Little Wins This Week #8


Little Wins This Week is about remembering that little things add up to make a big difference. It is about counting small blessings, however insignificant they may seem. Little Wins is about being mindful, staying positive and making each day count.

The ‘Beast from the East’ brought a lot of snow and freezing temperatures. All that cold seems to have given me brain freeze and a whole week has gone by with me doing next to nothing. I have not blogged, exercised or cooked. And yet, this week saw a real breakthrough that means more than any of these and counts as a big win.

M and I have decided to make a conscious effort to rekindle the spark in our marriage. We have been together for more than twenty years, and when you are together for that long, you start taking each other for granted. It’s one thing being extremely comfortable with your partner; it’s another to be complacent about your relationship. We have laid down the rules (I will blog about these at a later date) and as things stand, I am feeling exactly like I did when we first got together all those years ago. A big win!

We have started playing badminton as a family. It all started a couple of weeks ago when we met up with friends and ended up playing a mixed doubles match. J wanted to join in, but seen as we did not have a child-sized racquet, he couldn’t. We have since bought him one and been to our local leisure centre for an hour-long badminton session. I am hoping to make this a regular feature in our weekly family calendar.

Since I have committed to the Coast To Coast (Way of theRoses) bike ride this summer, M decided I needed a new bicycle. I was riding around on a hybrid, which is no longer fit for purpose. We went to a bike shop on Sunday and have booked a test ride for this week. I am so excited and cannot wait to go out cycling again.

These are my Little Wins This Week. What have yours been?
