It is always good to stay positive and that is why I like this simple hop so much. It really makes you stop and think about the last few days. Sometimes the good stuff really pops out at you and finding the celebrations is easy. Other weeks things may not have gone so well, and the last thing you feel like doing is celebrating, but it is amazing how thinking of the simplest thing can lift your spirits.
I tried a new recipe. Do you get fed up of cooking the same meals for the family? Sometimes I just want to shake it all up a bit and try something different! I flicked through a cook book and decided on a Mary Berry chicken recipe using cream cheese, sun blushed tomatoes, garlic and lemon, then covered in a few fresh breadcrumbs parmesan cheese and chives. Should have taken a picture but only thought about it after we'd eaten it! Will definitely make it again. Whilst searching, a few other things caught my eye, so I think I will test some other new recipes over the coming weeks.
I've done a little writing this week. Only a few hundred words on my new project, but it's progress. I've been so busy with editing the last few weeks that it is quite nice to think about something new. I am starting to visualise these new characters and their conversations are playing in my head, which I think is a promising sign.
Following on from last week's post reference the new glasses, I can report a decision has been made! Thank you so much for all your comments, it was really interesting to read them. As I was struck with a bug for a couple of days last week, it was the weekend before I went back into the opticians and, as it happened, this was a good thing. A new delivery of frames had just arrived! Conversation went something like:
Optician - "I think we may have something new in you'll like."
Me - " Really?"
Husband - sighs and mutters under his breath, "Oh no, we are going to be here for hours!"
Me - "Are they purple?"
Optician - "Yes."
You get the picture, right? Anyway, they should arrive in a couple of weeks. I will post a picture when I have them.
Finally, this week I'd like to celebrate the power of a hug and the warmth of a friendly smile, whether a giver or receiver be.
Please note I may have little access to internet over the weekend so I will visit blogs and return comments as I am able. Thanks for visiting. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
