1. TV series, easier to fit into my daily life.
2. Norah Linton from the Billabong series. I'm currently reading the series for the umpteenth time, but for the first time out loud to my family. Her life is very different to mine, but because I've read it so often, she's like an old friend and I tear up regularly.
3. When things are unusually unpredictable and out of my hands.
4. About how much I can achieve in a day, or an hour or even in the 15 spare minutes I have before I have to go out!
5. A morning with my husband doing something relatively pedestrian as renewing my passport (at the Australian Embassy in Tokyo) turned into several hours to be out together without children. Yay!

Deb said...

1. TV. Shorter but enjoyable over a longer period of time. Nice to see the characters unfold as you go. Movies are too intense.

3. Bedtime.
4. School speech nights. Everything has finished and didn't go so badly after all. Perhaps it might all turn out well in the end.
5. Good friends. Cliche but I've been deeply grateful for them this week and I feel like I've only just realized how blessed I am by them.
