Reasons to be Cheerful: School's Out for Summer! #R2BC

Thanks everyone for joining in last week as always I loved reading all the posts. Hopefully everyone is enjoying the weather even if it is a way too hot! Here are my reasons to be cheerful this week:

1) School's out for summer

The children and I all finished the school term on Friday. So nice to have 6 weeks of no school runs and only alarms for special days out! I do have to go in for one day during the time but that's not much in the scheme of things. We have so much to look forward to.

2) Seeing family and friends

One of the great things about living in a tourist spot is that people tend to pass through and stop to say hello! So far this week an old friend from my young free and single days took us all out for lunch as he headed home from Keswick.

Family have also been up for a few days and it was great for each of my children to have individual time with them. I also enjoyed catching up with them. Friends of the family have also been using Kendal as a pit stop and its lovely to see them if just briefly. 

3) Family fun

We have already had lots of fun and its not even a week into the holidays! This included an afternoon at Allan Bank

4) Raising money for charity

On Sunday my son and I ran the Race for Life together, well I say together but for the first time he beat me over 5km!

5) I did it!

I passed my teacher assessments so I can accept my place for September to be a trainee teacher! Exciting and nerve wracking as I have now resigned from my job to accept... Roll on a new era after the holidays..

I am sure we will have so much more to smile about as the holidays go on. Please join us and share your happiness:
