Mama OWL Blog: #R2BC - Reasons to be cheerful

#R2BC - Reasons to be cheerful

Friday, 23 September 2011

This week's #R2BC is hosted by the lovely Mum Of All Trades and next week will be back where it began at Mummy From The Heart.

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

My reasons for being cheerful this week...

1. I am going to buy some new Autumn/Winter boots. My last pair - that I absolutely loved - unfortunately died a slow and painful death, however this does mean that in light of the new season that is upon us I can now justify buying some more! I wore flip-flops out in to the garden today to hang out some washing and nearly froze my toes off... Boots are an absolute must!

2. We are re-decorating the house. Well, pretty much every room except the boys room (just retouching the paint, grubby boy hands!) and the living room (happy with how it is). The hallway is looking fabulous, new paint job just done, wallpaper almost done and a new carpet going down when that is all finished. Maybe being excited by DIY projects is a sign of old age, but I don't care, it's going to look great when it's done.
Adam is doing a great job and completing it all while also working all the hours God sends and coaching our eldest son's football team, he's an absolute star.

3. There are less than 100 days until Christmas. I *love* Christmas and have already started making plans for dinner and desserts, and all of our arts/crafts/baking. I love this time of year, Autumn is here and preparations can begin for the festive season and for Harrison's birthday which is a month before Christmas, exciting times.


  1. Christmas is, indeed on its way and, yes, I agree with you it is a lovely family time. I am not in the mood yet but agree it is lovely when you get down to baking the cake and planning the food etc.

  2. I love how many posts on #r2bc this week are celebrating the seasons. I too want to buy some boots. I love boots far more than shoes. The decorating sounds like it is lifting your spirits too so all good. Best of all I like learning it is not only my boys who have grubby hands

  3. Great reasons, Boots are my absolute favourite item of footwear!
    Thanks for linking up, I've really enjoyed guest hosting R2BC and reading everyones posts.

  4. Maybe being excited about decorating is a middle-aged thing(!) but I'm with you on this. I find painting so therapeutic, and it's lovely to have a house that looks loved.

  5. What a beautiful looking blog you have. Thanks for joining in with #R2BC, great to have you on board.

    I know what you mean about decorating, my superb Dad has been up decorating for us today and then we have new carpet coming in a couple of weeks. Yippie!
