Hello all. I’ve been having one of those days all week. I am sure you know what I mean. It’s like all the little niggly things in your life that could go wrng decide to gang up on you and hit you all at once.

I’ve dwelled on it a bit. I’ve gotten annoyed, angry, worried and a fair bit stressed. And tonight a good friend of mine sends me a link to this song Everybody’s free by Baz Luhrmann

and suddenly I realise that if I look at the hiccups of the week, the broken laptop, the cap that’s popped off my tooth again, the delayed appointment for my husband and all the rest are, in the grand scale of things, next to nothing.

I have a home, I have food, I have family and friends. I have a life that, when you look at it, is a pretty easy one and one that is certainly blessed. So the blocked drain, the unanswered questions and the annoying phonecalls can no longer get me down. I’m going to think positive.

At my college, our principal, bless him, was fond of a quote by Julian of Norwich that goes something like this.

“And all shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well.”

And that, ladies and gentleman is what I am going to keep repeating to myself ’til this week is over and I hit the exciting weekend when I’m going to London (baby!) to join in a Uniform Behaviour reading at SH! in Portobello Road.

And I’ll remember my sunscreen too. :p
