Here are my reasons for being cheerful this week -
* Spring has sprung and that makes me feel so happy. It was a joy walking the kids to school this morning and looking at the glorious cherry blossom on the trees. A trip to the park, washing on the line, a spot of gardening this afternoon and some sand play for the kids all make a very happy Mich.

|Look at that sunshine!|
* Look at this picture, who would not be happy with this little delivery? have I been tempted? well yes and I have given in to that temptation just a bit. Back on the band wagon today and not eating on my emotions. Dh will be polishing off this little lot for me. Have you tried Divine chocolate before? it really is the business (far superior to Green & Blacks in my opinion) and of course the part I also really like is that all their varieties are fairtrade and thus my enjoyment is not at anyone else's expense - perfect! I always purchase mine at Oxfam. At the moment Divine are running an award as well for the most divine woman. The winner will receive a bespoke piece of jewellery worth £1000, go and take a look.
* In just a few short weeks my family will be heading off to Butlins for the Spring Harvest Christian festival. This is one of the highlights of my year and we have such an amazing time together and with God. To say I am getting excited for this is an understatement.
* I am lastly so thankful that my hubbie is happy at work at the moment. He is the sort of guy who never seems to happy with this job. His own work ethic is very strong and his expectations of himself are high and thus can create an atmosphere that is not the most joyful for him, but after a restructure and taking on some new staff his more mundane responsibilities have been passed on and he is really enjoying work. This is a massive thing to me.
So what about you? What is making you smile this week? Any gratitude you fancy sharing with us all, don't be shy....
