Getting dressed, getting ready for the new day is routine for some
it can be exciting or meditative for others.
Once you choose your clothes
Try optimism on. It’s one size fits all.
And it’s free. Go on, it’ll look great on you!
A smile is the best makeup that a girl can wear
Sprinkle a little more love onto everything you do.
Let the light within your heart shine throughout the world.
Now you can journey through your day
with efficiency, hope and a sense of humour.
And don’t forget:
You are amazing!
Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone
Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety
Your breath can radiate Love or muddy the room in depression
Your glance can awaken joy
Your words can inspire freedom
Your every act can open hearts and minds

Many countries have had lots of snow and really cold arctic temperatures.
I have seen beautiful snow pictures from other bloggers.
Here in London,
we had it cold (as it seemed for us) but not bitter cold
and little snow like a dusting some days.
Here are my only impressions from the Winter.
On my walk to work, I liked these
It is lovely to see the little snow crystalls.
My dear friends,
thank you for all your prayers and good wishes
I am honoured to have such wonderful friends.
I feel much better and
I am back at work, taking it easy though.
Walking to work,
I see little daffodills trying to come through.
What a joy to see.
I can hear birds singing and chirping,
What a joy to hear.
I am very grateful to be able to experience the first signs of Spring.
Nature brings new life and is healing.
Enjoying these little beauties make me feel happy.
Do you have any signs of Spring where you live?
Being positive is what I am,
unfortunately the virus thought the same.
I tested positive for the virus after I fell ill starting with a massive headache.
Fever came second and then I started the cough.
Even though I had been extremely careful, never went out, had all shopping on line delivered, only walked to work and back, wearing masks, washing hands, keeping my distance always.
Still I got it, it seems to be so easy to get infected.
My isolation period is over now and I am feeling better.
I am lucky and I am super grateful that I could stay home and deal with all symptoms myself and concentrate on getting better.
Tiredness/ feeling exhausted and losing the sense of taste and concentration is what is left.
It does zap the life out of you and it will take time to get back to normal.
I can’t concentrate on a good book, but rather sleep. I sleep more than ever.
Eating is a chore as everything tastes rubbish.
Even chocolate isn’t appealing.
I am a fighter and I will conquer this too!
– for the sake of chocolate 🙂
The NHS has been amazing I can only give them praise.
I ordered the test online, it was delivered the next day , done and posted back.
The result came via email the day after.
The NHS sent me texts with clear instructions of isolation dates continuously.
They kept phoning throughout my isolation period to check how I am doing and to give advice on questions I have.
Thank you NHS for helping me through this difficult period.
I urge everyone to be extremely careful.
Wash hands, stay away from people and stay safe.
Keep the virtual love and hugs going –
they are more needed than ever.
To say that you are great, amazing,
fantastic and brilliant can be said in so many different words.
I’d like to tell you that in so many ways!
Let’s try and find one for every letter in the alphabet:
I need your help though please:
Can you find some for the missing letters?
In these challenging times
it is so important to still be happy.
As Voltaire describes and Francois illustrates it:
Happiness is good for your health
now even more!
Stay happy and healthy!
Picture by Francois from sketches sin stillness.
As it happened….
I switched on my computer on 1st day of the new year and nothing happened.
After a little investigation, you know if it is actually plugged in 🙂 and a call to my son,
it appears my computer is not working, kaput, dead, toast, non functional, gone to pieces, broken……
I think you get the picture.
During this time a computer is rather vital to keep in touch.
With the help of my son, I ordered a new one.
I am using right now my laptop, which I find a lot harder to use than my beloved desktop, specially with the cat on my lap. 🙂
A laptop is less versatile than the desktop.
I might be a little stressed but I am grateful
that I do have a laptop,
that I have help with technology (my son)
that we could still do our family quiz via zoom on the laptop.
that he could recover my files on the drive,
that I can learn from this, and not save stuff on my desktop…..
and that it can be solved, with just minor inconvenience really.
So really nothing to be stressed about.
So I am all relaxed again
looking forward to my new computer
and keep smiling.
Hope your new year started well and you are relaxed and happy!
