Reasons to be cheerful - 16th November 2017

R2BC at Mummy from the Heart
Eagle eyed readers will have noticed that I dropped off the blogging perch last month. No big dramas, stuff just happened and I got increasingly more and more busy, my focus changed and I didn't really sit down and get everything re-organised until this week.
Anyway, reasons to be cheerful...
1) My new job was a big risk, but it's been the best thing I've done all year! I love it and I also have more time to do other things, so it's a win, win situation.
2) These two: 

"We'll just sleep in the one bed mummy, it's fine"

3) My new-found energy and just being all-round happier, along with finding a group to attend every fortnight, has got me back into writing fiction, and I am loving it. 


  1. Welcome back! So glad its all working out for you and your cats are adorable

  2. Oh it sounds like you are on top of the world. Well done for getting it all together and fab that the job is working out so well. Mich x #R2BC

    1. I am indeed on the top of the world Michelle xx

  3. I'm working as a Sales Assistant in my local Flying Tiger Copenhagen store and it's such fun and I get to leave it at the door at the end of the day xx

    1. Glad you're enjoying it - I love the Tiger stores and I also love jobs that you don't take home with you!

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.
