#R2BC - The New Year Edition

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year.  Mine was a fairly quiet one, as I've written about in my last post.

After some fantastic news yesterday, I am starting off the year in a very cheerful mood, so, without further ado, here are my Reason's to be Cheerful this week:

  • I GOT THE JOB!!!  I got the phone call at 7.30pm last night.  I was beginning to think that I didn't get it, then out of the blue, the phone call came through!  I am so stupidly excited.  I have been offered a permanent position within the HR department of the theme park at which I was working at last year.  I start on the 14th January, so I'm now in the mad panic of trying to find childcare for the boys!
  • It's a New Year, so new year, new start and all that.  I am determined to make this year a happier year, to beat my depression and to enjoy it more.
  • I have set up a Goodreads challenge to read 50 books by the end of 2013.  I am hoping to smash this target and in doing so, hopefully that will also keep me off facebook so much, as I feel that I spend way too much time on there.  I have also joined in with Mama Owls #50Books2013 linky with this and set up a brand new blog dedicated to my book challenge.
I think, for the time being, that is it for this week.  What have you got to be cheerful for this week?
