    Cool Friday Fab 5's: 21st October 2016

    Hooray! It's Friday and it's the last day of this half term in my house so it's time for the Friday Fab 5's!
    Can you list 5 (or more, or less) things which have been positive for you or made you smile this week?
    No negativity please!
    Remember every small thing is just as valid!

    Mine to get you started:

    ~ The nomination from Stella for a nationwide mental health award. Am still in shock.
    ~ So many awesomely lovely comments with regard to the above.
    ~ New car!
    ~ Last day of half term today so my babies are at home all week next week!
    ~ Seeing my friend who had major spinal surgery and is doing amazingly well.

    Your turn!!

    Rendering Suzi speechless for the first time since I've known her
    Making it through a difficult weekend thanks to a couple of very special people on the forum.
    Signed up for a further 7 weeks of counselling to try and get my head straight
    Invited a friend round for coffee (hey it's a brave thing for me)
    Made an appointment to sort out ESA forms straight away instead of sitting and worrying about it

    4) GW has completed blowing his coat and isn't dropping balls of hair everytime he moves! YAY
    5) Talked to my friend who is currently going through radiation after a double mastectomy. she is doing well as can be expected, and we are going to see the scary movie I was in tomorrow night.

    Well its been a while but I will try

    1. Being rescued by a special friend who saw the terrible state I was in last Friday and fought the doctors surgery to get me an appointment that afternoon then took me and sat with me for several hours whilst they tried to sort things out.
    2. Getting a new mattress. - It only took 15 years for me to get round to replacing a mattress that was second hand when I got it!
    3. Getting a glass display case with light for the studio which makes my work look so professional! (and already sold several pieces because of it)
    4. All the hugs I got from my students when I fessed up to why I had not been able to take some of the classes last week.
    5. Cold nights that give me an excuse to light the fire and sit in the firelight with just a side lamp on whilst drawing, listening to audio books and the radio and eating chocolate.
    I know my limits....I don't pay attention to them, but I know them!

    Wow Pen! I'm so proud of you for telling your students why you weren't able to teach! And you told everything to your friend. AMAZING!

    Let's see what I can do...
    1) Had a lovely time today taking little jen out
    2) My SIL Rod has an interview with the council. If he's successful it'll mean they won't have to worry financially over the winter.
    3) Talked to my son twice this week..it's so good to be getting closer to him.
    4) Spoke to a cousin I haven't been in touch with for 15 years this week. The chemo seems to be working on her ovarian cancer!
    5) Got another viewing for the house tomorrow morning....fingers crossed!

    My go..
    1. Got my go ahead from the principal to start in the school after the mid-term break.
    2. I'm on my Summer holidays in Dublin (I know it's a bit late, but better late than never).
    3. Got some great support from every one here in the last week.
    4. Really enjoyed my day out in the knitting and stitching show today with my sister.
    5. Thanks for the friendships you guys. I really appreciate it even if I don't always say it.
