Reasons to be cheerful - 17th May 2018

Well, what a busy week this is has turned out to be.
On Saturday I had my writing group where I shared this piece
The idea was to write a piece of fiction in a non-fiction style, so I chose the sort of notice you'd see in a hotel or bar.
I also thought it would be a good idea to do a Facebook Live and read some of my poems and flash fiction, you can view it on my Facebook Page. I discovered that I much prefer reading to a live audience (weird I know).
The sun is shining here, so I've spent lots of time outside working in the gardening (doing gardening and taking lots of photos. 
And I caught up with one friend for coffee and lunch yesterday and I'm catching up with another friend tomorrow.
I've also been upping my walking and cutting down on my eating, as I need to lose some weight and also re-adopt some healthier lifestyle habits.
And finally... I went to the cinema with my son to see Avengers: Infinity War. If you haven't been yet, I can highly recommend it.
What are your reasons to be cheerful this week?

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.
