Reasons 2B Cheerful

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

I was feeling a little bit grumpy today. I think that I am getting annoyed with myself at the moment because I seem to be searching for something but I don't know what I am looking for. I am in a bit of a state of flux. I was having a bit of a moan about it on twitter today when Michelle from Mummy from the Heart reminded me of her fabulous link up. So here I am with my reasons to be cheerful this week.

                                                                                    1. Fate

We got a reasonable offer on the house today. It's only been on the market for 2 weeks! It's a bit of a miracle that the only viewer that we have had appears to be the right person for the house!

2. Holidays 

My hubby is now off for the summer until the schools go back (and me to work!) in August. We are going to my Dad's in the Czech Republic for a week on Sunday. When we get back, we will have a fortnight at home then we are off to Florida for 2 weeks. The Florida holiday has been planned for a long time (pre- JC). Hubby's parents own a timeshare and we are going with them, hubby's sister and cousin so there will be plenty of us to occupy JC on the flight!

3. Books

I am getting that fire in my belly to read again. Since I got my Kindle for my birthday I have read about 6 books. It's difficult to find the time and I really must try to go to bed earlier! I love lots of different genres but vampire and supernatural fiction is one of my favourites. A fellow blogger and vamp fiction lover over at SusanKMann has recommended some fab books to keep me going until my next Twilight instalment.

Right, I am feeling a bit better about things now. Thanks for the reminder Michelle!

  1. ooh jealous of your summer plans!

  2. It's costing us a fortune as you can imagine but it will be worth it. It
    will be the last big holiday before our house move and I reduce my hours to
    part time, after which we might not have the same expendable income. I am
    really excited about Florida, especially Busch Gardens and Seaworld.

  3. So glad R2BC has cheered you up

  4. Wonderful that you had an offer on your house so quickly. That is great news.

  5. Holidays are definitely a reason to be cheerful. And that is so fast for selling your house!

    I can empathise with that feeling you describe so well here.
    The house news is certainly reason to be cheerful in such difficult times property wise.  Holidays and time to reflect might help you find what you are looking for.
    One of the biggest challenges for me as a Mum is finding time to read so I get that one too

  7. Fabulous plans for the summer...enjoy! xxx

  8. It really does work at cheering you up doesn't it?  Wow, Florida so jealous.  Relax and enjoy....
