Gosh so many link ups last week which was wonderful. So glad lots of people are starting 2014 so full of positivity. Here are my reasons to be cheerful this week:
1) The beautiful county of Cumbria
This weekend I got to see this county looking especially stunning. I loved sharing some of this on my Silent Sunday and some other posts this week. But I have to share another one:
2) Walking to and from work
I have been turning the disadvantage of major roadworks in town into an excuse to walk to and from work. I have had some beautiful views of the river Kent on the way and the children seem to have enjoyed our walks to. In fact my son got upset tonight when I said we were in the car!
3) A night at the panto
It was our annual trip to the Burneside panto on Friday. This local group always puts on a good traditional show with some very funny lines and audience interaction. We all had a lot of fun watching Cinderella and can't wait to see what they do next year! My daughter loved getting an autograph from Steven Hall of Britain's Got Talent fame. No photos allowed in the theatre during the show, so this is the best I could do:
4) Overcoming fears
Since we got guinea pigs at the end of half term my son has been petrified of holding his one Bubble, he hated him scurrying around. This weekend we had a major break through and he held Bubble on his lap:
5) Return of my iPad
My son accidentally dropped and shattered my iPad before Christmas and I had to get it repaired. Having it back this week was just wonderful. And in a timely fashion we received an iPad case to review too:
What is making you smile this week?
