I've had a tough few weeks and to be honest I've felt pretty crap. We lost our Nan four weeks ago and I've taken it pretty bad. Out of all my Grandparents Nanny 'H' (or Super Nanny as my kids called her - long story but basically they thought my Grandad was superman so they were nicknamed Super Nanny & Grandad) I feel her loss the most. After losing my Mum (Her Daughter) five years ago me & Nan really bonded, she knew what it felt like to lose a Mum and I felt a real understanding of my heartache from her. So this week I really feel the need to focus on reasons to be cheerful.
1) I have many many happy and funny memories of my Nan and I'm lucky to have had her in my life for such a long time. Nan lived a long and good life and was loved by many.
2) Papa bought me a new camera for Christmas and to cheer me up he gave it me early. I have wanted to venture into the DSLR scene for a long time time so I've been so excited about my new pressie and been practising like a mad woman. Thanks Papa.
3) I finally managed to recover my corner dining suite in some bargain fabric that I picked up for a fiver a metre. I bought this corner suite about six months ago from eBay for £40 and it was covered in a really drab navy fabric that looked like it belonged on a tube train. I'm very happy with the finished result.
