Today’s Nudge, recap September.
Oh my goodness it’s been a blast with highs and not so highs, you know the natural cycle of things, there are times for energetic activities, times for contemplating and times for rest and they are all important. They are certainly all important to me, I need all three or I struggle. September has been interesting in that respect as I have had to make choices in order to blog every day, energetically I have found this challenge incredibly challenging which has been a surprise. I have absolutely loved this experience though and have made a few new friends who I look forward to reading more about and getting to know more. In fact blogging every day with the group has really enhanced my sense of connection to some really rather lovely human beings.
So I’m still where I was when I started blogging in terms of my walking goal, actually if I’m honest I’m a step or five back from where I was, but I’m still out there nearly every day walking what I can manage, the goal of going to my local shop alone is still a way off, but I’m still working towards it and I refuse to sit down and do nothing so, you are going to have to deal with it universe, I will not stop trying! Painting has been sporadic and not as much but it’s been a bit and I’m looking forward to doing “drawoween” I tried taking part last year but flaked out as I do have to be a bit flaky sometimes, but this challenge has given me the confidence to commit, watch this space and see how it goes.
Life in general in September has been the same as everything else ups and downs, I saw a scan of my beautiful grandchild to be and I’ve just seen the latest and “Nancy-Rose” is perfect and has grown exactly as she should and her Mother is doing very well too, which makes her grandmother very happy! My other children are doing really well the two youngest that live with my partner and I are doing great, one of them is flying the nest and even though she’s twenty years old and we are ready for her to spread her wings it’s still a worry, the other home bird has managed to land herself a good job after going through a bit of tough time applying for a few months, it really took its toll on her confidence but now she is loving her new work environment. One of our sons who has been living some distance away has asked us to keep our eyes open for property in the area as he and his lovely partner are moving near home, the other son is doing fantastically and he and his partner I getting a van in order to travel as they have the bug, and his partner is arranging for the family to work as extras in a production she is working on, which I think will be great fun. Our eldest is doing the most gorgeous work, she’s a Potter and she does some amazing things and makes us so proud in how she is getting on with life after having an incredibly tough time. I just had to have a chuckle this post reminded me of chatting to my mother, we live in different countries so whenever I speak to her I give her a run down of all the children. She is over for a super quick visit next month and I can’t wait, she will have up crafting with her until I drop.
It’s been a month full of happiness and sadness as we found out my father in-laws to be’s cancer has progressed quite aggressively its a difficult situation when there is no hope at all……….. Our focus now is on the quality of his remaining time
That’s me in the middle with my sister and one of my sons, I feel so truly grateful for my amazing family and my awesome children.
