Reasons to be Cheerful


Hello hello! How is your week going? I’ve been attending Salisbury Big Business Event┬áthis week, which has been lots of fun but exhausting. I’m looking forward to a wuiet

Here are my reasons to be cheerful this week:

Lovely friends – I started this week feeling decidedly crappy. I’ve had a hard couple of weeks for no concrete reason. A couple of friends, without really doing anything out of the ordinary, have helped me through – probably without even realising it.

Salisbury Big Business Event – Last year I missed most of it, but I’ve managed to catch most of this year’s, and I’ve loved it. I spent most of yesterday helping out on a friend’s business stand; she only needed me for a couple of hours but I stayed on because I was having such a great time!

Auntie Af – Since yesterday was Wednesday, and S had the day off nursery, I wouldn’t have been able to go to the Big Business Event if my sister hadn’t stepped in to care for S. I love that S sees her time spent with Auntie Af as a massive treat, rather than being babysat while Mummy goes out to do other things.

    Thanks Sarah. I love writing them because it forces me to find something positive even when I’m feeling a bit pants!

I love that ‘reasons’ picture. The minute I click on your page, I smile.
I also love that friends and family are your reasons, that is such a great thing to smile about x

    Ah thanks! I love that photo too; it’s one of the first ones I took with my new camera, while I was still figuring out how to work it (well, I still am but… ya know).
