My Reasons To Be Cheerful and Word Of The Week

By | January 22, 2015

I’m glad it’s nearly Friday, life throws us curveballs occasionally (Ha! More than that!) and we’ve had quite a large one this week.

“Keep calm and carry on” would definitely be applicable.

I could choose any number of words for this week but I’m going with:

Soppy

And here’s why:

1. Mr Bluecrisps

A quirk of fate brought us together and we joke about the fact it’s nearly been 15 years and people serve jail sentences for less time.

Joke is the key word there because we seem instinctively to know what the other is thinking, finish each other’s sentences and certain scenarios can make us giggle like a pair of primary school children. I never want to lose that.

Yes, we have huffy moments, we’re both as stubborn as each other and the last word is never just that, but snuggling up together watching Broadchurch or similar is just lovely.

To quote a song which I absolutely loath but the words apply “I am your lady and you are my man”. (Mr BC knows to switch that over if it pops up on a music channel!)

It’s not easy being self-employed, especially after Christmas but Mr BC works hard to earn a crust or two (just as well as T loves toast so much).

2. Parents evening

We had D’s today and her teacher is very pleased with her. There are still confidence and bottling-up of emotions issues but we are working together and that is such a positive feeling.

3. 1:1 time

D attends an after school dance club once a week and T and I catch up in the coffee shop before we collect her. He’s growing up fast, finding his own sense of humour and a certain amount of attitude. Cuddles are very rare but very welcome when administered.

I guess I’m just in a soppy and grateful kind of mood.

How has your week been?
