I do really enjoy reading other people's Reasons to be cheerful so I thought I'd occassionally pop a few of my own on here.
#1 How fantastic, I did have to make an early dash back home on Friday and woke up to this on Saturday. It wasn't actually quite as thick as the photos make it look and it was melting fast by lunchtime, but the boys were totally thrilled. Little A's got a bad cough and cold though so he couldn't go with Daddy and B on the sledging trip poor thing.
#2 Inside these beauties make me smile everytime I go into the dining room. They have such a heavenly scent don't they - and if you look hard you can just see my mum (in an enourmous hat at my sister's wedding), peeping through the foliage!
#3 A visit to the collectors' market turned up another treasure, one I've been looking ages for - a vintage bevelled mirror - for £5! Joy! (And again, someone else getting in on the shot!)
#4 My scrapbooks. Mostly filled with home and garden pictures from Country Living, they never fail to cheer me up and inspire.
#5 The biggest reason of all (even with the chocolate smudged faces!)
Have a smashing start to the week. I promise to catch up with everyone soon!
