I can't believe I've nearly reached the end of this challenge.
The theory is of course that focusing on the happy moments helps you notice them more, and it's a fine theory, but I've been wondering if focusing on negative moments might not be a good thing to do as well. Perhaps cathartic? I'm thinking of doing ten days of grumpy pics - you know, whatever it is that makes me feel grumpy that day. I'm sure I'll find things quite easily because I'm a grumpy so and so.
If you fancy taking part in #100happydays you can find out more here. Here are my last ten days.
I'm going to start my #10grumpydays when I've finished the hundred. Care to join me? Just use the hashtag.
|On day 81 we got Sky! We are now up to date with Game of Thrones, which makes me very happy, although did you see Monday's episode? Bleaurgh!|
|On day 82 we had fun making lanterns. The big girl and a neighbour started them, and I finished them off when they lost interest. It was very therapeutic.|
|On day 83 the little girl and I played a game pulling facial expressions in the garden. This is 'sad'. She's good huh?|
|Day 84: I'm really enjoying writing at the moment (the book mainly - sorry to be neglecting the blog)|
|Day 85: a trip to the library. I love libraries, if they had shops where you could 'borrow' cakes, I'd love them too.|
|Day 86: a beautiful day, and I had plenty of time to enjoy it, thanks to my marvellous mother in law. I went to the felting exhibition in West Kilbride. It was so good. I would love to learn to do this.|
|Such a treat on day 87, the children and I went to visit a friend and meet her beautiful owls. Thanks!|
|Personally I find Scalextric maddening, but we finally unpacked the boy's set on day 88 (it's only taken us 18 months), and the children loved playing with it. Meanwhile I took up position on 'slide off corner', and put the cars back on the tracks.|
|It was lovely to have another day mainly to myself so soon after day 86 on day 89. I met up with my local writing group and spent a day on poetry! Good company, good food, and good poetry. Thanks all.|
|On day 90 we went to the park to enjoy the sunshine. I'm starting to love living here.|
