Reasons to be Cheerful

Reasons to be Cheerful is being hosted at Seasider in the City this week.  Michelle is taking a well deserved break.  Although she is not hosting the linky she still wrote a kick-ass post! that I really enjoyed reading.... maybe I can relate to the fact that she loves her boy as I love mine, or maybe I just loved the soppy tone of it and how mutually appreciative their relationship is - I can only wish that Aaron grows up to be like JJ :-)

So, my reasons:
  1. As per one of my posts this week, I got a new dress for two weddings I am going to in August, and I'm really happy with it PLUS the handbag AND the new purse:-)
  2. We are having a lovely play-date with Siobhan tomorrow.
  3. The first of the August weddings is Saturday.
  4. We go to Ireland Tuesday :-) quality time with Aaron and my Mum.
  5. We'll get to go swimming lots in Ireland and Aaron will get great outdoors time/freedom.
  6. I am starting to get a bit more clarity in my life.
  7. I didn't lose weight for these weddings but am okay with it.
  8. My blog is consistently hitting 600 page views a day now - happy with reaching the target I set myself for fun (as I was made redundant 5th July it was fun when I got back from Ireland on 16th July, to set myself a target as a challenge).
  9. As per my What Makes me Smile post I have made up with my Sister in Law.
  10. With my Dad being back in my life (for nearly 2 years now) that just leaves my cousin Debbie to reach a reconciliation with, but she seems to be a toughie!!! No, that is NOT a reason to be cheerful.
  11. The weather is picking up - last Saturday Aaron's nursery had a fun day and I even got sun burned!
  12. The Olympics seems to be going well - apart from all the bits where it's not (like the empty seats etc...)
  13. I've done loads of housework and CAN see the wood for the trees now.
  14. I am going to the Brit Mums event on Monday.
  15. That reminds me I got a £39.99 early bird ticket for Brit Mums Live 2013... Go here if you want one as they are only available till 6th August.
  16. I think I'll draw a line here - that's enough reasons... :-) oh I will squeeze one in.  Thanks to the recommendation of the Mummy Whisperer (aka Lisa) I am reading Demartini's books and he has something called an Attitude of Gratitude that he recommends.  So I am VERY HAPPY to say that participating in Reasons to Be Cheerful is fully in keeping with my reading of his books, and the internal journey it is sending me on.
