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


Mich is taking a blogging break and #R2BC is being taken care of by the lovely Clare at Seasider in the City while she is 'away', so be sure to pop across and link up.

What are your reasons to be cheerful this week?

My reason is quite simply that I am having a really lovely week. It's been relaxed, no rushing around, no hassles, no worries... Just calm. We've had our pancakes, we've watched movies and played some games, we've sat around in our PJs doing absolutely nothing, I've seen my fabulous BFF a couple of times (I don't manage it nearly enough)... It's been good, and I have enjoyed it.

I've managed to get some more reading in for #50Books2013, and as I was not particularly enjoying The Scarlet Letter I am taking a break from it and reading Beautiful Creatures, which has just been turned into a movie. A wants to go and see it, but we both want to read the books first. So far so good, I am thoroughly engrossed in the story of Ethan & Lena and am just over half way through the first book of the Caster Chronicles. I have downloaded all four to my Kobo & plan to whip straight through.

With it being Valentine's Day today we'll make a special dessert or two to enjoy as a family after dinner tonight, and maybe we'll watch a movie together. Tomorrow is my niece's birthday and her celebratory meal was shuffled from Wednesday to Friday, so we've had to rejig our plans & routine a little. But, it'll be a good evening and I'm looking forward to the Mexican buffet being put on by my sister, & having some cake!

I hope everyone has had a good week!

ooo cake - always worth a smile
I have picked up and put down a few books already this year, if they don't grab my attention quickly I tend to lose interest quickly! I'm currently reading The Lies You Told Me which is quite good so far.

Enjoy your special desserts x
