Well, here I am again – cheerful as ever (or maybe not). I have to admit this has been quite a testing week – nothing major just the trials of bringing up 3 girls and thinking about starting work again.
If ever I needed a Reasons to be cheerful list compiling it is this week. So here we go:
Reason to be Cheerful 1: New Blog
Eagle eyed visitors may have noticed my swanky new blog. My lovely friend, Cara at Freckles Family so ‘got’ what I was after when I was trying to change the blog. I have merged my family and cake blogs into one and feel so much better about what I am doing.
Reason to be Cheerful 2: I have learnt to knit
Well, nearly. This is part of my list of things to achieve before I am 40 – learn to knit/crochet and sew. Again, Cara has come to my rescue and taught me how to cast on and knit and purl. The picture shown was the extent of my knitting collection before Cara kindly gave me some wool and needles (yes, I really did only have 1 needle – perhaps that was what was holding me back?). I’ve not had much change to practice but intend on taking my needles to the van this weekend. Who knows, one day I may knit you something!
Reason to be Cheerful 3: Birthdays
There are loads of birthdays coming up in the next couple of weeks (including my little V turning 5). I have 3 friends who all have a daughter that celebrates her birthday on the 25th May and the amount of party invitations on the notice board suggests that there are going to be quite a few celebrations held. Just makes you feel happy!
And thats it for this week, visit Michelle’s blog to see what is making the rest of the gang chirpy. Or even better, join in and tell us what’s cheering you this week. Here’s to a better week next week!
