I’m afraid it’s been another of those weeks, and my heart goes out to several friends who have suffered loss and bereavement, but I’m determined to find some cheerful silver linings and turn some of the bad news into good…
The bad news is I don’t have the time – or interest – to do the garden any more and so it looks like this ↗️.
The good news is it means I’m helping to save the bees apparently.
The bad news is I will have to miss my beloved Tuesday Zumba class for the next few weeks.
The good news is it’s because I’ve finally got some counselling appointments. And I hope to get my Zumba fix from another class or event.
The bad news is my ribs still hurt a bit.
The good news is I have a great excuse not to bother with the vacuuming. I have to ‘rest’ and not do activities that hurt me.
The bad news is the beautiful disabled friendly bungalows B and I saw this week are on sale in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Probably.
You see I’m coming under pressure to defer any house move for now. It is difficult to turn down the chance to live somewhere that B seemed to love (see photo above), with everything we need for the future – apart from a ceiling hoist – already in place. Admittedly I am not convinced by the location – it’s a 20 minute drive from anywhere we might want to go, and public transport is almost non existent.
The good news is we enjoyed a lovely relaxing afternoon in the country including a pit stop at the local cafe where we felt very welcome.
The bad news is I’ve been super busy this week, and am feeling completely overwhelmed again
The good news is that between all the appointments and usual madness I am managing separate outings with each of my young adults. Even if they are for activities like house hunting that may come to nothing!
Let’s hope that next week is better, and head over to Lakes Single Mum for more reasons to be cheerful.
