Finding five reasons to be cheerful has been a tough one this week, with everybody in the family being not at their best for one reason or another. I’ve been struggling with the feeling that keeping the house tidy is a bit like pushing water uphill with a sieve. The kids have both been fractious and bad tempered, and Paul has developed an abscess in his tooth and will need to go for root canal surgery. So yeah, not the best week.
In fact, I’ll let Little Man summarise my feelings about the week in a single image:
But that is exactly the purpose of these posts, to pick me up when I’m feeling down, and to remind me that it’s really, really not all that bad.
#1. One of my earlier posts this week, On Heartbreak, touches on the terrible things that can and do happen, and it reminds me how lucky I am that I have my family and that we are all healthy and, grumps aside, happy.
#2. I’ve just been accepted onto another Tesco Orchard program, and for something that I’m excited to try. I love getting free stuff.
#3. It’s very nearly the weekend and soon this week will be over. I have to make sure I carve out some time for myself, because I’ve been feeling the lack of it lately.
#4. Even though I haven’t been following a diet lately, my weight has been stable, and if anything has been creeping veeerrry slowly downwards. That’s something to be happy about, right?
#5. I’m hoping to take the kids to the beach next week if the weather holds out. I love the beach, and while we’ve had the occasional trip to the seaside, we haven’t been properly swimming in the sea for ages. Little Man never has, so that will be an awful lot of fun.
