Reasons to be cheerful
I have friends in this country that I don't see for 6 months at a time. They don't even text or phone or even email in that time. But when they do appear, usually with 2 bottles of your favourite wine and an offer to buy you dinner, it's like you were never apart. And they get me.
2. More Friends
I have Friends I confide in - in the Four Corners of the World thanks to Blogging. I might not drop in to their "crib" that often lately. But they know where I am and I am grateful to be able to call in whenever and take a break from my real world - when it get too real.
One of these days I want to be able to travel to every one of their cities and meet them personally -
maybe if my little project works out? - Kate, you might have to book me in for a cupcake and a ristretto one day soon.
For now, I will just have to settle for wearing my WendyB Teeny Genie where ever I go.
3. My lovely kids
This is a picture of my lovely Grace - who is doing so well at the moment thanks to her new school.
When I get home after a challenging day, it is nice to just cuddle up with her and play games, and tickles and pretend to be a Carnotaur (the mean dinosaur in the Disney movie)
She doesn't have that much to say, but she can tell you what she needs and that is a huge help. And sometimes it is nice to be around someone who doesn't talk so much. But who makes it very clear that she loves you.
