Hump Day Happiness
Today I am joining in with Naomi's Hump Day Happiness post over at Under the Yardarm, where all the things that have made us smile this week come to the fore...
This is great timing, because I need a little cheering up. I've not had a good week so far. Nothing has gone drastically wrong; I just don't feel upbeat and positive. I think it's because our holiday is nearly upon us, our house extension is about to happen, I'll be turning 30 in a few weeks and I have two manuscripts with publishers.
I know - poor me having all these things to look forward to - but I really suck at waiting, and I often get a bit down when nothing is happening right NOW.
To make matters worse, Abbey is grumpy this week too. She's been a bit sick, so she's clingy, tired and just struggling. She also had the worst tantrum this morning, so I am now sitting here ignoring her. Yep, I'm setting a great example for maturity.
Anyway, they are the reasons I need some cheer... and here are the things making me smile this week:
Steve coming home from a weekend away. It's true, absence really does make the heart grow fonder.
Having breakfast and a long chat with a friend on Sunday.
Playing in the treetops for my niece's birthday party at a high ropes course.
Having hope, for so many things.
