#R2BC - Reasons to be cheerful... 1, 2, 3

Here we are again, this week hosted by the fantastic Fay C @ Glass Half Full, be sure to hop across and read & link up. Next week (August 16th) it is my turn to host the #R2BC list for Michelle and I hope to see all of you back here to link up with me  :)

This week has been rather quiet and uneventful, but to be fair I have been that busy recently that that suits me down to the ground. Sometimes you just need a minute to catch your breath.

1. H has moved up another level in swimming and is coming on in leaps and bounds, he is making such fantastic progress and really enjoying his lessons. L is also making excellent progress and is great at backstroke, his teacher is really pleased with how quickly he is coming along. I'm very proud.

2. E is potty trained! She picked it up immediately and has only had a couple of accidents in total since we started, she is so proud of herself and takes herself off to the pot without reminding or needing any help. After fourteen years and five children I am finally over the nappy days! I'm so pleased with how well she has done and how grown up she is, she's a real little star.

3. I had a really enjoyable evening out with my sisters L, J & N to celebrate J's birthday last weekend. We went to Pizza Express and I had the most delicious pizza ever, a Padana - red & caramelised onions, spinach and goat's cheese... AMAZING. We polished off a bottle of Prosecco and had the best time laughing until we cried about memories from our childhood and just having a really good catch up. We're going out again next month for my birthday and I cannot wait.


  1. Well done to E for the potty training. I've decided Isaac isn't ready and think what with baby coming we'll leave it till either later in the year or when he really shows signs of being ready.....or when he is 18 ! Padana is my favourite pizza too as I don't eat cows cheese ! yum ymu !

  2. It sounds like you had a lovely time :)
    Well done on the swimming and potty training x

  3. great news on swimming and brilliant on potty training. I love Pizza Express
