It is always lovely to get to Friday with another weeked enjoyed and survived and then to remember that it is time to record Reasons to be Cheerful as part of the wonderful initiative and blog hop from Mummy from the Heart.
Here are my reasons ...
1. Although I lost my Mum in September 2009, I still have my Dad and he know lives with me. He is fabulous in so many ways and it is great to have his company and feel less isolated. His conversation is interesting, his humour is infectious and he takes me out and about too. Please scroll down to the next blog post where I tell you all about my Dad's continuing learning as he gets to grips with computers.
2. We are having a little boy to stay with us this weekend. He is my husband's grandson and a great friend to my three children (his Aunty and Uncles lol!). I am also cheerful that I am not yet a Grandma despite what my darling step-daughter would have you believe! We are going to have fun this weekend pottering about, letting the children rampage and going on a VIP trip to Hollywood Bowl. Meanwhile, my step-daughter can have a little post-Valentine's fun with a child-free zone. I have sent her some little gifts to help her along with that.
3. Finally, I am really enjoying my new-found love of cats. We got one and then another two. We are not the sort of people to do things by halves. So now we have a ragdoll, a ginger and a moggy. All very beautiful and sweet. I was worried about the Ragdoll as she was very shy on being rehomed here but my Dad took her into his space and now she is very well settled in.
Although I am exhausted (must get to the GP at some point about that), there are loads of reasons to be cheerful this week including plenty of sleep-ins next week with Half Term imminent.
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend and Half Term.
