    Friday Fab 5's: 30th December 2016

    Here is is peeps, the final Fab 5 of the year. So what has made you smile this week?

    The rules are as always:

    Try to aim for 5 if you can but don't worry if less, each one is a bonus and if you have more then great.

    No negativity allowed.


    Here are mine to get you started:

    Speaking to my very excited boys on Christmas Morning
    Yummy Christmas Dinner at my sister's house
    Amazing support from all you guys and gals here on the forum
    Finally renewing the back up battery in my smoke alarm. No more chirping
    Meeting a new friend


    So lets see what you've got....

    1. All the support from everyone here. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.
    2. Christmas dinner cooked by hubby. It tastes ten times better when you don't have to cook it yourself.
    3. The sales that are on in Tuam. It's nice to stay home and support the locals.
    4. My new phone arrived in the post this morning. Hurray for new technology.
    5. Spending time with Aisling. She is growing into a great friend.
    6. 2017 knocking on the door. I hope it's a little bit easier than 2016.

    - my beautiful family
    - being reminded how precious life is and how important it is to cherish every moment
    - my friends here who refuse to let me retreat when things are tough
    - our fearless leader writing something that made me cry happy tears

    ~ My wonderful husband helping me create and send a package to each of the crew both here and on the FB page to hopefully create some smiles (and apparently tears)
    ~ Jarre saying yes!
    ~ Spending time with my babies
    ~ My babies loving their presents
    ~ Listening to my babies jamming - Electric guitar, sax and singing.. It's been fantastic!
    ~ As always, my amazing team and the fantastic members here and on the FB page.
    ~ My beautiful present from Marc and my littler people - a charm bracelet with charms they each chose. So pretty and personal.
