Its too easy to dwell on the negatives in life, isn't it? So what am I thankful for this week?
Well, I have fabulous memories of our lovely relaxing family holiday in Naples & Miami in Florida which we got back from last week. The photos are printed and the scrapping has commenced.
Then , there is my lovely garden and the lovely weather that we returned to. And not to forget our brilliant neighbours who watered the plants when we were away.
And Beth and I went to the East Kilbride Crop last Saturday and we are thankful for the lovely friends we have there. Beth as usual was very productive, I produced one Lo and drank lots of tea and did lots of chatting.
I hope Suzy liked her little goody bag from the US. And I guess I should be thankful for the inroduction to neocolours, inktense pencils and Art, Doodle , Love - though my purse may not be! Photos of masterpieces to follow.
Work has been hectic since I got back at the helm on Monday but I do like my job and have enjoyed the week. I am part of a great team! We went climbing trees and swinging from zip slides at Go Ape. I loved the day but didnt complete the course - but the 480m zipslide above the trees and waterfall with gorgeous views over Aberfoyle's gorgeous country side. See if you can spot me on the photo!
I am also grateful to have read another two excellent books this week. I have read The Secrets of the Lighthouse by Santa Montefiore and The Light Between Oceans by ML Stedman. I have also chatted to my favourite authors on twitter.
And finally, I am grateful that the bit of a health scare that I had has been cleared up. I had a recall after my mammogram and I was quite worried. After a couple of worrying hours at the clinic this morning, all was sorted and there are no issues. I am very grateful for the kindness of the staff at the West of Scotland Breast Screening Centre in Glasgow.
I hope this is ok for my first go - any comments welcomed!!!
