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.
- Moulin Rouge Film guide, this is one of my favourite films, only right to have a book to read about it too.
- Three P!nk albums including the new one Beautiful Trauma – fantastic album.
- Photo Paper
- Camera Case
- Reading light
- Fantastic Beasts
- Skull Candy Headphones
- Note Pads
- Lens for my phone
- Tripod for my phone
- Dark Crystal DVD – Can you remember that film?
- Waterstones Voucher
- Unicorn Puzzle
- Unicorn Pen
- Bottle of Prosecco
- Unicorn Socks
- Lumiere Purse
- Grey’s Anatomy Season 13
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.
