The brilliant Michelle at Mummy From the Heart (who has just joined Love All Blogs and is now a colleague of Mummy’s) runs a linky post called Reasons to be Cheerful. This week she is cheerful because the theme has been running for a year, and to celebrate she has lots of wonderful prizes! What’s more there are books, and that makes me more cheerful than anything. So here are my 3 reasons to be cheerful this week:
- The pain in my side has gone away. I have been complaining of a pain for a few days. After painstaking consultations with various googled websites Mummy came to the conclusion that it was either a bladder infection or appendicitis. She prodded me and wiggled my legs according to all the respectable instructions she could find on Yahoo, and determined that I did need to see a doctor – preferably one with an MRI machine by his desk. She waited 45 minutes whilst redialling the Dr’s surgery the requisite number of times before securing an appointment. I left school with a pale face and mute tongue. It was fear more than illness – of Mummy. In the waiting room I asked her to please not be cross with me, but the pain had gone!
- I finally spent my birthday Amazon vouchers on 6 new books, as recommended by Fantastic Reads. I am now mostly to be found by the front door awaiting the postman. Bug’s law says that he will come and leave a red card whilst we are at the depot collecting yesterday’s missed delivery!
- Mummy has finally launched her business and started making money! This means that not only can we go on a holiday that doesn’t involve mud, but that I can wheedle some more new books out of her when I finish the new ones. Which should be on Sunday, depending on how proactive the postman is!
