Some weeks it really is easier than others to find something to smile about. My cup is always half full....I focus on the things I've got and the things I CAN DO but this week seems to have really challenged me so I am making myself write down all the good things for this week...
- Monday was Funday with Jo.....I was lacking my friend Mojo but still managed to start making the two dolls for the twins...I've made so many rag dolls using this pattern now that Mojo wasn't missed!
- Tuesday was Munchkin day....I've always found caring for little ones easy so having a day with those pair was truly wonderful....lots of love and hugs.
- My gorgeous son has been offered a new job.....he has been working as a locksmith and really enjoyed it because he enjoyed the challenge of the job. He has learnt so much in the years he has been working there and has even learnt all the intricacies of access control security systems. Whilst working there he put himself through the first two years of training to be an electrician but to continue to the third year he needed hands on experience. He has just accepted a new job with an electrical company who are willing to put him through the rest of his training.....wahooooo we are so very proud of you Mark.
- Last night we babysat for our daughter Amy. Their other Nanny and Granddad had looked after them from the middle of the afternoon so for about half an hour the three grandchildren had 2 Nannies and 2 Granddads looking after them......Amy had already told us that it takes all 4 of us to do the job the two of them do!! [I think she forgets I had three and the other Nanny had 4 children :-) ]. We had a lovely evening playing with dollies, push chairs, shop etc etc and can proudly say all three then went straight to bed at about 7.30 and not another murmur was heard later.....they are an absolute delight to care for.
So, that's my positives for this week. As you can imagine if you've read the post below it really hasn't been easy to find things to make me smile this week. I would like to say a huge Thank you to all my wonderful blogging friends who left me comments of love and hugs yesterday....you really do make a difference. I am so very blessed to have 'met' you all through blogging.
Here are just a few pics of what I've got to smile about.....
......Steve. Three happy, healthy and full of fun children. Aren't they just adorable?
Here is the latest set of snaps Shell sent me of the twins having 5 minutes of hugs, kisses and giggles together. They are so funny and never fail to make me smile....I am truly blessed.
It really does do you good to focus on the good things in life. Why not have a go and share with me the things that have made you smile this week?
Hope you all have a good weekend.
