Reasons to be Cheerful

I've not joined in with this link up for a while but this week I feel like I need to try to grab some positives from my week. Things are tough mood wise at the moment. I'm up and down like a yoyo. Hubby has changed shifts so I'm getting used to having a tantruming Little A on my own as well as trying to do school things and pursue play groups to help A with his development. I feel a lot of pressure and am quite isolated at the moment. I feel I have little to look forward to. Still, we must look for those positives.

1) Monday was not a bad day. I had Midge off school who helped me do some shopping which was very helpful. I also managed to clean up and cook a roast. Just a shame about the whining and bickering in between!

2) I watched Midge do her Easter bonnet parade today which was nice. I also saw my niece and nephew too and they were happy enough bouncing around the stage, showing off as usual! We also made an Easter tree at an after school club. I've always wanted one and now I have one this year. I'm wondering if I can keep it alive and well for other occasions too!

3) I've made contact with an old school friend. We have not seen each other since my wedding which will be 2 years this August! I know we'll pick up where we left off (I hope so!) and I'm keeping my fingers crossed we get to meet up next weekend for a date night of sorts.

It was also nice seeing my Mum on Tuesday, I felt like I had a nice afternoon and evening with her. My sister is back this Saturday from university which is great. I'll be happy when she arrives safely back in Cornwall.

  1. Those are indeed reasons to be cheerful! By the way I love your instagram at the left margin. How did you do that?

  2. Some lovely positive reasons! It's great to reconnect with friends you've lost touch with isn't it? I've done a bit of that recently too. xx
