Almost daily diary!

This way up

I have landed on my feet. I am very, very lucky. What an amazing week I have had here in my new home and new life? Having moved last Friday, a very smooth move, by Saturday the place looked fairly straight and I felt very 'at home'. The children seem settled and Small Sprog is sleeping better (touch wood) I couldn't be more pleased.

Last weekend was full of visitors, lots of happy people bearing flowers, gifts and cards, I couldn't believe how lovely it all was, my friends, in my home. Almost too many blessings to count. Though I did count them, am still counting. . .

It didn't stop there either. On Monday my Lovely Mans parents came down and bought us a delicious lunch. Then today I met fellow blogger Bobo, who also bought me lunch! (Lunch is such a lovely word, don't you think? It sort of sounds yummy, or perhaps I just love eating?!) It was fab to meet him, isn't it brilliant the way we can mix our virtual and non virtual worlds sometimes? (Thanks Bobo and thanks to Hulla too for my amazing gift. Hope to see you one day too)

Even more fabulous things are planned for the weekend. My Man and I are away for two nights, somewhere special and then dropping into see his lovely family on the way home, staying overnight there too to make a really long weekend. How amazing is that?

Sometimes life can be a huge pain in the bum, and yet at other times, well it just keeps getting better. My mantra, the thing I have learnt over the last two years, is to live for the moment and make the most of every day. I remind myself of this often, for I have spent a long time living in the past and the here and now were never a thing I considered often. So if you are reading this and having a 'pain in the bum' sort of a time, take heart for nothing lasts forever. Soon good times will come again, but they won't last forever either, so make each minute count. It's a great life and right now, I intend to live it.

Inspirational stuff.

I'm on the cusp of going into a major pain in the bum time I think... I'm trying to steady myself for it already and trying to not listen to the negative voices in my head

Glad everything's going so well. Absolutely right, live in the moment and live to the maximum, because as you say everything could change tomorrow.

French Fancy said...

Hi, Suburbia! Just returned last night from visiting daughter and trying to get back into the swing of things here. How wonderful it is to read your last two posts--your happiness just shines through your writing! I'm so glad that you are settled in and everything is working out so well for you and Tall Girl and Small Sprog. Enjoy this new beginning!

Hold on, new man? I think I must have missed a piece of vital information somewhere along the line. Anyway, have fun! x

Live for the Moment is a lovely idea, and one I try to put into practice all the time.

I look at some of the older people I know, who have not lived for the moment, and now are old and lonely.

My motto has always been Life Is Too Short.

And having now met, four fellow bloggers over the years, and as you know, travelled to Australia to meet one of them and stay for two weeks with them (some friends/family thought I was totally mad on that one I can tell you!) - I can confirm it is totally good to meet the Virtual World and the Real World!

love from Letty x ps glad you are feeling so much better, I think I told you once, things would get better, I am so glad they have ;0D
