Reasons to be cheerful

I missed this little linky last week! but holidays took precedence. This is also the last week that its hosted by the Seasider in the city. So I'm glad I caught it this week.

My reasons this week.....

1. The Harlem Globetrotters!!! Yeah baby! Pure awesomeness on a court. I sound about 12 don't I? I really did have an amazing night, and am currently writing a full post on this, with pics. But it had to make it into this weeks reasons because it's the best night I've had in a long time :-)

2. Makeover time. We've had a rather imposing T.V. stand for quite some time, it was bought when my room was a little different. Now I have lighter furniture and walls, it just didn't 'fit'. This is my new look......
and I love it! The only thing in my room that's still quite dark is the rug you can see, but somehow that still fits.

3. Going Old school. As you may be able to see from the above photo, we have a space to keep our old vinyls. I do still love listening to them, there are memories that can be brought back by vinyl that digital can't reproduce. So as part of our little makeover we left space for a Record Player. A friend on FB told me where she'd seen one, so today we went for a look, and........
We've already tried 2 records! The best part is, it plays off the pc, so you can record your old vinyl onto a disc! All for £29. I really love that when the boys go back to school I can do my cleaning to a bit of Poison or Motley Crue! 

As usual this is a linky, so either join in at the bottom, or leave a comment to let me know whats making you cheerful this week xx
