Reasons to be Cheerful

Hello there, my cheerful Thursday bunch! I hope you are all well? I was a bit late, reading and commenting on last weeks, but I did get it done.........eventually.

This week will be very much the same, as I have a million things on...

Which leads nicely into:

Ojos World

1. A day out. If little A goes on a school trip, I go along. He, realistically, could cause health and safety issues for the teachers, as he tends to wander. I really don't mind though, especially as tomorrows trip will mostly be about pirates!



2. A successful shopping trip. Only a fellow Autism parent could understand the woes that come with a day out. Taking my 2 youngest (both on the spectrum) can be a real challenge. Last Saturday I took them both into town, for a walk.......ish, A was in his pushchair, hiding under a blanket! There wasn't a single meltdown, from me or them. Plus we had a lovely lunch in the tweens favourite coffee shop.


3. Beautiful fellow bloggers, and friends. This week I shared my comparison pictures, from the starting point of Thinking slimmer, and now. The response I had was unbelievable. Everyone really understood how hard that post was for me to write, and were so supportive of the results, thank you. 

So that's me, how about you? Don't forget to link up if you're a blogger, but don't worry if you aren't, I still want to hear what's made you smile this week!

Much Love

  1. That's two trips out and I get how important they become when you spend too much time at home. Both sound like fun as well.

    Well done on the Thinking Slimmer photos - as well as the difference in your shape, you look so much happier and more confident now, which is really great, long may that continue xx

  6. As an autistic adult, I totaly understand the challenges of taking an autistic kid on a shopping tour. I am so glad none of you had a meltdown. I will go check out your Thinkign Slimmer post too. It is hard to look at your weight loss journey, I know.

  8. Just added my link but the HTML code for the badge doesn't seem to work for me, not sure what the problem is. I'll add it later if I can find out what's wrong.
