Reasons to be Cheerful: Week 14 #R2BC

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart
This is the last week of Seasider in the City hosting the linky so please pop over to her place! As for me I am tired but cheerful as we reach the end of the first week of the holidays. Here are my reasons:

1) Spring

Its been oh so spring like up here for the last week (apart from the icy wind). We have plenty of blue skies such as that yesterday. The flowers are really coming out now with the daffodils making a real start at opening at last:

The fields around here are full of new lambs:

All this good weather has meant we have had plenty of time for family fun.

2) Family Fun

Its been a busy and fun time with running, scooting and trips to the park. Of course being Easter we had to go on an Easter Egg hunt too. Today we went hiking with the local ramblers group. There will be fuller post tomorrow but this is a taster:

3) Family

My brother and his family have been staying in Kendal for a long weekend and its been lovely to spend time with them. Our boys had great fun playing together and we had lots of fun together:

4) House sorting

The seemingly never ending job of sorting out the house took a huge boost this week. My family came to help replace the ladderax with a dresser which has made my front room seem lighter and bigger:

A lot of hard work but it feels so much better. Now to work out what to do with the rest of the room (and house)!
