May the 4th be with you #R2BC

Whoops good job Michelle posted and made me realise I'd lost track of the days! Can I blame getting injured running for effecting my brain? Anyhow better late than never and thanks to everyone who joined in last week. For anyone new to the linky we have a few relaxed instructions:

What do you have to do? Simple:

1. Link up a post about something that is making you happy or grateful. It can be a list, photos or any way you fancy

2. Add the #R2BC badge (at the end of this post) onto your post or blog so that people can easily find the linky and join in too if they want to

3. Share the love. This is the really important bit. Please don't just link and run, comment on at least a couple of posts and why not share with #R2BC too?

I'll stop by all linked up posts to comment and I'll share on social media too. Meanwhile here are my reasons to be cheerful for this week:

1) Lovely things

I've been supporting some small businesses and getting some lovely things in the post. First up Suzy's Crafty Creations who sent me an item I am gifting plus a personalised scallop shell for my bathroom. Secondly Eden Temptation Crafts who made me some masks including one to match my geekiness:

2) New board game

Whilst trying to ensure my son doesn't fall behind on school work and having fun I decided to try out Geogo! from Oaka Books. It tests out your map reading skills whilst being competitive too. My son beat me but only because I changed the rules so that you had to get one from each category:

3) Camping Out

We pitched our small tent so that we could have an at home camp out. The first night we gave in and went back to bed. The second night we had put in our camp beds and survived the whole night:

4) May the 4th

Being a Star Wars fan I ran my run on the 4th holding a lightsaber (I do not recommend this as it got very sweaty!). I made loads of people smile on my 4 miles:

5) Memories

I had ordered a photo album and frames to put the photographs in that I had discovered whilst sorting through memory boxes. It brought back so many happy memories. My daughter now has 2 of the baby photos and, after 16 years, I finally have 3 up on my wall:

6) Lovely Surprise

My run yesterday may have ended in disaster with a calf injury but it meant I took a different route home whilst hobbling. I passed the school I work at and discovered that the apple tree I replanted last year is blossoming! So glad it survived:

Now it is over to you...

  1. I'm always looking for board games that two can play so I'm going to check out Geogo. Re camping, yes I've also discovered that beds make all the difference. I wish your calf injury a speedy recovery. Wishing you another good week. xxx

  2. You're brilliant at making people smile. I can just imagine seeing you run past with your light saber or in one of your outfits. Have a great weekend. x

    Loving that apple tree. A symbol of hope much like the pear tree after 9/11. You do life so well with courage, humour and a keep on keeping on spirit that I really admire. Love camping out with the children and board games. Great you are supporting smaller businesses too at a time when they really need it more than ever #R2BC and yes Kate on Thin Ice commenting
