Reasons to be Cheerful - Feeding Giraffes, Time with my Mum & Being over 40!

Happy Thursday friends.

Can you believe it is September already? This year seems to be whizzing by in a flash and I'd quite like it to slow down really! The weather also seems to have moved into Autumn and I am thinking of packing my summer clothes away.

My parents and Aunt have been to stay with us for nearly a week and it has been good to have them here. They've been babysitters for us so we could have a night away to Port Lympne Reserve and also visit the cinema to see The Shack. My kids really love their grandparents so it is always special for them all to spend time together. I love that JJ chose to spend the day with them when he had an extra inset day off school. Many near 14 year old's would just stay home instead!

Here is my hubby and I getting settled into our home for the night last Friday. Giraffe Lodge was an amazing experience and one we were so lucky to enjoy. I love how happy my husband looks in this photo.


This is one of the reasons we were at Port Lympne. If you ever get a chance to feed the giraffes then do, they are super strong though, so watch out!


My Mum, Aunt and I enjoyed a day at National Trust Chartwell, the former home of Sir Winston Churchill yesterday. It was lovely to have some girl time together and we also enjoyed some fabulous food. My lovely Dad looked after the kids after school too.


And I woke up to this super Instagram post yesterday. It was very nice to see these lovely comments about me from some awesome ladies.
