I can't believe I haven't posted in almost a month! That is pretty shocking. I tend to post of course when there's something to post about; I wouldn't want to write for the sake of it.
It occurred to me the other day, I have an awful lot of material I have written for a book (some of it from this blog) which I am currently doing nothing with so I might post a few bits of that...
My youngest sister turned 18 at the beginning of the week. Thanks to me being rather poorly she grew up a little quicker than perhaps she should, but it still feels weird that she is now a real grown-up (well as grown-up as turning 18 actually makes you.)
Work is going well; I think I am still struggling to adjust to the fact that I'm not immediately perfect at this. Thinking about it logically I think it's because I haven't challenged myself properly since Uni. When I was ill I always ensured I kept myself busy but of course they were doing things I was naturally good at (talking about myself) so it came easily. I got told at work the other day "you are the smiliest person I've ever seen!" which I took as a huge compliment! It reminded me of one of my old favourite quotes: "Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important" which I used to remember whenever I felt down about looking so poorly. Anyway I can't help smiling. It's genetic.
The Breathing Life Awards were held last Thursday and looked amazing from the clips I have seen on the net (which can be seen here). It's a very glitzy night organised by the CF Trust to recognise people with CF's achievements; everything from getting through the toughest times to academic and sporting achievement. The emotion there on the night is incredible; I was lucky enough to win an award in 2005 and it really was a night to remember, so massive congrats to everyone who went and was nominated this year.
I hope everyone else is out and about living and enjoying life, and making the most of this weekend's beautiful weather so far this weekend! Long may it last...
Sending some smiles!
