I missed last week and hardly realised it.
It's Halloween today but we don't celebrate it so it isn't a what-we-should-be-doing-with-George grieflet. It's the day of the dead tomorrow but it's not part of our cultural reference so we don't think about it. It's an ordinary Sunday here. Later this evening the neighbours (who somehow have the fuse for the intercom in their half of the house) will turn off the doorbells and there will be no trick or treating which is perfectly fine with us.
Anyway, five good things from the past week:
Seeing the lovely blue paint on our bedroom wall and smiling at it. I smiled at a wall.
My Dad smiling, joking and eating at his birthday dinner on the 25th (takeaway Indian food) after what my Mum said had been difficult and grumpy day for him.
Getting absorbed into a good book.
Making a decision.
Please join in: what good things found you last week?

Watching the changing light in the sky as I walk to the train in the morning
Thanks, Barbara- I needed to do this this week.
We don't do Halloween either, so the day isn't painful or full of what ifs for me either. Though this year we did get invited to a Halloween Party - hosted by an American!ReplyDelete
