Another week and I’m not feeling particularly thankful or cheerful.
This is a house of lurgy today; just scrawl a red cross on our door and have done with it. Wee Girl was sick in the night, and this morning has been a whirl of soaking bedclothes, tidying up and catching up with linky blog-visits.
Wee Girl has been asleep for half the morning, spent the other half the morning snuggled up next to me on the sofa, watching CBeebies, and has finally gone back to bed to sleep for a bit more. It’s always a bad sign when she doesn’t want breakfast.
So it’s been another bit of a struggle this week, but I’ve still managed to find another five things which I’m truly grateful for and which make me just the slightest bit more cheerful.
#1. My spelling and grammar is fairly good. It’s not perfect: I make typos like everyone else, but on the whole I understand the basic rules.
#2. It’s been a long time since our last bout of proper sickness (except for colds, although now that I think about it, we haven’t had many of those either), so we’ve been lucky.
#3. I’ve been blogging more or less regularly for a month.
#4. CBeebies. Thank fuck for CBeebies.
#5. And finally, I have a new camera. It’s my first DSLR, a Nikon D3200, which is said to be excellent for beginners. I’m always excited about learning new things, and I’m hoping that the photos on this blog will slowly, gradually start to improve. Particularly my food photos.I can’t wait to get the basics mastered and start having a play around. Watch this space.
What’s cheering you up today?
