My Cheerful List #9 – Bristol

Welcome back to My Cheerful List. In case you missed last week’s here is #8. A place for me to find something that has made me cheerful this past week.

This week we said Goodbye to October, and Hello to November. Today’s includes a trip to Bristol.


We’re not a huge fan of Halloween, it isn’t something we make a huge effort on; should the children request to then we will maybe join in. I did buy some cat ears to wear in work; and ended up being the only Midday Supervisor to do so! All good fun.

Met up with a friend and her little ones, where this week we took a visit to The Donkey Sanctuary. The littlest ones were apparently going through some rather hormonal surges…It was nice in a funny way that it wasn’t just my child having a tantrum. We’re lucky to have rain free days at the moment.


It’s My Birthday!

I turned 35 this week, I can honestly say I have been so spoilt. My husband always spoils me each year and Christmas too; this year is no exception. He is very good at gift ideas. It wasn’t just my husband and children who spoilt me; friends and in laws too. I love each and every single; I thought I would share my awesome gift list from my family and friends.

I had a wonderful lot of cards, hand made ones too. I really, really have been spoilt.



I’m never really sure what to do for my birthday to celebrate. I decided I’d like to go to Zaa Zaa Bizarre in Bristol, all the children love it there too; and it is cheap. My friend and her (grown up) children joined us. We spent the whole day in Bristol it was so lovely.  We visited the Milkshake bar – Shakeaway; highly recommend this place, they take your favourite chocolate bars, and make them into ice cream. I had one with Kinder Bueno and Forero Rocher in; it was amazing. Broadmead and Cabot Circus were the places we visited, spending a great deal of time in their huge Primark.

It was perfect. Even brought some Christmas presents, and Harry Potter Baubles – so much for our themed Christmas this year; maybe it should be Harry Potter themed.


It has been a lovely week, it didn’t escape without panic. But I am okay. I bloody hate this anxiety shit, but right now there really has been some incredibly cheerful moments.

Blog work is on the up, new study and awareness thigs coming up. I just need to smash the feeling of drowning out of my system. ..

How has your week been?

I hope it has been okay for you.
