Once again I am joining in with what has become one of my favourite posts to do, Mummy from the Heart's Reasons to be Cheerful. This week because Mummy from the Heart has been away in Belarus helping with Operation Christmas Child, Pressies by Pebbles is hosting the R2BC blog hop.
So here are my reasons for feeling cheerful this week - I am (finally) starting to feel a bit Christmassy.
1. We had an amazing day yesterday with the home-ed friends with ASD with a lovely little Christmas party for the Children. It was just perfect as it wasn't too big or too noisy for the children to cope and it was lovely to catch up with some friends.

2. Then it was off to a Christmas party for grown-ups! Our wonderful friends who treat us to the biggest and tastiest Christmas feast you could possibly imagine at our annual Christmas party for our sort of 'home-group' (Even though none of us are at the same church anymore - we love the fact that it is just a group of friends who meet up each month and are really there for us when we need them - can't believe we have been doing this for about 6 years now). It has become a bit of a tradition to do a 'murder mystery' theme at Christmas and this year was "Wildwest". It was a fantastic evening - and we feel SO blessed to have such a wonderful group of friends.

3. We finally managed to set up a blog for Daniel and his 'cheffing' (as he calls it). It is most probably the most unusual Christmas present a 6 year old has ever received and it is going to be crazy finding the time to update it - but he has already been cooking several more things in the kitchen that he wants to put on his blog - so we will need to somehow find a way of adding it to the things we are already juggling in our lives as we know how important it is to him and it is something we have been meaning to do for a while for him. His blog can be found at www.TheBrilliantChef.co.uk.
So what are your reasons to be cheerful this week?
