    Friday Fab 5's: 11th November 2016

    Armistice Day. Seems a good thing to be doing the fab 5s on a day when we think back and remember those who have fallen, been physically injured or been mentally scared by conflict.

    So... What 5 or more or less things have been positive or made you smile this week

    Mine are:

    ~ An apology from the DWP.
    ~ The most amazing love and support from here.
    ~ Brilliant reports home.
    ~ Little Lola being completely bonkers and making us smile and laugh so hard our sides hurt.

    Your turn

    1. Getting a big hug from Michelle as I was leaving on Wednesday, to wish me luck for starting in school.
    2. My mum being in good form when I went to visit this week.
    3. Aisling being Aisling and making me laugh.
    4. Telling the girls that I'm okay about finishing up in the day centre.
    5. I am so grateful for all the help and support that I get from everyone here. I wouldn't be here without it.

    Hiding under the Duvet
    Having such amazing supportive friends
    The news of having a two week break from counselling
    Ticket booked to see Rent at Malvern theatres
    Almost finished my Christmas shopping
    After 20 months I finally put down the rug I bought for the living room

    Ok, it's been a tough week but here goes

    - starting my Christmas shopping
    - lovely birthday meal out for my gorgeous hubby
    - getting to church last Sunday evening
    - vet confirming Luna is doing much better on her pain meds
    - getting my tragus pierced on an impulse
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    I'm late too.
    • Lunch at the Woodside expensive but tasty
    • Custard Club another delicious lunch
    • Lunch at the White Horse another good lunch
    • My new Hi-Fi rack
    • Listening to some Jim Reeves LP's on my new turntable.
    70 and counting, less of the "Old" call me "Mike"

    Et je m'envole, vole, vole, vole, vole, vole. Que d'espérance.
    Mine are here:
    - coming back at work with new forces;
    - better management of things;
    - handing my documents at Ministry for exam;
    - enjoying good weather and a good radiator brought inside;
    - not giving up my other projects.
