I was walking through town today and got chatting to someone who asked if I’d won something. I haven’t – for a change, and when I asked why she said I look like I’ve won something.

It got me thinking for the rest of the day and I’ve decided I have won something. I’ve won my life back and my spring in my step, my sparkle in my eyes and my lust for life.

I feel quite invincible at the moment and I’m looking forward to what the future holds…..even if in the next few days it will be expensive car insurance. I know things are on the turn and for the better. I can feel it and it feels wonderful!!

Don’t have a Blue Monday

Tomorrow is Blue Monday, apparently the most depressing day of the year. Christmas is over, the decorations are down, the bank accounts are empty, the days are short and the weather is shite…..but it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom.

Our Havin’aLaugh coffee morning is on tomorrow at The Blind Tiger, Stephen’s Street car park, Sligo from 10am – 12 noon. Come along for a social meet-up for a coffee and a chat. All are very welcome. Bring a friend or meet a new friend. You pay for whatever drink/food you want and if you want to donate a few bob to the charity that would be wonderful too. The Havin’ a Laugh Charity promotes Life enhancing activities for positive mental health. Enjoy this monthly social occasion for your own sense of well-being and every few months there will be a raffle and fundraiser for the Havin’ a Laugh Charity.

Hope to see some of you there.
