Reasons to be cheerful - 25th January 2018

Well, this has been a week, but there have been plenty of reasons to be cheerful, so here we go...

1) I don't have flu (yay). I wrote on Tuesday about how I thought I had flu. On Monday I felt absolutely dreadful all day. I've had a snuffly virus since way before Christmas, but it hasn't turned into anything more than that. Thankfully, by Tuesday it had turned into a little bit of a head cold, but nothing major, so I'm dosing up with lemsip, but I'm carrying on much as normal.

2) I cracked a new market for publication. I still get a buzz every time I see my name in print.

3) I've invested heavily in myself this week, not in terms of lots of money (though I did buy a new Mantaray shirt because (oops), it was half price in the sale. I've also spent time working ON my business, thinking carefully about what I'm doing now and how I want to develop things this year.

And I've spent a fair bit of time with my family, having fun.

So, how has your week been?

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.
