Why is it important to celebrate? Well it's a chance to join with loved ones and have a jolly good knees up. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, an anniversary, a birth, a life or anything really, there should always be an excuse to join with family and friends, enjoy ourselves and be thankful for the things we've got. There's far too many things in life that can get you down (especially at the moment) but if we sit back and reflect, as somebody far more eloquent than I am put it, there are lots of "reasons to be cheerful".
So here I am 3 days left at work and looking out into what the future holds for me and my little girl. The business is taking off far quicker than I ever would have hoped for (for which I am cheerful) and I can genuinely say I am loving every minute of getting to know potential customers, suppliers, networks.
I am currently running a competition to win 10 free party bags. All that entrants need to do is email me with their favourite party game and tomorrow I will randomly pick a winner (by the way you can enter by emailing me - just go to www.personalisedparties.co.uk and click on the 'get in touch' page - it would again make me cheerful if you did this!). I have been completely taken aback by the volume of entrants and some of the brilliant party games that have been put forward.
There are lots of reasons to be cheerful and lots of reasons to celebrate. In fact we don't need to have a reason - lets just all be cheerful and celebrate that fact that we are!!!
See you all very soon
The Ever Cheerful (well occasionally grumpy!) Maxine
