My reasons to be happy


You're not from round here

My reasons to be happy

It's October! This means that Halloween is a little bit closer, as is Bonfire Night and the 'C' word (whispered as if I had said Voldermort). I'm already enjoying wintry foods with lots of slow cooker action, nights snuggled up with the Mr sipping hot chocolate and movies under the blanket - love it!!

Minxy got her first badge at Brownies and I'm so proud of her. She has since received some booklets to fill in towards her next one which I believe is Adventurer. I need to order the uniform now that I'm sure she wants to stick with it. I'm glad that she is making new friendships and having fun.


I seem to have had a sudden boost in motivation, determination and will power to succeed with my diet. I'm doing really well and I have set that 'C' word again as my first goal. My mum has decided to join in with the weight loss too so I feel better supported.


What reasons to you have to be cheerful this week?
