So I've been back at the 'rents for the weekend. One of the bonuses of that is I get to see our family cat, Layla. She is very small for a cat, probably because she will only eat cat biscuits and nothing else. I took a picture of her in her favourite pose - cleaning herself, which she does obsessively. She even purrs while she does it.
She's a bit of a grumpy cow really, but she and I seem to understand each other. She used to sleep in my bedroom all the time when I lived there, and she goes back to doing that when I go back for the weekend. And for some reason we've never quite worked out, when she goes outside, she likes to leave the house via my bedroom window!!
I thought I would share something I started doing over the weekend as well. It's an idea from a book on codependency by Melody Beattie. Each day, you have to write a list of ten things you're grateful for. But, they can't all be good things; the idea is they should just be things that have happened that day, either good or bad, that you have no influence over. It's all about accepting things as they are and not stewing over what you can't change, but viewing it in a positive light. For example, yesterday one of my things that I was grateful for was that my family get so bloody annoying when they watch Strictly
Anyway, I've found it quite liberating thus far, so I thought I would share it Hope you've all had good weekends!
