Christmas is done and Annabelle is back at school and we are well and truly back into the normal run of life.
We had a nice Christmas and I feel really pleased that this was our best year ever receiving gifts that are genuinely useful and long lasting for us as a family. You wouldn’t believe how excited I got over a Pyrex glass oven tray! I normally feel inward sadness when we get silly gifts I know will end up in the bin due to breaking easy or in the charity shop and to not have that feeling was amazing.
One of the best gifts I received was a little “jar of smiles”. I got it back at my works Christmas dinner as my secret santa gift. I started opening the notes on January 1st and have been taking one out each day since.
Normally when it’s dark and I get up tired to start getting annabelle set for school I feel quite grumpy but I have smiled every day when I have pulled a slip out of my jar to read and I can’t think of a better way to start the day now.
So if you feel like you want to start your day on a positive note feel free to check out my instagram as I’ve been sharing the feel good messages with my friends by photographing the note I pull out. We might as well share the smiles!
