10 Good Things March

Here is my monthly round up of everything that has made me happy this month. I'm linking this post up with EmmyMom and also with this weeks Reasons To Be Cheerful host, the lovely Seasider Claire. I know it's a lot of points for the link up but I'm hoping I can get away with it just once a month!

1) The first thing I have to mention is of course our Snowdon climb. This climb took place at the very beginning of March so had to come first really didn't it? I'm still incredibly proud of climbing right to the very top of Snowdon and raising so much money for Comic Relief with a wonderful group of people.

2) Midge had a fantastic parents evening this month with nothing but praise. She's really coming on with her reading after a slow start. Although there is still work to be done there her teacher reckons that come September when she'll be moving up to year 1 she'll be completely ready and it shouldn't phase her at all. Having your daughter being called a really caring, friendly member of the class is a lovely feeling. I'm very proud.

3) I sent out March's care package to someone who really needed a smile this month. I'll be doing my post shortly so please look out for it. It's only month 3 and it's getting harder but I'm getting so much out of my monthly gift giving I can't wait to continue.

4) Last night Husband stayed behind at work until 2am to learn some new 'stuff' in the work place. I was kind of dreading it to be honest because I'm not used to not having him around. He's in bed having a lay in and the children are happy this morning which is great. They were not too bad last night either so I'm also on good form!

5) Midge had her Easter bonnet parade yesterday. I didn't go because Hubby hardly ever gets to see her do anything school related so I gave him my ticket and told him to go. He really enjoyed it and Midge did too. She's gutted she didn't win but her bonnet was very cute. Some of the bonnets were just insane! I didn't realise how much competition there was amongst parents and these blooming parades!!

6) It's Easter weekend! I have an absolutely delicious Easter egg sat in the cupboard calling my name but I can resist until Sunday I promise! I'm really pleased at least Sainsburys has been decent enough to sell a good variety of free from eggs otherwise I wouldn't be enjoying this either!

7) I helped out on Tuesday with the school trip to a beautiful garden in Penzance. The children had a lovely time walking about and it really was the most stunning garden I've seen in a long time. I love helping out on school trips. So far I've been to the Eden Project for some ice skating with the children too. I hope they do some trips in Year 1!

One of the activities I had to do with my group.
8) Little A has been speaking more, yey! He's saying 'Night night', 'love you,' and even 'thank-you,' which is so sweet it melts my heart every time. He's growing up incredibly fast. I'm trying to do more things with him now such as sensory dishes and crafts but he's really taken to drawing on my walls at the moment so I'm not feeling the enthusiasm!!

9) I finally met up with a fellow mum I made friends with last year but because she was very shy then fell pregnant with what turned out to be a difficult pregnancy we didn't have any contact just before Christmas until now. Out of the blue she text me and we met up after the school morning drop off to have a few hours at her house. We totally reconnected and I got some lovely 13 day old baby cuddles. Best thing ever!

10) I'm really enjoying my blog again. I've stopped looking at all the stats which can make you feel a bit rubbish when only a few people have read a post on your blog. I have reminded myself that this is a hobby which i love and a memory making journey for my children. I'm planning on taking part in the April A-Z challenge which will see me blogging everyday. Keep with me though! A big thank-you to my ever loyal readers, I heart you very much!
