Reasons to be Cheerful

I do love writing this weekly post. Some weeks, it’s hard to pick only three things to list; others, it’s hard to think of as many as free. I’m not sure which one this week is to be honest – I never know until I start writing!

Here are my reasons to be cheerful this week:

 

Fancy Dress Parties – I was contacted by George at Asda and asked if we would like to throw a fancy dress Summer party, if they sent us some fancy dress costumes and budget for food… so of course, we said yes! The party is this weekend, and we’re quite excited!

Old Friends – Yesterday S and I went for lunch with the friend we went to X Factor with last week. This time we met another friend as well, and it was lovely to catch up and meet their children. Plus, you know, Pizza Hut ice cream factory!

Motivation – I’ve signed up to a couple of programmes lately, and have been listening to podcasts and watching Periscopes rather than sitting in front of endless TV box sets. I’m feeling more motivated to succeed, both with this blog and my business… and with a gazillion other things!

What are you grateful for this week?

we love Reading Eggs

    This week I'm grateful for how smiley my little girl has become :) she's been smiling for around 5 weeks but she just grins all the time at everyone- next step giggling I hope! Your fancy dress party sounds like it's going to be fantastic fun, I can't wait to read the post on it when it comes around, enjoy yourself!

      I love Periscope. there is a lot of crap on there, but also some amazing videos where you can learn a lot.

      lol thanks Mich! The weather forecast for tomorrow is less than ideal, but I remain optimistic! Periscope is one of those things I dip in and out of, there are lots of people putting up great quality videos with free advice and tips. But it does make my phone ding with notifications almost constantly, and that's mildly irritating!

    I did see that you finally had your picnic! Was this fancy dress? I've been catching up with some friends recently too, it's been a real pleasure. Hope next week is as motivating x Ojo Henley recently posted...How am I Doing?My Profile

      It was indeed fancy dress; we only had a few children come along, but it was just right for a little afternoon picnic!
