Reasons to be Cheerful, 10,11,12.

It's that time of the week again! Why not join in?



Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy with a Heart


It's that time of the week again! 3 more reasons to be cheerful.




I lost 3lb this week - which means I was awarded with my 1stone loss certificate! I am so chuffed! 2 more stone to go, but I am one third down the road of my journey.
 

I made a new friend this week and I am so pleased I did. I am sure some of you will know Mum@themadhouse . Well, it would appear we are only a few miles away from each other so I invited her round for lunch and she brought me this wonderful gift! I am looking forward to popping in for coffee and getting to know her. I am sure we will have fun together.



Our neighbours/friends are moving this weekend and John brought me over some very special keepsakes which I am honoured to have. John's mum was a teacher and a keen porcelain painter - he has given me her paints, so I have sent off for a book of instructions and will be putting the paints to a good use. He also gave me her sewing machine - a "singer" again, I was so touched - even more reason to get my sewing skills sorted. I have had an idea of getting together a group of friends and neighbours once a fortnight to learn and share new crafts - should be fun!

All in all a great week!

  9. Well done on the weight loss and I love the sound of the Singer sewing machine - we used to use really old ones when I was in school, real nostalgia

  10. Wonderful stuff :-) The teacup candle cheered me up just by how comforting it looked in a picture.

    Congrats on the three pounds ... I notice the certificate is not, in fact, from Weight Watchers ;)

  18. How lovely to find a fellow blogger living close enough to meet up, and to find you get on when you do.. and the idea of having a fortnightly craft get together sounds great. Did you see the feature in CL magazine then? IS that what sparked the idea?

  19. Congratulations on the weight loss, and the new friend. I wish I had more time to sew. I have 2 sewing machines, but no time. I need to toss a few of those irons out of the fire so I can do things I like to do.
