The Positive Accountant Vol 1 Ed 6

The Positive Accountant - Vol 1, Ed 6

It's Mother's Day today, and it seems desperately sad that there are mothers all over the country - and indeed the world - who because of isolation - self imposed or otherwise - aren't seeing their children and grandchildren.

So, for any Mums out there who are affected by this, 'Happy Mother's Day !'

What are my positives today:-

1. I saw my Mum.  

2.  I went flying yesterday.  I know  I mentioned it already.  But as has been pointed out to me, referring to a landing as a positive is misleading as everyone who takes off lands - somehow.  So, I need to correct yesterday,'s post using the accepted definitions.  A 'good landing'  being one you walk away from, and a 'perfect landing' being one where the plane can be flown again.  So my positive (albeit from yesterday) is that  it was a perfect landing

3. I don't have to listen to Kiss FM tomorrow.

I normally do the school run and the favoured (ie demanded) station is Kiss FM.  I don't what's happened since I was a teenager, I used to be able to hear the words, and the DJ's were really intelligent people.  So tomorrow I can listen to Zoe Ball play Duran Duran, result !

One from someone else, Shaun from G&S Auto Services of Harleston (in his email headed 'The Positive Mechanic, Vol 1 Ed 1')says he enjoyed the weather on his broads cruiser.  

Now for something different...

It's Sunday.  

Last week I was forwarded the following words of Pope Francis.  And whilst you may or may not be a Christian, and may or may not be a Catholic, it really doesn't matter - the words mean the same.

Treat it either as a poem or a prayer, your choice.

"Tonight before falling asleep

think about when we will return to the street

When we hug again

When all the shopping will seem like a party

Let's think about the coffees that will return to the bar

the small talk, the photos close to each other

We think about when it will be all a memory but normality

will seem like an unexpected and beautiful gift

We will love everything that has so far seemed futile to us

Every second will be precious

Swims at the sea, the sun until late, sunsets, toast , laughter

We will go back to laughing together.

Strength and courage"

Until tomorrow, stay safe

Adrian Mole

We've been told to learn new skills, here's me developing one.

For several years we've been lucky enough to have cleaners, but no longer.  

I have been told this is a 'Dyson', the meaning of which I shall be googling later
