this is lemonade

A mindful, grateful, creative life: Life constantly hurls lemons at us. I’m on a mission to make lemonade as best I can, by God’s grace.

Mo Farah Running Away From Things

Follow this link to see a serious tribute to one of our great Olympians from London 2012…it is evidence that some of us are self-medicating in a bid to overcome Olympics withdrawal syndrome.




I feel something like this (see below) today. Except, possibly not as pretty. In fact, not half as pretty.

It’s got nothing to do with the party being over because, well, we’re just taking a break before the Paralympics to be honest. (Anyone else wondering why they extinguished the Olympic flame before we’ve actually finished? It does feel like a strange concept to have two flames…) And we’ll be partying well into 2013 at this rate, whether you’re joining us or not…but right now…as I said:

Photo A Day Aug | SIMPLE

[This post is one in a series inspired by Fat Mum Slim’s photo a day challenge. I’m exploring ideas and often writing off the back of the idea of the day. It’s a chance to relax a bit in August but also do something slightly different. If you take part let me know – I’d love to see how you get creative with the daily posts!]
