Reasons to be cheerful….

Posted on

… on a grey cold Bank Holiday Monday…

when  the duvet is calling… but there is always something to brighten the day if we look hard enough.

For instance if you are a Manchester City supporter  ( as is my brother) you may be biting your nails,  but have some belief it’s nearly there.  As a  United supporter I am taking heart from the fact that strange things can happen on the last day and come what may Manchester will reign supreme.. good enough reason for cheeriness.

This week has seen several reasons to feel good – we celebrated a great life of service to young people at a retirement party for the Chief Executive of  Nightsafe our local homeless charity.

flowers and cupcakes

what  better combination to ensure happiness… unless you go for ..

chocolate cake and  beer, which graced the Birthday Boy’s table at the Comedy Night this week. A true surprise brilliantly organised by Mrs Birthday Boy  inducing an actual jaw dropping moment we will all treasure for a long time.

As we will  the night of hilarity and tear inducing laughter that followed accompanied by tapas,  wine and great company… yes tapas in Blackburn – and excellent they were as well.

Several great combos giving reasons to be cheerful as the rain arrives… along with a couple of other goodies brightening  my day…

1.  Two weeks and I will be sitting in the Ibizan sunshine

2. Tickets confirmed for Bruce Springsteen in Prague with  brother – beyond excitement for this one – listening to Wrecking Ball as writing…

So I am going to take these memories and anticipations  with me to watch Blackburn Rovers at  Ewood Park this evening where there will, I suspect, be very few reasons to be cheerful… but we live in hope…

  1. Not many reasons to be cheerful at Ewood Park last night, although the chicken in the Blackburn scarf that was thrown onto the pitch must have raised a few smiles 🙂

    • Ha it did – there is much speculation today as to what happened to it… I happen to know it has been successfully rehomed and is safe and well…
