Reasons to be Cheerful #R2BC

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

Today I received a cheque in the post. A Council Tax Rebate of £30.57 for paying too much. Right now I don't know whether to cash it or frame it. Part of me is waiting for the letter that will say it's all been a huge mistake and in fact I owe them.

More snow is forecast for tonight or Friday. While I do not find snow a reason to be cheerful and quite honestly I can do with out it, it's half term next week and at least the snow (if it hangs around) will help occupy the girls at a stage in my pregnancy when I really cannot get out and about that much.

Tomorrow I finally have my physio appointment to get some splints to help with my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. I have been in agnoy since around 29/30 weeks. Unfortunately my appointment is at 9:00am, the time when I would usually be dropping Amy off at school. I am unable to rearrange due to the fact the lday I am booked to see will be going on maternity leave the following week and there will be no one to see me until after Jessica is born. Thankfully wen I explained the situtation to Amy's school they stepped in and offered to look after her early in class so I could make my appointment.

Today is 9th February. Exactly one month to go until we greet Jessica. I am so looking forward to no longer having feet in my ribs and fists in my kidneys.

  1. Great reasons to be cheerful - not least a school that does care as well as education. Hope you get some real help with the carpal tunnel. It's a horrible thing and needs quick treatment x

  2. well done on rebate always nice! hope they sort out carpal tunnel.

  3. A Council Tax rebate is rare than a Tax rebate. I know this for a fact as I used to run a Council Tax office. You must frame it and ask them if they have made a terrible mistake.
    Stopping by from the R2BC blog hop!

  4. Great that you have a school which will help out it's Mums, hope you get the carpel tunnel sorted.

  5. What a helpful school. Lovely when they are good like that. I'm fed up of the snow and also see it as a pain in the backside but you are right, it is great for the kids!! Enjoy your rebate. Don't spend it all at once!

  6. I had carpal tunnel syndrome, I really sympathise with you. Hope the splints help. xxx

  7. Some good reasons to be cheerful. Hope you get yourself more comfortable especially so near the end! Have a lovely weekend x

  8. Rather envious of your council tax rebate. Spend it before they change their minds. Good Luck with the new arrival

  9. Good to get a council rebate. Hope you get through the next month easily and it flies by for you. Not long now.

  10. I had those splints are helping, I had mild CTS in my pregnancies and it is just awful.

    Hope half-term is painless for you. Mich x
