My reasons to be cheerful this week!! #R2BC


I have been suffering with headaches again a lot recently. I am so, so hoping I won't need another lumbar puncture. Right now it has eased off a little because I've taken some strong pain killers. Needless to say I have been feeling rather miserable this week. I'm scheduling this post in case my headache is bad again tomorrow. It's hard to concentrate on a blog post when I have a bad headache! The reasons to be cheerful blog hop is the perfect opportunity for me to remind myself of the positives and indeed, remind myself of the reasons to be happy! So here goes:

  1. Kids - I am so grateful that I have good kids. I've had a headache a lot lately and they are quite understanding, they can be very helpful and considerate at times. They amuse themselves quite happily and will sit quietly with me watching films/DVDs. Don't get me wrong, they certainly have there moments (don't most kids?) but overall they are pretty good, especially when I don't feel my best. They are my whole entire world <3 li="" nbsp="">
  2. A new arrival - I'm gonna be an auntie again (3rd time). My brothers girlfriend is pregnant! She's around 16 weeks, could be a little more. I am so excited! They've promised me I can go shopping for baby things with them. I love shopping for baby things, so I am really excited about, that! Ha, it's the little things in life that keep me happy (shopping for baby things). 
  3. Friends - I'm really lucky to have some amazing online friends who are there to offer me support, advice and just be there for me. I don't have many (what I can call real) friends in real life. It's nice to know that there's always someone there for me, I can either email or message on Facebook. Honestly, I don't know where I would be without those people. I also have a best friend in real life who is always there for me too. So yes, having a lovely group of friends online/offline is certainly a reason to be cheerful. 
  4. Family - I also have an amazing fella. Even though he lives 300 odd miles away, he is always there for me. I am very lucky. I was also lucky enough to see my mum, brother etc.this week. It was nice to see them. My mum is a little stressed lately, I really hope things calm down for her soon.
  5. Charlie won a book, a book token and a certificate for dressing up in a creative way for world book day! I am so very proud of him. :)
