Thank you for the days......


I know I talk a lot about my depression on here, and in part it's beacause having an outlet is a great help to me, but believe it or not, I do have happy days and ok days and distinctly average days, but today has been a really, really lovely day and for that I'm truly thankful.

This morning we took Poppy ice skating for the first time, she was so good, her balance was great and she was so well behaved, I could not have been more proud. On a personal note I have had a massive fear of ice since being a child myself having had a really bad fall, so the fact I went on the ice with her today, and skated fairly well and didn't fall was a personal triumph! Poor Mr BeBe was a different story, the words Bambi and Frank Spencer spring to mind! Ha!! but in all fairness he has never been ice skating in his life, so for his very first time I'm also very proud of him!

This afternoon we went to see Les Miserables, I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I absolutely love the stage musical, so I was very, very excited to see the film version, and for me it didn't disappoint, it was visually stunning and most of the vocal performances were amazing, sadly Russell Crowes vocals for me weren't strong enough but his acting more than made up for it.

A very happy me just about to see the film! After the film we went for a big gut busting carvery, then home to a belated Christmas present from my mum, a comfy onesie and a cup of tea... All is well in the world.

So, what makes you happy? Is it the simple things in life or maybe something a bit more lavish?

  3. It's little things for me too, definitely. I find big happy things to be overwhelming, and that scares me a bit. And little things don't threaten to have life-changing effects or have any strings attached, so it's just pure joy.

  7. Simple things in life and baseball. Over the last 12 years I have learned a lot about myself and I have learned that I do not need much to make me happy as every day that the sun rises and I rise with it is a day to cherish.
