Apologies for the drawing but I am sat in a camping chair peering at the increasingly grey clouds, so my artistic skills are even less apparent than they usually are!
This week has been busy, lots to do at work, lots to do at home preparing for our holiday, and generally feeling like time was short.
I have been trying to stop having unrealistic goals, trying to stop aiming to do far more than is possible in the time available. I've been trying to stop neglecting the blog and have managed to do a few more posts than usual.
I've been trying to stop ignoring the good things and have been enjoying doing a daily post on Instagram celebrating three good things and embracing the happy stuff. I've been trying, albeit with limited success, to stop being quite so focussed on what other people think, when I realised recently just how much of my thoughts are preoccupied with worrying about how others perceive me.
It has still been a productive week, things have got done, progress has been made. There have been slow evenings with Grandad, new recipes, pottering in the garden. Presents have been wrapped bags have been packed, and work has been done. Now, sitting in the evening light, next to our tent, Millie by our side, it is time to stop looking at my phone and enjoy the life going on beyond the screen.
