Reasons to be Cheerful: Work in progress.. #R2BC


Thanks everyone who joined in last week sorry if I haven't read and commented on everyone's post yet... I look forward to reading and sharing more of your happy posts this week. Jo will be hosting next month and has come to my rescue starting the linky for me this week! Updated post now I have caught up with my lesson planning

1) Spring!

As shown in my Country Kids post Spring is well and truly under way in the Lake District:


Though we woke up this morning to snow:


2) Getting Slimmer & Fitter

No photos this week but yay to a 1 pound weight loss and running leggings that are too loose around the tummy! After nearly a week of not running I managed to combine delivering my son's fell shoes with not one but two 4 km runs. Both of which broke some course or segment records:




3) Proud Mummy

My daughter had volunteered for her school's swimming squadron in the local gala last weekend. She doesn't swim a lot these days and wasn't too confident on the night. Her face when her swim team made it into the final out of 17 teams was priceless! They finished 5th overall which was very good when they hadn't had much practice.

#CountryKids A Spring Walk in Crook

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall


A lovely day on Sunday up here in Cumbria. It was perfect for a three generation walk around Crook checking out the signs of Spring:



We were lucky enough to spot a buzzard:


It's lovely being able to walk along the country lanes taking in the scenery:

Reasons to be Cheerful: Marching onwards #R2BC


Thanks everyone who joined in last week sorry if I haven't read and commented on everyone's post yet... I look forward to reading and sharing more of your happy posts this week.

1) Mother's Day treats

My children started Mother's Day well with breakfast in bed and lots of goodies:


2) Proud Mummy

My daughter and I were interviewed by BBC Radio Cumbria about the dangers of dog fouling due to her eye being damaged from it:





3) Community Spirit

My online photo community of Blipfoto has been feeling threatened this week after the company went into liquidation. All of us took part in a #BlipfotoForever meme to try and share a hug with our fellow blippers:

Muffin Top Magic Week 7

Just as well Kate changed the name of this linky as I am posting on a Tuesday not a Monday! Its been one of those weeks that if I had been on a traditional diet I might have had a hissy fit as the scales once again weren't showing the results I want. So back to the trusty photos:


Great to see that since last week's photo (on right) things have once again tightened up. My top is reaching lower down my body. It's even more obvious on comparing the side view from 2 weeks ago:


The running is really paying off on sorting out my core! I just need to keep it up and keep listening to the Slimpod, Chillpod and Fitpod..
