Friday Focus 04/03/22 – Lent

This week has been a busy one with the start of Lent and being involved in organising various church activities happening during Lent. It’s also been a busy week with various meetings as well. Given the busyness of my calendar and to-do list at the moment, I did wonder if I’ll be giving up sleep for Lent! Thankfully, I’ve managed to juggle most things and not have to stay up too late too often.

What I’ve been grateful for this week:


Sophie in her tap costume holding her gold medal; me and Sophie in front of a 'Sing 2' poster; Thomas with Elsa and Spiderman at his friend's party; Thomas on the trampoline at the park; Thomas eating a pancake topped with squirty cream, bananas and strawberries; Thomas's picture with a heart covered in yellow, blue and orange paint; Sophie dressed as Mary Poppins against an aerial view of London - "#365daysofgratitude 2022 - Week 9"


  • Day 56 – I am grateful that Sophie enjoyed her second dance festival. So proud of her for dancing so well and for getting another gold medal for 1st place in her tap solo.


  • Day 57 – I am grateful for an afternoon of Mummy-Sophie time enjoying our first trip to the cinema in a couple of years.


  • Day 58 – I am grateful that Thomas enjoyed going to a birthday party this afternoon.


  • Day 59 – I am grateful for just being able to enjoy the ordinary everyday moments of family life.


  • Day 60 – I am grateful for pancakes.


  • Day 61 – I am grateful for some artwork from Thomas.


  • Day 62 – I am grateful for books, imagination and a little bit of Photoshop magic.



Other things that have made me smile this week:

  • Thomas joining in with the World Book Day fun and dressing up as Peter Pan.
