We've survived another week and now it's time to Celebrate The Small Things.
I have quite a big thing to celebrate this week, and that is ... I have a website! I've been umm-ing and aah-ing about it for ages, and I've been 'building' websites on those free providers, but I finally got around to finishing one off and paying for it. The free options are good, but they give you an awful web address, like www.rebeccahgiltrow.flurb.com/blurghdiblurgh.rebeccah (ha! I made that up, but you get the idea). So now I am the proud owner of da-da-da
It's quite exciting to have one of those website thingies. I know I have a blog, but a website properly advertises me as an author, and my books.
I'm also celebrating Book Group this week. Last month we read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Burrows. I read this book a few years ago, so was glad to read it again. I really enjoyed it both times. It's a fairly easy read, and the story drags you in pretty much straight away. It's about recovering from the Nazi occupation of Guernsey, which is obviously a horrible subject, but it's really worth reading.
I can still touch my toes, which has really made me happy. My Pilates teacher has put together a little instruction booklet for stretching the legs, and is going to sell that along with a stretchy band, so next time I see her I'm going to buy one, just to keep myself fit and flexible.
I've found another blog hop to get involved in. I've joined up to What's Up Wednesday, which encourages readers and writers to note down their progress. I think three blog hops per week is enough to keep me busy - Express Yourself on Monday, What's Up Wednesday on Wednesday, and Celebrate The Small Things on Friday. Other bloggers are very friendly and supportive, which is great, and I also really enjoy reading about what other people are getting up to. This blogosphere is an interesting place.
Work is still good. I love my job; some of the people aren't particularly agreeable, but the job is enjoyable. I took it upon myself to organise a very messy book display this week, and it looks so much better after a bit of time and care. It's kind of hidden away at the back of the library, but it frustrated me every time I tried to find a book and couldn't because all the books were shelved in a random order. It now looks very pretty, and it's so much easier to find things.
And of course I'm celebrating my Lily and my parents. They brought her to meet me from my book group, and Lily was so excited to see me. Whatever has upset me (if anything) during the day, seeing her smiling face always makes me smile. I don't know what I'd do without her.
What are you celebrating this week?
