Reasons to be cheerful 16th August 2013

It's been a few weeks since I've done a Reasons to be Cheerful post, but as I watch the rain falling outside my office window and look at news reports of unrest, protests, bullying and economic doom and gloom I figure that today is probably a pretty good day to recognise happiness.
My Reasons to be Cheerful...
Looking at my birthday cards on the sideboard every morning reminds me of how many lovely people are in my life
We had good news yesterday about a relative who is currently in hospital - get well soon!
Tomorrow is the first day off we are sharing for 4 weeks, I think a nice lazy breakfast will be in order!
Tomorrow is also The OH nephew's 6th birthday. The Rocket birthday cake is all made and we are going to see him in the evening to open some presents.
I ordered some bikinis and summer clothes from the Secret Sales website weeks ago and I got the email this morning to say they have been dispatched...only 12 weeks until we fly to Cuba!
I got some lovely comments about my first few creative writing posts. This is the first time I've explored this area since Senior School (20 years ago!) and it's definitely something I want to develop.
After our food shop tonight our fridge and cupboards will be full once more, we literally have one packet of chicken and 2 ice lollies in the freezer...and that's it!
Next weekend we have 2 days off together...yaaa hooo...and we have got exciting times planned, Saturday the OH is going gliding and on Sunday we have a Champagne Spa Day booked for my birthday treat...there will definitely be a few posts coming up after then.
At the end of the month we are driving to Holland for a long weekend. The OH lived there for 9 years and I can't wait for him to show me around and introduce his friends to me.
And finally, as always, thankfully my friends and family are all happy and healthy (or getting there!)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
