What are this week’s reasons to be cheerful?

When did I last celebrate all the good stuff?   It is high time I got back to telling my happy stuff once a week.

So what are reasons to smile this week?

1. I have just had a haircut, it is very short and snazzy.  I intend to colour it after the hairdresser referred to my grey hair.  I shot her a look and she said “Well, let’s call it glitter”.  Yes let’s but perhaps more drastic action is required.  I am thinking purple.

2. More than a month has passed since Dad died and I feel like I am turning that corner where life becomes bearable again.

3. I published some of my boudoir photographs yesterday https://kateonthinice.wordpress.com/2012/10/24/should-you-have-some-boudoir-photography-done/ and not one person left a nasty comment about me being fat, ugly or whatever.

4. I decided to dig deep and actually say out loud what I think about the Jimmy Saville controversy here https://kateonthinice.wordpress.com/2012/10/23/its-time-we-fixed-it-my-reflections-on-the-jimmy-saville-controversy/

5. I am going to Butlins as an ambassador next week.  My family so needs this holiday after the insanity of the last 4 months.  My husband used to be a Redcoat in his youth so we hope to see him transform into My Fun Guy when we get there.  Or possibly Glamarous Grandad.

6. Only another day of school runs.  I don’t know what it is but I rarely enjoy these, something about having to be in the same place at the same time day in and day out annoys me.

7. I start a new role next week and I am very excited about it.

8. Finally, I have some rather lovely new blog followers some of whom are clearly kindred spirits and that warms my soul.


Now pop over to Mich at http://mdplife.blogspot.com amd check out some other chirpy folks.

  1. So sad to hear about your Dad Kate. I didn’t realise this as I’ve not been online very much since the school holidays. I hope your trip to Butlins brings a smile to everyone’s face and lots of reasons to feel cheerful. I was also a Redcoat back in the day so embrace my inner “Red” every now and again!! Where was your hubby a Red at and when? xx
