    Fab 5's: 25th November 2016

    Can you believe it's Friday again already? So... It's time to share our FAB 5's!
    The rules are as always
    • Aim for 5, but no upper or lower limit. Each one is celebrated
    • No negativity allowed.
    Mine to get you started:

    ~ Stella. For the fab presents for my middle one ready for 24th December!
    ~ My amazing Rector wanting to help and support Marc and I.
    ~ Stella again for her being brave enough and pushing herself to get to the theatre and call me! It was wonderful to hear you so happy!
    ~ My Dr wanting to kick some proverbial
    ~ Little Lola deciding that she wanted Marc's bandanna and there being nothing he could do to stop her!

    Your turn!
    You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.

    Went to Theatre
    Got stuff moved in the house so I can make the most of my space
    Made a scrummy bread and butter pudding
    Night out with friends
    Plans for a party week before Christmas.

    So proud of you, Stella

    - lovely meal out with my gorgeous little family
    - going back up to 2 shifts at work, and how glad the team were to have me back on the Thursday shift
    - having a really busy day yesterday, and surviving
    - Jess doing fabulously well at school
    - Jess's RE teacher telling me that Jess regularly discusses my views and beliefs in class, and that Jess respects me
    - Being told Jess is the 'Star Pupil' in her maths class!

    Having a good week,

    1. All the support from everyone here, thanks everyone.
    2. Having my 'graduation' from the day centre. It feels strange and wonderful at the same time.
    3. Group was okay this week. I'd no problems there.
    4. The doctor telling me that there is nothing to change meds wise.
    5. All the little people in school having a warm welcome back for me this week. It made me feel great.

    Tough week but here we go...

    1. Survived the week
    2. Notified today we are getting a bonus but only half what we had last year, still its a bonus and will help.
    3. Told how much value I am to the company and finding out 2 of my projects I worked hard on have been in top 10 of most profitable projects for the company.
    4. Walked into work every day despite it being a little chilly
    5. Enjoying Westworld series.
    6. Its the weekend, sleep in, relax and chill.

    These are all amazing.

    Jarre - that's really cool that you've been so profitable for the company!
