My reasons to be happy

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

My reasons to be happy

Even though the weather has had a turn for the worse I'm still a cheerful little lady with lots to smile about again this week!

A relaxing child free weekend
Being so busy during the summer holidays keeping the kids entertained can be hard work at times, so I thoroughly enjoyed a chilled out, child free weekend with the Mr when the Mini Mes went to their dads house Friday-Sunday. We enjoyed a trip to the cinema, a pub quiz night and some retail therapy. I feel rather refreshed!

Family over for dinner
It's not that often that my family come over, generally we do the travelling and go to them, but I invited my mum and sister over Monday night for dinner. I cooked lasagne and had some chips, salad and garlic bread that everyone could help themselves to. The Mini Mes and I also made flapjacks (their current fav) and we made our own mint choc chip and marshmallow ice cream too. Both were a real hit so I was pleased.

Next week we are heading to Dorset for a few days camping. I don't really like mud or mess but I do love the great outdoors and I'm really excited! We have some fab day trips planned too while we are there (but if anyone has some suggestions on places to visit let me know!). We will of course miss Spartan but I'm sure he will be ok in the kennels with his freshly cooked chicken to eat!

Some pictures from our last camping trip

What reasons do you have to smile this week?



  1. Sounds like a lovely week, we have a child free night planned for next month and I can't wait! Hope your camping trip goes well x

  2. Sounds like a great week! We're off to the city for my birthday next month, just the mister and me - can't wait! x
