Happy Thursday everyone and welcome to my second (I’m positive it’s my second, possibly my third) Positivity Wave post that was concepted by the sunshine blogger that is Meggy, she is a breath of fresh air!
This week has been a great one, I’m usually the *grrr* type of person but a lot lately has put a smile on my face. Some happy moments may be from last week, but I missed last week so hey ho!
I became a mermaid, well without a tail, and I’m not wondering around in a clam bra BUT I did dye my hair pinky and I felt very Swishy afterwards (Miss Swishy will do 😊). I’ve been making sure to focus on my self care every day, rather than once in a blue moon and this helped!
I made cupcakes and a banana loaf cake with my favourite 9 year old, who was also super happy to have dip dyed mermaid hair – she answers to Little Miss Swish.
I spotted the first lot of ripe blackberries, to which little Miss Swish has decided we shall bake a blackberry pie, she doesn’t even like blackberry pie!
Had a lovely Summer walk amongst the trees with my little man whose legs have way more energy in them than mine!
Made London bound plans with my Sitcom co-host ZooRoo for the Capital Crime Festival in September (are you going? Let us know!) with a meet up planned with another blogger favourite of mine (ours!), Mart! I’ve even booked my hotel and train, how organised is that! I would never think I’d be travelling to London alone, what an adventure it will be!
Had a trip to the beach and a little dive in the sea! This little man carries his cars around EVERYWHERE, I’m just so glad he didn’t lose one!
This week and last week has been somewhat of an emotional and mental epiphany for me. Some people leave your life, but that gives it room for other amazing people to enter it. I’ve been stuck in such a rut for a while, suppressing who I am and how I feel so others can feel more superior and I lost a piece of myself. Well the past couple of weeks, I got so much more of myself back than I thought possible – it’s created some crazy behaviours – from dancing like nobody’s watching to having a nearly constant smile on my face and just being less panicky! My worth isn’t based on how others see me, it’s how I see myself. So yes an epiphany is a great way to start!
My positive every week is the friends that I’ve made through blogging, you’re awesome folks, thankyou for being a part of my blogging journey 😘 I am so thankful for them taking me as I am, however annoying that may be sometimes! I am just so so lucky!
After the sun there will be rain: after the baking heatwave of last Thursday it rained and I’ve never been so excited to see it! It took all of me not to run outside in jammies and dance in it, because you know, I didn’t want to get a cold!
My mum has been poorly since the beginning of June, she’s not been herself and just feeling weak. Finally this week she had bloods and it’s all getting sorted: she’s back to her happy self… Thank god.
Last but no means least because I probably forgot a hell of a lot, I had baby cuddles with one of my closest friend’s little girl Evie, who is the cutest little baby ever, I’m not broody but she pushes it!
So that’s my fortnight of happiness! Well some of it! What positives happened to you this week? Share them with me!
