Reasons to be Cheerful 9.11.18

Another reason I love this linky is because I think it actually makes me do cheerful things to make sure I have something to report! And I do…

Christmas Songs

I was giving out on Twitter on November 1st when my disabled daughter’s favourite music channel suddenly began playing non stop Christmas hits. But B is thrilled! I had no idea she would like Christmas songs so much, but as my eldest pointed out, they’re mostly upbeat, tuneful and happy, unlike much of the stuff she sees.

Books

After a break of about 6 months, I am finally reading again: I really enjoyed and learned from a book by an autistic blogger I follow: Aspies Hate Christmas by Amanda J Harrington. And now I’ve begun reading the Killing Eve series by Luke Jennings after watching the TV show

Funrun

I took a chance and entered a family fun run in aid of Brian Tumour Ireland with B, planning to use her running buggy without any arranged help. But people are very good and within second of seeing the two of us plus two buggies someone offered to assist, both before and after the run.

Shrek the Musical

Tickets were bought for this to celebrate a joint birthday for B and my friend’s son and we all went together to the theatre. Sadly the evening did not end well for B, but I really enjoyed the chance to dress up and make myself up too.

A New hat

Another bargain from Lidl that’s warm snug and fleece lined. I love it!

Going to the pub

I brought B with me to a nearby pub for an hour to have dinner out with friends. She felt very grown up, and all was well at home while we were gone.

Exercise

The more demanding the better, as it gives my stressed head a break. This week I went to my zumba class and for a run with my running group in the Phoenix Park: the autumn colours were stunning.

Power chair

B got to try out a powered wheelchair with specially adapted switches and she got the hang of ‘Green means Go’ within seconds. She will need a lot more training before she would be approved for a power chair, but it was a great start and I was very proud of her.

  1. I love the idea that the linky means you do cheerful things. It sounds like there has been lots of fab moments, its a very cool new hat you have, perfect for parkrun and I bet the Kiliing Eve is very good as a book. Here’s for a fab week ahead! Mich x
