Reasons to be Cheerful: Week 16 - 2014 #R2BC

Ojos World

Once again thanks to Jo for hosting this week! Have to say I am not just smiling this week but grinning from ear to ear and here is why:

1) Family Fun

Think I will need a holiday to recover from this holiday with all the days out we have had! Cycling to Wray Castle, local fun at Damson Day, an adrenalin rush on Go Ape Junior, hunting for the Gruffalo at Grizedale, hiking from Elterwater and a day at Brockhole. There has been a lot of faces looking like this this week:

2) Blue skies

It's been wonderful to have so many days with blue skies which has enabled a lot of this fun to go on:


3) Winning things

I know I have had some lucky wins in the past but in one day I found I out that I had one two. The best one is a week's holiday in Cornwall thanks to their tourist board! Due to restrictions on dates we have to wait until next Easter to take it but something really exciting to look forward to. Just wish I'd been able to invite more of my family but will be great for my children to spend time with their only cousin.

Then I won tickets to see the Liverpool Philarmonic just a shame I can't get there and I am asking my family if they can go instead! Hey ho hope someone makes the most of my windfall..

Why are you smiling this week?

  6. We found a coin tree down near Tarr Bridge on Exmoor. Nice to think that there are more trees to come across. What a walk. 6 hours seems a good time for all the ups and downs. Smiling at the sign saying "Not recommended" I bet some see that as a challenge.#CountryKids

  9. Lovely place and fantastic photos! I love Cumbria and would so love to visit again. And I agree with you, one of the great things about having visitors is that you get to act like a tourist too! #CoutryKids.
