Today I found a simple way to make me smile

So today started of rather miserably. The onset of a UTI is causing absolute chaos in my pelvic region. My uterus, Frank and my kidneys are all acting up, so I have to be honest and say I was feeling a little sorry for myself.

But I had a few thinks I needed to do today so I knew I had to change my train of thought. I cannot afford to feel defeated today, I needed my fight back. On my bedside locker I have been keeping a Yankee Candle; the wick had burnt out but there was still a good bit of wax in the bottom. I kept it because I love the smell of the candle, it reminds me of happy times and brings an instant warming comfort. This morning I looked at this candle and i had an idea.

I placed the candle in a pan of boiling water on a low heat, when all the wax had melted I poured some into bun cases and left to set.

Once set i popped one into my owl burner as a tartlet. All day I have enjoyed my favourite comforting scent, and it has lifted my mood and gave me more fight. Sometimes the simple pleasures make all the difference...you just have to find them.
