Reasons to be Cheerful

For more information on what Reasons to Be Cheerful (#R2BC) is all about please check out this post from Michelle at Mummy from the Heart for a full description.

This week's Reasons to be Cheerful: 
  1. My exam (and therefore my course) is over! I'm glad to see the back of it. I really struggled with it as there was a lot of information to take in and remember, not good when Anti D's and mental health problems mess with my motivation, concentration, and memory! 
  2. My new course started last Saturday, I'm yet to start properly as I need to just let my head stop feeling like it is going to explode, but it's creative writing, so something I enjoy.
  3. After the really stressful day on Tuesday my exam (I'm confident with one question! :-0 but its worth 30%), Little Lady gave me a proud mummy moment and walked all the way across the room. She has been standing and taking 2 or 3 steps for a few weeks so it has been coming for a while, but it was like she new I needed it! Aren't kiddos amazing?
  4. I had a break from the revision to link up with Wendy at Handmade Harbour for her Midweek Papercraft Party, I did a very basic Halloween card / invite, but it was a great distraction from the stress. I'm hoping to join up with this week's theme of Men and boys
  5. Speaking of Halloween, have you seen the Alex and Alexa Blogger competition? I have blogged details here
  6. Because of my exam and revision, Daddy had booked a week off. I like to say we had some lovely family time, but we didn't really, I was too busy. Little Lady has enjoyed spending lots of time with him though. Hopefully, we will do something as a family, or even just as a couple, soon.
  7. I am planning a few Christmas posts at the moment, mainly crafty and gift inspired.
  8. I put on a LOT of weight this week. I know that isn't a reason to be cheerful and I certainly wasn't. I expected a bit of a gain due to Daddy cooking and me snacking on sandwiches etc. due to lack of time. But it did mean I had a bottle of Rioja and some chocolate! lol Onwards and upwards, I'm back to eating normally again.
So over to you, what are your reasons to be cheerful?


  1. Wow, you sound really busy, although I am glad there was a sweet memory created for you by your little girl, too cute. I think you left a comment on my blog BUT I picked it up on my iPad and I accidentally deleted it, sorry. :(

    1. Thank you. Kiki amazes me every day.
      I understand the blog thing, I often try to do stuff on my phone, and it usually doesn't work.

  2. You are so busy at the moment! I really hope your exam results are good, and that you can chill out for a bit xx

    1. Thanks Jo. I won't get my exam results until end of Nov / beginning of Dec, so quite a while to wait :-(
