Thinking about my Reasons To Be Cheerful #R2BC

By | December 5, 2013

It’s Thursday and I’d nearly forgotten about R2BC this week. It’s been a long one. I’m going to start with why and then do a positive spin.

1. D’s bunny (pic below) got lost (we presume) at school on Tuesday. She is utterly devastated as Bunny is her little
carry-around anxiety soother, she (D) also has a heavy cold which means that Bunny is missing when she most needs her. But (glass half-full time), it’s meant that she can be at home with me and
have cuddles on tap.

2. D also has a hospital appointment tomorrow at which there’ll be blood tests and the likely outcome is
fortnightly injections. Another occasion where Bunny would have been very welcome. But (glass …etc) I’m pleased the consultant is seeing us, is taking things forward.

3. We went to see the Christmas lights being switched on last Saturday, it was very busy and D tolerated it all for 25 minutes, which was 24 longer than I
expected. She went “ooooh” when the lights switched on, as did everyone, a collective “ooooh!”.

4. T is having a much better time
at school and has been playing in the school football team. They have games within the school day, which pleased him no end, one day and one tomorrow. His team won 5:1 today and he scored! A very happy but tired T tonight. 5. The decluttering is still continuing. D’s room whilst she’s been off. Lots of books and toys destined for
the charity shops. Hopefully there will be little folk round our way who like Wonder Pets/Ben and Holly/Peppa Pig, I’m sure there are.

6. We seem to have a little tradition on a Sunday afternoon now, curtain drawn early, lights off, popcorn at the ready and it’s DVD time. Last week was Despicable Me 2, this week will be The
Croods (as we have a pre-release copy for review). It’s become a nice, snuggly time and, unlike the cinema, if someone needs the toilet or fancies doing something else, that’s fine, no pressure.

7. I’ve moved from Overblog back to WordPress and self-hosted. I feel so much more in control and am not waiting around for emails to be answered, that never are. Which leads to..

8. I’ve had an idea for a linky for a while but Overblog did not seem compatible with linky or badge codes (not for me anyway). I need to work out
how to make a badge and then I’ll be running.

So, there we go. I’ve been so disappointed for D this week (Bunny-wise) that I didn’t think I had any Reasons and I’ve found 8!

Positivity rules! Now we just need Bunny back….

Oh poor D! I know you have found silver linings, and some
great reasons………but all I can think is: I want to find D a
new bunny! Love the new look, and thanks for joining in!

I know! My poor girl 🙁
I had bought a replacement from eBay about a year ago as I was terrified of this happening and Bunny got discontinued years ago.
But it’s not the same, hopefully we’ll get news on Monday x

Thanks, I was surprised to find so many too. Bunny (or lack of) has been the focus, as well as a poorly D.
Very glad for R2BC 🙂

Still miss a cat comforter we lost in Birmingham when my
now teenager was a baby. He has to be reminded of it and I think
just humours me but the fact it is lost still devestates me Hope
Bunny turns up safe and sound. Well done on finding the positives –
love number 6 in particular. The others prove you are still that
inspirational lady I am getting to know better all the time via
your blog.

Thanks so much Kate, it’s been quite fraught (quite is an understatement without Bunny) but we’ll get there.
Very much looking forward to cinema Sunday after a busy yesterday. Hope you all have a lovely weekend 🙂
