Reasons to be happy

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

You make me smile
You're not from round here

I seem to be a lot more positive since I started joining in with link ups about happiness! The little things I took for granted previously now seem to have value and I appreciate them far more. Long may that continue!

My reasons to smile this week...

Summer Holidays
I am officially off work until September and I've been enjoying some great fun with the mini mes. It's only day four and we have already been on two bikes, enjoyed a magic show (you can see that here), spent two mornings in the paddling pool , had a picnic, had a bbq, been to two science events, spent an evening at the park, signed up for the book challenge at the library, made egg box bugs (that's here) and lots more. Love it.

Doesn't a little bit of sunshine lift your mood?! When I wake and see he sun pouring in it automatically makes me smile and makes getting out of bed so much easier!

Weight Loss
It's going well! Despite the odd ice cream due to the warm weather I'm gradually losing weight and clothes are feeling looser - yay!

What do you have to smile about this week?



  1. What a lovely week and great start to the school holidays! You've reminded me that I really need to lose weight ... and fast!

  2. You seem to have done an awful lot in a very short time. Hope you continue to enjoy the summer.

  3. A lovely cheerful post, the sunshine has done wonders for my mood too! xx

  4. Wonderful reasons and you do seem to be a very fabulous mum indeed.

  5. Wish I had your sun for my month off school! Waney for weight loss

  6. Glad to read that you are seeing things on the sunny side up. This blog hop is amazing and really makes us realise there is more to be happy about then we may think.

    I got to say, jus looking at your BBQ pics I'm smiling :0)Enjoy the sunshine and have a great weekend.

  7. That BBQ looks amazing! A few ice creams can't be that bad for you!

  8. I wish I had the summer off work! I'm so jealous! Let's keep our fingers crossed that the sun keeps shining for the next few weeks at least, it certainly makes everyone feel happier. And well done on your weight loss xx

  9. The sunshine does make everything a bit better doesn't it! Lots of time outside is good for all of us and glad you are enjoying the holidays x

  10. How wonderful to have a long stretch of time off to spend with the minis until September. Enjoy! Your BBQ picture is fabulous. Makes me want to have one tonight!

  11. Well done you with the weight loss - I am trying and getting nowhere! very demoralising! x
