Sometimes, I’m not smiley, and I find it genuinely hard to be so. But this year, I’m focussing on the things that make me smile and not dwelling on the other stuff.
My birthday week (maybe fortnight) continues today with pancake eating in London Town with LT and my first ever Swing Patrol class at Angel. Things alone to smile about, but what I particularly loved was that a girl in the SP class, on the basis of one spoken sentence, could tell I was from the North East. That doesn’t often happen, but I love being a proud Northerner, so it made me very happy.
Instead of heading back to Leeds today, I heard that it was snowing there and decided to extend my London visit. I danced at the lovely ‘Passing Clouds’ this evening, and dancing always makes me smile.
Having been hosted by the lovely Mr Napper last night, today we partook in a marvellous pop-up game of pirates and aliens and dinosaurs and tree-creatures and explorers. The peril was mild, but very real and it sent me smiling on my way back to Leeds. 🙂
A lovely voicemail from Miles made me smile today, as I prepare for my birthday day. I also taught at Lindy Fridays today – again, dancing and Tessa is going to widen my grin.
It’s nice to have people to reach out to when you’re not feeling too able to smile. I’m lucky enough to have a few of those people, one of them being Tori. Thank you Tori for fixing my smile. x
BIRTHDAY! Champagne, cake, good friends, a wonderful family, a relaxed afternoon, many cards, some lovely gifts and a trip to the cinema for a Disney film!
It has been over a year since I have visited the lovely Casey family in their wonderful home. It was a genuine pleasure to be invited round for dinner, and be able to chat about all things Lindy/Life once more.
For all the people and things to make me smile this week, I say a huge THANK YOU!
