I've been going through a really rough couple of months. My five brothers and I have been badly let down by some family members who we thought really cared about our well being. It is devastating when you discover that people you hold in high regard turn out not to be who you thought. I can't even begin to express to you how broken my heart feels...It will take a long time to get over so at the moment I really need Michelle's #R2BC to keep me positive.
1) I won a bloggers garden makeover competition today and I'm so thrilled...It really has lifted my spirits. I have won two tickets to the Chelsea flower show next year and a whole day with the Daily Telegraphs gardening expert Helen Yemm. I'm so so thrilled.
2) We had a super Halloween. I love it when the kids get all excited and start planning what they want to wear for Trick or Treat, make decorations and carve the pumpkins. The past two years we have made a mooning pumpkin man. He is so much fun and we always get lots of finger pointing and many laughs from passers by. Last year we even had strangers in cars pulling up outside and taking photos of him. great fun...Halloween always brings a smile to my face.
3) We had our Granddaughter staying with us for half term up until Monday night and she always brings me so much Joy and makes all our lives complete. We adore her...she is bright, beautiful and hilarious. Of course she keeps us on our toes...what five year old doesn't! I'm exhausted by the time she goes home...but its a good exhausted and having her in our lives is a fabulous feeling.
