::inspiring Mondays::

How do you start an inspiring post when you feel all inspiration has left you and is probably enjoying a holiday somewhere sunny and warm? With difficulty, is LMJ's answer. 
As I sit here thinking for once I want to feel low and drop the optimism, LMJ niggles at me and insists I put things in perspective. Sunday was the truly bad day, not Monday. Poor Monday only picked up the pieces of a shattered Little Miss Joey in need of peace and quiet and some knitting. And I guess that is inspirational, the fact that there is a tomorrow ie this Monday…! Monday comes to show LMJ things are going to be ok and life resumes and there's coffee and bootcamp and JJ cuddles. 
:: Mum on the phone. it's ok, Mum tells me, things like these happen all the time. not to me Mum. to people, Mum says; aren't you a person? good point Mum!
:: weekend with the cococitas 
:: chatting away with the cococitas. so much to tell and catch up on. 
:: afternoon cake after a photographic exhibition, followed by tapas dinner. nothing like good company and good food. 
:: friends who come and hold your hand whilst you use their phone to cancel all your plastic access to money. and then give you money. and food. even when you thought you weren't hungry… but you were, really! 
:: the peace that comes from knitting. take it up, I tell you. 
:: wool shops. and the lovely ever so patient ladies there who help me choose the right shades of each colour to go with the other right shades I've already picked. and help me calculate the right number of skeins for each project. and get so into it themselves they end up searching the whole store for that *perfect* shade! 
:: breakfast while watching the news. I love it. 
:: JJ time.  
:: Little Mister Joey. 
Looking at the list above, life seems to be going in the right direction… yupii for Mondays and fresh beginnnings. 
How's your Monday coming along? A new beginning feeling too?

    I agree that today was better than yesterday. Today I am only a day older, but yesterday I was a whole year older!Still – it sounds as though your Sunday was worse than mine. Keep smiling. x
