This week’s Reasons To Be Cheerful #R2BC

1.My stepdaughter’s return from Australia. She’d been out there for three weeks, attending a family wedding with her dad. She had a great time but it’s great to have her back. Despite the unbelievable bombsite of mess and devastation her bedroom has returned to since she re-occupied.

2. A phone call from my accountant. The taxman owes ME money!! Which shouldn’t be surprising, really, as I’ve earned sod all since I became a housedad.

3. Cuddling up on the sofa with my three kids and watching Up on DVD. The opening 15 minutes shot as a silent movie is one of THE great excerpts of film animation.

4. Making 5lb of breadcrumbs for 50 Christmas puddings to be sold at my sons’ school’s Christmas Fair. Boring, laborious, but strangely satisfying.

5. Raising £158 at my youngest son’s Class Tea on Wednesday. My chocolate and marshmallow cupcakes sold like hot cupcakes.

  1. divasupermum antoinette

    sounds like you have a lot of reasons to be cheerful, glad to hear some good news for a change

  2. Love the koala. Nice to see they’re actually real. I swear the one they’ve got in Edinburgh Zoo is just a grey cushion they’ve nailed to a post.

  3. Those are some yummy looking cup cakes, no wonder they sold so fast!
    & I had a wee check from the tax man, which amused me too as I don’t earn anything…happy days all round s x

  4. Beautiful girl and cute koala. Aren’t you the talent in the kitchen? Well done you

  5. Great reasons!
    Totally with you on the first section of Up, gets me every time!

  6. You should be a vicar’s wife – your cakes are a darn sight better looking than mine.
