This Weeks Reasons to be Cheerful

Hello! It's just gone midnight and I know I should be sleeping but I find it so hard to get rest when Husband is still working. This week he's been doing some unpaid overtime until 3am so he can qualify for a fork lift license. Probably sounds rubbish to most but in a factory job it's pretty useful and it means he'll have a national qualification which is always a great thing. 

Here are my Reasons to be Cheerful this week:

1) I have gone back into my childhood and re started an awesome collection of Care Bears. Everyone remembers the Care Bears and how cute they are right? I used to adore watching them on the television when I was a little girl but I hadn't thought twice about them since my Little Ones were born (only to complain how over done they are now much like Noddy, Rupert Bear and the rest..) Anyway, I found a bear in my local charity store and couldn't walk away. I bought it for a pound and all of a sudden I needed more!

I plan on adding one a month so I don't kill my bank. Some are quite rare now!

2) Our Easter holidays are going pretty well. We haven't done anything amazing although this Saturday we're hoping to escape on a bus somewhere (possibly where we used to live!!) if we do I can't wait because I used to live in a really beautiful, rural area. You can't beat that.

3) Things are getting on top of me a bit at the moment I can't lie.Money, mess, clutter the children's room being damp and in need of decorating (but when? How do you paint a child's room when there is no where else to sleep and no where else to go? Answers on a postcard please) Despite all of these niggling concerns I have a wonderful Husband who works very hard, I have a determination to make savings and 2 wonderfully, healthy children. I really am perfectly content once I brush the crap aside.

I hope you're all having a good week as well. If you have some Reasons to be Cheerful, please do hop on over to Claire here where you can read and share your cheerful posts too.

Love the Care Bears, I used to have a blue one...wonder where it went....! As for the decorating, get them up, start early then clear the room out. Paint by lunch so it has time to dry. Paint before bed. Then let them camp out in the lounge for the night and make a thing of it!

Feeling your pain and things can get better for you. Believe that, take baby steps and they will.
Day out sounds a great idea. Revisiting old places can give us a fresh perspective on things.
Loving your charity shop finds! You should link up with the Me and My Shadow blog hop Magpie Monday if you don't already

I can empathise with no 3! It's why I do the linky to make me more positive. I never "got" the Care Bears as a kid ;-)

I know the feeling of trying to decorate when there's no where for them to go! I do all my painting while they're in school! Its chaos x

School is a good idea for one but for the 2 year old i may need to think further! x

Brushing the crap aaside is a good way forward! We decorated the kids room by putting them in our bed and we slept in the lounge for a couple of days.
