#R2BC - Reasons to be cheerful... 1, 2, 3
Michelle as she enjoys her summer break. Next week the link will be hosted by the lovely Becky at Lakes Single Mum.
It has been a busy week (when isn't it?!) and we are SO excited about our visit to Paultons Park & Peppa Pig World this weekend to celebrate L's birthday on Sunday (and belatedly, E's birthday). The weather is so far looking good and we hope it will be a great family day out.
1. This week the Mister and I were lucky enough to manage a trip to the cinema together. The Mister chose The Dark Knight Rises and we got a free popcorn using my O2 Priority Moments app on my phone (those on O2 should definitely download this app to enjoy money off and freebies!) to go with our drink & munchies.
It was a good movie, I really enjoyed it but it was very long and I had a seriously numb backside going on by the time the credits rolled. We had a really nice evening out together.
2. We have also enjoyed a family trip to the cinema, when we went to watch The Lorax. It was E's first time at the cinema and she did great, she very much enjoyed stuffing in the popcorn and watching the bright colours on the screen. The musical numbers were brilliant, I wrote a personal review of The Lorax, I would definitely recommend it. We're hoping to go and see Disney's Brave before the end of the summer too.
3. We are just about ready for 'back to school' now, only a couple of things left to get before we are all set. Before I know it, it will be time to send them back off to start the new school year, with A beginning her GCSEs in year 10 and J starting secondary school in year 7. Lots of new challenges to await them both, as well as L & H in years 5 and 2 respectively. I am also going to be enjoying this final year with E at home with me before she begins nursery next year. I know it is a cliché but I honestly don't know where the time goes, I can't believe half the summer has passed already. Fingers crossed for some decent stretches of good weather before the end of it!
Thanks again to Michelle for inviting me to host her linky this week, please be sure to visit those who have linked up and share some comment love. Have a great weekend everyone.
