Reasons to be Cheerful: Half Term holidays #R2BC

R2BC at Mummy from the Heart 

Its a good job Michelle is hosting this month as I'm forgetting which day of the week it is! We are enjoying our half term break even if its very soggy one. Here are my reasons to be cheerful so far this week:

1) More School Cooking

My son did proper cooking this week and came home with yummy fruit cake:

2) Extended Family

Our trip to Manchester gave us a chance to meet up with my 2nd cousin and his family. I hadn't seen his wife and children for 12 years so it was a chance for the children (who are 3rd cousins) to properly meet.

3) Proud Mum

My son finished 8th in his latest fell race. This is his best finish position yet and he is putting together all that his coaches are teaching him:

4) Return to the bob

My daughter helped me decide on returning my long locks to a neat and tidy bob:

5) Castle Building

My son and his best friend have had a few castle building sessions with me for a school competition. They are trying to be as historically accurate as possible. I'm just having fun with the glue gun:

6) A Wet Walk

Yesterday we scaled Loughrigg with friends and by the time we reached the top we were soaked and the view had vanished. We still managed a smile though:

  1. Oh no, it’s soggy up there, we’ve had great weather down south all week.ive been showing my girls your castle progress, it’s very impressive. Mich x

  2. Some fabulous achievements once again this week and I really enjoyed reading about Madeline and Vivian Linford and their work on the Manchester Guardian x

  3. Your hair looks fabulous - super smooth and shiny. And sophisticated, which is a look I aspire to but rarely achieve.

  4. That cake looks nice and your hair looks lovely! Well done to your son for his race and all of you for the wet walk! Love the smiles!
