Reasons To Be Cheerful #RTBC - Positivity All Around.


It's been a hectic fortnight filled with appointments, meetings, visits, lots of dashing here and there; some hair-pulling, a spot of worry, sprinkles of fun and a dollup of stress. Oh, and there was wine too. Naturally.

And laced through all of this were some lovely moments of positivity....

Like the first day of April that showered us in some glorious Spring sunshine with a stunning cobalt sea against a backdrop of a gorgeous blue sky. The perfect colours for World Autism Day, as a friend rightly pointed out! Sure who could resist going out walking in this.....




Like finally finding the book I wanted in order to complete my trilogy of books by Khaled Hosseini. And I have my recent listography post and the lovely Kate Takes 5 to thank for that!





Of course, when you're a tad stressed from all the running hither and tither, there is nothing better than making some time to meet with a really good friend to enjoy some  tea and cake. Or coffee, if you prefer! Thank you Looking For Blue Sky for the very enjoyable catch-up.

Then there are the secret meetings I've been having with some other good friends of long standing. Plans are afoot and who knows how this project will finally materialise. I can't tell you any more right now. It's very clandestine you see.... tell-you-and-I'd-have-to-kill-you kinda stuff! Suffice it to say that it sure will be the Tops ;-)

And of course I'm still living off the back of the lovely Mother's Day visit I made, it's even been followed by a similarly pleasant one.

It's all good really. Onwards and upwards.

I wish you a wonderful weekend, wherever in the world you are.

  11. great photo, it's amazing how much better you feel with blue skies and sunshine isn't it. I must get back into #R2BC i've just been too grumpy lately! I didn't know Hosseini had written a third, I've read the other two and loved them, I'm off to the book shop tomorrow to find it :-)

  13. @Lous Lake Views: Yes, blue sky and sunshine always lifts my often grumpy mood! I spotted this book at Christmas and since no-one bought it for me I finally got around to buying it for myself!

    @Older Mum: Yes, it was lovely. In amongst the difficulties that I can't blog about.
    Ooh, great minds and all that! Are you saving it up like me, to read when you can really relax and immerse yourself?
