    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.

    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"
