Reasons To Be Cheerful #R2BC

Thursday, 19 July 2012


How fast has this week gone?! It feels like yesterday that I was writing last week's R2BC. Having said that though, I keep getting my days mixed up this week and yesterday I kept thinking it was Thursday. Oh well I suppose one reason to be cheerful is that its nearly the weekend.

Anyway, please pop over to visit Mich at Mummy From The Heart who hosts this fab linky by clicking on the pic on the left.

Here comes the cheerfulness...


1 //  It's Oliver's last day at playgroup tomorrow. I'm a bit sad that he's leaving as he's loved it there but he's starting nursery school in September which will be a fantastic step for him and I think he'll love it. I'm baking some thank you cupcakes for his playgroup helpers tonight.

2 //  I'm having loads of time off work over the summer! I'm using quite a lot of my annual holidays to spend more time with the Darlings and we're planning a few days out including some trips to the seaside. 


3 // Lydia is starting to talk more and more, she's saying new words every day. She's picking up words really quickly and sounds so cute. She's been able to say 'yes' for a while but has always said 'yeah'. Yesterday she started saying it like 'yessss' and it's so adorable! Sometimes she just babbles at me and I don't have a clue what she's saying so I pretend to have a conversation with her.

4 //  Hubby is on the early shift this week so my mum and dad are looking after the Darlings while I'm at work in the morning. They give the Darlings breakfast, drop Oliver off at playgroup and pick him up. This week they've also taken Lydia to a different playgym or toddler group every morning. I absolutely appreciate every single thing they do for us. They're the best!

So what have you got to smile about this week? If you want to see what other people are cheerful about, pop on over to Mummy from the Heart to read their stories or follow the linky below!

  3. Great reasons. I can't wait until my little monkey starts to talk. It must be so exciting to be able to communicate in this new way!
