Reasons to be Cheerful 21.5.15

Just typing this will probably jinx it, but I'm glad to report that my children are pretty happy right now.

Smiley woke me at 5am this morning with her giggles, and all she wanted was company, until her home help arrived. So I obliged. It's no hardship chatting to your daughter (even if she is non-verbal), drinking coffee and watching a summer sunrise.


Angel is counting down the hours until she finishes her final college exam tomorrow. She can't wait to join the adult world, get a real job and start to make a difference to the lives of others.

I'm not supposed to tell you about my son, but let's just say that last week we took a big decision together and made an important change to his life. And it's looking good so far.

What else?

A brief visit by my brother kept all three happy, especially my son, who is so starved of male company in this household.

A relaxed meal out at one of the best local eateries.

An incident-free afternoon with the teenagers at a First Holy Communion Party. A bouncy castle was involved too.

An evening playing cards and watching Star Wars (again, I know).

Okay so this is the rose-tinted version of the past week. But it certainly makes me feel a lot more cheerful reading back over it.

    I try to remember all the good things that happen in a day, or a week. It helps lessen the :::down::: I may be feeling. BTW, I saved the link to the above pizza restaurant to my favorites. Will be in Ireland next year and am gathering all the recommendations I come across for food, entertainment, must-see places, etc.

  5. Rose tinted is exactly the point of this blog hop. When things seem a little crap, looking for one or 2 positives can really lift the spirit. That sunrise and cloud formation - bliss xx
