Reasons to be Cheerful: Hero Worship and Energetic Fun #R2BC

R2BC at Mummy from the Heart 

I am a day late once again to join in with Michelle! Life is so hectic at this time of the year so we have decided that there will no official link up again now until January when I will be back hosting. Meanwhile here are my reasons to be cheerful this week:

1) Hero Worship

As a teenager I avidly watched our wonderful middle distance runners as they dominated the world of athletics. To actually meet one of my heroes whilst at the Liverpool Cross Country, put a huge smile on my face. (I did have to explain to my 12 year old why I was so excited!

Steve Cram

2) Energetic Fun

On Friday I went country dancing with my mum and the U3A. Boy can those retired folks show us young 'uns a thing or too! So much fun.

Then on Sunday my mum persuaded me to go for a short hike up Cunswick Scar. A lovely day for blowing out the cobwebs:

3) Feeling Christmassy

We acquired a mini Christmas tree at Ikea on our way home from Liverpool. We haven't had a real tree for years even if its smaller than our fake tree:



  1. You cna see in that picture just how chuffed you are to have met the runner (I've no idea what his name is!). Have a fabulous Advent and Christmas. Mich x

  2. For a moment I thought you were holding the Christmas tree in your hand - the sack looks like fingers. Small is fine but that would be ridiculous. Have a great December and Christmas, if I don't see you here before. xxx

  3. Meeting a hero is a great R2BC! Glad you enjoyed your walk, I imagine it was a bit chilly?

  4. Now I'd like to meet Roger Black :) But Steve Cram was certainly one of my heroes too. Your Mum sounds like a hero too, and a wonderful role model x


I love it when people leave a message
