Reasons to be cheerful - 5th April 2018

The sun is shining! That's reason enough to be cheerful, especially after all the rain we had yesterday.
Talking of yesterday, I enjoyed a lovely lunch out with my family to celebrate mum's birthday. It was lovely that the seven of us were together and were able to enjoy a leisurely lunch. We also decided to use public transport and mum rebelliously chose to sit at the back of the bus, we were like a gang of schoolkids!
My seeds are growing, which is very exciting. I "may", have erred on the side of caution and planted "slightly", more seeds than the number of plants that I actually need, but better safe than sorry.
And finally this week, having had a lovely couple of breaks over the last two weeks, I'm now back to work feeling positive and refreashed, so I've got lots of planning and writing done, and I have lots of ideas about where I want to go next.
What are your reason to be cheerful this week?

  2. The sun certainly lifts the mood! Yay to family lunches and growing things

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.
