Reasons to be cheerful - January


Hmmm, reasons to be cheerful?

Well, today has been eventful, although no great shakes. Mind you, digging below the surface I can think of a few things that have made me smile today.

Nick loves going on outings, especially to the shops. In fact we have some really fab moments together when wandering around the grocery store! Today, the cheeky boy nipped off pretty smartly while I was still in the process of grabbing my bags from the car. I had a quick panic attack and made to run after him..... however, I thought to myself.... stop, give the kid a break, he is 15 after all. I slowed down and hung back a bit. To my delight, he stopped and looked around... and kept looking until he found me! Yes!

Late morning, I left Nick at home with a carer and took my first born for his yearly eye test (and mine too!). Am a bit saddened that my eyesight has deteriorated, however, I was informed that my age was the contributing factor! Sigh. On the plus side, we both have very cool new glasses that should be ready in a week. I have had to go the multi focal option. Bit nervous about that. Anyways, will remain cheerful!

Last but not least. I woke up this morning thinking about supper.... as in, the monotony of cooking. Groan. Suggested to the husband that we go out for an early supper. He was keen. Woohoo. Lovely healthy fish and salad with a glass of wine. No dishes. Win win.

This must be the quickest blog post I have ever written. I haven't even checked for errors! Thank you to the lovely ladies who continue to host 'Reasons to be Cheerful. Apologies for not adding your poster or linky. I am working off my iPad, which makes adding all the little extras quite difficult.

Here is today's #project365 instead. It took an age to load.

  1. Quick posts are awesome, they usually come straight from the heart! I panic if I lose sight of my boys, they're not quite your boys age yet, but oh, that heart stopping moment. Well done you on waiting it out xx

    1. It is quite hard letting Nick move away from me, that's for sure! :-)

  2. We had a curry delivery here tonight, which made cleaning up the kitchen a lot easier! Great news about Nick at the grocery store too -- I remember when I had a "bolter", you would be living off your nerves whenever you went anywhere!

  3. Must be hard to let him have a little freedom. I have varifocals and they are fabulous!

    1. That's great to hear about your varifocals. I am hoping that it doesn't take to long to get used to mine, I was told that it could take up to two weeks!
