Reasons to be cheerful - 28th September 2017


Wow, what a week! Here are my reasons to be cheerful...

1) New Job
I started a new job this week, outside writing and education, but I am so excited by the whole thing.

I'm going to be working on the shop floor for an amazing company, with a great bunch of people. Fun times are definitely ahead.

2) Autumn
I love the onset of autumn, the snuggly clothes, cwtching up with a hot chocolate and a good book, collecting conkers.

3) All about me
I signed up to do a challenge this week in a Facebook Group I belong to that was designed to make you more visible to clients and customers. It was designed to last all week and I made exactly one day of it before I got it crystal clear in my head that I actually didn't want to be more visible.

Actually I realised that I want to invest my energy in and on myself and the projects that I'm really interested in and that means being a bit *gasp* selfish.

I'm going to be focusing on me and my family and sharing the things that I'm interested in, so there'll be more blogging and maybe even some vlogging and going live on Instagram.

All in all this has been a great week and it's left me really excited for what's coming up in the weeks ahead. Things are looking good. 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.
