Reasons to be cheerful...

Quite an easy one to write this week! I mean, honestly, most so us are quite cheerful I hope? 


1. One of my best Christmases ever! We had no one in our house, just us 5. Normally I'd at least have my mam and nan, but his year I had explained I wanted a relaxed Christmas. The Mr only had 2 days off, and we had no plans to dress in anything than our new pj's. which is pretty much what we did! The boys loved their presents, dinner went perfect and the evening was relaxed and happy.....perfect x

2. My biggest boys birthday. My biggest boy turned 15, on Boxing Day,  the years seem to have flown by. I did have a moment on Christmas Day where I remembered what I was doing 15 years before. It was quite emotional, in a happy way. He's grown now, almost a man. He's quite a mature 15 year old and takes the care of his younger brothers quite seriously. He has a lousy choice in friends.......and I will keep saying it until he listens, luckily he likes his own company. He makes me smile and laugh most days, but most of all he makes me so proud! Xx 

3. My new camera! Every year my hubby and I get money off my grandmother, she's 91 now, so shopping for gifts is not always possible. Don't get me wrong shes quite fit and able, but hours trawling the shops for gifts is not always fun for the best of us! Anyway, this year, my hubby knew I wanted a decent camera, and he wanted something decent for our holidays. Up til now we've used our phones, but my phone camera isn't fantastic. So I have a new Samsung WB100. Being new at this means I have no idea if its any good yet! But it's a good place to start!
