Reason to be cheerful - 11th January 2018

R2BC at Mummy from the Heart
1) Back to work

I returned to work as a freelancer this week and I've managed to complete all the tasks I set myself. These mostly revolved around getting things organised and set up ready to move forward next week. It would have been super-easy to take a relaxed approach but I didn't, I've hit all my targets, which has been great.
2) More time for the important things

Working for myself means more flexibility about when and where I work and the ability to be around for my family and friends. It also means I can cook more, go out for more walks and just be more in control of things.
3) Filed my tax return
Yay! 'Nuff said.
4) Happy cats

Now I'm around more the feline masters - Harry especially - are thrilled. They follow me around and sleep in my office. So sweet!
So, those are my reasons to be cheerful this week, what are yours?


  1. Well done for hitting all your work targets this week, it does feel good when you are on top of things and as for the accounts being done, that's fabulous. Mich 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.
