This week has been pretty full on and I'm thankful for that to be honest. I've realised getting myself out and about has helped me feel better and less miserable.
I've really enjoyed helping with Midge's class this week and hope I can help a lot more next year. The children are wonderful and so full of energy you can't help but smile to watch them chat and play together.
This week, my Reasons To Be Cheerful are:
1) I went to the Eden Project on Wednesday with Midges's class and the other reception group. We played on the ice and even managed to slot in visiting both biomes which was a lot of fun. I do love the Eden Project but I love watching the children having fun and loosing themselves in their surroundings more.
2) My Mum came over on Thursday and helped us to decorate for Christmas. My lounge is all full of tinsel and lights and feels so cosy with the main light off! I'll be blogging about our decorations soon!
Yes she will kill me!
3) My sister is coming back on the 15th and I cannot wait to see her! I have missed her like mad, like I've lost a part of myself to be honest and it'll be so nice to have her around for a bit. The children are looking forward to seeing her and I know she's looking forward to coming home for Christmas too.
Some good reasons to be happy this week I think. For this coming week, we'll be baking some mince pies for our neighbour who is just a lovely man but gets very ill and has rather more than his fair share of bad luck! I'm also taking Midge out to the store at some point to load up a basket of food for the local Food Bank as part of our 'Things To Do This Winter.'
