Reasons to be cheerful ~ February


I am thinking about today and reflecting on my reasons to be cheerful..........

In fact, today is full of wonderful reasons. Except for the 4:30am wake up. Thanks, Nick!!

I met some lovely friends for coffee early this morning.

Nick's wonderful school facilitator did some overtime which gave me an extra couple of hours of *me time*.

I went out for lunch with some more lovely friends. We chatted about our boys who are now first year university students. We decided that we are not pining away for our kids and we accept that this is a new chapter in their lives as well as ours. If they are happy, we are happy.

I had a bit of spare time after lunch before I needed to go home. So.... I headed for the beach to dip my toes in the sea. I misjudged a wave and got soaked. Went home with a wet dress and sandy feet. Bliss.

It's my husband's 50th Birthday and we are going out for supper. There will be Champagne.

Onward and upward.

  5. Great post...and meaningful for me as my oldest son will be finishing school this summer and may well be flying the nest. I don't feel close to ready for it yet. It's good to see it can be survived with style tho XXX

    1. Hi Jean. It is quite a thing when they finish school. Surprisingly, I am coping well without the first born around. Mind you I seem to be sending him loads of whatsapp messages. Thankfully he writes back! :)

  6. Lovely reasons. I'm glad you're not pining for your son, although I know 'Me time' is hard for you to come by, I'm glad you found some with like minded friends xx
