My reasons to be happy

You're not from round here

My reasons to be happy

Maybe mentioning the beautiful sunshine last week tempted fate as it has rained all this week so far!

Still, I have lots of reasons to be cheerful....

Sunday we had a fantastic day at the Safari Park (you can read about that here and see the photos). Despite the rain we got up close with lots of animals and the Mini Mes loved picking out a little soft toy each to take home at the end of the day -there was no escaping the gift shop!

Monday I received some wonderful news! My brother called from Paris and informed me that he had just proposed to his girlfriend while on a river tour and she said yes. They have been together 5 years and they are a lovely couple who met at university in Coventry. Her ring is beautiful too, I asked her to send me a picture for a peek. I'm only a tiny bit green with envy, promise.
Maybe I'm next?!! *wishes*.

Both of the kids are now fully settled in back at school. Minxy had a few issues at first and she would cry daily and not eat any lunch but she is finally enjoying it and getting on well. Phew!

We have a child free weekend ahead while the kids visit their dad so I intend to have two mornings waking up naturally. It's the little things like this that make such a difference. I'm suffering a little with a cold and bad chest so some rest will be great!

What reasons to you have to be cheerful this week?
