1. Drugs. Ok that's going to get the spam filters creaming themselves. But the reason that I'm even mildly cheerful is thanks to the wonders of modern medicine. Anti-biotics and painkillers are my new best friends. Now I just have to wait for them to kick in...
2. Grandparents. I know they were on my list last week too, but this time it's not just for the look of joy in DD's eyes when she realises that she's going to see them, but the look of joy in my own when I realise I'm going to get a break. An extra pair of hands at the moment is most welcome.
3. Family lunches. The whole Bod for tea tribe is popping over for lunch this weekend and it will be lovely to catch up with everyone and have a real family get together. I'm making a huge fish pie. Yum.
Do you have reasons to be cheerful this week? Go on, scrabble around for a bit of positivity and link up over at the lovely Mich's place - Mummy From The Heart
Oh and before you go, I'm going to shamelessly plug my new guest post series Parenting Around The Planet. If you've got a mo check out this week's fab perspective from Canada.
