    I have poeople who care about me.

    Kids who ask in a genuine manner if I'm okay and if they could get me anything (I have a cold and look like death, they were lovely).

    One of the tough rugby players in school singing in class (music class thankfully) and loving it.

    Bonus thing: It's stopped raining.

    I attended on Maleficent on two occasions when our children were present and she complained about the pain that laughing caused her. When I collected her today I had occasion to make a quip about Presbyterians that brought the same response. Now and again the fear lifts.

    Seeing a Dr who actually listened to us and got eye contact.
    Seeing my daughter smile for the first time in ages because of above
    Getting everything she needs on ONE prescription! I don't think this has actually ever happened, I am so happy, plus he explained her blood test results in detail so we didn't have any residual concerns.
    This doctor is definitely a keeper. He is new to our surgery and I really hope he stays. He even explained the dosage of the tablets she was on and how long she could safely stay on them.

    10K on the exercise bike after quite a break.
    Lovely open fire
    Discovering that the expensive spray stuff for cleaning light fittings you can't take down to wash, really works. Sparkly lights!
