It's at times like these that the little things, seem huge. The beautiful flowers from my parents, which lasted for weeks. Notes on pretty postcards, found tucked into the bed. The freshness of snow after two stuffy nights in A&E. Laughing our heads off when my Mum spilled a whole tin of paint on the bathroom floor. Cozy cups of coffee with my family squeezed around a little formica table. Our Valentine's cards sitting next to each other on the drawers beside the bed. The Ginge telling me that this is the most relaxed he has seen me in months and knowing that it's true. The messages and comments of concern and support that I have received from family, friends and from you lovely people who read my blog. It has actually been quite overwhelming and so very appreciated. Thank you so much! I have also had some really good news to celebrate - I got my first choice job for my first year of work and I couldn't be more thrilled. The long and short of it is that things are definitely on the up! It's a beautiful day outside; bright, milky sunshine and not a cloud in the sky. I've got that soaring feeling - I hope you have too.
