It's my Birthday - Reasons to be Cheerful #R2BC

Happy Thursday friends. Reasons to be Cheerful is over with Becky at Lakes Single Mum for August and will be back with me in September.

I'm away in Norfolk with my family at the moment staying in a lovely little cottage in Little Snoring. We booked via AirBnB and it was our first time but certainly won't be our last as it has been wonderful.

The owner has chicken, ducks, cats, sheep and Shetland Ponies in her grounds and my kids have been able to feed them, pet them and we have enjoyed fresh hen eggs too. Miss M has been in her absolute element, being around animals is her idea of heaven and I admit it has been magical. We head home today and I'm expecting some tears.

I came down on the morning of my birthday to find the cottage had been decorated with banners and balloons and I had a little tea party in the afternoon. I was also super impressed that Miss M and my husband managed to cook me a coffee cake when they didn't have any baking tins, weighing scales or other proper equipment!

We headed over to the Bickling Estate, a massive National Trust property and had a lovely day there on my birthday.

We had excellent fish and chips in Wells-Next-The-Sea and loved playing the penny arcades too. The kids all came away with lots of won trinkets and we had ice creams as well, won from the machines!

Then yesterday we explored the town of Cromer and it was heaving as we had arrived during carnival week!

All in all it has been a great week and I've also managed to apply for two jobs, so we will see where those applications go! Somewhere I hope as I am up for a new challenge when the kids go back to school.

Have a fab weekend and week ahead, Mich x
