Reasons to be happy

You're not from round here

My reasons to be happy

I've been a bit of a grumpy, hormonal moo bag the past week and feeling a bit down about pretty much everything so I've been looking forward to writing this one! It's given me a chance to focus on the good bits....

Family - Their love and devotion, hugs and smiles keep me plodding on. I may moan at times to them about keeping rooms tidy, emptying school bags and bickering but without them I would be nothing and I love them dearly.

Christmas -  The tree is up, the lights are twinkling and I've purchased the majority of everyone's gifts this week. Usually I'm done by the end of November but I left it a little later this year. I don't feel that Christmasy this time round, possibly due to the Mini Mes being older and wiser, but my spirit is returning!

Weight loss - It's coming off and staying off and I've been offered an extension on my Jenny Craig plan as I've been doing well which is a bonus. Hopefully I will have lost 2 stone by April, my 28th birthday eek.

What reasons to you have to be cheerful this week?

  1. Family can get you through so many things without even realising it. I know mine have! Twinkly christmas lights always make me smile, I love them. Well done on your Jenny Craig plan, I'm sure you will reach your goal and look fabulous for your birthday! Thanks for linking up xx

  2. You've gotta love family :) Even when you don't like them lol. Yay for Christmas! We're VERY excited in this house too :)

  3. I'm so sorry you've been feeling down but wow, well done with your weight loss. I've been battling with my weight for years now so it's lovely reading success stories. Well done for getting the tree up and decorated. I do feel whenever i'm down if I look at our gorgeous twinkly tree it just makes me smile so hopefully that will make you happy. Thanks for sharing x

  8. I know what you mean about losing the spirit as the kids get older....I'm desperately trying to hide all mine but I'm pretty sure that Tween 2 found her mobile phone today :( They obviously don't believe anymore which is sad...just holding out for The Boy who does! Great news on the weight loss!
