Reasons to be Cheerful: Week 18 - 2014 #R2BC


Welcome back to the blog hop being hosted here. The lovely Jo at Ojos World is having a well earned rest after looking after us all in April. Thanks Jo! Welcome to everyone whether old timers or newcomers we all want to share what has made you smile this week. To kick you off here are mine:

1) Guinea Pig lawn mowers

As the weather has stayed nice our little furry friends are enjoying spending their days nibbling the grass in the garden. Its giving my daughter and I plenty of practice at catching them too! Here is Bubble playing peek a boo:



2) Running

I managed to complete my first proper 10 km race since December this Saturday. It was a bit of a struggle but I accidentally broke my 1 km and 1 mile personal bests on the course:


My lack of training showed as I was slower than my last race but at least I finished with a smile and at a run. This is my official photo at the 9.5 km mark:


I've been out a couple of times this week training and my stamina is coming back quite quickly so hoping I'll be back on form when I repeat the race in July..

3) My flag carrying Beaver Scout

It was the annual District St George's service and my son was asked to carry his colony's flag:


What is making you smile this week?

    Love the photo of you - beautiful which takes a lot of doing after a long run I imagine so must be a natural beauty. Flag carrying brought back memories to me. Such a cute pet! @kateonthinice
