It’s Friday – fabulous, fantastic, fun, friendly! Any other F words you can think of?
I’ve started listening to a great new podcast called Too Peas in a Podcast where Mandy and Kate talk honestly and openly about their lives with their children, twins and disabilities.
It’s been an eye-opener for me in lots of ways. It has also been something I can relate to, with my newest experience of being a grandmother of a baby still in NICU after she was born at 25 weeks gestation, nine weeks ago, without an end in sight yet. I walk along in the bush, listening to the podcast, laughing, learning, crying and nodding along.
They finish some episodes by answering these three questions, and I really like the simplicity. So thanks to Mandy and Kate for giving me this idea.
Please leave me a comment with what made you happy, sad or something that made a difference to you this week, I’m always happy to hear from you.
What made me happy this week?
Lots of things made me happy this week. In no particular order-
The warm spring sunshine and flowers – I’m getting as much vitamin D as I can before we head to England for a few months to see my eldest daughter and her little family.
Also we hosted a visiting band for the evening after watching their performance at our favourite local cafe. It was really fun.
My youngest daughter enjoyed a yoga session for pregnant mums-to-be and I’ve started writing a post about her and baby Gundoo 🙂
I’ll be spending the weekend with my middle daughter and her family and we’re all walking for a good cause on Sunday.
I’m looking forward to my my mother coming to visit next week too.
What made me sad this week?
Learning that the recent rain which has greened up our garden nicely, didn’t get to where it is desperately needed. So many areas are in drought already and it’s still only springtime.
Watching the news – I really should just turn it off!
What made a difference this week?
I watched an episode of the Australian children’s cartoon Bluey which was all about Early Babies and it was so well executed I just had to share it. In just 7 minutes it explored and explained the way some babies are born early and what you have to do – mainly wash your hands and be the bravest you’ve ever been. It summed it up perfectly. All of the Bluey shows are fun and well worth watching by adults and children alike.
On a similar topic, our family is taking part in the 10th annual Walk for Prems fundraising walk this year and we’re hoping to make a difference to families who have a premature or sick baby. This was our story on the front page of the local newspaper!
OK it’s your turn – what would your answers be?
Have a fabulous weekend.
