25th January 2017

1. I was blessed to get some very valuable help from Kirsteen with the blog I write for WHISC, which helped pull it into shape,
2. I was blessed that I had the sense to go to college this afternoon to see the work I did yesterday, which helped me rethink things.
3. I am blessed to have completed this exercise now. Choosing 3 blessings every day has helped me transform from being in a state of despair to one of positivity.

1. I am blessed to be back at college properly again
2. I was blessed that my lecturer was kind enough to help me hang my sculpture as I'm rubbish at DIY!

21st January 2017

1. I was blessed to see a film about Frida Kahlo for free today.
2. I was blessed to enjoy a very nice pizza at Bella Italia with Hilary today.
3. I was blessed to enjoy a slice of sponge cake and a glass of cider when I got home, courtesy of my friends Suzy and Helon.

Everything Allowed

We lay in the grass together
The sun peaking through the clouds
I thought this would last forever
Everything allowed

Marching through the streets, holding hands
Waving to the cheering crowds
Round of applause for the banned
Everything allowed

In Manchester, the sun shone
On the train, my tears fell proud
In the distance, you were gone
Everything allowed

We had the answer for it all
So why do I question how
Love left me feeling so small?
Everything allowed

The ashes of my love I sow
Into the furrow we ploughed
In rain and sun the new love grows
Everything allowed

20th January 2017

1. I am blessed to have lived to see the day the USA made a loathsome reality tv star the most powerful man in the world! This was truly a 'momentous' day!
2. I am blessed that Mia's monthly flea treatment went smoothly today. It can be quite a palava sometimes!
3. I am blessed to have a new laptop and printer all installed and set-up for me - all courtesy of my DSA. It's pretty impressive kit! :)

19th January 2017

1. I was blessed to get really good marks for my college work last term. Much better than I expected! If I put a bit more effort in the next couple of years, I could get a first!
2. I was blessed to volunteer at WHISC again this afternoon. It boosts my self-esteem to feel I'm of use to people - especially when its a good cause.
3. I was blessed to see an improv performance this evening. It was great entertainment and gave me some good ideas for my play of what can happen on and off stage.

18th January 2017

1. I'm blessed that I seem to find writing easy. I've written 13 pages of a play in the last 24 hours!
2. I'm blessed that I have such a great mentor as Sarah, giving me such valuable feedback on my play.
3. I'm blessed to have started watching Benidorm - it's dialogue is dynamite! Its great inspiration for my play! :)

16th January 2017

1. I was blessed to get the repairs I needed doing on my car today at National. Not only did they save me money but they also spotted one of my wheels had been put on the wrong way round! I'm never taking my car to that Hyundai dealer ever again!
2. I was blessed that Mia let me sleep in until 7am this morning, when my alarm went off. She's normally in from 6am, trying to get me out of bed to feed her!
3. I am blessed to have tidied my lounge a bit. I normally can't be bothered but I'm having guests tomorrow evening, so I thought I ought to. The room feels nicer - more relaxed - for it anyway.

15th January 2017

1. I was blessed to be allowed to express my opinion on the BBC documentary, 'Transgender Kids: Who Knows Best?', on a website I edit.
2. I was blessed to spend all day indoors without feeling restless. It doesn't often happen!
3. I am blessed to own a portable DVD player that allows me to watch films from the comfort of my couch (or anywhere!) when my iPad has run out of battery - as happened today.
