Reasons to be Cheerful

So Autumn is here, my favourite season. I love that it's not too hot, that is still mostly dry, and the stunning colours that it brings.

September means that R2BC is back with the lovely Becky at Lakes Single Mum.

 So here are this weeks:
Reasons to be Cheerful
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.


  1. Yay to the success of returning to school with no drama & to your decorating nearing completion. #R2BC
