Reasons To Be Cheerful
1) I have a new favourite hat. It suits my teddy more than it suits me, but he can’t have it. I’m rather possessive over it you see.
I have to admit this last week has been on occasions, hellish. At other times it’s not been so bad. My operation went well and I’ve been healing at a good rate I think, so I’m very grateful for that. That’s my number 2 reason for being cheerful.
My comping hobby has done me proud over the last couple of weeks so that’s number 3 on my list. I love doing competitions because you really never know what the postman is going to turn up with. Nothing, absolutely nothing beats seeing the kids go completely mental when presented with a ton of chocolate.
On a less boastful level (well, you’ve got to get your highs where you can! I’ve not had much else to boast about recently) Sausage’s apple seeds have begun to sprout. He lovingly carried them around for ages and seemed to think they’d produce apples whilst still held in his little sweaty palms, Horace explained they needed planting first and this has been a little project of his since. Reason number 4, ‘New Growth!’ It reminds me that spring and sunnier, happier days are on the way.
All this Spring malarkey has made me feel so much more positive about the year ahead. When I’ve recovered properly I want to start trying to grow things again and actually do something with our garden – ie, make it look like a garden rather than a wilderness. That involves fighting with the forest of dandelions, planting some veg, maybe installing some outdoor lighting so it’s a little more welcoming on summer evenings. I just can’t wait to be back on form and to get on with things again.
That’s my number 5 reason to be cheerful. 2013 is going to be awesome. I’m going to be healthy, the kids will have a lovely garden to play in, the sun WILL shine (that’s the power of positive thinking) and there will be many, many more reasons to be cheerful from now on. So there! Take that you sore ass, you! In four to six weeks I’ll be all fixed and recovered. I can’t wait :O)
