Reasons to be Cheerful #36

Isn’t it amazing that we’re into the last two weeks of 2013 already?!  With the festivities just around the corner I have lots of things making me smile this week.

School Holidays

Youngest Son finished school this afternoon, he really needs the break now, and it’s been a long four months since the beginning of term. More importantly, I like having my boys around.

Parcels and Messages.

We’re getting little treats everyday in the form of cards, messages or parcels form our dear family and friends in England It makes me smile to know we are in their thoughts this Christmas despite being so far away and the deliveries of Cadbury chocolate is such a treat and has added to the decorations on my Christmas tree this year!

Lots to do

We’re busy, busy, busy with plans for dinner with friends and also with family and even plans for a few days away in the not too distant future to look forward to. :-D

Sunny, Snowy Days

It’s been beyond freezing of late; wind chills have been in excess of -20C on occasion.  The positive thing about this is not only the snow, making things feel very Christmassy but also the winter wonderland outside the front door has been absolutely beautiful to photograph. Here is a small selection of my snaps this week;




So what is making you cheerful this week?

    I saw your cadburys tree chocolates in your post, a couple of days ago. Shocked you can’t get them! It would make cheerful having them!

    Hope you have an amazing Christmas, lots of love and hugs xxx

    Ooh, stunning! You are such a great photographer! I think one of the things I would find really hard living in a non-UK place (all of the overseas places we’ve lived have been UK dependants!) would be the difficulty in accessing real Cadburys! I remember buying something that said it was Cadburys Dairy Milk in the States and discovering on eating it that it was actually made by Hersheys! Yuck! I was very disappointed.
