    Friday Fab 5's Friday 8th September 2017

    Well it's Friday (woohoo!) so it's time to ask the age old DWD question

    What 5 (or more or fewer) things have made you smile or been positive for you this week?

    Remember, they don't have to be monumental things - it's equally awesome if you've managed to get up, get showered .....
    Also remember - no negativity please. This will be removed.

    Mine to get you started:

    - I've had my sofa raised. Which makes it so much easier to get up and sit down from it
    - spent a lovely morning with my parents
    - seeing friends for coffee and cake
    - Si has got his permanent contract!
    - and, the biggest news, which I haven't told you anything about yet. My parents put their house on the market 2 weeks ago. They've sold it this week, it looks like it's going to go through by mid October. And they're moving back down south!!!!!
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    Hi everyone here are mine:

    1. Galway won the all-Ireland hurling championship last Sunday. It's the first time they've won in 29 years. A great set of lads and they are great role models for everyone.
    2. I've had my mornings to myself since Aisling went back to school. Next week I'll organise myself a little better to have something to do.
    3. I've actually got a lot of work done on the 1st of the Christmas stockings that I'm making this year.
    4. The house is very tidy this week because of all the time I have. It's not been this tidy in ages.
    5. Friendships here. You really are great friends to have in my corner.

    1. Had a great time staying with my auntie at the weekend and got to see some other people I hadn't seen in a while.
    2. Took my parents for coffee and treated my dad to a bacon roll overlooking the seafront to start the first day of their holidays off work together.
    3.Got to collect my little niece from nursery. She's just started this week and it was adorable seeing her in her smart little uniform!
    4. Had a stunning bath yesterday with new bath salts and a rose petal bath bomb.
    5. My weight increased slightly and my blood results were okay so I avoided being admitted to hospital! Woo hoo!
