Reasons to be Cheerful XIX (#R2BC)

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you'll know that some of this week has been incredible stressful but I'm still finding reasons to be cheerful: 

1) My weight

Went down a little bit this week which is good news after the week before! Just need to try and keep weight stable or going down a little bit and then really crack on in September once the kids back at school (why are school holidays so fattening?).

2) Days out

The weather up here had a little window of gorgeousness on Tuesday and I went to the Lakeland Maize Maze with my parents and the kids. The maze is in a stunning location:

There will be a full write up of our visit sometime soon!

3) Blogging

My blog is creeping back up the Tots 100 index so I'm obviously doing something right! I'm lucky to have a great relationship with some PRs and my children and I have been able to review some amazing products this summer. I started off blogging as a way of letting off steam about my life but it has now moved on to a small income stream and made me part of an amazing community.


  1. The maize maze looks amazing, I have never been to one, but do fancy it. Good luck with the weight, I feel your pain!

  2. The maize maze looks lovely, maybe something I should try, never been to one before.

    And I feel your pain on the weight loss, good luck!

  3. The lakeside Maize maze sounds and looks fab, I look forwards to reading the full writeup! Well done on your weight as well x

  4. I agree with number 1 - it's so hard to be healthy when there's an ice cream van round every corner. Will be easier in September I'm sure.

    Would love to do some reviews but not sure how you get them. Money is a bit tight this year and trips to the park are starting to lose there appeal. Do you just wait and hope?

  5. Income stream? Ears pricking up over here. Do tell how you do it! I get worried about mazes as they are fun but then I get all panicky but it looks fab.
    Weight loss, here's to success so far and more to come. Hoping to see less of you in September lol,

  6. The phot is lovely. Glad your blog is working out for you. Good luck with the weight loss when the children start back at school.

  7. All great reasons! Well done on the weight loss x


I love it when people leave a message
