Chocolate Party - R2BC

DD doing something with a syringe filled
with white chocolate. 
I'm borrowing Mich's idea and writing a Reason 2B Cheerful for each day of the past week. And of course I'm joining the linky on Mummy from the Heart.

Friday: I went to my cousin's house near Tel Aviv for breakfast. Well this wasn't such a reason to be cheerful as she  was sitting shiva, but it was lovely to see her as we hardly ever get together.

Saturday: We had a pyjama day and did absolutely nothing except eat, sleep, read, and play games all day.

Sunday: I don't remember last Sunday. If it were a terrible, no good, very bad day I'd have remembered it. But obviously it was ok so that's a reason.

Monday: Ditto.

Tuesday: Ditto.

Wednesday: We went to a birthday party after school. It was a fabulous chocolatefest with the kids doing all sorts of creative things with melted chocolate. And then they ate it all. DD came home and asked for a cut up apple and orange for supper.

Thursday (today): I went out for lunch with a friend. finally managed to pick up my new cheque books from the bank, and made it home in time for DD coming home from school. Just.

OK, that didn't work so well for me. However, it's the last day of the month and I need about 200 more views in order to reach my minimum number of page views for November. Anything less is unacceptable. (This is called the tail wagging the dog but sometimes it's like that. It just is.)

Next week is a big week for us as we have a birthday in the house and it's not mine. I expect I'll find plenty of reasons to be cheerful around the birthday theme and that'll make up for this week.

  1. Is there such a thing as a minimum number of page views for a month? lol, Is this something you just set for yourself. I rarely look nowadays unless asked to.

    You PJ day last Sat sounds good, I might just take your inspiration for this Saturday. Mich x

    1. It's not an official thing but I have a personal minimum that if I don't achieve it I'm disappointed in myself. It's totally related to the number of posts and I only wrote 7 posts this month.

  3. Well chocolate has to be good and I really enjoy how you celebrate the mediocre days which were obviously fine or you would have remembered them more clearly. Here's to days in pyjameas too!

    1. If I get less than a certain number I feel like a novice blogger. It'd be like a competitive swimmer only managing to do a few laps of the pool. Not that I'm competitive, I just like to set myself little goals and challenges.

  5. The chocolate fest sounds wonderful and okay days are better than bad days - hopefully they will all be good days next week xx

    1. Exactly, there were no bad days. It was just an ordinary week - and thank God of that.
