What are my reasons to smile this week?

Reasons to smile this week are wonderful.

reasons to smile

1. You find me in bed under my butterfly duvet and I am blogging.

2. Him Indoors is on late shift which means I get his company and help in the mornings. It also means I am in charge of the remote and other matters in the evening. By the time he gets in, I am very pleased to see him.

3. I made some quality time with my teenage son last night and also managed to contend with some sibling rivalry with aplomb.

4. We had a really interesting discussion about politics yesterday. It is good to find out what the children think and also what messages they are taking on board from the mainstream media.

5. I have come up with a really inventive idea for Him Indoors’ forthcoming birthday.

6. I have treated myself to some bargains via Ebay. Bits of jewellery and other non-essentials.

7. I feel on top of the housework and less daunted by it these days.

8. I also find I am feeling ready to let go of some of the items I kept following the death of my parents. I guess we move on in our own time.

9. The sunshine cheers the soul.

10. I published revealing picture of me on Facebook and it did not crash.


11. I feel more relaxed generally. There is no doubt I have given myself a very hard time over the years but that makes the good times now all the more joyous.

What are your reasons to smile?

    It’s been lovely seeing your posts on facebook, you seem so much happier with life in general. As for that bikini shot, you blow me away. I have never worn one in my life, I hope you inspire me to do the same, one day xx
