Reasons to be Cheerful: Merry Month of May #R2BC

R2BC at Mummy from the Heart 

I actually quite can't believe its May already, what on earth happened to April? Any how it's time for Michelle to have a break and my turn to be the host. In case you hadn't realised we have changed the day of the linkup to Saturday as with all our busy schedules our regular linkers voted for a change from Thursday. This may take some getting used to! 

Happy Star Wars Day and here are my reasons to be cheerful this week:

1) Phone

Last week I had a disaster and knocked my phone down the loo... Unfortunately it didn't survive the experience. I have now got a new to me replacement which is in much better nick than my old one so I am so happy! Let's just hope I have no more tech disasters...

2) Bathroom

When we moved in the budget for decorating ran out and the bathroom had to be done in the left overs from my bedroom. The off white paint which looks nice in my room made the bathroom look drab and dirty. So I decided that after 4 years it was time to finally give it a mini makeover. The new teal is so bright, cheerful and fresh:

2) Running

For one reason or another I just hadn't been out running. So whilst my first coat of paint was drying I headed out along the old canal for 5km in glorious weather:

I really need to make sure I get out more regularly as my mood is so much better when I've running!

3) Home and Away

By the time you read this I will have been enjoying a mini break just up the road! I am having a weekend with Single With Kids co-ordinating in our own backyard at Rydal. It is wonder to get away without the hassle of a long journey to get there. It's a return for us from 4 years ago when we went as paying customers. I really must recreate this shot of my son at Brockhole as he is so much taller!

  1. Thank you for the Saturday switch - I'm enjoying being on time for a change. Def recreate that photo of your son. It looks like a lovely spot. Well you live in the Lake District so it's hard to find an unlovely spot I imagine. Have a good week ahead. xxx

  2. That's the same colour I'm thinking of doing my bathroom! It's a lovely fresh colour, isn't it? I hope the picture of your son makes it on too next weeks post x

  3. Have a fab time at Rydal Hall, I'd love to visit there and all around your neck of the woods really. Good job on the bathroom. Mich x

  4. Do a job swap with the staff up here!

  5. He refused to pose alone so I can't use the one I took... oh well. Yes the colour is so refreshing

  6. We do have eyesores but not too many ;-) Glad to keep it a laidback linky with the switch
