#R2BC - Reasons to be Cheerful... 1, 2, 3

Friday, 21 September 2012

To give you an indication of how manic my week has been... I am a DAY LATE joining in with #R2BC. Those of you who are here every week will know that this never happens. This week, however, it did. Crazy busy. I am exhausted. But, everything is good in the land of me, absolutely no complaints.

Well, apart from one... Thank you so much to everyone who wished my mum well last week, however her surgery was cancelled at literally the last minute. She was packing her bag ready for an early start in the morning and they cancelled it because they found something on her test results that they need investigating before they can continue. She is of course devastated because she is in a lot of pain 24/7. Fingers crossed that they will get this fixed for her soon.

Back to more cheerful and positive things...

1. L was invited to a birthday party! Now I know lots of you take your children to loads of parties. Some even two or three on one weekend, and you are probably wondering why this is a big deal. L has been invited to - I believe - four or five parties. EVER. Not including family parties of course. Part of L's Autism is that he really struggles to make or maintain friendships, and is never invited to parties. He seems to be popular in school, and is liked by the other kids, but never invited anywhere. To me, I have to say this says more about the parents than it does about the children themselves. He is VERY excited and can't wait to go, we have a countdown on the calendar so he can keep track of the days until it is time to go. I'm so pleased for him and hope he enjoys it.

2. It's Friday, this means Fajitas! And we're having family game night tonight to try out one of the fab looking games we received as part of the Toys R Us 2012 Toyologist program. Now we just have to wait for the mister to get home!

3. I've nearly paid up all of my Christmas savings money, so in a couple of months I can go on a spending spree! I started saving on Boxing Day, and buying one or two things here & there in sales throughout the year so I am pretty well organised and looking forward to going out and doing a 'big shop' in November! I'm looking at a balance bike for E for Christmas, Puddy Muddles has them for a special pre-order price of £30 with a year's warranty which is a bargain, I really like the "Oowee" design. I am trying not to get ahead of myself but I do love the festive season and am really looking forward to it!

Don't forget to link up with Mich and maybe share some comment love with the other bloggers who join in this fab linky!
