    Cool Friday Fab 5's: 19th August 2016

    Morning Chaps and Chapesses!

    It's Friday, so it's time for me to ask that lengendary question of DWD history...

    What 5 things have made you happy or been positive for you this week?

    Remember:
    They don't have to be really massive things to anyone else, spotting a lovely flower or a nice dinner or a conversation are all just as important as scaling Mount Everest in just your orange underpants and Stella's cloak.....

    Mine to get you started:

    ~ Listening to the Princesses playing in the pool
    ~ Watching Marc and B play computer games together
    ~ Watching H talk to Marc about a little book she had found when we were are podiatry about mental health and her show him the parts that she thought might help him and help her to understand things a bit better.
    ~ My awesome friends here.
    ~ Watching Marc bath all 4 dogs yesterday lol......

    Your turn!

    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    Well, I've had a lovely time away with hubby
    I stayed with my lovely cousin and we caught up on life and laughed
    Met up with other relatives too. I dreaded it, but I did it! It was great.
    Cuddled my little Jen. She's started school and showed me her books.
    Realised that family is so important, even if they can't be with me.
    Lovely to be back with my DWD family too. I feel like you've been with me all my life! I feel so much better because of it.
    I'm excited because I've been asked to do something that's a privilege....Sshh!

    1) Had a good night Tuesday at Dance Class - I seem to be adept at Tango though I can't East Coast swing to save my life.
    2) Ate out with my friends Nikki and Dennis, the dance instructors, and another student and there were a lot of laughs
    3) Became friends with another student, a lovely girl named Cassidy who is 18, a musical prodigy and a certified genius. It was her last dance class before going away to school
    4) Had an after dance class date with Valerie Thursday and we walked around a lake holding hands
    5) My dog, GW. He's always a blessing.
