Reasons to be Cheerful XII (#R2BC)

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

I've got plenty of reasons to be cheerful this week!

1) My Holiday

As you may have seen I spent a chunk of last week on my prize holiday in Mallorca with my mum and my kids. It was great taking my kids abroad for the first time ever and even though it rained every day it was a real treat and experience for the grown ups too.

2) My Future

Whilst I was away my decree absolute came through so I'm now free to really start my life over and no longer live in a weird limbo of separated. It doesn't make that much of a difference to my day to day life but its taken so long to get this far I'm happy its finally at an end.

3) Work

The kids and I had a lovely day at the Station Inn in Oxenholme during the Companion Dog Show and Family Fun day last weekend. We may not have sold a lot of books, but I got the tan I didn't get on holiday and the kids had lots of fun. Next to us were the lovely Sean and Gill from Treasure Trails Cumbria so it was a very sociable day.

4) Party in the Park

This Sunday I'll be helping out at my first ever Party in the Park in Kendal. Its a completely free event for the residents of Kendal organised by my church St Thomas' Kendal. There will be bouncy castles, face painting, brass bands, ice creams, cakes and tea (and more!) and its all completely free. Lots of us are busy baking cakes for the tea tent and we're all praying for a sunny day from 1-5 in Maude's Meadow in Kendal. 


  1. I am glad that you had a good holiday and also hope that you enjoy your new life.

  2. Congratulations - go you! Proper single woman. Love these reasons, glad you got the tan. Good luck with the fun day it sounds brilliant. Enjoy X

  3. My decree absolute took forever too. Good to move forward with your life xx

  4. Lovely to think of you having a great holiday and things sound on the up generally.
    Whole new chapter opening up for you.

  5. Lovely reasons, glad you had a good holiday & that you got the news that you can get on with the rest of your life!

    Fingers crossed for sunshine!

  6. I hope the event goes well on Sunday, sounds like it will be fun.
