We received some bad news last night regarding a close and very loved family member, that led to a restless sleep of tossing and turning. This morning I am sitting here with my coffee and I'm staring at the title of my blog post 'Reasons to be Cheerful' and I think to myself that even though I'm still trying to process upsetting news, it is times like this when Michelle's blog hop is especially important to help us remain focused on the positive.
1. I met the lovely Jayne from 'Mums The Word' on Monday, as I collected my BIB award. Jayne is one of my favourite bloggers, and I was so thrilled to discover that she is just as fab as I imagined her to be. My award sits proudly on my fireplace and I smile every time I look at it.
2. I picked my first raspberries from the garden yesterday and they were delicious. I only planted them last autumn so I'm thrilled to see how well they have produced this summer.
3. My eldest Daughter is finishing up her first year of college and I'm so proud of how well she has done. When we first started on our home school journey, we were a little anxious about whether or not it was the right decision. We have been very lucky that her college tutors have been amazing and full of support.We are looking forward to year two.
