February #TBCSmiles... 54 Months

It's February and Spring is beginning to join us once again. The Crocus are beginning to peep out and the woolly jumpers are beginning their trip to the back of the wardrobe. The sun comes out and so do the smiles....

I've written loads of personal stuff this past week already, so I'll keep this post short and sweet. I wrote a post talking about pressure on children from the education system for Children's Mental Health Week and I wrote a post for Tuesday, our 'Double Cake Day', which would have been Elspeth's birthday - Not 21.

Smiles mean we are winning. They are the reason we carry on, and looking at them reminds us of what we can do. We are not failing.

You are all doing an awesome job and we've had some beautiful smiles as always! Loads of birthdays, Chinese New Year, snow days and lots of adults, which is lovely to see. Anyone can join in, just tag any photo containing a smile, chuckle, grin, giggle or laugh with #TBCSmiles. 

My youngest chose the final selection of big smiles this month and hardly included any grown ups - but if you go to the hashtag on Instagram you can grin along with them all - and there are almost 6000 photos now!

These beauties were shared by the following Instagrammers:

We had our own smiles too - in spite of tummy bugs and the fact my boys mainly just want to pull daft faces this month! That snow day really was awesome though, wasn't it! Sorry if you were in the areas which missed out....

I share 9 of the biggest and boldest smiles here and on Instagram on the 15th of every month.  If you find yourself included in the #TBCSmiles collage by accident and wish not to have your photo included, please feel free to email me and I'll sort it out. Thank you to the people who have shared photos with me privately so that I can smile with you, even if you or someone in the photo don't wish to share them in public. Every smile is precious. 


  1. I do love these posts. You can't help but smile when you look at all those photos x

    1. Every time. I have such a sore face by bedtime every 15th of the month because I spent so long grinning at my laptop :D


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I read every one and try my best to reply!
