Reasons to be cheerful

A bit late this week, but here's my reasons to be cheerful.

For more information on what Reasons to Be Cheerful (#R2BC) is all about please check out this post from Michelle at Mummy from the Heart for a full description.

Friends. Again, I know! I have had a rough week mentally, feeling really crap, and really didn't want to go out. But it was my friend's birthday, wasn't a huge night and they made me feel a little better. 

Internet. I discovered a new money saving household tip this week. A blocked toilet can be cleared with a mop in a black bag, (not carrier bags as they have safety air holes). It creates a better vacuum than a plunger. Although wish I'd figured this out earlier in the day!

Pinterest. I'm trying to force myself to do a bit of crafting. I love Pinterest for ideas, but like (oh so) many people, I pin and never do, so this week I ordered some Mod Podge and am trying some image transfer canvases.

Sleep! Not something I do without medication often. My daughter can now pull herself up in her cot, so she has given up on sleep whilst we go through another 'Mummy, I don't want to sleep, look what I can do' stage, so I'm enjoying what sleep I can get.

Oh and as an added bones, I'm running a competition with Warner Bros. on the blog too, you could win a copy of Jack the Giant Slayer on Blu-ray.

Apologises for not commenting on blogs this week, I do still read them, even if I don't comment.  

Over to you, what are your reasons to be cheerful this week?

  1. Glad you're getting some sleep - it's my favourite thing in the whole world since I've had kids! Take good care of yourself, and don't sweat about the things you don't achieve. Be happy about those you do xxx

  4. Love the internet for tips! How did people manage in crises without it? Especially lone parents like me, for whom all this stuff is like a foreign language! Glad you're getting sleep, it's so precious x
