Win £25 Amazon Voucher

I am having somewhat of a grumpy week , I think it part like due to the fact I was quite ill a few weeks ago. I don't know if grumpiness is contagious but even the cat is looking grumpier that usual and believe me , the cat is never a happy soul. It is like death standing over me every time he looks at me.



So what can I do to cheer myself up I don't want chocolate some child thought I was having a baby.

I tried singing with my class and all was going well till after wind the bobbin one of them wanted a One Direction song.. I am old and out of touch!


I don't want wine.

I don't watch soaps.

I am not really a shoe shopper or a clothes fiend.

So what can I do ??

In the comments come up with some suggestions either fantasy suggestions that are clean ! or practical solutions.

And in return I'll offer up as a prize £25 worth of Amazon vouchers just in time for christmas as given my me.

  4. A bit of retail therapy always cheers me up! & if you can't face the crowds then you could always do it online? As for grumpy cat, I reckon a tin of tuna will work just great for him! :)

  5. Eat chocolate lots and lots of chocolate - or perhaps have a nice bath with a bath bomb, face mask, music and your favourite drink and book :) x

    ReplyDelete
  6. Book a pampering session to look forward to (or just invite the girls round to pamper each other and have a bit of a grumble :) they will always make you laugh!) if all else fails grab some cheesy films (with some top totty such as Ryan Reynolds) that always cheers me up especially if it includes a bit of ab action :D

  7. If money is an issue, I always find a wardrobe clear out and reorganisation works wonders. And best of all, it's cheaper than retail therapy- infact, it's free! You rediscover pieces you'd forgotten about, you see your horrible old t shirts for what they really are, and when you do buy new pieces, you have in mind what else you have!

  17. A duvet, a sofa, a cup of tea, candles, nibbles, and a nice, middle of the road film, and the cat on your lap. I'd probably add crochet to that as that seems to make me happy. Your milage may vary. :-)

    Oh, and for dire episodes of grumpiness, I have a happy sounding playlist on my ipod. I asked my friends to help me compile it and got some great suggestions!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think you should get some candles, your favourite drink and have a long relaxing bath, telling your family that you don't want to be disturbed until you come down again.

    As for the cat i'd show it pictures of grumpy cat and tell it if it wants to be a cat with attitude then it will have to try a bit harder

    ReplyDelete
  19. Walking always cheers me up and clears my head, even on a cold day a good long walk makes you feel better. Grab a friend or a dog, wrap up warm and go walking a couple of times a week, or daily if you've got the time. If you don't have time at the end of the day, try getting up an hour earlier or walking to work rather than taking the car.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Maybe get involved in some hobby classes in your local area, meet new people?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hang out with someone even grumpier for a while, it's all relative and should make you feel a bit better.

  22. Start horse riding. Its exhilarating, good fitness, helps body awareness and balance, gives you adrenalin rushes like you've never known (good, and bad sometimes), putting your trust in a 400kg animal who lets you on his back.

    Horse riding!!! It's exhilarating, good fitness, an adrenalin rush (mostly good, sometimes not so much), satisfying, its a whole new level of trust in a big powerful animal who trusts you in return and lets you on his back.
