Reasons to be Cheerful

While my real life has been eventful, stressful and a great big steaming pile of donkey doo lately there are many ways in which things could be worse. I am grateful for my good health, good looks and the continued well-being of my loved ones. I am also glad that:
  1. My friends are so clever. But then I wouldn't befriend a dullard.
  2. Pear cider is on special offer at the moment.
  3. I still have all my shoes.
  4. I have an emergency Cadbury's Flake in the kitchen cupboard.
  5. I still find a lot to laugh about, every day.
  6. I do not have a pet hair allergy.
  7. I have tomorrow off.
  8. I live when and where I do.
  9. The Shawshank Redemption is such a good film.
  10. Cats are quite small.
What would you add to the list?

How odd... I have the same emergency Flake lurking in my cupboard. Have you tried strawberry cider - I've being lured back into having a weekend tipple, all thanks to the pink stuff.

Glad you've still got your shoes, L - your blog wouldn't be the same without your sexy shoes!!

I am glad that:

Toy Story 3 is as good as 1 and 2 (and to my mind has superior prison break action to Shawshank)

Cows smell so good

One can always improve one's mood a little by putting on clean socks

Cadburys brought out the white flake in dark chocolate

Interesting thoughts on cheerful appreciation, love the one about shoes!

Hmmm,I'm cheerful for
. . . people that love me for who I am and not who they think I should be.
. . . having painted my toenails a Tiffany Blue for summer fun.
. . . for being a hugger, even to people I don't know well. The hugs have been received well.
. . . being able to enjoy my own company.
