatted to Stella on skype.
    ~ got my £200 winter heating allowance because I'm over 60.
    ~ had some fun and silliness on the DWD forum.
    ~ took a pic of myself using a tablet (yay first time I've taken a piccy with the new fangled device) and posted it on DWD.
    70 and counting, less of the "Old" call me "Mike"

    Nita, I'm so jealous. I love the Stereophonics, seen them live twice!

    ~ My family
    ~ My handsome Greek
    ~ My best friend
    ~ Having my sister back in my life
    ~ Feeling loved
    ~ Feeling happy
    ~ Feeling inspired
    ~ Managed to write a poem
    ~ Started a sketch
    ~ Thinking about my future rather then taking it one day at a time
    ~ Learning the Greek alphabet
    ~ Knowing that I can tell my Greek anything and he will trust me
    ~ Feeling secure
    ~ Made a cake!
    ~ Thinking of looking for work!


    Wow! I'm on a roll today!

    Well done, all of you!

    - Was up extra early every day this week and managed to be put together before work (still being my pjs at 11 is a result of non-stop calls rather than just being lazy - this was a huge accomplishment as I'm often up for work at 5)
    - Super hits with dinner cooking for the lot
    - Listened to my husband play his guitar and sing several times
    - Was able to get in a few short walks
    - I love the sound of the house early in the morning as night sounds die away and the farm sounds start up and the fire is slowly crackling away
