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 am finally getting round to a few things, saw the GP.about my cough and have an appointment to check for asthma on the 14th August. After a lot of grief, including the fact that our phone and net provider decided to do maintenance just as a new media box was being set up here, I can now have both video and dvd....still have to switch cables though.
And I found an excellent quality ghost film on You Tube here:
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:
Clear headed with memory fully restored at 10:30am today. Joy.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment” Ralph Waldo Emerson.
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...)
