Reasons to be cheerful - 31st August 2017

A busy week this week, but here are my reasons to be cheerful...

1) Walking in the sunshine


Monday was a bank holiday and I took a walk with my mum and my son. There was cake, but it was okay, because I did LOADS of steps and active minutes!

It was lovely to be out with family walking, chatting and really not thinking about anything other than having fun.

2) Planning next steps


I created a vision board for the re-decoration of my kitchen. It's not something that needs to happen straight away, but it is something I want to get done in the near future. It's also one of my Eighteen before 2018 challenges, so I'm excited to be able to tick that one off.

3) Time with friends

Yesterday I spent time with my mum helping her to do some family history research (wow, it is SO easy to get caught up in it and for time to just disappear as you follow tracks of documents).

Then I caught up with one of my friends for a coffee and a chat about life in general. We banned work talk, which was a great and very successful idea.

It was lovely just to take some time out.

    1. That day was WAY out of the ordinary, I usually manage 8,000, even if I have to run up and down the garden or 'round the bedroom in the evening :-)

  3. Love researching family history although troublesome on my birth family side as so many burnt records in Ireland but found out loads about my adoptive family and my husband's too. Sunshine always cheers the soul I find. Very lovely reasons this week

    1. Yes, a lot of my maternal family are Irish, so we're in a similar boat

  4. Looks like a really sociable week and I'm now off to check out your 18 before 2018 - it sounds like a great idea (oftencalledcathy)

    1. Hi Candi, Yes the 18 before 18 is a great idea, hoping I can actually complete it :-)
