Don’t worry, be happy

We are going through a difficult time at home recently and it hasn’t been easy for R and I. I’ll share more details when the time is right.

But today someone reminded me I must remember to look after myself and I think she is quite right. I constantly feel very anxious, tensed and on edge but that is very unhealthy for me.

Afterall, although we all have problems, we must always remember to focus on happy things in our lives to keep us going. So I made myself come up with three things to be cheerful about.

1)The orchid plant which the girls got me for my birthday last year is thriving! It has gone blooming crazy this autumn and now has 20 new buds on three new branches. It’s quite a sight and needless to say, it is absolutely stunning.

2) We received our first postcard from the free postcard collection we laid out at the wedding reception! It was from Dan, who wrote to us to say how much he enjoyed our wedding and also to update us about his work and prices of mooncakes after the Mid-Autumn Festival. It really made my day when I read it.

3) I got a big tax refund from Inland Revenue for overpaid tax last year! So now I am £700 richer.

I’m trying to put my blinkers so I can overlook all my worries and focus on taking a day at a time.
