The lovely Michelle from Mummy From The Heart has started a new blog hop called Reasons to be Cheerful 1, 2, 3. You can read about it on her blog here.
So what 3 reasons have I got to be cheerful about today? I certainly don't feel that cheerful, my hormones are raging (ain't that mother nature a b***h every month) but I can be thankful for some small things.
1. It's Friday
I love Fridays for a number of reasons. Being a SAHM I thought I'd never really be as happy for it to be Friday as I was when I was working full-time, but I am. Friday is the day my husband (usually) winds down from his busy working week and I know that we have 2 days to look forward to where we aren't interrupted by business emails or phone calls. He works from home and it can be quite annoying. Friday is also the day my Mum & Dad have my daughter in the morning. I miss her so much but it makes my parents so happy and also gives me some proper 'me' time - usually spent cleaning though :(
2. It's snowing - a lot
After the bad weather in December I should dislike it but I've always loved the snow. Even when I had to do a long commute to get to work I would never hate it. Sure, it causes problems on the road etc. but it's just so beautiful. It will never fail to cheer me up.
Those who know me know I love travel. Sadly our days of traveling Route 66 across the USA in a cabriolet or seeing the Northern Lights in the Arctic Circle are over (for now anyway) but we still like to get away from home when we can. I'm not sure we will get to have a proper holiday this year but for now I get to choose a two night break thanks to my Mum & Dad. It's a Christmas present from them. They got us one last year and we spent a couple of lovely nights in the Cotswolds. Today we are going to decide where we are off to this year.
So, what are your 3 reasons to be cheerful?
