Reasons To Be Cheerful

Ojos World

I'm a day late with this post but yesterday really wasn't a good day. I seem to have either really, really good day or a really, really bad day at the moment. I seem to wake up in the same mood every day so I never know which way the day is going to go...
Anyway, I'm feeling pretty positive today so thought I would share my reasons why.

Today we are off to Cornwall for the weekend to see my ever lovely friend Hannah. We are going to have a day out together tomorrow with our hubbys and kids. I'm very excited and can't wait to see them all.
I'm also excited that my husband is coming too. It has been absolutely ages since we went away together. He has gone without his lunch break all week so h4e can have the afternoon off without using any more of his holiday. Bless him, he's shattered and has definitely earnt a break away!

I have also signed up to Youve Got Mail penpal swap with CircusMum for the first time (again, thanks to Hannah). I think we find out who our partners are any day so I am very excited about that. It will be great getting to know someone new AND getting snail mail.  I love getting post, there is nothing quite like the sight of a coloured envelope on the mat!

Also this week, my wonderful Dad came over and not only finished painting the bathroom. He also started painting Bigs room  too! The bathroom has been half painted for the last 5 months as I only get time to do a little bit every now and again. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have the job off my list at last! I just have to get on with Bigs room before he comes back from Turkey next Sunday!! Will keep you posted on that one...

  1. So glad you have a lovely weekend to look forward to, it's always good to quality family time together.


  2. Hope you have an awesome time with Hannah and your families xx

  3. Right, I promise you I picked all of the pairs completely by random and didn't choose you because you mentioned me in this post, OR because I too, will be in Cornwall this weekend (talk about fate!) but my goodness, it's like a sign!
    Hope you have an amazing time, maybe we'll all bump into each other!
    Great to get not one, but two rooms painted! I hope Bigs likes it!

  4. Enjoy your time with the lovely Hannah - two very special ladies and like the idea of you spending time together and in a lovely county too. Sounds like the men in your life are pretty good too. Have a wonderful week. I would love a penpal - what a great idea.


Please leave a comment as I would love to know who comes too visit, thanking you muchly!
