Hi guys, Happy Thursdays!
Wow, the end of another week is fast approaching.
So this week, browsing through my blog reads, I came across a new linky. A linky I knew I definitely liked the sound of. A linky I knew I wanted to join in and take part with.

As most people know, I love reasons to write blog posts based on happiness, so this linky is right up my straight. I've spent way to long in a spiral of depression, it's time to get lots of cheerful posts on the go, something to spread some cheer, and happiness!
(ok, that sounded an awful lot like a quote from Elf - I promise i'm not christmas obsessed - yet)
So - here goes! My reasons to be cheerful this week.
1. 𝓜𝓻𝓼 𝓗𝓲𝓷𝓬𝓱
Being brainwashed by someone doesn't sound like a reason to be very cheerful or even grateful does it? It sounds horrific.
But no, honestly, this particular brainwashing, I am ecstatic with.
Recently I got introduced to Mrs Hinch on Instagram - you can follow her here
She shares instagram posts and stories about cleaning. Sharing life hacks, tips, must have cleaning supplies, and cleaning hauls.
Now - as a mum, I had to have a clean house - raising kids you have to keep up with the housework. But never to the extents that Mrs Hinch has shown me. She has shared some life changing life hacks on her insta page that I am eternally grateful for, and such simple little tricks they are to.
I have definitely been hinched, and I am loving it. To be honest, so is L-A - she was been having so much fun, wiping down the kitchen cupboard doors when we're putting our kitchen to bed.
2. 𝓐 𝓵𝓲𝓽𝓽𝓵𝓮 𝓫𝓸𝔂 𝓘 𝓵𝓸𝓿𝓮:
Whilst doing our weekly clean up this week, I came across a little outfit my favourite little boy left at my house when he was visiting. I haven't seen that boy in almost two weeks, and to be honest, I probably won't be having him over for a visit anytime soon or in the near future, which in a way is heartbreaking, BUT - I have grieved that already, and now? Well now, I am just happy, grateful and cheerful about the fact, I was able to spend time with him for a few weeks - I appreciate the fact that his Mummy did trust me to look after him. And I may not get to see him now as much as I'd like, but I will always love him, and always be forever cheerful knowing he was and always will be a huge part of my life.
This week L-A sold her go-kart as she outgrew it and it was less than a year old. She received £60 for it, so she went into town, and treated herself to some new Autumn clothes, and a new series LOL doll - the Underwraps, Eye Spy, Series 4 - then, with the money she had left, this little girl of only four years of age, bought her sister some new Heelys and an LOL doll also and some Unicorn false nails from Primark. No-one asked her to do this, out of the kindess of her own heart, L-A didn't want to use all of her own money on herself, but wanted to share it with her big sister.
This made me burst with pride, and made me realise, I must be doing something right, to have raised such a kind hearted little girl.
