Reasons to be cheerful 1, 2, 3...

I have been appallingly bad at doing this, this year! But I will try and join in the last couple before the New Year!

1. We got internet and TV back
We've been without it since we moved at the end of November and it was particularly frustrating not having it whilst I was trying to do my Christmas shopping as it's better for me to do it online! But finally the virgin media guys arrived yesterday armed with drills and belts that don't work and installed it for us :)

2. I now have my own room
Ok so this isn't something that happened in the past week but as I mentioned before we moved at the end of November to a bigger house, which means I now get my own room. We also now have a downstairs toilet which is very helpful for me as I now don't have to struggle with the stairs all the time!

3. I have been re awarded DLA
DLA stands for Disability Living Allowance and is very helpful for me with my condition. It means I can re apply for my blue badge and helps me out with buying equipment to help me etc. I've been given it for another 2 years but I'm really hoping I don't need it for that long as I really want to go back to uni! (I do hate admitting I'm on disability benefits though)

Hop over to see Michelle over at Mummy From the Heart for more reasons to be cheerful :)


  1. Glad you got your own room and things are looking up for you. Good luck for next year and hope you make it back to university.

  2. Hey Jess, nice to have you back. So glad you have got your own room and I hope Cristmas is fabuloius for you,.
