Oh my gosh. How pathetic was yesterday's post? Talk about your cases of sorry-itis! Just a clearcut case of a Claire who was feeling tired and hungry and overworked and having a wee bit of a whinge, I'm afraid. I'm such a wuss.

And of course, as soon as I did get home, and grabbed a shower and made myself the regal supper that is cheese on toast (oh my. Soooooo good) and watched Ugly Betty I thought of oodles and bunches of stuff to be grateful for.

Like the fact that my kids have all settled back in really well after Easter - my tutees this year are such a lovely bunch and they are genuinely wonderful kids.

Like the fact that this time in six months I'll be in Canada. And I'm going to see Brian Wilson in September. And Caro is over to visit in August. And next month I'm treating myself to something very fun (more on that soon).

Like the fact that I'm happy and healthy and loved and I have eleventy million blessings to count everyday. Not to mention a passle of buddies who forgive me my occasional moments of Eeyoreish behaviour.

I'm a lucky, lucky girl.

And I love when I remember to remember that!

Hugs to all, and yay to tomorrow being Friday!


PS I love this Audrey Hepburn quote: “I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.” That's so so me, it's actually disquieting. And this other quote from the great lady: “For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”? Is officially my new mantra...

  2. I read that first line quickly and it looked as though it said "sorry tits" dear lord......haha, i'm silly.

    Where in Canada will you be going? If you're around my way I can show you the sites for a day though I realize Canada is rather large and you may not be anywhere by me.
