Beating the cold

In my previous post, I was mainly negative. Sorry about that.

Other than the work issue, I have felt more positive this last week or so.

Whether this is related or not I’m not sure, but I’ve actually booked three holidays. Yes, I know, three.

The first booked is for April. My friend has a gorgeous self-renovated French cottage which she has generously offered for me and my family. Add some really cheap Ryanair flights and half decent car rental and there you go! I’ve never been abroad alone with my children but I’m going for it. Life’s too short, and I want some wonderful memories for my children.

Next booked is a weekend away at half term with my walking friend. We’ve had some fantastic days out and weekends away until she weirded out on me last summer. We’ll, I’ve finally given in to her suggestions and we’re going to the Lakes in February and staying in an Airbnb cottage. I’ve never used them before but they’re certainly cheaper. I’ve come to the conclusion that not only do people make mistakes but they deserve a second chance too. She has been a fantastic friend to me and we have fun. I’m just going to remember that she sometimes lets me down and that no one is perfect. I’m going to try to not take that by heart.

Then this week, in a flurry of excitement, I have booked to go to Austria with the new friend I made last February. She lives in Ireland and we had a fantastic trip to the Lakes last summer. We have so much in common and get on really well. I am sooo excited about this trip. I’ve always wanted to go to Austria, but my inspiration came from a blog post:

We will be staying in Innsbruck – another fab Airbnb deal – but are planning trips to Seefeld, Salzburg and more. We love culture and museums, mountains trees and lakes and will be in our element.

It’s also given me a real incentive to get fit and healthy. I want to experience everything there and that’s means lots of walking. I don’t want to be the fat woman who is slowing my friend down.

I’m searching and planning positivity in my life, and it feels good. 😁
