To enter the giveaway all you need to do is tell us what brightens your day!

    Well at the moment I am preggers and very ill with a Sinus infection, what brightens my day is when hubby calls to say he is coming home early to take over watching the kids !! SLEEP !! But failing that I love it when my eldest comes up to me and says she has to give the baby in my tummy a kiss and a cuddle. It’s so cute and just makes me smile everytime. x

    The highlight of my day, without a doubt, is waking up, opening my work email and not having any new email/panic to deal with! Doesn’t happen often at all, but when it does it’s like a mini-miracle and the rest of my day just bounces!

    Scenes like tonight, home from a trying day to my 8yr son blowing into his French horn (his choice, not mine!), husband coaching him and my 6yr old daughter collaging at the table, oblivious/used to the noise! This makes me ‘big grin’ smile and forget the days troubles (what troubles?). The hugs to follow seal the deal :-) Gorgeous fabric bundle!

    My daughter brightens my day! She is only 18 months old and I just love seeing her learning something new each day. At the moment it is copying mummy cooking on her own little kitchen which I have put up in my kitchen! Last week it was putting her shoes on all by herself. Kids are the best, even when she keeps me up all night because she has chickenpox, just her smile makes everything better.
