Back to blogging as therapy for the next three months, and if you're a regular reader, you'll know why! So there will be lots of reasons to be cheerful, and I'll do my best to keep it interesting. Here's this week's reasons:
The Mini Marathon
This women only race used to be one of the highlights of my year, and I was feeling a bit sad earlier this week as I saw all the happy photos on Facebook from my friends who were able to take part. Then I found this old newspaper cutting and remembered to be thankful for all the things I have achieved. One day I hope to take part again, if my wonky knees and hips can make it around the 10K course..
A bit of R&R
Last Thursday was Smiley's first respite for 7 weeks, and I made the most of the day by taking it off. Well apart from going for a run, doing the laundry, the meals, the cleaning and activities with my son.
Day off type things included wearing a skirt, spending lots of time on here, and going to the hairdressers and the cinema with Angel.
Best of all, when we got back from the hairdressers we found that teenboy had made his own lunch - tuna and sweetcorn sandwiches - and cleared everything away too!
Starting as I mean to go on
Which means lots of joint activities with my son and trips out with him and Smiley. We're getting useful things done - like clearing out his room - and visiting lots of interesting places..

The cure for brain fog
After an appointment yesterday morning I had brain fog. I ran into Tesco and couldn't make any decisions about what I needed to buy, so I decamped to a nearby cafe for an unscheduled coffee and a bun, It was the most relaxing break I had all week and will definitely be repeated.
