Reasons to be cheerful

Yesterday was 'Black Monday' the day of the year calculated to be the most depressing by well, h'experts I suppose! When chatting to my mother in law about lack of heating etc a couple of weeks ago I said "Well, things could be worse". She replied doubtfully "I fail to see how." But in the past week I've been proved right - we ended up with no cold water either and then when the thaw came had extensive power cuts and the drains overflowed and blocked. I also got a stomach bug in addition to my cold.

In the interests of not depressing the hell out of my blog readers I've been thinking of reasons to be cheerful other than "it could be worse". They are rather shallow I'm afraid but they've worked for me ;-) Oh they're also a bit UK centric I'm afraid but I figure if you're in sunnier climes you might not be in as much need of cheering up!
  • Hustle is back on BBC1 with the lovely Mickey Bricks (Adrian Lester) who steals from the bad guys and is the epitome of alpha control :-)
  • Season 1 of The Mentalist will be out to buy on DVD very soon. I still haven't decided if it's Patrick Jane or Simon Baker I'm in love with :-)

  • Most fab news of all is that a new series of NCIS is on! I am a huge Michael Weatherly fan, but perhaps you've noticed that???

Excellent reasons, Lorraine! I'm feeling better already :)

*sigh* Michael Wetherley. I love him too :-)

Another reason to be cheerful I've thought of for you--you still have that ed card to use to give you a piggyback out of the slush. That's a great reason right there.

Hoping for great health for you too, that always cheers a person up.

Ohhhh, mighty fine, all 3! I've been hunting down Hustle, but can only find two episodes. Know when the next one is, anyone? Hope things are cheering up for you, Lorraine.

Hugs, Lorraine.

And you've chosen some brilliant reasons.

Big hugs to you, m'dear. They're great reasons to be cheerful. And definitely don't forget you have the eds card. :-)

Lorraine said...

I'm glad you like... ;-)

The third episode of Hustle is now on the BBC iplayer Maya - it's on on Monday evenings at 9pm.

Thanks for the cyberhugs, it goes without saying that you guys are a huge source of cheeriness to me!

And the eds card, yep, I'll get there one day, hopefully before she retires :-)

HUGS Lorraine! Get well soon. If I was there you'd get a shiny sticker for being optimistic - remember those from primary school?

When you work out whether its Jayne or Baker you love, let me know, I'm just as torn :)
