Good evening friends. How are you? I hope your week is going well, mine has been a odd one with some horrid downs. Nothing too major, before anyone worries unduly, but you know what it's like when you can't control what is going on around you and it all feels unfair and out of control? Yes, that!
I knew I had to dig deep and do a Reasons to be Cheerful post to remind me of all the wonderful things I have in my life and to let go of the stuff I can't control. I've decided I'll have a proper time away from anything online this weekend, to help me refocus and be in the moment with my family. We have some fab things planned - cinema, a Christmas tree festival and catching up with family and the kids God parents.
Since I last posted for #R2BC, there is loads I am thankful for -
Being in the village panto - I really adored this and I am missing it already. I'll definitely get involved again next year and I am looking forward to our meal together in January. They are a great group of people and it has been wonderful getting to know them all more.
Visiting a local lights display with Miss E - It's always good to have one on one time and Miss E and I braved the cold for a visit to the charity lights display in Westfield. They were lovely and now Miss M wants to visit too!
Watching Live at the Apollo - I'm sat here roaring with laughter at this show as I put together this post. Laughter really is the best medicine.
Our Christmas Tree - Miss E and I also decorated the Christmas tree last weekend. The boys deserted us and then Miss M went to her room to decorate that, so we made the main one in the lounge looks fabulous together!
Being finished with the Christmas Shopping - All the gifts are bought, about half are wrapped and the cards are in process, it's just how I like it. No stress around Christmas, so I can enjoy Advent and focus on my faith. I had to smile that Puss wanted to be a part of it all too!
A stunning Sunrise - I'm not normally up (or it might just be that the curtains aren't open) to see the sunrise but of course it is later in the Winter and that means I saw a beautiful pink sky from the kitchen and had to run upstairs to capture some photos earlier this week. The frost and the sky where stunning and made me smile all day.
And that's it for now, as I'm off to bed to get rid of this headache! Wishing you an amazing weekend and I'll back around as of Monday. Be blessed, Mich x
