Reasons to be Cheerful



Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart
Hello everyone! *waves at the crowd and resists urge to stage dive*. I'm guest hosting Reasons to be Cheerful this week for the lovely Mich at Mummy from the Heart and very exciting it is too. This was the first linky I joined in with when I first started blogging and although I've had a few lapses *blushes* writing a positive post and linking it up still makes me smile. Right, let's get down to business then.


New to #R2BC? Let me hand over to Mich for a moment:
Reasons to be Cheerful 1, 2, 3 (or #R2BC as it is affectionately known) is a simple link your blog up which is open to everyone and particularly easy for a new blogger to join in... Go on, jump right in, we are all friendly here! 
See? It's all super easy and fun. All you need to do is write a post about the things that have made you cheerful this week and link it up below. Great to have you on board. Read some of the other posts if you have time and share the love.

So what are my reasons to be cheerful this week?
  • An important 1st - it was DD's first day at nursery on Wednesday. I was feeling like this while she was there but it actually all went swimmingly, she didn't have a meltdown and seemed to love every minute of the two hours she spent there. Hurrah!
  • Family fun - Nana and Tall Sis came down to stay overnight this week so we had lots of girly giggles and a great natter. 
  • A premiere - another first for DD, Sunday saw us troop off to the cinema for The Wiggles Big Party. Jeff + popcorn = eyes on stalks for 60 minutes. It was love at first sight. (And bite.)

Emma over at A Matter of Choice is hosting Reasons to be Cheerful next week, so please do stop by her place (which is in Cyprus by the way so don't forget to put on some sunscreen) and link up your positive vibes for us all to share.

Have a great week all!

  6. So glad you didn't stage dive. I wasn't looking and would've dropped you. 
    Glad your daughter had a good time at nursery. Can understand exactly what you were going through imagining her crying. Hope it gets easier - I'm sure it will.

    An important milestone, ongoing strong women having fun and a premiere (get you).  Sounds like fantastic reasons to me.

  13. Errrr... Didn't realise Jeff had left at any point (don't let DD hear you, she'll be distraught). All the same line up as far as I know. (Amazing what I'm an expert in these days...)

  19. So pleased to hear that she enjoyed nursery. D had a 'screaming tantrum' there on Wednesday as he didn't want to join in with everyone else, but he was fine by the time I picked him up and the rest of the week seems to have gone well. It's a big change for mother and child.

  20. Eek! I have a lot of respect for nursery school teachers - they cope SO well with the tears! You're right, it is a big change for us both - here's to it going ok for us both this week :D
