This Lent I'm Giving Up Moaning!

I don't normally 'do' Lent but I guess it's not a bad thing giving up something, particularly if it's something not good for you, or something that makes you think more about your life. So this year I'm not giving up chocolate, or coffee, or even Facebook! I'm giving up moaning. I don't think it's going to be easy, particularly when things are not so good at home at the moment. (I lost my car today, but I'm not moaning because it's not as if I can drive anymore!) We also have another funeral on Monday, a close family member, and I've had to arrange it all along with my Other Half. But, grief and mourning are not really moaning, it's a natural process which we cannot deny ourselves.

I will however, not be sweating the small stuff. I'm going to bite my tongue at minor issues that I'd normally complain about. I'm going to be nice to my family all the time (oh wow! how tough is that?)
And I'm definitely not going to be posting Facebook Status' full of gripes and woe.

No, it's positivity all the way for me, well, at least for the next forty days....and then it will be Easter, my favourite time of year (not just because of the chocolate!)


I'd like to start my positive Lent with the kid's parents evenings.
As always Star and Boo have been really good at school, always trying their best and on their best behaviour. They may not be the most intelligent in their classes but they always make me proud and their teacher's always have such good things to say about them.

I'm really proud of my Little Man though. I was worried because he has been in trouble recently for his behaviour. Thankfully, his teacher realises that he is mostly immature because he is in fact immature! He is an August baby and the youngest in the class. Most of his classmates are already a year older than him. However, despite his little mishap he is a kind, caring and helpful little boy which has his teacher wrapped around his little finger with his charming personality. Best news of all though was that he may be immature in age and behaviour, but his actual work is well above average and he is one of the top learners in the class. Well done Little Man!
