I work from home, usually starting at 8am. This morning I sat in the conservatory with a freshly brewed coffee and watched two blackbirds washing themselves in the bird bath for a few minutes before settling down to the grind at my computer. Lifted my spirits for a while.

My granny puts bird seed on her window sill and when you sit at the table drinking tea ya see a mix of little birds all sorts of colours they are gorgeous. It's nice to take a moment

Warm, creamy soups are great, as long as you're getting plenty of rest and drinks really. Get well soon. Hope you're feeling better today.

You showed the character to get this far so keep going and don't look back.

Hold on to the good people and things in your life and take one day at a time. Family and friends are my rock. That, and going out to sea with my uncle on his boat or caring for animals. The dog always brightens my day when he runs to the car and jumps up on me to welcome me home!!!

Stay being the best version of you, you can be. The little things we do can make the world of difference to everyone around us. So keep going. No giving up now

I had a lovely few days. It really is the little things that make me thankful.

My hair dryer blew up this morning and my OH brought me on a spontaneous trip to get breakfast and a new hair dryer. The weather was beautiful, we were all in good form and instead of getting annoyed at silly things, we laughed instead

I went to a Novena this evening with my Mother and surprised myself at how over-whelming it felt; just felt vulnerable

Looking around at everyone else there; the Church seems to be the one place; the one safe haven for everyone; everyone was welcome.

People looked worried and stressed while the younger generations appeared bored and restless while the adults tried to amuse them into silence.

It was surreal but it brought home some home truths that I needed to think about and everyone seemed to have their own problem that they needed assistance from St. Anthony and more.

Teeny Tiny Things! Everyone is fighting their own battle in this world. If you can make life just somewhat easier or happier for someone / anyone around you; I would urge you to. You never know the difference it could make to their life right now . Don't wait for tomorrow if you can

I spied two fox cubs with their Mama in the garden the other day. She saw me too and stopped to gaze right back at me for a moment before scarpering with her little ones. Smile every time I think of them!
