Reasons to be Happy

You're not from round here

My reasons to be happy

The past few days flew by so quickly but we had a wonderful Christmas. I am very grateful for all of the lovely gifts that we received, the delicious roast dinner and buffet tea cooked by my mum and a relaxing Boxing Day. The Mini Mes were up at 6.20am filled with excitement waiting to see if Santa had been and they were still buzzing at 8.30pm when they finally settled for bed.

My blogging Secret Santa gift arrived - a lovely Bumble Bee set from Lush. Thank you, whoever you are, I love it as does Minxy so I need to hide it away!

Yesterday after sorting all of the cardboard and finding places for all the new toys, the Mini Mes went to their dad's house so I headed to the cinema to see The Hobbit with my mum and sister which is a superb movie. The Mr went to the pub with my dad and sister's boyfriend for a few pints and to play darts so it was nice to have the girls together while the lads were occupied too.

I don't tend to do a lot of shopping in the sales but I managed to pick up some calendars, a onesie and some nice smellies.

I'm really looking forward to New Year's Eve. Usually the Mr and I stay in, watch a movie and have a few drinks (I've never been out for it!) but this year my parents are hosting a party with all of the family round and I can't wait. It's this time of year when loved ones are appreciated and I really enjoy spending time with them so I feel it will be lovely.

What reasons to you have to be cheerful this week?
