Reasons to be Cheerful

I am not going to lie to you folks, I am struggling. 

Between behavioural problems lately, the lack of routine in schools is a major problem this time of year. Also other problems, that I don't really want to talk about on here as too many people, that know me personally, read.

I am determined to keep think positively though, I have love in my life and a beautiful family. I have made it a mission lately to be happier, everyday. I am pushing away negativity as much as I can, and I know far too many people that make me feel bad! 

I am thinking of myself a little more, my hubby is catching on too. He has promised to get me out of the house for an hour a day, as he can see that I benefit from it. I have 6 weeks of school holidays coming, where I will find it very difficult to get out at all, so I am taking any time out I can!

I do have some other 
Reasons to be Cheerful
1. My son playing Cagey Joe, in the school production of Bugsy Malone. Wow, just wow! The whole production, cast, crew and teachers were absolutely amazing.
Cagey Joe in action!
2. My wedding anniversary. On the 4th, I celebrated 22 years of marriage to Mr. Ojo. 
I often get asked my secret...........No secret, just love each other.

3. Mr. Ojo turning 50 this weekend! I know, I know I don't look old enough to have a hubby that old! He's the love of my life and I truly wish I could have spent a LOT more money on his gifts, but a lot of thought went in instead, I know he'll appreciate that.
Absolutely love this man!

Hope as many of you join in this week! I didn't get around to reading last week, so I have some catching up to apologies.
