It's coming. The clues are all around us. On entering our local Tesco at the weekend, we immediately saw a mountain of selection tins of chocolates - begging us to take them home. What is it about selection tins that you don't think of at other times of year? They are a sure sign that Christmas is (according the the shops) on its way.
Of course with 2 tins on offer for £7 we kindly liberated a couple of tins and have given them a good home. Hidden away in the spare bedroom to keep us away from temptation. Because I know that the minute that seal is opened, just one little chocolate covered fudge will never be enough and I'll be back in Tesco buying more. Those damn marketing people know me so well ...
So what else has happened since we last met? Well, I did get going on the binding on the quilt. It's not quite finished because as soon as I pick it up to do the hand stitching in the evenings and lay it on my lap, Coco appears, jumps up and makes herself comfortable on it.
The growth mindset sentence of the week at work is
"Embrace challenge; persist in the face of setbacks.”
My greatest challenge this weekend? It was the first Fitsteps exercise class of the new term after 6 weeks summer break. Turns out going for long dog walks doesn't keep you quite as fit as a full on dance class. Setbacks? Could not remember any of the routines all the way through so ended up facing in the wrong direction more than once. But persistence pays off and we all ended the class on a high note.
Have a good week!
