Some days you just need something a little extra to put a smile on your face. This week has had a lot going on, too much on my to do list, my voice has been unreliable (fallout from a little cold) and I needed to take a couple of days off work....which I despise doing. Contrary to what some of my friends might think (ahem...you know who you are!), I know that my workworld will survive without me. I just really don't like missing out, being out of the loop and frankly, if I am away, it just means way more work for me when I get back.
So between parent-teachers conferences at the boys' high school (which put many smiles on my face actually), I popped into one of our favourite bakeries and bought some treats. I ran into Nicky who was picking up treats for an evening event and added some happy face cookies onto her order. We chatted for awhile which is nice to do in real life for a change and off she went. I ended up adding some of the classic happy face cookies to my order to, just cause!
When Neil and I got home from the evening set of conferences, I saw a huge bouquet of flowers on our kitchen counter. Sarah had thoughtfully brought by some "hope you feel better" flowers for me, which of course brought a huge smile to my face.
