1. Back to School! I now have one in college, one in the local comprehensive and one in the last year of infants (yes I still use the old terms, I am only just getting the hang of year 1, 2,3 etc!). They all went back without major drama, in fact, it was my best year yet.
I would like to add, I am not one of these parents that hates being around my children, they will always come first. I am, however, exhausted. My house is a mess, and I deserve some time to myself. There is nothing wrong with that! So don't judge what you don't know.
2. The home makeover. It's gradually coming to a completion, the jobs that couldn't be done, when the boys are home, can now be completed.
3. My step and Save. Since the children have gone back to school, on Tuesday, I have done over 23,000 steps! I'm not going to lie, I am very proud of myself.
So, what are your reasons to be cheerful? I always read, it makes me smile.
