Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

Reasons to be Cheerful is a great round up of the week so far which leaves me feeling positive even though some parts may have been tough. This week Midge has been off school with her chickenpox and Little A has been less than willing to sleep. I discovered the other day that he has a back tooth coming through so lets all wish that to come through quick please!!

1) Today I went to the Osteopaths in town. I have been suffering with a bad back for quite some time. My Osteopath is a really, really lovely man who took me completely seriously and made me feel listened to which can be so rare today. He got the spot straight away and found other areas which cause me pain. I even got some good back cracks out of it which was a-mazing (I'm odd, I love my back being cracked and used to get my sister to walk on it!) I'm feeling good and positive about my next appointment.

2) I saw my dentist this week and have been told my teeth are very nice and my gums are great. How's that for making you feel good? I also have a 'brilliant' spine in case you were wondering...

3) We all had a lovely day today. I went out for some lunch, did some food shopping and bought the children some clothes for our holiday to Cambridge in June. Our train tickets arrived on Monday which was incredibly quick so all we need now is a big suitcase and some tips on keeping 2 young children happy on a 7-8 hour train!

Hope you have some Reasons to be Cheerful this week to.

  1. Great reasons Hannah. Wish my dentist would tell me my teeth are great...I need a filling! Not looking forward to it. 7-8 hr journey with the kids is a long time on the train. I would take a DS, something to play a movie on and lots of colouring books. Our Granddaughter likes to pretend to be a ticket lady, so I always take old tickets with us for her to play with. It keeps her entertained for ages x

    1. Oh thank-you! I had a filling 6 months ago so i'm not all perfect! Very pleased to have had an easier appt this time round though. Thanks for all those tips my 2 are much like your Granddaughter so I will take them on board! x

  2. Any visit to the dentist where you hear everything is fine makes for a great week! In the spirit of your post, I am happy that our house didn't get too flooded this week. Some weeks are better than others;)

    1. Ohh i'm glad you didn't get flooded either!!

  3. Ooh I like the sound of that osteopathy! Never thought of trying before but seems like a good idea...

    Happy A to Zing from www.mummyisagadgetgeek.co.uk

    1. Oh gosh honestly give it a try it was amazing! Can't wait for my next session!

  4. Sounds like a ton of great reasons to stay positive =) When I had to take a 10 hour car trip with my 2 year old, I purchased a bunch of $1 things, wrapped them all, and gave him 1 every hour. Worked like a charm. That and lots and lots of movies. Good luck!

    1. Thanks for all the tips Danielle i'll be sure to visit to bargain shops before we go! x

  5. Lovely positive post xxx now i should make an appointment for the dentist...


    1. Yes you should! Well..maybe you should. I personally hate the damn place it takes ages to get the nerve to go! xx

  6. Brilliant reasons to be cheerful hun. Glad you are starting to make progress with you back :-)

    Laura x x x


    1. Thanks Laura :) It's long overdue so I am too. xx

  7. Very good reasons to be cheerful. Although you've reminded me to make a dentist's appointment :(

    PS, I've nominated you for the Super Sweet Blogging Award. No worries if you don't want to do it though :)


    1. Ah thank you for leaving a comment! Thanks for the award I shall have a look! x

  8. The other week I had a job interview at a dentist's but it wasn't for me. I'm scared of them and hadn't been for over a decade until last year when she gave me a dreadful overhaul that sent bits of tooth flying all over the place. If you find a good one you're doing well. So many in my opinion try to make money out of cosmetic fiddling.

  9. Sounds like good news and keeping little ones happy for 7-8 hours on a train, ohh that's a toughie! Mich x
