This week I finally got round to installing a stat counter on the blog, so I could see how many readers I had. Well, it turns out there’s a lot more of you than I realised! You’re a quiet bunch, aren’t you, shy little things preferring, for the most part, to lurk, rather than comment! Not that I blame you; I rarely comment on the blogs I read, either. Still, it’s nice to know how many of you pop by each day. The stats make you seem…… realer. Hello, you! *waves*
Recently, I started a gratitude journal. It’s so easy, when you’re struggling with stress and strain and mood problems, to focus in on yourself, to the exclusion of everything else. It can be hard to do anything but that, sometimes. The gratitude journal is designed to help me look outside my own struggles, and to notice and be thankful for the bright spots that are to be found in the darkest of days.
Some of the things that made it into the journal this week:
My electric blanket; frolicking lambs; my wonderful cleaner; the humour of Betty Macdonald; a husband who sings while he works (and will no doubt be singing even more after this concert we’re going to); the NHS (yes, really!); my mother; you, my lovely customers; hair that is finally (after two years) long enough to put up; having my best friend home after her being away for a month; sparkly red shoes; my gorgeous cats.
Speaking of which, how does he do this??!!
And look at this lovely shot, my boys in their favourite place:
I wish there was room in there for me too! Yarn pics coming up tomorrow, and I can’t wait for you to see them!!
