It’s Tuesday, and time to share those lessons learned :
- enjoy more gorgeous flowers and visits from friends, and thanks everyone, I’m feeling much better now (following the surgery)
- don’t be surprised if the double glazing salesman looks more than a little nervous when you come to the door after your 6 year old has just told him “Mummy got her throat sliced” (from the surgery)
- be very surprised to manage almost a week without chocolate, despite your husband inadvertently buying a very delicious looking and smelling chocolate browning pudding from Marks & Spencers
- be “glad” when your teenage daughter (who is also giving up chocolate for lent) reminds you of this just as you are about to taste aforementioned pudding
- enjoy looking through and sharing old photos with family and friends through the wonderful world of Facebook
- be amazed that we ever survived car journeys, as this is how we travelled in the days before seat belts and car seats in the back of a car
- looking forward to St Patrick’s Day, to share what we do (and mostly don’t do) here to celebrate – remember to join in HERE, and share, as you could win a prize 🙂
- since starting this post, I have just had a visit from church who brought me the flowers that were at the front of church for the service this week – you know you must have been ill to get the flower arrangement from church! They are gorgeous and it was lovely to receive them.
Finally, I’ve committed to attending two upcoming events where I will know no-one, so definitely out of my comfort zone.
The first is the Ladies Tea Party which is a pre-party for the Irish Blog Awards 2011 which is being held in Belfast this year. I’m not attending the Awards ceremony, just the party beforehand, but it will be a chance to meet some more bloggers on this island of Ireland. Imagine – a room full of people who all “get” blogging!
If you are a blogger, female, and able to be in Belfast on Saturday @5pm, there are still tickets left, it would be great to see you there.
