So this is a place to share the good things that happen in our lives. They don't have to be huge even little tiny good things are good.
I enjoy drawing comics, and I did a lot of that today. I am proud of how far I have come with it.
Got up at 8 and had a swift 7-mile cycle ride, followed by a swim in the sea. The sea is just right at the moment: still and warm. A good way to start the day, at least. Hopefully, it'll carry on the same way...
I’m up and out of bed, I’ve had a drink of water and showered (fluke, my son turned up!) and now I’m about to experience my first dragon boat racing event. I have little idea of what to expect but the sun is shinning and I’m outside enjoying it. I don’t think I saw day light last year, let alone spend any time in the sun. So today is a good day
Just rung an opticians nearby to see if they have a couple of frames that I'd like to try for my new glasses - and they do! So I'm off over to Faversham to try them. I had an eye test the other week and the prescription has changed slightly, so it'll be good to get some new glasses. I also got a letter today telling me I'm entitled to Working Tax Credits, which will help tremendously. They paid me a backlog - enough to pay for the glasses!
Sunday: I had a swim at high tide this morning - 8.30. The water was wonderful!
Afterwards, I went to the opticians and ordered my new glasses. They were doing a 2 for the price of 1 offer, so I ordered one pair with plain lenses and the other pair with transition lenses for sunlight and driving.
Now... I'm going to sit and read some Raymond Chandler stories
I put up a curtain rail today all by myself. Well not quite all by myself, hubby was there directing me but I did all the work by myself. I even got to drill 6 holes in the wall.
I found this, which made me smile:
Me again. Cute picture. This is myself all over.
...However, I also post in this Thread to say a "good" thing - for me, anyway... and that is the fact that it is a bit COOLER, now! (Still no rain, though...)
The darkness sounds relaxing, but I don't like using public toilets as lots of other people use them and they look a mess lol.
We have a separate toilet that has an automatic light, if you sit still it goes out quite quickly,,,,,just a suggestion if using the second one!
So sudden darkness and minimal back ground noise,,quite relaxing and a chance to just regather oneself before going back into the arena of life.
I could say to @Possibly Austistic that going deep into my own head is dark and peaceful but although it is sometimes in a dark area it certainly isn’t quite! Total opposite in fact,,,it never stops and at this time far to much flicking of switches as I struggle to just keep going.
