This week has been such a bisy one - a reason to be cheerful in itself, but here are the things that have really cheered me this week.
1) I started going to yoga... I've been wanting to start for ages and there's a class locally, but I didn't fancy going on my own. Then my mum said she fancied it too, so we went together and had a great time. I was definitely aching in places I didn't know you could ache, but I've slept better this week than I have for ages and I'm looking forward to doing it all again next week.
2) Work is working... even though returning to being self-employed was completely the right thing to do, I was still worried about whether I'd get work and get paid, so this week I was pleased to see my name in print, to get some more commissions and to get paid for work I've completed.
I love the flexibility I've got now and that I'm not tied to regular Monday - Friday, 9-5 hours. In fact, I'm not tied to any hours, which meant I could...
3) Go for a day out with my mum and dad... Yes, I took the day off and went shopping and for lunch in Cardiff with my parents. It was a lovely, relaxed day and I even managed to buy the new set of kitchen knives my son has been hankering after and some white hot chocolate powder for me.
I had aubergine, mushroom and chickpea curry (Which I don't have at home because my son doesn't like aubergines or mushrooms), in my favourite eatery and generally had a lovely day.
So today I'm back at my desk working hard and feeling much more productive for having spent a few hours away.
