365 #18 {Looking on the bright side}

Sometimes it's hard to stay positive.
I chant mantras in my head that things could be a whole lot worse.
And they could. Easily.
But this isn't the place to get miserable so I've looked for things to brighten up my week.

Day 117
A wet Sunday full of work and chores. Strudel the dog has sat on our window sill for many a year brightening up the dreariest of days.
Day 118
I checked out the plants today growing in the conservatory. The sunflowers and beans are doing really well and the tomatoes aren't too far behind. The piano never gets played in case you're wondering.
Day 119
The chickens came up to the back door to greet me this morning. Currently very muddy and patiently waiting for their coop to be moved. Again. They always make me smile though, however muddy they get.
Day 120
The sun reappeared following days of rain and cloud. Such a welcoming sight.
Day 121
Not too late to bed tonight. I found the Good Luck card that the children had given me at the beginning of last week. I really feel I need some at the moment.
Day 122
The Friday feeling is so good now and I have a new routine of a sneaky ale in the evening to unwind. Tonight it accompanied a pile of work that I wanted to clear ahead of the long weekend so not quite as relaxing as usual.
Day 123
A lovely afternoon in the sun today at a local National Trust property, The Courts. We spotted this little ladybird resting on a stick in the Forest Schools area.
Linking up with the lovely The Boy and Me. Go and check out some other photo stories...
