Reasons to be cheerful


Woohoo, can you believe it? Two blog posts in one week!! Short ones, I admit..... but hey, time has been limited of late.

I have such wonderful reasons to be cheerful this week.

Number One: We have just had a weekend away (see previous blog post). This was very exciting for me as it is was the very first time that we have taken a plane trip that involved the whole family. Nick was amazing, very relaxed and happy to go with the flow. Needless to say, this is quite an achievement for my autistic teen.

Number Two: I have just completed a short photography course. I now have a fair idea on how to use my camera on manual mode; and I also have a better idea of how to *make* a photograph. There is still a LOT for me to learn and it is going to be fun practicing





Number Three: It is grown up time for me tomorrow. We are going to a 50th Birthday celebration. It starts at lunch time and ends....... I am not sure when! Kids are all sorted. My only stress is finding something to wear! 

Have a happy weekend. xx

    1. @Jazzygal, I really found it a challenge learning how to use my camera. However, it feels great to see the finished product, although to be honest, I have a long way to go!
