Surprisingly after the miserable cold wet day yesterday that to day was a pleasant looking day to day with blue skies as well as sunshine.
Not the day I'd expected it to be, I thought we would get more rain seems we've got lucky.
It was very noticeable how difficult life has become for me recently, despite this Richie and I still manage to have a laugh which is wonderful.
The curvature of my spine is making everything more complicated; now that I have again managed to cope with being showered and dressed I am sanguine about life.
At the moment Richie is in the kitchen making dinner, which will be a delicious cottage pie with shards of cheese on top of the mash potatoes.
I'm looking forward to eating dinner and then not too long afterwards being able to enjoy Tuesday edition of later with Jools Holland on BBC2.
They are reasons enough for me to be cheerful about life on this very dark Tuesday early November evening, plenty of reasons to be cheerful.
