Reasons to the cheerful 4th August 2017 #R2BC

It's a loooong time since I've taken part in this linky... But I'm back.

Here are my reasons to be cheerful this week.

1) How my garden is growing
I've been back in this house a year now and I've made a start at growing fruit and vegetables. I've got green beans and tomatoes coming along nicely and I've already harvested 4lbs of blackberries.

I'll be looking to grow a lot more next year, but watch this space for recipes using the stuff I'm growing and to see my plans for next year.

2) Mad cat lady
I've had the cats for a whole month now and they're just beginning to venture outside. The more timid of the two is being far more adventurous, which has been really interesting to see.

3) Self care
I spent the whole of July focusing on self care and look after myself much better and I'm planning to keep at it. Another one to watch this space for.


  1. Welcome back, like me it looks like you've started afresh with a new blog.. Good to read good news, especially the self care, I find it hard to do, even though I know it's important x

Reasons to be cheerful - 5th October 2017

It's a quickie this week... I'm still loving my job and really glad that I made the move. I submitted two commissioned articles to editors and they were happy. I'm off on a trip, a couple of nights away (more on that next week). Hope you've had a great week too.

Reasons to be cheerful - 7th December 2017

1) After a day of sawing, drilling, cutting, etc, etc, and then a new bit in the boiler...We have gas! Yes, our heating, hot water and cooker are now working - the gas is fixed! SO happy after 12 days without it.

2) This morning Boyzilla was greeted by a dead RAT outside the sitting room. Whilst yucky (but not as yucky as if I'd had to clean it up), it makes me hugely proud that my cats are, well, cats.

3) The two planning tools I ordered for 2018 to help me move forward with my plans to do more writing have arrived and I'm looking forward to spending big chunks of the next four days exploring them and planning for a fantabulous year.
