Hello bloggers!

Can you believe that it is only a few days till Easter.  I haven't decorated a thing and I'm not going to and I am fine with that.  In fact, I am happy about it and so glad that I am not feeling any pressure.  It is fun seeing what you are up to though (said without any pressure).

I noticed that some irritating idiot little herbert was leaving "comments" of an inappropriate nature on my blog, so I thought I better pop by and say hello, so, Hello!, and reclaim this space for myself.

I am not going to bore with you my life right now, but I am OK, not good, but not bad either which is better than I thought it was going to be.  There are still mountains to climb, greater than I have already climbed, but as long as I keep putting one foot in front of the other....

There are things coming up which I am looking forward to - or trying to at any rate - and I am focussing on that.  I have also realised that the girl who failed at maths at school, and was so bad at it and hated it so much I cannot even begin to tell you, has realised that she loves a statistic and keeping records and writing stuff down and being able to track this number compared to that number, and it is really helping me focus on what I need to right now and to track my progress.  So I might have to give maths another chance.  In all of the things that I have realised lately and found out about myself, that has been the scariest in some ways.  How did I live so long and not know that I actually love maths.....  Weird huh!  I thought I was a words person.  Oh yeah, well I am that too - as she warbles on again......  Although I have to add that I don't love tracking steps and I am not doing that am not going to be doing that!

I better draw a close to this post now folks!  I have data to analyse...

Take care of yourselves my dears, and have a good Easter/autumn/spring/cooler weather/warmer weather - please say it will warm up eventually! - or whatever it is that floats your boat at this time of year.

Hello folks

I just wanted to let you know that I will not be finishing out my grateful February because I am struggling with something right now and cannot focus on good things.

In some ways it isn't so serious and certainly isn't anything like as serious as what our dear blogging friend Janet has shared with us that she is dealing with, but it is tricky for me to handle.  If/as and when I can get my head around things to share with you I will, but for now I am retreating which isn't good for me, but I don't know what to write right now and even writing this is making me cringe.  It really probably isn't as dramatic as my trying not to tell you makes it sound, but it is big for me and not in a good way.

I am not fine, but chances are I will be, but I just cant share more right now.

Thank you for all of the lovely things you have been glad for and particularly to Janet and Lorraine who have visited these posts and commented on them a lot.

Hope to see you again in a couple of weeks, in the meantime thank you all and take care of yourselves and live for the day and tell your family you love them.


p.s. I thought I should add it is health related but isn't cancer or a stroke or one of those sort of things, just so your mind is at rest if you were worried about that.

Day Twenty Five Grateful Blogging February

I missed yesterday, not because I wasn't grateful for anything, but I just didn't get as far as blogging.  No worries!

Today I am grateful for kind neighbours who are going to help us with something, they are lovely, and I was sure they would be nice, but I am glad that they were.

Hope you have all had a good weekend, see you tomorrow for the last few days of grateful blogging February.
