This week I have not really had to think about reasons to be cheerful, it has been a great week, so here goes:
- Little Man who was very much an outsider at his old school and left out of things has this week been voted by his classmates as the one they would like to be on the school council! We are so chuffed and really proud of him.
- I have been asked to attend another conference in June and report the proceedings. It is a 3 day conference in London so although I will have to spend the time away from home, I know that with those 3 days and the work it generates afterwards if nothing else drops in for June workwise we will be OK. Plus it means the first conference I did last month for this same company was obviously OK.
- Saturday night I am power walking a 26 mile marathon around London in my bra alongside 15,000 other women and men to raise money for Breast Cancer research, and I am really looking forwards to it. I walked it last year in just under 7 hours and got such a sense of achievement, so I am really looking forwards to this year as well.
- I bumped into an old friend from our old town, in our new town out of the blue the other day. She was here visiting and it was great going for a coffee and catching up. Best of all she was in town for an Extreme Stunt show which her boyfriend takes part in and they are touring the country. We had planned to take the boys to see it but as the mother in law was visiting that day had missed it. The show is going to be in Leeds on Sunday and she has given us guest tickets for free and backstage passes so the boys can go and sit in the Monster trucks and have a good look around them all. To say they are excited is an understatement!
- Although this doesn't sound like a reason to be cheerful, I can make it one. it appears there is a leak in our downstairs toilet under the sink and it is getting worse. It seems to be coming from under the pedestal bit of the sink so not something we can easily rectify. This does make me cheerful as the whole room desperately needs doing but with quotes of £1000 to do the work (we want it double skinning as it has originally been an old outhouse building made into an extension so the walls are only 1 brick thick, ceiling covering, boiler being housed in a cupboard, radiator put in, new toilet and sink and floor done), it has been on the end of the job list. However, we might just have to get it done now which I am secretly very pleased about!!
