Reasons To Be Cheerful - 13/09/12

13 September 2012

Hey everyone, it’s that time of the week again. Time to count our blessings and look at the good things in life.

R2BC is back with Michelle at Mummy From The Heart this week. Pop over to say hello and have a look at everyone else’s cheerfulness.

1 //  Oliver starts nursery school tomorrow. It’s his official start date even though it’s only for an hour and I stay with him. Then on Monday he goes for an hour on his own and Tuesday for the full 3 hours on his own. In my opinion it’s a bit prolonged but I have to remember that not all the children have been to playgroup like he has and some of them have only just turned 3 years old. I have no doubts that he’ll love it. My friend’s daughter is also going and a few children from his old playgroup so there’ll be a few familiar faces there. We’ve also been for several visits so he knows where everything is and what he likes to play with. I’ll let you know next week how he gets on.

2 //  I’ve got tomorrow and all next week off work. Primarily so I’m there to take Oliver to nursery and pick him up. I work four mornings a week so I won’t normally be the one doing the ‘school run’ but I wanted to make sure it was me that was there to see him settling in on his first week. With Oliver being at nursery, it means I’ll get to spend some time alone with Lydia. She’s only 21 months old and I’ve barely spent any time alone with her as Oliver’s always with us {which is how I like it!}. So we’ll be going to a few toddler groups and soft play, just the two of us.

3  //  We had a lovely day out at the seaside in Southport at the weekend. Unbeknown to us it was the Southport Air Show that day so we had the added bonus of being able to watch the amazing aerial displays. The Red Arrows opened the event and were truly awesome but the highlight for me was the fighter jet. It was the loudest thing I have ever heard in my life but it was incredible watching it flying practically into space then nose diving back to earth!


4 //  I’m having my hair cut and coloured this afternoon. If you’ve read my R2BC before you’ll know that I love going to the hairdressers! Two whole hours to myself, some lovely pampering and coming out with lovely looking hair.  Then this evening I’ll be showing my hair off at Bingo with my lovely friend from work. Keep your fingers crossed that we win this time!

So what have you got to smile about this week? If you want to see what other people are cheerful about, pop on over to to read their stories or follow the links below!
