Day 304 Costume. Getting ready for Halloween, despite the shops being full of many items and pubs advertising events, I have NO idea if anyone will knock on the door.
Day 305 Scare. Sitting on the doorstep with Bob, waiting for the trick or treaters to come, we were out of sweets within half an hour.
Day 306 Wow. Handed my notice in at work today, arriving at work at 6am and not leaving till 4pm every day, enough is enough.
Day 307 Bright. Not a good idea to stay up this late when I have to get up at 5am every morning.
Day 308 Cuddle. In the absence of a physical cuddle, a bacon butty, new nails and rum and coke will do.
Day 309 Sparkle. Global Village fireworks every Thursday and Friday at 9pm.
Day 310 Fire. Trying to create an ambience but hubby blew them out, too hot already in the house.
Looking for a One Daily Positive has certainly helped me more than I could have imagined. It's made me look for the good every single day, even when I've been ill, my family have needed me or I've needed them, when I've been lonely, when times have been difficult, when we've packed up our entire lives and moved continents, when the kids left home.
I'd love it if you could join in with me.
Please feel free to add your One Daily Positives.
I don't have any rules, about liking, reading and commenting or badges you have to add to your blog and you don't have to have a daily positive everyday.
Feel free to add #OneDailyPositive on social media so others can follow your posts.

Sorry to hear work hasn't worked out for you, those long days must be a killer. We only has one trick or treater this year, last year, like you I ran out! #366ReplyDelete
i really dont need those levels of stress in my lifeDelete
Sorry to hear you've handed your notice in but completely understand - the targets and hours and stress sometimes just aren't worth it. I get in for 7.30 and that's bad enough. Halloween was mad here too - dog looks cute though! XReplyDelete
poor dog was slightly baffled by his hatDelete
ah thats a shame about your job, but as long as you know you have done the right thing then that is what counts. It must be very hard uprooting your life and moving across the other side of the world, away from family and friends, and in all that heat! I am sure as much as a bacon butty, lovely new nails and a drink help, they are not the same. It must be especially tough when you have not long visited the Uk. Sending you (hugs). xxReplyDelete
thank you, i sometimes wonder what normal is these daysDelete
what a shame about feeling unfulfilled and overworked, but maybe handing in your notice was the best thing for your mental well being, Hope you manage to find something else that you enjoy more.ReplyDelete
great fire works.
love your wow picture and chuckled at hubby blowing out your candles
i certainly feel much better since i made my decisionDelete
It sounds like you made the right decision to hand in your notice. You gave it your best shot, but it just wasn't right for you. Fireworks every Thursday and Friday? People moan about having a few either side of bonfire night, I'm not sure what they would think of having them twice a week every week!ReplyDelete
Great idea to look for a positive in every day. I will ponder on that!
global village is in the desert so no one around to bother with the noise, i just can't help but think about the expenseDelete
It does sound like the right decision, although it's a shame it has to be that way. Hope you find other things to fill your time. Halloween sounds fun.ReplyDelete
I'm sure i'll find plenty to do and will be doing a lot more travelDelete
Good on you...if it wasn't right you then it was the right decision to make. Love the dogs hat!ReplyDelete
the dog wasn't too impressedDelete
It must have been a hard decision to make to leave your job. Early mornings, long days and stress isn't worth it. I'm sure you'll find something more fulfilling somewhere down the line.ReplyDelete
We live on quite a dark little lane so don't get any Halloween visitors. They prefer to go to the estate above us.
it was quite an emotional decision to make, but i'm pleased i'm leavingDelete
