Reasons to be Cheerful week 14 #R2BC

Ojos World

I've handed back to the lovely Jo at Ojo's World for April, I know she will look after everyone! So back to my own reasons:

1) Family fun

We had a super weekend enjoying the Kendal Festival of Food. A couple of days exploring the foods that Cumbria has on offer plus sunshine and cute animals:

I had a huge smile on my face for most of the weekend!

2) Mother's Day

I felt thoroughly spoilt this Mother's Day weekend. The children had made beautiful cards at school and my son couldn't wait to give me his so I had it Friday night! Then on Saturday I was awarded a lie in and breakfast in bed cooked by my daughter:

scrambled egg on toast

I was given the hand sewn bookmark my son had made at school:

Then whilst we were out my son chose me this heart necklace from a charity shop:

On Sunday I was presented with Choco Snaps in bed by my son before we headed back into town for more food festival! My final treat was Sunday dinner at Table Table - yummy.

3) Blue Skies

There is nothing quite like blue sky to keep you smiling:

    Sounds a great day out. I love foodie festivals. Those chicks and lambs are gorgeous. We took my daughter on her first trip to a farm last weekend and saw a tiny 2 day old lamb.
