Reasons To Be Cheerful- Last of 2012

This week has gone very fast. There is still plenty of time before school, ballet and toddler groups re start so when Midge is feeling better I'm sure we'll get in some crafts and walks.

This is the last R2BC of 2012 so let's make it count shall we?

1) We have had a lovely Christmas this year. I haven't felt particularly festive and often have felt like I just wanted to be at home snuggled up but I loved spending time with my neices and nephews and had such a laugh with many family members. When you have family, warmth and a roof over your head its all good isn't it?

2) I received some fabulous gifts this year: a handy carrier for my new sewing machine, Cath Kidston craft book, new perfume, slippers, jumper, hand knitted scarf, craft bits, baking bits and so much more! The children were spoiled by their aunties and uncles and grandparents and love all their gifts. Little Man is looking particularly good in his new onesies, hats and various other clothes!

3) Although both children have been up one after the other with belly ache they both seem ok now which isn't what I was expecting! Still, very happy with this and fingers crossed that's the only bug in our house for a very long time!

4) I have no idea what 2013 holds but it certainly won't be as busy as this year! My parents have their 25th wedding anniversary and I'm looking forward to our 1 year wedding anniversary! Midge will be 5, Little Man 2 and my niece will be 1! We're hoping for a family holiday in the early summer but that's very much in the air right now.

So, overall 2012 has been a great year what with weddings and first birthdays and Midge starting reception which still doesn't seem real! I hope 2013 brings all my readers what they hope for and even in the down times may you see the positive in your lives.
