Reasons To Be Cheerful

I'm a fan of Kate over at Kate on Thin Ice and always enjoy reading her blog. I have been reading her Reasons To Be Cheerful posts and often thought about writing one myself. I mean if I can find three reasons to be cheerful each and every week, then my depression can never win, right?

I went over to Michelle's blog, Mummy From The Heart..., to see where Reasons to be Cheerful 1, 2, 3 all started. Michelle posts her reasons to be cheerful every Thursday and provides a blog hop for those who wish to get involved (full details here). Which is exactly what I intend to do!

So what are my reasons to be cheerful today / this week:

1) I submitted a letter to the West Yorkshire Playhouse to apply for their So You Want To Be A… program / course (details here on Culture Vulture website). I found it an interesting experience to write the letter without it becoming a 'I would be suitable because...' speech. I'm not sure I submitted enough info or that any of it was relevant, but I did it! Yay me! 

2) I have an almost empty inbox! Actually two of them, G-d I'm good! *laughs*
I have been struggling a bit lately, and communications often suffer, which resulted in me having over-flowing inboxes, it's taken me a while and I still need to reply to some, but it's organised and I am back in control.

3) It's Mother's Day tomorrow (in UK) and my first one (although prematurely) as a mum. I have been assured that having a bump qualifies me to celebrate Mother's Day. 
Here's to all mothers

Isn't this a fab fun glass? I want!
