Reasons to be cheerful

Cough, cough, ouch! Yep, still got the chest infection and still got the cracked rib. Might even be pneumonia according to the doc. But I am determined to stay cheerful. Urm….

1. Mummy ‘n’ me baking. On Tuesday DD and I made gingerbread men and teddy bears together (you can see the results on Silent Sunday). OK, more chocolate buttons and mini marshmallows were eaten than ended up as buttons and eyes but hey, that’s all part of the fun! OH got a Daddy size one and MIL had a teddy bear. Everybody loves baking day (except my waistline *sigh*).

2. New windows. Gulp. Today some men will come into our house and bash it about with hammers. Fear not, it’s all planned maintenance as we’re finally changing our old knackered windows with shiny new ones. Goodbye shelling out the £££s on painting every couple of years and hello to just wiping with a cloth. Wheee! (Let’s not think about the mahoosive disruption to DD’s nap routine for a moment. Ok, so she won’t nap for a week probably unless I walk her up and down the village in the buggy but that’s the price you pay for shiny new glass. And besides, I’m supposed to be being cheerful here *slaps wrist*.)

3. Weekend me-time. I’ve got a manicure and a reflexology session booked for this weekend which means some lovely all-on-my-own snoozing me-time. Now following earlier in the week I just need to decide whether to say thank you…

P.S. I’m also uber excited to have some exciting guest posters on the way from Iceland, India and Malaysia for my global perspectives series . Woo hoo!

Do you have reasons to be cheerful this week? Pop ‘em down and link ‘em up over at this week’s decidedly upside down linky over at the lovely Mich’s place .
