    Friday Fab 5's: 28th October 2016

    Hooray! It's Friday and it's the last weekday of this half term holiday 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:

    ~ My children being absolutely amazing when our foster dog went back as we prepare for the next one.
    ~ Spending time with my little people.
    ~ The Creative Study Studio taking shape.
    ~ Lots of laughs
    ~ Vegan Christmas selection box

    Your turn!

    The house is getting a bit better.
    Survived a tough day yesterday. Just.
    Having good friends looking out for me.
    Changed a bulb in the kitchen after months so all the lights in the house work again.
    Managed to get my ex to finally speak to the boy's again.

    Stella, you've done awesomely this week
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    - lunch out with eldest
    - dinner with a wonderful friend
    - drove down to Poole for the first time since my accident (my new car is so much easier for me to drive)
    - so proud of my youngest for dealing with something really difficult, so well

    * Getting closer to my youngest
    * Almost finished Dan's sweater
    * Getting out as much as I can
    * Pleased that I'm de-cluttering (hard!)
    * Daughter's much happier....finally cleared her debts!
    Nothing amazing, but it'll do me!

    1. Getting my head in the right place to do some serious pottery work (making highland cows and donkeys)
    2. A friend coming over to help with sorting out the art stuff and moving it to its new home away from the dust of the pottery.
    3. Surviving two manic kids clubs!
    4. Dad's GF being pleased to bits with the donkey I had made and he gave her.
    5. Spending time with H who is doing well with stopping drinking and is so much happier for it.
    I know my limits....I don't pay attention to them, but I know them!
