Saying Yes – Week 8

This week our Yes was to fundraising.  I’ve raised funds for arthritis research for different things, but this time it was my son on the adventure – he climbed the Yorkshire 3 peaks (he climbed the UK 3 peaks last year).  I plan on raising more funds too soon, with different adventures…  Let me know what you’d like me to do to raise funds, so I can say yes too!!

Saying Yes – Week 7

It’s a quiet week this week, as my hubby is working.  But my eldest is still off school after finishing his exams, so he wanted some fun time.  Our yes this week was enjoying fruit picking!  We wandered the different rows of fruit bushes, filling out punnet’s.  It was good fun and we can now bake lots of pies and crumbles.  We also bought some more veg plants, since our hens and ducks had a feast on our earlier ones.  Hopefully, we’ll manage to grow some this year…

That warm cozy feeling…

I get a little buzz when I’m searching for books, that warm cozy feeling in my tummy.  It’s just the best feeling ever!

I get that warm cozy feeling when I’m listening to my boys get excited about something, or when I’m staring down the lenses on my camera, taking that shot…

I get that warm cozy feeling when I’m laying here listening to the birds through the window on a warm sunny day, or snuggled beside the fire on a cold winters afternoon…

That warm cozy feeling is such a lovely experience, so I want to grasp it with both hands and cling on.  It’s the little things – the walk in the park…  the dogs rolling in the grass…  a tasty ice cream…  the first pumpkin spice latte of the season…  some funky socks…  a snuggly jumper…  sinking into a pile of cushions…  fairy lights twinkling…  a full moon in a star filled sky…  

These things make me happy 😊.

I think I might have a slight problem…

Being stuck on the bed for large parts of the day, since it’s the only comfortable position, has meant I’ve spent many many hours reading 📖. So when I do get out, I’ve stocked up on books from charity and discount shops.  The result being some very stuffed bookcases and no more space for books 📚. 

I guess I need to get my reading head on…  Well, even more than usual!  That could be difficult, since I spend most of my time reading now anyway!  If I can’t go on adventures, I can enjoy adventures in my head 💭. The pleasure of getting lost in a book is beyond any other experience.  I don’t know what I’d do without my books??!!??

So picture me laying here reading whilst my body rests…  Forget junk tv 📺, not my thing.  Give me a good book and I’m sorted!

I think I might just have a slight problem with buying books though!  Now where else can I put a new bookcase???

Saying Yes – Week 6

This week we visited a Museum in our nearby city, as my Yes…   My son wanted to visit, so we went along, and fun was had by all.

It’ll soon be the summer holidays when we’ll all be able to go out together for day trips.  Many memories in the making…

Saying Yes – Week 5

This week my assistance dog had an appointment with his eye vet in Cheshire, so we made the most of the trip by enjoying lunch out in the area…  We said yes to a treat 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻. My son, who is off school now he’s finished his exams joined us too, the perfect way to spend our afternoon.

Saying Yes – Week 4

It was the summer solstice this week, so my Yes was linked to that.  I recently planted veg plants to grow food, and we tidied the garden too.  So this week we enjoyed eating outdoors and lighting a fire pit when it became cool.  The perfect way to spend a summers day, and this Yes was to my boys.

Saying Yes – Week 3

This week I’ve had a few options for saying yes, but I chose a fun one – being a tourist in my local town.  I ordered a treasure hunt of my town, so now the weather is so good, we took part!  It was loads of fun and we explored streets we hadn’t seen before too.  I definitely recommend it!

Saying Yes – Week 2

Today I said yes to dog training in the park – a more challenging place to train as it’s very distracting…  I will get Rolo trained in additional skills so he can adjust to his impending blindness, whatever the challenges.

Saying Yes – Week 1

The start of my new and exciting challenge!  I plan on saying yes to as much as I can every week for the rest of the year!!!

Today I said yes to a family meal at the dining table.  A big thing for me as I’m usually snuggled up on the sofa or bed eating dinner before I fall asleep spoonless.  To make this yes more achievable, I’ve scheduled our meal at lunchtime – there is no point saying yes to something that I know is unachievable due to lack of energy.  This way I’m creating a lovely meal but it’s possible.

I’m sooooo looking forward to my new adventure!!!
