the last few weeks have been interesting.
the car broke down dramatically. AGAIN. this time on the brow of a hill, so that it required the company of two police cars whilst the car was loaded onto a tow truck, and driven to the garage - who announced a unbelievably large repair bill. We applied the "three strikes and you're out" rule, and have changed the car.......
meanwhile a valve burst on the hot water tank and we had water dripping through the ceiling.
I wrote a "to do" list, and once it reached two pages of A4 I got a bit overwhelmed and went for a cup of tea instead, and got out my colouring pencils and drew a picture of a mermaid outfit.
Then I started to collect lots of sparkly things. In times of stress you can never have too many sparkly things. This week things have been much calmer. The sun shone today and all is well. It is the start of half term and if things start to get a bit hairy again at least I the start of a mermaid outfit. And a new quote to live by.
"life isn't about learning to weather the storm, it's about learning how to dance in the rain"
do you have a favourite quote or saying? I could do with some spares. just in case......
