Reasons to be Cheerful: Appreciation, Lake District and gardening #R2BC

R2BC at Mummy from the Heart

Is it Thursday already? Doesn't seem like 2 minutes since the last link up! I will have to be more organised next week when I am back in charge.... Here are my reasons to be cheerful this week:

1) Feeling appreciated

Whilst its sad my contract came to an end at the lovely school I have been at since December it was lovely to be shown how much the children and staff appreciated me:

2) A still and sunny Fell Foot

After the previous week's wind and snow it was heavenly running at our parkrun this week:

3) Gardening
It has not been a good spring so far for gardening! I have finally been able to get out and finish sorting out the front edge of the front garden:

Now to wait until the cold snap is definitely over to put in the bulbs etc that I have bought for the bed...

4) Appreciating the Lake District

My fell running filming is enabling me to appreciate parts of the Lake District I have never been to such as Todd Cragg:

Its also becoming very sociable for me as people from many different clubs now know me as the YouTube lady!

5) Proud Mum

I have sporting achievements for both children this week! My daughter who says she can't run had a brilliant school cross country finishing 8th - I must get her to parkrun again... My son got the results of his athletics club internal Sportshall competition. He came first in 2 out of 10 events - chest push & javelin - for an all over 4th place. He got a special medal for winning so many:

    Great reasons as ever. Yes, there's nothing like the landscape up there is there?

  2. Yes this weeks parkrun looks much better and Todd Crag looks amazing, definitely somewhere I'd like to see, Ahh your son looks so happy in that picture, well done to both kids on their sporting achievements. Mich x

  3. Your park must be just about the most beautiful park in England. Stunning. Happy Easter xxx
