Can you believe that this is the 26th Reasons to be Cheerful post. Where has this last half a year gone to? It certainly feels as if it has flown by for me.
So my first reason for being cheery today is thinking about all the things we have shared and been glad of in the last half year. Some of you have been so faithful and linked up so many times @CaroleHiedi @SeasiderClare @WendyMcD83 @PaulaHaylock @Cutleryncater @netcurtains and then we have some lovely new joiners in the last few weeks like @HelenatArdvark @FayC and Rambling Pages. Thank you everyone who has ever joined in, you make this linky what it is!
What else am I loving? Well my kids (most of the time). It was sports day at school yesterday and Miss M was overwhelmed with excitement. Daddy and I watched her win both of her races and we watched Miss E come in last on both of hers and they were so true to their little characters with Miss E going all shy and embarrassed. I loved hearing JJ shouting out their names as they ran past! Big brother cheers rock!

I feel as if I should post that Cybermummy is one of my reasons but I have to be honest, it is not. The thing I am most grateful for is reading some of the posts about CM and feeling as if I have had an awakening. What is my blog? Who am I? What do I want this blog to be? Do I want to remain in the rankings or should I withdraw and take away the pressure? I feel a bit down on blogging right now if I am honest, not the people but the industry that parenting blogs are becoming. I am sure there will be more posts to come on this...
Of course I am very grateful to my sponsor Vosene for helping me get to Cybermummy. I intend spending some time tonight going through photos to choose one to enter for their competition. This months theme is Traditions and there is a the chance to win a really interesting prize, take a look. You are just one photo away from winning!
Over to you! Share your #R2BC and I promise to come and read this week. I intend for my weekend to be much more calm and serene.
..and before you go, I must remember to point you over to Maxabella's I'm Grateful for... link up. Join up your reasons post there and make some new Aussie friends. It is live on our Friday.
