I choose happiness


I’ve neglected the part of my blog that I dedicate to positive thoughts, so here’s a few…

I could choose to moan about:

  • The weather (it got really chilly today), but the nip on my cheeks is refreshing.

  • The rather large steel water tank sitting right in the middle of our half-demolished boat – but it means we are another step closer to finishing the renovations.

  • The mess I am living in (it’s a work-site) – but its kind-of fun and a great excuse for not doing any housework!

  • The forty-five minute cycle to the supermarket – but it’s keeping me fit and healthy

I am in charge of how I feel and today I choose happiness. Enjoy your day, every day!

Choose happiness and have fun. Learn to laugh at life's little challenges!

….. and our books are doing rather well….

take a look – there’s chapters you can peruse before you buy….. Of Foreign Build and Cruisers’ AA

  1. Choosing happiness is always a good start….


  2. I like your choice in life. Things do go wrong and you do feel down but there is always a positive side if you look for it and a good giggle always helps. I am afraid I have reached the grumpy old man age where no one can do anything right including myself. I think it is an age all men go through but it is a giggle.


  3. It’s freezing here, but I’m snug and warm in my beloved barge and reading about you arriving in Bali. Life can’t be that bad! 🙂

    • That seems so long ago – Bali – we can’t believe we’ve been to all the places we have……. it is chilly here – but we are snug too – I spend longer and longer in bed each morning (on the computer!) – Noel brings me tea, so it is rather pleasant – and he gets up much earlier than me and puts the heating on – sigh! hard life! 🙂
