Reasons to be cheerful

I've been looking forward to this one this week, lots of things have been making smile.
1. I am now the proud owner of my own domain name! ojosworld now has a .com and co.uk. I have been unsure about this for quite some time, but 2 nights ago I bit the bullet. My hubby pushed me toward it, and I'm glad I've done it! I mean I gave up smoking last year and I hardly go out. I now feel like I've rewarded myself.

2. A nearly new laptop. Its really my sons from a few years ago, but since Xmas and the arrival of his new Galaxy Tab, he hardly touches it. It hasn't really been working well for me. I could only get on blogger if I used google chrome, and it wouldn't allow me on Twitter at all!! That is simply unforgivable! So today my hubby took it to a local PC repair shop..........and its fixed! yay! Now where do I hide it so little boys fingers can't get near...........maybe I should cover it in flowers.

3. The snow. Now I am not a big fan of the snow, at least being out in it. As I explained yesterday I am useless walking in it, although, I honestly don't mind the cold. I'm always so hot (ahem!), its quite refreshing for me. The reason I love this snow is because the schools have been shut, meaning my boys are home with me. The buses are being called of the road, which means my hubby is home early, and more importantly, safe. Its meant my boys have had fun in the snow, then come in and spent time as a family.

 The only downside has been little A not liking it at all. It changes the way everything looks, and for an autistic child that is very visual, thats quite hard to deal with. However, the amount we have had in Wales, even he has looked out of the window in awe.

I hope you're are all having a wonderful week, and have fun on the weekend to come!
Oh and check me out doing my own signature!!

  4. Congratulations on the domain name and the "new" laptop. I think the flower idea is a good one. I'm happy your boys are home from school. The only bad thing about snow is concern for everyone when they have to be out in it. niftyafterfifty xx

  10. cpngratulations on the domain name (our 6 yr old has his own domain name and our own blog does not!). so glad you got the laptop fixed too - it can be so annoying when you can't get to do the things you need to online. I totally understand what you mean about the snow - J used to get really disorientated when it is actually snowing. (he still does a bit and tends to get a bit over excited about snow). enjoy the weekend x
