Reasons to be Cheerful

No, don’t change the channel, you’re not hallucinating, it’s me and not Mich here, guest hosting again for the most cheerful linky on the interwebicle. Huge thanks to Mich for letting me loose with her ‘baby’ for a second time and to the other guest hosts – , Kate on Thin Ice, Seasider in the City and – for keeping us on the cheerful straight and narrow. 

New to #R2BC? Let me hand over to Mich for a moment:
Reasons to be Cheerful 1, 2, 3 (or #R2BC as it is affectionately known) is a simple link your blog up which is open to everyone and particularly easy for a new blogger to join in… Go on, jump right in, we are all friendly here! See? It’s all super easy and fun. All you need to do is write a post about the things that have made you cheerful this week and link it up below. Great to have you on board. Read some of the other posts if you have time and share the love.

So without further ado what are my reasons to be cheerful this week?

Christmas Crafting – I love crafting, and Christmas is one of the best seasonal excuses for going craft loopy. This week I’ve made a snowman and a big Christmas tree out of craft paper and stuck them up in DD’s play room. Over the next few weeks we’re going to make baubles together out of card and paper, print off family portraits to decorate them and stick them up all over the tree.

Parenting perspectives - I’ve been running this series of guest posts from parent bloggers around the world for over two months now and I can’t believe that so many lovely bloggers have given up their time to jot down their views on parenting for this little ‘ol blog. It makes me most cheerful indeed.

New kitchen  - It’s almost here! Work starts on our kitchen refresh next week and I’m so terrified at not having a kitchen for almost 2 weeks excited about it. Operation ‘create a make-shift kitchen somewhere else in the house’ starts today. Any tips people?

Right, over to you! Have you got reasons to be cheerful this week? Link ‘em up below and get that lovely #R2BC glow!

P.S. Becky over at is hosting Reasons to be Cheerful next week, so please do stop by her place and link up your positive vibes for us all to share. Have a great week all!

    Well done on hosting the wonderful #r2bc.  You have lovely reasons.  I admire you for your crafting as I am hopeless on that front.  I also like your reason about engagement from other bloggers.  I too have that via my #groovingmums thing and think it is so generous-spirited of folks to get involved.  Will link up my reasons later

    Good reasons! I remember when my parents got their kitchen re-done when I was 18. They went off on holiday and left my sister and I with a camping stove, microwave and some very generous next door neighbours. Maybe that’s the trick?!

    Ohh you lucky lady having your kitchen done.  Mine needs doing so badly!

    As long as you are all sorted again for Christmas hey?

    Thanks for your kind word Kate! And you’re right it’s fab when people engage. Loved your reasons too by the way :D

  • bod for tea

    Yes I think that’s what we’re going to do. The camping stove and microwave, not leaving DD on her own of course..

    I know! *new kitchen face* It’s just a refresh, new doors and floor etc but can’t wait :D *ignores that it might not be done by Christmas and fact we have 10 people for Xmas day*
