Reasons to be Cheerful

I am loving November. I love the whole run up to Christmas. Getting presents, colder nights, building excitement. It's doubly so for me, as all of my sons birthdays are before the end of January! (I think I have a thing for spring!).

I am, therefore, finding reasons to be cheerful quite easy! Don't forget, for this month, Becky from Lakes Single Mum is hosting and doing an awesome job, as always.

Reasons to be Cheerful
1. Getting stuck in to a Home Made Christmas! I'm enjoying sewing, creating and making my house gradually more festive. Is it too early? No! Why does Christmas have to be one day?

2. Operation house. Gradually getting my house to look how I want it. Quite frankly, how I think I deserve. One of the things that has bothered me, are my grubby kitchen chairs. So, armed with a pot of £5 gloss, I got fixing that problem:



What a difference! Mr. Ojo added some extra lights, at the other end of my kitchen. The effect is spectacular, and a whole lot tidier.

3. Mornings with the Mr. He's been afternoons, which I normally hate, but this time I've enjoyed time alone with him in the mornings. It's important to remember who you are as a couple, not just 'mam and dad'. He makes me laugh like no one else, and he gives the best cuddles!

So that's my reasons to smile, this week. Now it's time to share yours. Whatever platform you choose, I'll listen!
