Reasons to be Cheerful XXXIII ( #R2BC )

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

I love it when Thursday comes around and I can join in this hop! Especially when every entry this month gives me a chance to win something from the lovely Michelle ;-)

1) Slimmer of the Week

Yes I did agin and was joint Slimmer of the Week at my Rosemary Conley class! With a 5lb drop it's given me a great boost to losing weight this year. That's everything I gained at Christmas plus an extra 2lb gone so I am very happy. Makes giving up booze this month and having lots of detox juices etc worth while! In total my class lost over 7 stones between us this week which is amazing. Just hope I keep up the momentum for longer this year...

2) My children

My 5 year old continues to amaze me at how much he is learning this first year at school. He quite happily counted to 100 this week and is doing simple sums. Back in the pool for his first swimming lesson of the year and he actually managed to go on his back too.

This term my daughter seems to enthusiastic at school about things such as comparative fractions and French. Off her own bat she has joined in the school's lunch time Quest club which is like a primary school Christian Union. Hope this will help her feel even more settled.

3) Out and About

I went on a lovely (if muddy) little hike around Crook with my mum and her local Ramblers group. It was great being out in the fresh air with lots of new people to meet and chat with and enjoying wonderful and interesting sights. One of which was yesterday's Gallery photo but I also found this bit of agricultural history:

4) Getting Crafty

I am finding rediscovering/learning crafting talents such as sewing and PomPom making. Its so rewarding to see the results and its very therapeutic!
