First #R2BC of 2012


Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

I’m not sure if anyone else finds January a bit depressing, all the hype of Christmas and New Year has faded, money is tight as the bills come rolling through the letterbox and the weather is mostly crap but fear not, taking part in the #R2BC linky can definitely help you relook at  what matters the most.So here it is, my reasons to be cheerful for the second week in January

1) My fabric order of Storeyboek came from America this week. It’s a gorgeous line of fabric which is going to look fantastic in my bathroom. It came really quick too, only 6 days from Texas,USA to the West Midlands. That’s what I call service.

2) I lost 3lb at weigh in this week, woohoo!  Hoping to lose at least another 3 stone this year which will help me in my quest to become a yummy mummy, oh and get fit along the way!

3) Even though it’s been a tough month moneywise, we’ve been able to shop quite cheaply for seasonal veg and have lovely home cooked stews in the slow cooker. I think I might have even turned a corner with it as the last two meals we have done in it have been fantastic! I’m hoping to use it more next week and try out different meats, haven’t tried a chicken meal yet so that might be on the cards.

4) I won a gift voucher for Abakhan over on the Sewing Directory just before Christmas and I heard back from the store owners today to say I could spend my gift voucher online instead of trekking to the nearest store which is about 40 miles away. I’ve ordered some 4 metres of wadding, 2 metres of cotton solids, 4 metres of interfacing and a vanishing fabric pen. I’m really pleased with the customer service and I’ve heard good things about their products so hopefully the goodies will be great and will help me along the way to getting some of my WIPs complete.
