Reasons to be Cheerful - Part 4

Here is my week 4 post for Reasons to be Cheerful as hosted by the lovely Mich at Mummy from the Heart:

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy From the Heart
A biiiit of a stretch for me after my GRUMP post yesterday but am deffo feeling a mite chirpier so heregoes:

1. We move in 6 days (gulp) but envisaging my furniture, lovely new sofa cushions and GG and BB running around in the new house is keeping me going!

2. I had a wonderful lunch with a friend today which stretched into more of a day (albeit with 3 children in tow between us). It entailed a lovely combination of baby talk (she is wonderfully pregnant), food (scampi, chips and mushy peas followed by a taster dessert of eton mess, lemon tart and profiteroles - who could ever not be cheerful about eating out?) plus the planning of a trip to London and talking about everything else under the sun.  I haven't done any housework (my bed is still unmade - oops better do that at least before Husband comes home) or packing!  Plus I think Husband and I are having a take away tonight - RESULT.

3. I heard Adele on the Radio1 Live Lounge yesterday and last night downloaded her new album 21.  If you have not yet got this album please get it - it is amazing.  The track 'Do you Remember' made me cry at breakfast time this morning - it's a masterpiece.  I love getting new music.


  1. Glad to hear you're feeling a lot more happier than the other day. We all need to vent from time to time and it's only natural with the added pressure of a house move.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. One of my reasons was going out for lunch too :) There's nothing like dinner someone else has cooked to cheer you up!!


  3. Hey hun, it was great to see over at: glad to make your aquaintance ;-) I think I need to start making a weekly happy list (tried it once never stuck to it) for I often find myself generally moaning and groaning about this that and the other. Well done on feeling cheerful through the tornado of grumpiness and anxiety. Take care xx
