All is well here at the moment, I had a lovely weekend away with my JJ and since Sunday 10.30am I have not been on this computer at all. I have had a week away from blogging completely to just think and be. I really need to get on with sorting my weight and allowing myself some time to be able to exercise and get early nights. So anything appearing on the blog this week has been scheduled and written prior to Sunday morning. There is nothing like being organised, lol!
This week I am grateful for my growth in relation to money. When I first met dh I believed all money was meant for instant gratification and it never ever occurred to me to save and to spread out my spending. I have changed a lot in 20 years and now I am pleased to have a good balance - I spend and treat myself sometimes and at others I save and enjoy a larger, more fulfilling purchase like a holiday with my family. January/ February are expensive months for us with various insurances needing paying and the balance on our Easter holiday and I feel so blessed that we are able to meet these payments.
I am also smiling a lot about my recent purchases with the Christmas money I received. I do love a bargain, especially a shiny one -
And now it is your turn, what is making you cheerful and grateful this week?
Why don't you join up with Reasons to be Cheerful this week? It is such a fabulous opportunity to stop and reflect on your life and to see the good in it. Have a read about what I believe and why #R2BC started, it has literally changed my life to have this weekly focus on what is god in life. How easy is it to allow things to become doom and gloom?
There are an amazing group of people who join in with this linky, I call them my Cheerful gang and I am so grateful for each and every one of them. Some of them have been here since the very first post back in January 2011 and others just linked up for the first time last week but they all mean the world to me.
So if you want to join in, go for it. We are a no rules kind of linky - you link up what you fancy (well as long as it is not just a blatant advert), a recipe, the simple things in life, photos, a story - whatever! Add in the blog hop code so people can travel around and then visit others and share the comment love. I'll come and visit everyone at the weekend and do my bit....
Have a great week, Mich x
