This isn't an easy one to write this week..
 
Between PMT, the pain I'm in every day and the problems we're having financially, I'm not feeling very cheerful!
 
However, we have to look at the good in our lives or we would just mope constantly, and it is easy to find the good I have.
 

1. Well that's easy....My wonderful husband.
He's had a really rough week in work, he's had bricks thrown through the windows of his bus, and been told he has to work on a rest day, with very little notice. Not going on that day, as the company he works for broke their own policy, has led to him having a disciplinary tomorrow. However, through all of this, he still comes home with a smile and lots of loving for us. He says home is the place he is happiest, how can I not be incredibly happy about that after 23 years together??
 
2. Home cooking. I know! The simplest things! But this week I'm really not exaggerating about how dire the financial situation is. I can't even afford to tax my car! However thanks to living in a country where you can get foods quite cheaply if you shop around, and we have gas and electric (albeit VERY expensive) running to our homes. Thanks to these things I was able to put a little tea party of bat cookies, and halloween cakes for my children last night, and I can feed them every day. For this I am very grateful.
 
3. My weekend visitor. I had the lovely mama owl's daughter to visit over the weekend. She and K are close, thanks to things like BBM (not that I understand that at all). It just gives me such joy to see the next generation bonding, proving that distance means nothing. Also it was nice to have another female around for a few days! Even if she is just as untidy as my teen! ha ha.
 
See its possible to find things to make you happy, even in difficult times we find something to smile about. That's what families are for!

  8. Well done on looking for the positive.
    I don't know what your financial issues are but do check out free advice from someone like National Debtline, Consumer Credit Counselling Service, Citizens Advice, Christians Against Poverty. You may well have already done so but always worth mentioning them.
    Hope things turn a better corner for you soon.
