What makes you smile? This is what did it for me this week:
I have a busy (and mega smile-inducing) week coming up, and I am getting a cold! So today, I did the sensible thing and took the day off work. Whilst in bed, drinking copious amounts of water, I booked my tickets to fly to NEW YORK in April. Smiley smiley smiley.
Having had ALL the sleep, I am feeling far far better today. Hurray! There’s a reason to smile alone. However, I had even more reasons to smile today, as I taught my lovely High Spirits choir, and watched the lovely Louis Louis Louis do their thing in Sheffield.
Back at school today, and very happy about it too. I’m lucky to work in such a lovely institution. School was followed by a mega-productive meeting of The Honeybirds, and then a late-night text from John: “I can’t believe you’ve reduced me to practising clarinet at half 11 at night”. This made me giggle muchly.
It’s RECORDING DAY! So many smiles, so much laughter, and so many things to say thank you for, I can’t fit it all in!
One of my very bestest friends, Mitt, got married today. I got to see not only him and his lovely wife, but Polly and Chloe too – who brought me birthday presents. What a beautiful beautiful day, full of so many deserved smiles.
After the wonderful reception last night, Chloe and I returned to Mitt’s parent’s house today to pick up my car. We were invited in for tea and chats, and I got to meet Molly’s Mum properly too. It was lovely, and noticing how similar Mitt is to his dad and Molly is to her mum made me smile lots.
In 3 weeks, Jules and I will be hosting the next Teapots and Twirls event. I am SO excited. Today, we sold out the Workshop before the Tea Dance. I’m very happy. I also had a lovely visit from John today, on the eve of his 28th birthday. We have known each other such a long time!
For all the people and things to make me smile this week, I say a huge THANK YOU!
