Gloom and Doom....

I've been gloomy for the last few days. I love the word gloomy; to me it conjures up a dark black cloud just hovering, foretelling bad times, but never causing them. I'm sure that there is irony in loving the word gloomy, but hating the feeling.

No more. I've had enough. I need to focus on the positive more, and stop dwelling on the negatives, and dragging myself into the depths of gloom (for some reason I want to have a music file of the theme from Jaws before the word gloom, but that would just be excessive!).

I've taken steps. I've got my act together and finally booked my car in for a service. I've made a hair appointment. I've invited the family over for lunch on Sunday. I've started researching beach accommodation for October/November. No half measures here.

I'm really excited. I told my Mum that the real reason I've invited them all for lunch is to show off my new hair. I'm really looking forward to just spending some time with all of my family, sharing food, stories, and laughter.

And seriously, how can anyone stay gloomy after a conversation with the smallest sister, who was insistent that her middle name is grapes. Oh to be three again...

I love that she insists her middle name is grapes. that is really sweet.

you know, my youngest for MONTHS would only respond to the call of "Spirit, stallion of the cimmeron." Seriously. I'm glad she's out of that particular phase.

It can't really have effect, I believe this way.
