Just count your blessings girl !!!

I try really hard to be upbeat and sunny, I'm not one of those people who always moans about how shit their life is, honest. My life is turning out to be completely different to the way I imagined it but I am so not complaining about it, there are masses of positive things in my life, truly.

Today I have had a shocker of a day. So to cheer myself up, I will count my blessings

I have THE most special, unique and fabulous family, The Beautiful Children, The Beautiful Parents and The Beautiful Sister and her family.

The beautiful parents are home from my house in Turkey and can stop "helping" me.

My work is still fabulous and fulfilling and my learners are brilliant and I love teaching them.

Parents night for The Beautiful Son has passed and was really very encouraging, he chats a bit but all teachers I spoke to commented on what a good person he is and how much they liked him and enjoyed teaching him. Also The Beautiful Son is being presented with a prize for his part in the school rugby team.

Beautiful eldest daughter is still going to school, what she does there is another matter. She was in a drama showcase on Sat and again she stunned me with her talent. She looked, as always, extremely beautiful, which wasn't easy as she was playing the part of a cave woman.

Beautiful baby daughter is trying to become a more diet version of her personality as the full fat version has been proving rather tricky of late. This am when I was really upset she was really really comforting and extremely sweet. I love my baby so much.

I am coming home to The Mother Country on Saturday and staying for the half term week.

Some of The Beautiful friends I know will be seeing me and I hope some of the other beautiful friends will make time to see me.

I wish more people would count their blessings, too! I know so many people who blame their childhood, ex's, relatives ect, for how their lives have worked out when they really should be more focused on making the most of things. Granted, some do have it harder than others, but I know so many who prefer to moan!

You're a pleasure to know Gwen!
