Last week I missed my Reasons to be Cheerful post as I was featuring guest posts all week and I did really 'miss' it. So without further ado, I am once again linking up with the #R2BC blog hop (this week hosted by Seasider in the City).
This week has been a bit of a tough one, for reasons out of our control and this results in a lot of frustration. But as everyone who knows me, and or reads the blog, when this happens I like to try and channel that negative energy into something more positive. I admit at times it is a struggle, but generally I get there. What has been lovely is that my beautiful network of friends have been really supportive and that has made me feel really thankful for having the group of people around me that I do. It has also pointed out that my husband and I really do have a strong relationship because my, we have been thrown some cr*p over the last 36 months, financially and health wise.
The week long series of guest posts on Appreciating Motherhood received a fantastic response. I really enjoyed hosting the week and getting to know some wonderful bloggers and writers. All the posts were so touching and heartfelt. I felt most honoured to be publishing them on my blog.
Mother Sunday is always a lovely treat in the midst of what seems like the longest winter ever. Although The Hubby wasn't well on Sunday so I didn't get a break from my everyday duties of Motherhood, I didn't have to cook and we spent a pleasant afternoon indulging in cake at my parents house. I received some very sweet trinkets from the children and the most well worded card from The Hubby.
I also received the most fantastic email from one of my best friends. We do not get to see each other as much as we would like as she lives in-a-whole-other-country : Wales. However, my annual visit is next week and not only am I looking forward to a few days change of scenery and routine but my spa day that she bought me for my birthday last year. The email was details of the package and wow, what a package. A day at the Spa with 120 minutes of treatments of my choice. H.E.A.V.E.N. A whole day of relaxing, reading, eating and being pampered. And at this precise point in the year, it couldn't be coming at a better time. I do have to admit, I feel in need of it.
