If we were having coffee, I’d sigh with relief because my son has fully recovered from chicken pox. It was a testing start to the week with no childcare support and I felt like I was on my last breath. He managed it reasonably well. Fingers crossed my daughter and I have escaped it for now.
If we were having coffee, I’d probably be in a perky mood. Yesterday, I celebrated my 10th anniversary in England. Thinking about this landmark date fills me with joy and wonder. So much has changed in this time. I wrote down 10 things I am grateful for, but more and more points pop into my mind making my heart swell with gratitude.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about this amazing book I’ve been reading lately. It’s called ‘The Power of Habit’ by Charles Duhigg. It teaches how to break bad habits and cultivate new ones. It left a lasting impression on me. And so using this new understanding, I decided to make meditating daily a habit. I’ve started on 10 September and set myself a 40-day challenge. I’ll let you know how it went on 30 October.
If we were having coffee, I’d lament about autumn coming in too early this year. Don’t get me wrong. I love autumn with its vivid colourful displays. It’s just… I didn’t have enough summer this year! Between recovering from a complex C-section in spring, writing like I was on a marathon, caring for my family and rainy weather, I feel robbed. Hopefully, a trip to Azerbaijan next week should give me a good blast of sunshine and satisfy my craving for a bit of summer.
If we were having coffee, I’d remind you to visit Diana’s blog. She hosts week-end coffee shares with many talented bloggers sharing highlights from their lives. Worth a visit. Have a wonderful week-end, and if we are all well to travel next week, I’ll catch up with you in a couple of weeks. You can expect some pictures and stories from Azerbaijan.
