This week is going by at a rather lovely and leisurely pace (can you tell it's been a good week so far?) I have a few reasons to be cheerful this week so I shall go ahead and spread my cheer.
1) It's October! It's turning out to be a rather nice (if not wet!) Autumn, Halloween is just around the corner, I can really go for my Christmas prep because it doesn't feel so far away and the main one, naturally, is that I turn 24 on the 29th! Birthday months are the best!
2) As I said this week has been lovely so far. Monday went well, Midge and I had a good walk to school, narrowly escaping the heavy rain. I let her take her scooter and after having a break and perhaps a bit of a growth spurt she is finally zooming around on the thing. I met my Dad for a spontaneous lunch, seen both parents on the same day, got a new desk from my brother so I can have somewhere to study and write to my pen pals and I spent the day with my Mum on Wednesday.
3) As i mentioned above I had a wonderfully spontaneous lunch with my Pop on Tuesday. He very kindly bought me lunch so the next outing is on me! It was so nice just being us two for a while and it was even better that he just happened to be in town after work and thought he'd call me. My lovely Husband suggested I ask him for lunch and I'm so pleased he thought of it.
I also spent Wednesday evening with my Mum. It was a soup night, yum! Mum listens to Midge read which is very sweet to see and hear. I also get help with bedtime! We caught up on the Bake Off which I record for her and chatted about life, as you do!
Lastly, I have a 'Mummy date' today but more on that later! I've known this Mum since college (I was 17 and a pupil and she was (and still is) the receptionist!) she's since had 2 children and one of them is only 4 months. Broody klaxon!!
I hope you're all feeling cheery now. Please have a look at my Year in Gifts post from yesterday as an extra bit of cheerfulness. It's actually more important to me because it's about making other people cheerful!
