Reasons to be cheerful..

It’s only the tenth day of January and quite a few people I know (and know through twitter and the various blogs I read) have already had quite a bit of crap to deal with in 2011. So after reading this post I thought I should join in and declare my 3 reasons to be cheerful today.

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy with a Heart

1. I’m on Day 5 of the new ProPoints WeightWatchers diet and I’m feeling really good about it. I’m on track, I’ve written EVERYTHING down that has passed my lips and i’ve resisted temptation at work by saying “No” to the remaining boxes of Christmas chocolates that are going round. I’ve also drank plenty of water and am determined that this year is going to be MY year.

2. I have the most talented husband. He is an incredible teacher and has become a fantastic leader of a very big department in a large secondary school. He’s come a long way in the 8 years that we have been together from finishing his degree at university to starting in an inner city Birmingham school to working his way up through the ranks at the largest secondary school in the country. I’m very proud of him and his achievements. Oh and the incentive he may have received today at work….

3. I have a sewing machine and I’m really enjoying the challenge of learning to sew different things. Especially putting together my first ‘proper’ quilt using everyone’s support and advice on twitter. The advice I receive on their is invaluable so thank you ladies I am very grateful
