So it was perfect timing when I discovered that my blogging friend Nicola from Simply Homemade had launched a February Photo A Day Challenge: it's not too late to join in either, and you can find my photos over on my Instagram. Here's a sample of what I've posted so far.
And here's two more reasons to be cheerful:
Finding a group of mums whose school mornings are exactly like mine. Thank you Facebook. It may not change anything, but the reminder that I'm not alone is very comforting.
A New Mop
I'm really bad at buying stuff - my parents had a war mentality that they passed down to me: make do and mend before buying. Actually I think it's a good idea, but sometimes I take it too far, like when I'm trying to wash the kitchen floor with a mop head that has a severe case of alopecia. Buying a new one has halved the time it takes to do the job...
Hope you had a good week too.
