Shoving my Pollyanna hat firmly back in my head, here’s a few reasons to be cheerful…
…I fixed the TV screen. It was infused with a brilliant shade of pink. My disabled daughter thought it was pretty, but it rather spoilt some of the programmes I enjoy while I’m seeing to her needs.. (Hint: it was actually easy to fix 😂😂)
…When friends ask ” if there’s any way we can help”, and you know they really mean it.
…I had to go to the dentist to order a new mouthguard to stop me grinding my teeth away to rubble at night (carer stress) and not only did he clean them, but he managed to remove a little brown streak on an incisor that had been bothering me for years.
…I finally tackled my shoulder pain and went to a sports injury clinic where an hour of lying on a physio table and submitting to needles and deep massage felt like pampering. As I’ve said before, it’s amazing how your perspective on things can change!
…B and I went to nearby Farmleigh House recently, somewhere we’ve visited many many times before. It really is a magical place, so to make it more entertaining for me, I began picking out features that fitted classic children’s stories. So, ta da, I give you Rapunzel’s Tower, Treebeard (an Ent from The Lord of The Rings) and Professor Kirke’s house where Lucy found the Wardrobe that led to Narnia….
