Deafness… bovvered? Course not!

Today is Thankful Friday and I am immediately thankful that I didn't keep thinking it was Saturday, which is what I initially thought when I woke up this morning!

I am also thankful that NikNak and I have planned some baking practise over the weekend! She's gonna help me work out how to bake the giant cupcake that's going to be the top tier of her wedding cake and then Country Boy 1 is going to eat it!

Thankful Fridays have become something of an institution here at Deafinitely Girly. I like them. They're a great way to remind me of all the amazingly fantastic people and things in my life...

Good grief I sound a little Like Pollyanna and the Glad Game right now don't I?

But I think it's important to recognise these things otherwise it's much easier to focus on the negatives...

On the days that I wake up with this incredible optimism, I often test myself with things to see how unwavering the feeling is, and to see how strong it's making me.

One of the things I test it with is my deafness.

'Am I bovvered?' I ask myself

'No,' is the reply...

Obviously if you asked me to do a phone interview with an Irish boyband or work in a call centre then obviously the answer would be yes, very bovvered. But right here, right now, in my life...

Totally not bovvered.

Everything is just fine the way it is.

And for that, I am thankful.
