My Cheerful List #28 Birthday

 

Welcome back to My Cheerful Post. A place to share cheerful moments which have made us smile during the week. In times where it seems impossible, it can be helpful to find something, no matter how small that moment is. Here is week 28

 

Wednesday Treat

This week we paid a visit to a small soft play area the little ones love, in a town close by – Shakees. We’ve visited for a few years now, perfect for very small people.

 

Mum’s Night Out

I went out with a group of new Mum friends this week; I even had an alcoholic drink! Am not a big alcohol drinker these days. It was really lovely to get out, have dinner and a giggle. We’re all very keen to do it again; very soon.

 

Friendship

I do find it hard to find and keep friendship; and question myself on a regular basis, about why I feel so socially awkward. I try really hard. It is such a nice feeling to be building a village of friends, who have children who love each other and as parents we can all make friends too. I was really worried about baby number four starting school; whether I would make friends or fit in. So far, it would seem my worries may have been not needed. I look forward to making lots of memories!

 

A Fifth Birthday

We celebrated one of our girls’ 5th birthday this week, she has been very excited this week. She had to go to school for her actual birthday, but she still had such a lovely time. We were terrified about her birth five years ago. We had fallen pregnant not long after the death of our daughter, leaving 13 months between their births. Here is her birth story. I can’t believe she is five!

She also had a party with her lovely friends from school, they seemed to have had the loveliest of times, and she certainly did and was very spoiled.

 

Snow

Well, as I write this we have a duvet of snow outside; we’ve only just recovered from the last lot. It is not what we want with our plans for the week ahead.

We did go out and play in it for a short while this morning, I think the adults had more fun, as the little ones, cried very loud tears until we returned home.

Here’s hoping for a glorious Summer now! This is what it was like six years ago

Have a lovely week, see you next week.

September Favourites

September Favourites

So I am a few days behind, but as I’ve done them for the past few months, I like to continue.
September saw the children returning to school. New uniforms, new adventures. It’s been lovely. Mini begun her school journey, with only half days during the month of September.

I was nervous about her starting, but she is so far loving it.

We joined Moo Music for a couple of weeks, which baby loved, it was nice to go. But due to my new hours I’ve decided not to continue, I definitely recommend it though.

Carnivals

Carnival season begun here too. As I type we’ve done South Petherton, Frome and Wellington. Coming 1st at Frome and 2nd at Wellington, the troupe are very pleased with that.
They’ve three more to go. Carnivals for me are the first steps to counting down until Christmas, it used to be that I’d always get the children new coats ready for carnival night, as it was so cold, now they barely need a jumper (well of course they don’t as they’re displaying!). Bit if they were watching…

Working Mum

I’ve agreed to extra hours at work, which has led to making arrangements with grandparents to have baby, and placing her into Nursery. That’s only happened very very recently, so only time will tell to whether it’ll work out.
I did have a good cry about her going. But we try and make the most of our days together, usually by having lots of squishes or moments out a day about.

Month ahead.

Writing here has become more frequent too, with a couple of affiliates lined up, I’m looking forward to the month ahead.
Don’t forget to find the posts I’ve written during September,including my cheerful lists, and Christmas talk.

Have a lovely October.
