This is my first go at this so bear with me until I get it sorted. Doing blog hops has not been my speciality yet, and the only one I have tried, ended up with me just messing it up. Here is hoping that I manage to get it right this time.
Okay – my reasons to be cheerful.
1 – I have a fantastic mother who does so much to help me, that I cannot even begin to describe how much she means to me as a mother. She struggles with diabetes, thyroid disease, arthritis and has just passed her 5 year mark for breast cancer. And yet, she still always thinks of me and my children first, and never complains. I landed an angel.
2 – My relatively new circle of friends (1 year plus), has brought me back into a fantastic life, that revolves outside of my own little home bubble. They took me in, made me one of them, and now I would be lost without them.
3 – I found twitter and blogging. While I am not Mrs Wonderful Blogger, I am loving it. I have the opportunity to interact with other women like me. I can meet and talk to people as and when I need support, a talking to, or just a bit of gossip or banter.
4 – Like some of the other bloggy mums, I have recently been contacted by some PR’s wanting to work with me, which is fantastic. This is an amazing boost to confidence considering I had to start from scratch when I lost a few months of posts in October. I have only been going again since November under my new name, and I am happy with how things are going. This is fun for me, and I am thoroughly enjoying it.
5 – This is a holiday weekend, and I don’t have to rush getting the kids up for the next 5 mornings.
