my happy place + my August holiday destination
my husband's favourite dessert.....I've never made it, maybe that can be my week-end challenge :)
No, I am not advocating this....but it did make me smile :)
If you had told me a month ago that I would have had the stresses/strains/worries and sitations that I have experienced this week with my Dad (who, for those of you who don't know, is very ill right now)....I would have told you that I wouldn't be able to cope with any of it.
But I/we did cope and we survived. We got through it.
I guess it's the "teabag" theory ie, not knowing how much hot water you can endure until you are totally in it up to your ears.
We made it and are ready for whatever happens next.
Proof maybe that if you think you can do it, you really can.
I have two younger brothers and I wouldn't have said we were always close but we have proved to be a brilliant team so far and I feel very proud of them and the way we have worked together since goodness knows it has been an emotional rollercoaster.
I remain resolutely optimistic though and determined to focus on the positive.
Good weather is forecast for the week-end and I am going to two great parties this week-end.
A friend is having a Casino Royale party for her 40th birthday complete with champagne, roulette tables and live band....I would love to tell you that I am spraying myself with gold paint or wearing a white bikini but I will in fact just be looking as glam and Bond-girl-like as I can (in my dreams!)
On Sunday my lovely friend H is having a summer garden party prior to having her 6TH child and before moving away from Muswell Hill :(
Happy Week-end everyone!!
