Reasons to be Cheerful: History, Friends and Science #R2BC

R2BC at Mummy from the Heart

It's August which means I am back in charge of the happiest linky around for the next month! Thanks Michelle for hosting in July. Looking forward to linkers old and new joining in this week. Here are my reasons to be cheerful for this week:

1) History

I had a flying visit to the British Museum on Saturday. Being a history buff means that I love getting close to items such as the Sutton Hoo helmet:


2) Back to Chesham

This is where I had my first flat, met my now ex husband and lived for about 5 years. It was lovely to be back there for a couple of nights:


3) Friends

We were down to catch up with my old High School friends and their families. Celebrating over 30 years of friendship with conversation, wine, good food and cake:

Ambleside Sports 2018

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall 

On Thursday my son and I headed up to Ambleside for the annual Ambleside Sports. We have been twice before in 2014 and 2015 but have been away for the last couple of years as it is always the last Thursday in July. The fell race was part of the club championships but there was plenty of other stuff going on as well.

We watched some cycling and the start of the gruelling 9 mile Rydal Round before he had a Cumberland & Westmorland Wrestling competition. Unfortunately he came across the eventually champion in round 1 so that was game over... Then he lined up with his team mates for the under 12's fell race (photo by Woodentops):


It was a there and back again race up quite a steep hill:


He had an awesome sprint finish:

Three Musketeers at Williamson Park

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

It is nearly 2 years since we went to see The Hobbit at Williamson Park. Last week my daughter and I went along to this year's promenade performance by The Dukes Theatre. This year's production is The Three Musketeers and we followed the signs to the first scene:


We were there in plenty of time for my daughter to get us front row seats:


We had eaten on the way but had time to eat our dessert whilst waiting for the play to start. It was a lovely sunny evening:
