The week before last was a tough one for many reasons. Most of those reasons involved expensive things breaking and needing to be replaced. It was also cold and I was stuck inside for most of the week. This week has been the opposite, it’s been a week of new, unbroken things, getting out the house and the weather finally realising that it might in fact be Spring. So here are ten things that made me happy this week: Continue reading “10 Things That Have Made Me Happy This Week 23.03.18”
It’s been a good week overall. My sickness and nausea has almost totally subsided which has left me with a lot more energy to do fun things with Darcie and also to work on my blog and my business in the evenings. I’m not going to do a long ramble of an introduction today as there’s quite a lot to cover in the post anyway. So here are the ten things that have made me happy this week.

Here we are again, another week has passed and so it is time for my weekly round up of things that have made me happy. I love writing these posts so I hope that you enjoy reading them.
1. Making salt dough decorations with Darcie
I tried to do this with her last year and it was nothing short of a total disaster. This year however was a completely different experience. Darcie loved sitting up on the counter and helping me make the dough, she rolled it out with me and loved using the cookie cutters to make different shapes and doing her little hand prints. Every time she put her hand in the dough she concentrated really hard, looked up at me and said ‘good?’ until I told her she was doing a great job, she just melts me! Last year they ended up rising in the oven but this time they have come out perfectly so the next job is just decorating! Continue reading “10 Things That Have Made Me Happy This Week 16.12.17”
I’ve been loving writing these posts and so here is week three, a day late as yesterday I wrote a special post for mine and Dan’s anniversary instead. I would really recommend everyone to reflect back on the week and try to think of things that have made you happy, it really does make you so grateful for what you have in life. I can’t think of much more to waffle on about right now so I’m just going to jump right in.
1. An Autumnal day out at Paultons Park with our Mummy and baby friends. We went on some of the bigger rides that we hadn’t realised we could take the little ones on and Darcie absolutely loved them. She’s such an adrenaline junkie and was saying ‘weeee weeeee’ the whole way around, such a shame it closes the end of this week for the winter! But she’ll be even older to enjoy it even more when it reopens again. Continue reading “10 Things That Have Made Me Happy This Week 22.10.17”
I’ve woken up in such a good mood this morning that I thought a nice thing to do would be to list some of the things that have made me happy this week. It’s been a hectic week but for a lot of good reasons and it’s nice to reflect on some of the really positive things in my life right now. So in no particular order here are ten things that made me happy this week: Continue reading “10 Things That Have Made Me Happy This Week 07.10.17”
Last Saturday we paid a visit to The New Forest Fairy Festival in Burley. We’d taken Darcie last year when she was four months old when she was too young to really appreciate what was going on but the excitement of having a baby girl to take to a fairy festival was too strong for me to resist! This year however she was able to enjoy the day a lot more. As she is now walking, she just loves having space to roam and explore and all the bright colours and music at the festival were an added bonus too. Continue reading “The New Forest Fairy Festival”
You are only nearly nine months old and yet already I have a bittersweet taste of your growing up. You are growing in independence and confidence each day which is so amazing and exactly what I wanted for you but I can’t help but long for the newborn bundle who needed me so strongly. I carried you with me for 9 months and now you sleep in your own room at night. I nursed you for 6 months and now you love to tuck into cheesy spaghetti and juicy tomatoes. Continue reading “Slow Down, Baby Girl”
One of my favourite sayings I have heard since being a Mum is “Happy Mummy Happy Baby”. For the first few months of Darcie’s life I couldn’t quite work this one out, in those first months your babies needs are so high and you are so drained in every way that the priority really is just getting through each day and still be smiling at the end of it. I think in those early days it was hard to imagine being able to ever put myself first again but now 8 months on I am finally finding a balance that works for me.
