Hello Diary!

I have had such a fantastic week, I got a lot more than I bargained for, and i’m pleased to say it was all positive!

I went bowling for the first time since losing my sight, and I’ve got to say it was pretty amusing. With my Arthritis being so prevalent in my right wrist, I have learned to be ambidextrous 🙂 however that doesn’t extend to bowling, because I failed miserably!
However I adapted this and went back to acting like a young child, swinging the bowling ball in between my legs and rolling it down the aisle with both hands! I even managed to get 2 spares, pretty impressive I felt!

I also hosted my first ever #TribalChat – this happens every Tuesday from 8-9PM live on Twitter 🙂 I have never typed/engaged so fast on my phone in my life. I really enjoyed being a host for the evening, and loved the peoples responses to my questions 🙂

I went to Brighton for the day with 2 good friends, I’ve never been there before, so it was nice to go to a new place for the day and explore: a review/ roundup of the day is soon to come!

I found out I was shortlisted for the Brilliance in Blogging Awards, in the category of Inspire! I am still in shock!! You can read my excitement here, and vote for me if you’d like to. Oh, you know you want to 😉
These are the UK’s biggest blogging awards, and I somehow managed to get myself on the prestigious list!!

The exciting thing I was leaving you hanging until now is: my first serious review! I’m so happy that Baker Days gave me this opportunity 🙂 keep your eyes peeled, because it will be going live tomorrow, and there may be a cheeky competition in there too 😉

Gratitude List:

Sunshine, even though it was sleeting as we arrived in Brighton, it stayed sunny and warm throughout the whole day!
* Cake! I can’t really go without saying this, especially as I got to eat some yummy vanilla cake this week!
* Friendships – being able to spend quality time with friends this week has really and truly kept me on the up. I’ve been able to reconnect with friends I haven’t spoken to in a while, as well as solidifying the friendships I am making with the fabulous #Tribesters and other bloggers like Hol 🙂
* #Tribesters – seriously these ladies have been amazing this week, sharing and commenting on my posts, being the ones to tell me i’d been shortlisted, AND most importantly gone out of their way to support me as a visually impaired person. Adding Alt Tags to their pictures! AND THEN creating a logo for my blog!!
* Carvery – Gary and I went out for a Carvery this evening, and my my was it yummy! It was almost as good as my own Mothers cooking, almost! I definitely need to get my butt bak there again soon!
So, i’m extremely thankful to say I’ve had an amazing week! And I don’t know what i’d do without Gary and the #Tribesters in my life!
Apologies for the gratitude list being a bit samey, I might be grateful for the same things, but they are all for different reasons!

Until next time!
