Reasons to be Cheerful

One thing that has been desperately missing, on my self imposed blog break, was my reasons to be cheerful. I know a lot of my loyal readership missed it.

I've decided to revive it, join back in with the linky that Lakes Single Mum has been keeping safe. I may simply change the way I write it.

Reasons to be Cheerful

I've spent some time, the last few weeks, re-thinking what makes me happy. However, one thing that has never changed: colourful hair! 

I've been purposely spending time, thinking of myself, I wrote the post Losing my inner roar, as a rallying call to myself. So today, Thursday, I went to my favourite hairdresser (Kahuna hair) and had my new colour. I also had the Olaplex treatment, a real treat. So not only has my hair been bleached quite a lot, then coloured, it still feels gorgeous!

It's the top thing that makes me smile, without fail:

Something that is coming up, a break! An actual break away form home. My mother has, practically, ordered us away for a weekend. She will come over and stay at my house with the boys, while I get to............sleep, A LOT.

So I have new hair, a break away coming, and next week I'm having some nails put on (mine are non-existent).

After the chaos of Easter, it's lovely pampering myself again. It's one of the only things I really spoil myself with. However, some new clothes might be in order soon. I haven't shared my weight loss success, because I didn't think it was noticeable..........apparently it is!?

I'm getting no end of comments (which doesn't offend me because I'm quite public about my struggle with it) about how much I've lost.

I'm now 25lb down, since Christmas. My clothes are getting loser, I'm getting back in to some of the old clothes I've kept. It's a nice feeling, but hard work.

Now if someone would just hide those bloody Easter eggs, I'd be eggstatic!!
