This Week’s Happy #R2BC and #WOTW 

By | April 9, 2015

There can only be one word or image to sum up this week:

  

It’s SMILE, big happy smiles, big smiles that follow on from laughter.  It’s been (on the whole) a good one and here’s why (the R2BC bit):

1.  The children are on their Easter holiday – yay! No school runs, much reduced angst for D and a chance for them to just relax.

2.  The weather has been lovely, the pool is in the garden, sometimes they’ll splash with hundreds of playballs, sometimes it’s just a mega splash-fest but it’s all accompanied with smiles.

3.  Speaking of smiles, that’s something I’ve been doing and about time too!

4.  And it’s my birthday today, I’ve had a lovely day (if you discount the washing, the hoovering and the need for routine) eg.  “it’s your birthday Mumma…I’m hungry…when’s lunch?”.

I don’t think calories consumed on your birthday should count! Lovely birthday cake, a nice dinner and some Cadbury buttons during “Resurrection” and “Forever” later – fab!

It was also my father-in-law’s birthday on Monday so my Word for the Week could have quite possibly been “cake”!  He was on very good form and considering it would have been my mother-in-law’s birthday next week (April is a birthday-busy time), he’s doing really quite well.  He loved his presents – an usual magnolia tree for the garden and a personalised jigsaw puzzle of T and D.  All very appropriate for him as he’s a keen gardener and puzzler.

Today I had a lovely pair of earrings from Hubbie: 

 

Which go very nicely with the necklace he got me for Christmas, I’m a lucky J:

  

I can’t lie and say that at times I’ve thought “oh, how can you watch the same Minecraft video over and over” or “please show each other some empathy” but that’s life, that’s how we roll here and it’s not going to affect the happy, smiley week we’ve had.

As well you know, I can empathise with your situation, even though our children can’t! Your smile is beautiful, and I’m gutted I missed your birthday xxx
