Reasons to be Cheerful


That is how I feel right now that I have no reasons to be cheerful.

I am aware that this is not really true as I have my 3 lovely children, food in my belly and a roof over my head.

I feel my husband is bored stiff with me.

I feel fat and that I always will be and you can throw in ugly and old too.

I get a sense other bloggers don't like me either or some of them anyway.

I feel I have no real positive future ahead just more of the same endless round of tidying and cleaning and always being the one people blame.

So back to the Reasons to be Cheerful.

1. The bin is out, the blue one that they only collect once a month.

2. I am helping people I think a little bit.

3. Sorry, can't think of a third right now.

I know this is a self-indulgent post but I think by writing it down, it might help a little bit.


  1. Oh, you need a big huggle! Bug hug coming your way. Watch out for it, it might knock you over.

  2. Ahhhh, bugger. Still there's always a silver lining. No? No. Ahhh go on cheer up. After all, lifes a piece of shit when you look at it. Life can make you smile and curse and swear but when you're chewing on lifes gristle don't grumble give a whistle and this'll help things turn out for the best. :)

  3. Mumsarcade real reasons to be cheerful from a stepdaughters point of view.

    1)Each day i was going through a difficult time of having my miscarrige you sent emails asking of how i was.

    2)you ALWAYS put others first, no matter the circumstances in your life.

    3)You offer words of comfert to those that need it and they generally come from the heart.

    4) You are a fantastic mom, stepmom, grandmother and wife even if you are not told it every day.

    5) You have acompliched (sp?) a lot in life, and have a lot more to do.

    Remember everyone has those down days and your there to make them smile, so when you are having a down day..i will be there to make YOU smile.

    Love you x

  4. I read you often and I definitely love your writing (ALL of it!) I so relate to so many of your posts. The funniest thing (to me anyway) was I saw the title of your post today on my sidebar and thought I really should do a list lie this because I feel I am always so mopey. And then I thought, I can't think of a damn thing to put on my list right now (and, yeah, I have two beautiful, healthy boys too, but that is the obvious stuff and these feelings are not about the obvious, IMHO!)

    Def. keep writing it out. I'm reading and feeling your pain! You are helping some of us out here. I get tired of all the sweet happy blogs anyway (these are supposed to be diaries of sorts; I really like to know I am not the only one feeling so blue).

    Many hugs, Sister!!!

  5. O, and this may hurt or help (hopefully the latter), but my husband told me last night he thinks I'm hairy. Yep. Talk about hurt. Now he has been back peddling all damn day (I say, 'Good luck with that, A**H, a bit late...') so I know how it feels to think of yourself as ugly.

    But you? You have a picture up here and you are lovely! Really beautiful!

  6. Big hugs! I hope you start to feel more cheery soon x

  7. Ohh bless you my lovely. I hope you are feeling more cheery by today. You stepdaughters comments has to have helped a little.

    All I ever see is a wonderful caring woman.

    with love, Mich xx

  8. I hope that things start going better for you. New follower from MBC, have a great weekend!

  9. Most of us will be able to feel where you are coming from, but you sound so down on yourself. I'm really hoping this mood for you will lift soon. I follow your blog all the time and really enjoy what you write.
    From what your stepdaughter said you really are lovely, so you need to start feeling it x

  10. I like you very much! You are receiving a virtual hug! I love the fact that you are real and honest in your blog! New follower from the FNF Weekend blog hop!

  11. You think too much. Get out and enjoy yourself. Out means less time to think about food and more time to get some fresh air. Self pity does not help - make the changes you would like to see , no matter how little and you will feel a lot better. Connecting to you via Google connect. Now does that not make you happy! You have a new self opinionated friend!

  12. Have just read you for the first time and feel so much for you. You must have feeling very alone to post that, so go you for being brave enough to put it out there. Have seen you've had a better week, so go you!

    Take care and thinking of you xxx
