Reasons to be cheerful

Another week? No, seriously, it can’t be Friday already can it? Time is galloping at the moment. Before you know it Santa will be popping his big self down the chimney and leaving sopping wet footprints on my nice clean carpet. (Although with the Indian summer we’re now there’s always a chance he might be in a bikini which would not be a pretty sight.) In the meantime here’s my reasons for being cheerful this week.

Parenting Around The Planet. I’ve had such wonderful feedback about my new guest post series from non-UK based bloggers. Totally feeling da lurve (if not the comments yet). If you haven’t read C is for Capetown’s moving perspective on , take a look. It certainly made me stop and think.

Indian Summer. O.M.G. How gorgeous has it been the last couple of days? As I write this the sun is just peering through the mist and it’s already HOT in our kitchen. Long may it continue (although I am rather itching to get into those new jodhpur boots in the cupboard, so not too long eh?).

Grandparents. Nana and Grandpa come to stay overnight this week and the look of joy on DD’s face as she took Nana by the hand and led her to the playroom is enough to put a smile on this Mummy’s face. China, you were fun, but the UK’s where it’s at. Pho real.

Got reasons to be cheerful this week? Pop ’em down and link up over at the lovely Mich’s .
