Reasons to be cheerful: birthdays, Wii and more #r2bc

I do believe it is Friday which means I'm late, I'm late for a very important date! It is a good job this is one of the most laid back linkies on the Internet... Preparing for being back in a real job and a return to some pre-lockdown activities has caused me to get behind! Lots of these have been reasons to be cheerful though. I hope that you have some reasons of your own to share?

What do you have to do? Easy: 

1. Link up a post about something that is making you happy or grateful. It can be a list, photos or any way you fancy. 

2. Add the #R2BC badge (at the end of this post) onto your post or blog so that people can easily find the linky and join in too if they want to 

3. Share the love. This is the really important bit. Please don't just link and run, comment on at least a couple of posts and why not share with #R2BC too? 

I'll stop by all linked up posts to comment and I'll share on social media too. 

Meanwhile here are my reasons to be cheerful for this week:

1) Belated birthday celebrations

As my dad had to be quarantined after a holiday to Holland we only celebrated his birthday (and my daughter's boyfriend's) with a takeaway curry and a cake made by my daughter:

2) Wii fun

We are having so much fun on the old Wii. It does get temperamental sometimes as its an original so pretty ancient! I am finally getting the hang of Mario Kart - typically there was a disc read failure after I managed my first ever 2nd place:

3) Days out

Now I am mobile again we have had a couple of days out into the Lakes. One trip to catch up with a family friend staying in Langdale and one visiting Grizedale Forest. The sheep seemed please to see us:

4) Back to work

It was lovely being able to visit my students again and not be stuck with a video lesson. So much easier to help them grasp mathematical concepts when you are in the same room:

5) Bedroom Makeover

I am really pleased with the final look of my chest of drawers after upcycling them. Makes a real difference in my bedroom:

6) Berries

I completely surprised myself by successfully growing a few raspberries on my neglected new plant. Wonder if I can look after it until next year?:

Now it your turn! Please link up and grab the badge:

  1. I love your drawers. And that cake looks delish. Good luck for back to school tomorrow. Sorry I'm not really in a blogging mood atm. Maybe next week. xxx

  2. I also have a reason to have fun. I did my first meditation, and it helped me improve my mental shape.

  3. I also began to get involved in gardening. But I don't think it will last long.


I love it when people leave a message
