Reasons to be Cheerful XXXV ( #R2BC )

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

Not just smiling this week but I do believe that I was jumping with joy around the kitchen this morning and this is why:

1) Work

I had an interview at a local secondary school yesterday to be a receptionist and they rang and offered me the job this morning! Having not had a paid job for two years this was fantastic news. Its a perfect position for me as it uses many of the skills I acquired in my 6 years in my previous job. Being in a school it is term time only and is for 20 hours so I can still do everything else I need to do as a mum!

2) Diet

I was worried that another week of being unable to properly exercise wouldn't make a great result on the scales. It seems that tracking my intake on has kept me in control as I have lost 2 pounds this week which is the maximum healthy weight loss. Onwards and downwards from here I hope!

3) Proud Mummy

My daughter has continued her anti dog fouling campaign by contacting the local paper. They interviewed her on the phone and are sending a photographer round tomorrow so she can feature in the paper next week!

My son is still so excited about reading and loves sharing his new skill with everyone:

    Great reasons - love your lobbying daughter.
    Very well done on the job, green with envy I am

  3. Congratulations on your job, and two pound loss! Well done you, fab reasons to be cheerful! x

  4. So thrilled for you that you got the job. It sounds just perfect. Also that you have two children achieving great things - one as an artist and being photographer for the newspaper and the other as a reader who looks as if he is going to enjoy books.
