Some weeks I think about my blog and muse that nothing really happened this week for me to write about. Nothing of interest.
I refuse to force a blog. The blog has to come from something that’s happened or something I’ve witnessed through the week that makes me want to write about it.
So far. Nothing seems to jump out so I sit here and think what’s happened this week? Nothing?
A few years ago when I started my blog sometimes I’d simply write about what made me smile that week. So a throw back and an exercise that I think is more than worthwhile now and again. A look back at what made a difference to this week.
Hopefully it might encourage you to do the same.
A new walk across the bracken and under pine trees I’d never walked before with someone who makes you feel a better person just by being there
Painting my door and mirror in my new lounge in my new home and not rushing it like I normally do… using masking tape and everything!
Getting to mum’s on my day off who made me chips and egg .. not just any chips but chips cooked Nannas style. Divine.
A meet up with an old friend where lots of wrongs were put right and good feelings were restored
A second tap dancing lesson where I GOT the turn!!!!
Being there at the worst possible moment when someone gets the call that their dad has lost his battle and you can at least offer one of your best hugs and a shoulder x
Playing the piano for the first time in over a year because now I have room for the piano!
A birthday lunch with your ex husband with an invite from his wife and and their son and our son and it’s all just lovely (particularly the quorn sausage breakfast bap!)
Cooking from scratch, lighting some candles and enjoying a few hours away from anything else
Seeing. The emerald reflection of the trees and the greenery at the bottom of the canal swaying in the sunlight which forces you to take a picture.
Some things are worth stopping for.
Sometimes we can think our life and our weeks and days can be quite ordinary but when you break them down they can be simply…..extraordinary.
Happy Sunday to you all
