Reasons to be Cheerful: Week 6 - 2014 #R2BC

Ojos World

I've handed hosting back over to Jo at Ojo's world for February so its her badge this month! I am sure she will look after us all very well. Here are my first reasons to be cheerful for February:

1) A fun family weekend

Saturday saw my son's Beaver colony coffee morning which we all enjoyed. Lots of yummy cakes and my daughter won 2 raffle prizes! Then the children were allowed their first McDonalds of 2014...

Afterwards we went to the panto at Crosthwaite, can you tell the story from this photo:

On Sunday we went to South Lakes Animal Park and I've already blogged about our day and put up lots of photos.

2) New (to me) car

Just like Jo I've been forced to part with my old car due to prohibitive mechanics bills! Luckily I've been able to get a replacement which currently looks immaculate inside and out... how long will it look like this:

3) Proud Mummy

My daughter got a head teacher's award for writing in the style of Rudyard Kipling. Several members of staff and some of her class mates were all telling me today how fantastic it was so I was really glad to get a read. 

Her little brother was brave enough to hand feed birds at the zoo which he has never wanted to do before:

Why are you smiling this week? Please join in the hop:
