Reasons to be cheerful 20/03

Spring has begun, even the crappy weather is not so crappy when a little sun peeks through. It makes it much easier to think of reasons to be cheerful.
The simple things in life, that make us smile, are making an appearance. 
Spring flowers
Happy faces
Children playing outdoors

All those things are making me happy, but let's get a little more specific to me.

Reasons to be Cheerful

1. A positive meeting with little A's teacher. It was a brief parent/teacher meeting yesterday, checking how he is getting on. There's been a lot of discussion about inclusion, amongst SEN bloggers and tweeters. I am not getting into that here, I am just going to say: at the moment, my sons school seem to be getting it right. I left feeling positive that, although he has his differences, they are finding ways to teach him. 

2. I won a competition on Tiger Tales blog, to win a £50 voucher for my schools breakfast club. It was from Kellogg's, but the voucher is for M&S!? Whether they are able to use it for breakfast goods, I'm unsure. However it will be used to benefit the children, which works for me.

3. Growing up. Last night my son went to a Jason Derulo concert, his first big concert. I feel sick, proud, overwhelmed......... I could keep going!! 

So what's making you happy this week? Don't forget, when you're feeling rubbish, think of 3 things that make you smile!
