Reasons to be cheerful.... No such thing as bad weather!

Making a change................

I am on a mission at the moment to turn many areas of my life around and change one or two little things a week to overall add up to make a big difference!

The first change on my list is thinking about things differently things happen but its how we react to them that can have a positive or negative effect on our lives. So holding that thought this week I'm joining in with reasons to be cheerful and totally changing my mind on the weather!!

This weekend little E looked out the window and excitedly announced its not raining hurray we can go to the park. I however being an adult was not so convinced as i could hear the wind howling through the trees and our fence looking like it was going to take off. I then looked over at his happy little face and decided i had to find the positive in the weather and agreed with little E.

 Its a perfect day.............. for flying a kite.

 We enjoyed a lovely afternoon  in the park as a family thanks to the lovely windy weather. The wind was so strong little E kept getting pulled along and falling over which made us all laugh.

He also kept letting go of the strings and all three of us had to chase the kite on several occasions which made us all roll around laughing even more.

My husband trying to launch the kite was hilarious it seemed to spend more time on the ground than in the air but this did not spoil our enjoyment at all.

Although we did not get much flight out of our fish kite

 we had a fantastic time and laughed enjoying the lovely weather!

 Just before we left a more traditional kite did make flight

 we really enjoyed watching it for a short time until the rain returned......................

The rain however did not dampen our spirits as there are plenty of  reasons to be cheerful about the rain, like popping on a pair of wellies and jumping around in muddy puddles or snuggling up in the dry and watching a family movie.

That's my reasons to be cheerful just from making a small change to how i think about the weather.
