My Life with S

Reasons to be Cheerful 2015-01-15

Reasons to be Cheerful


Happy Thursday! Have you had snow? We had a little yesterday – a 10-minute flurry with worrying large flakes, but it stopped as suddenly as it started, and left nothing behind. Ten minutes was plenty long enough for S to get super excited though, and she returned to the window at regular intervals throughout the day.

Here are my Reasons to be Cheerful this week:

Feeling Better

After being ill for almost an entire month, I woke up on Monday feeling human. I no longer wheeze when I breathe, and even managed to run up the stairs when I forgot S’s nursery bag. It’s fantastic to be able to actually walk more than five paces without needing to cough til I fall over!

Work Inspiration

I had a great meeting yesterday with a lady from Wiltshire Business Support. I didn’t even know the service existed until recently, and I’m so glad I found out about them! The lady was  really lovely and gave me loads of advice and tips for how to improve my business. If you’re self employed, or thinking about heading in that direction, definitely check out whether your local council has anything like this!

Going on Telly

Yesterday we had a visit from Russia Today; three lovely ladies came from London to chat about rising energy prices and the cost of heating a home. We had a lovely chat, and S made friends with them too which is always fun. I think she enjoyed having new people to show off her toys to! Also, possibly the weirdest part of the day was that one of the ladies who came to do the interview went to my old school. Ex South Wilts girls are everywhere!

This is S, watching the snow yesterday. The first time she'd seen snow!
