#R2BC - Reasons to be cheerful... 1, 2, 3
Mummy From The Heart so be sure to look out for that, as well as showing support and visiting the other guest hosts during the holidays.
So what is there to be cheerful for this week? Well...
1. *looks around suspiciously, leans in, whispers*... "They" say the jet stream is moving, and that the rain looks like it is going to start easing off from next week! Summer might possibly be on its way! Don't hold your breath, but have your paddling pools ready just in case...
2. TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY OF TERM!! *dances* no more uniform washes, packed lunches, assemblies, sports days or generally school faffing-aboutness for the next six weeks. AND I managed to get all of the kids school shoes for under £50 after a friend on Facebook posted a fantastic promo code for Brantano (which I tweeted yesterday, for any eagle eyed readers) and I got them all half price, branded items too.
3. My fabulous mister has booked us tickets to go and see The Lion King at the theatre on my 30th birthday. He's whisking me off and treating me to some shopping, a leisurely lunch, dinner and a show, and then a night in a hotel (where we be making the most of it... and SLEEPING, without our bed being invaded and then getting kicked all night) before heading back home Sunday morning. Hopefully we will do something all together as a family to celebrate on the Sunday too though we haven't planned anything yet. He knew how much it meant to me for this birthday to be special as I was pregnant with J on my 18th birthday and had recently given birth to L on my 21st, so this one is all mine and I cannot wait to be spoiled for the day.
