Reasons 2B Cheerful - All Round Entertainment

Full Circle
When I was little my best friend's younger sister announced one day that she was as bored as a stiff. I remembered that today when DD asked if she could go on the computer while I popped out to the shop. "Otherwise I'll be stiff board," she reasoned. Obviously I had to say yes.

It's Show Time
My year of mourning for my father is over on Sunday (so my sister informed me yesterday as I wasn't keeping track of the lunar calendar). For eleven months I've not worn any new clothes or been to any parties, celebrations, or places of entertainment.

I've just booked for DD and I to go to see two shows over the winter. Annie in December and The Wizard of Oz in January. They are both amateur productions but these shows are usually of a high standard with live music and a few professional actors along with the enthusiasts. One of my thrid grade students is a munchkin in the Wizard of Oz so that's added interest for me.

A Family Supper
I came home to find a message from my nephew asking if he can come for supper. A quick dash out to the shop for a gluten-free pizza and we're in business. He's due any minute.

As usual I have a light bulb for him to change but that's not why I'm cheerful. It's been a long time since we had family who could pop in for supper and we love it.

A Must See Movie
I found Taare Zameen Par (Like Stars on Earth) in English and I've told everyone about it.

I'm linking up with Michelle's R2BC on Mummy from the Heart.


  1. enjoy those shows. So nice to have family around. Love what DD said!

    1. Thanks Becky. She said it again this morning so I think it'll be around for a while. :)

  2. So glad you booked yourself a couple of nice shows to go and see, its been a long time since I have seen one. They are prohibitively expensive here nowadays. Mich x

    1. Well these are amateur productions so their not too expensive. I keep wanting to take DD to a proper show in London when we are there but Ive not got round to it yet and that will be very expensive.

    2. Crazy expensive, We haven't taken our kids either, because even if we went to Kids theatre week in August it would still cost in excess of £200 for the 5 of us!

    3. WOw. Yes I know for the two of us it'll be a once a year thing. \i remember the days I used to get student returns and saw everything for 5 pounds - including Les Mis and Cats when they first came out.

  3. Glad that being able to book some shows to go to makes you cheerful, and am wondering how you feel about the 11 months of grieving rule, do you think it helps? xx
