Major smile number two for the week came when one of my wonderful friend and I went to see 'Cold Chisel' on Tuesday night. The concert was fabulous, but I think the biggest smiles....well actually belly laughs, came as we ran to the car through torrential rain after the concert! We were both completely drenched and at times running through ankle deep water, splashing like two five year olds and laughing hysterically! It was topped off by the rain stopping just as we got to the car and then the two of us singing along to 'Cold Chisel' songs as we drove home. Sometimes it is absolutely the simple things in life which bring the greatest joy. Here's a 'long arm' shot taken of Jane and I before the concert....mmm it's a bit off centre .....I think I need to practice these more!
Next big smile was all day Wednesday when Jane and I visited an art store, had lunch in one of our old haunts from years ago and then found some bargains in 'Spotlight'! Just got to love this sort of shopping with a friend!
Thursday's smiles came when I had the chance to talk on Skype with some of the students I taught in London and a few of the wonderful staff members I was inspired by in my time there. I miss these people incredibly and to have the chance to chat was just brilliant!
.....and today I just had to think of some of the things I am grateful for to start smiling all over again!
- the ability to go to the gym to keep fit
- my art which continues to be one of life's true treasures
