Reasons To Be Cheerful


/ by
Blocked up nose, constant sneezing and barbed wire in my throat gives me a desperate need to look on the bright side. Feeling terrible can make things seem worse and I’m determined not to let that happen, especially this time of year. So here I am, joining in with #R2BC for the first time. I also think this may be my New Year phase kicking in early - I want to get on and actually DO stuff next year. No more waiting for things to happen!

  • Although I feel terrible I know (hope) that this cold/flu will be gone soon and I’ll be able to enjoy Christmas day with my boys without sneezing all over their toys!

  • I’m terribly excited about Christmas Day. I can’t wait to see the boys open their presents and help them get their new toys out. I already want to play with their new toys and have to keep restraining myself from giving them new things before the big day. I think I may be more excited than they are about Santa visiting!
  • Christmas is a time when we all take time off - time off work, time off school. I’ll leave the cleaning for another day and enjoy our family time together. With the boys growing up fast I intend to make the most of it.
Most of all I am glad that we are all generally healthy and happy.

This is the Christmas one!! This one runs out next week.........on Christmas Day!!


  1. Its lovely of you to join in! Isn't it a great feeling to look at the positives, I do hope it helps when you're feeling rubbish xx

  2. Christmas Day with the joy of kids is the best medicine!

  3. Welcome to #R2BC! Hope you're feeling better soon and able to really enjoy Christmas. I'm getting pretty excited about Christmas, but I don't think I can match the excitment of my children!

    1. Thanks Nicola! I am actually starting to feel a little better now, although I sound awful. It does seem odd to say I may be more excited than the kids but it's true. I just can't wait to see their faces on Christmas morning. The days seem endless at the moment.

  4. I hope you feel better soon! x

    1. Thank you Sarah. I do feel better now, not 100% but getting there. Thanks for stopping by x

  5. I hope you're feeling better soon! It's no fun, but on the plus side, seeing everyone's faces light up after Santa comes will make you feel better anyway I'm sure :D
