Reasons to be cheerful...getting through a busy week
Here are my reasons to be cheerful this week:
1) It was Daddy's busiest week of the year. There were some very long days, and lots of hard work but he made it through this week (and so did we!).
2) Having a fab Granny to step in and help out so much (otherwise I may not have coped this week as there were a lot of clashes with the boys clubs / timetables and I could not have managed to be in two places at once without Granny's help). She also helped out a lot last week during our sickness bug - so she really is an amazing Granny!
3) I have had a few lovely competition wins this week that have made me really happy. I know this one will make me sound really 'materialistic' but I really am not, it is more what that represents to me. My 'comping' time in the evenings is my way of escaping from having to home-school and look after the kids all day and it is also my way of contributing to the household as I had to give up working in order to be able to homeschool the boys. So I was really delighted to win a £30 voucher to spend at Big Blue Cuddle from a giveaway at BlogbyBaby as not only do they sell some lovely items but your purchase also goes towards charities that they make a contribution to. It really is a great idea. I also won a months supply of Kelly's ice cream as a runner-up in their pudding recipe competition. I won the party pieces facebook photo competition - which is really nice because I am generally rubbish at taking photos, and I was totally shocked to be one of the winners in the Britmums/Aunt Bessie's recipe challenge.
Would you believe that I had actually tried to make a decision to cut back on competition entries this week and then this happens!
