I've been watching Pooh all weekend. I'm finding the joy in it. 🤷🏾♀️
So I had my eye surgery yesterday morning, and I am now recovering at home. I was texting a friend to let them know I wouldn’t be attending prom this Saturday, and she and my other friend had come up with a plan for us to still take prom photos together!
They knew I’m not going to have enough energy for prom, but they still wanted to include me, and it just makes me feel so loved!
Today is #winnethepoohday celebrating the magic of the silly old bear, and the author that created him, who brought so much joy to people's hearts!
Although the books are sadly missing from my shelves (goals), I do have one book that our honey obsessed friend pays a visit to...
"The Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet" by Benjamin Hoff.
Where Mr. Hoff, along with our friends from the hundred acre wood explain how their day to day lives and actions emulate that of ancient Taoist (pronounced Daoist) principles.
😳 was my reaction too.
But it's an enchanting read, one made so by the constant interruptions of Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit, Eeyore, Owl and their stories, beautifully interwoven with Taoist teachings-
That offer some pretty special insights into the world and us in it...
Have you read this book?

Good Morning Mighty family friends
How are you all today
Because its blooming freezing cold this morning here in the UK
My hands are like blocks of icy
So the shops still had no flour at the weekend and YOU know how much I like my distraction of baking. So my lovely neighbour gave me a bag of her plain normal flour. Yes she popped it on my decking .
So today I'm going to try my hand at making her some cheese scones. If and I say IF they work I'll post a pic later ❤👀😂
An old friend posted me a recipe for scones at the weekend. She bakes and decorates cakes for a living. We stay in contact via fb.
So watch this space
Much love Tj

My beautiful daughter-in-law just dropped off some shopping at my door. Knocked stepped down the steps and stood back.
I came opened the door.
She looked so pale she has lost weight.
She has been working from home but is now working with the most vulnerable people in the UK with her bank. Offering them help and advice. Phoning them up daily to check up on them.
It's taking a huge toll on her. Myself and her own mum are at home shielding because of our own health. Unable to leave our own homes. Unable to see anyone unable to come within 2 metres of anyone even anyone with live with.
She burst into tears. I couldnt comfort her with my arms
I could only comfort her with my words and my puppys went to her with cuddles and their faces.
She said shopping was eerie quiet sombre spooky no one spoke it was like everyone was scary desperate.
I put the shopping away and had to wash my hands scrub off the virus. My hands are red now my psoriasis is in full flare on my knuckles again.
This feels like a nightmare of tears .
Will you sit by me!

It occurred to Pooh and Piglet that they hadn't heard from Eeyore for several days, so they put on their hats and coats and trotted across the Hundred Acre Wood to Eeyore's stick house. Inside the house was Eeyore.
"Hello Eeyore," said Pooh.
"Hello Pooh. Hello Piglet," said Eeyore, in a Glum Sounding Voice.
"We just thought we'd check in on you," said Piglet, "because we hadn't heard from you, and so we wanted to know if you were okay."
Eeyore was silent for a moment. "Am I okay?" he asked, eventually. "Well, I don't know, to be honest. Are any of us really okay? That's what I ask myself. All I can tell you, Pooh and Piglet, is that right now I feel really rather Sad, and Alone, and Not Much Fun To Be Around At All. Which is why I haven't bothered you. Because you wouldn't want to waste your time hanging out with someone who is Sad, and Alone, and Not Much Fun To Be Around At All, would you now."
Pooh looked and Piglet, and Piglet looked at Pooh, and they both sat down, one on either side of Eeyore in his stick house.
Eeyore looked at them in surprise. "What are you doing?"
"We're sitting here with you," said Pooh, "because we are your friends. And true friends don't care if someone is feeling Sad, or Alone, or Not Much Fun To Be Around At All. True friends are there for you anyway. And so here we are."
"Oh," said Eeyore. "Oh." And the three of them sat there in silence, and while Pooh and Piglet said nothing at all; somehow, almost imperceptibly, Eeyore started to feel a very tiny little bit better.
Because Pooh and Piglet were There. No more; no less.
