Reasons to be Cheerful

Weeks, like this week, are exactly why *Reasons* was originally started. Those tough weeks, when you really need to see the positives, to keep yourself going.

This week autism has reared its ugly side. As of writing this, I am yet to have an anxiety/meltdown free day. It's been exhausting keeping them, and their environment, calm. So reasons to smile are gratefully sought.


1. Mr. Ojo. Even though he is in pain, he has been a huge support. I am so thankful that we have such a good relationship, and that he is such a *hands on* dad. He's kept my spirits up and made me smile, sometimes that's all I need.

2. Avengers - Age of Ultron. We are all booked in to see it, Thursday evening! I'm so excited I could burst. Of course, being our local cinema, it's only £14 for all of us, how great is that?! One of the school mums (who I hope I can class as a friend) won tickets to the premier, in London, that was on Tuesday. I'm so pleased for her...................and a little jealous.

3. Project house. I didn't do anything last week to write about. This Friday, however, I get a new sofa delivered. I seriously can't wait! It's the first brand new (not second hand) sofa I've had, since before my eldest was born, 17+ years ago.

So that's me done. I feel better just writing this post, so I hope you'll join in too. Do share your happy thoughts, and posts, with me.

Much Love

  2. Our week's sound very similar, D has found something to get extremely anxious about every day this week and it's me who's been in pain, but my Hubbie has been wonderful.
    Hope the cinema trip went well and have a fab (calmer) weekend x
