I had a bit of a dodgy start to this week and by the time we got to yesterday I was feeling really low. I felt as though certain people were trying their best to grind me down. Every little thing seemed to get to me and I felt a bit weepy. It is so unlike me to let negative thoughts creep in but I know why it is.
Apart from a few irritants that usually I can easily shrug off with ease our Nan was moved to a hospice. Even though she is getting on a bit now it doesn't make it any easier and I feel really sad that we are facing the possibility of losing our strong, funny and wise ole Nan. We are also approaching the week we lost our Mum and I always feel really anxious as we get closer to the anniversary date.
So joining in with this weeks #R2BC over at the lovely Michelles place is just what I need to remind me that I still have a lot of good things going on in my life.
Firstly, I ordered new garden tools and lots of lovely plants for the garden makeover competition that I've been asked to take part in. I feel so lucky to be part of it and it really has kept my spirits up during a difficult week.
Also I am so blessed to live in such a lovely place, with lovely neighbours who Papa and I have become good friends with. We have only been here two years and during that time everyone has made us really welcome. We have lived in places before where the neighbours are not so nice so I am really grateful to my fab neighbours for just being fab.
I am so grateful for my hardworking and supportive husband. Whenever I feel down in the dumps Papa puts things in to perspective for me. He shows me that some things are just not worth feeling stressed out about. He often reminds me that ife is too short to feel anxiety about things we cant change. He then makes me laugh until my ribs hurt.
