Project Happy {Year 6}: Days 31-40

The start of April and the lead up to the Easter holidays was ridiculously busy with both school and work and my brain was so full that I had no headspace to do anything other than get through each day.  I switched off as much as I could during our annual trip to Cornwall and…

Project Happy {Year 6}: Days 21-30

It has been an absolutely mad few weeks.  A flying visit to Spain for my Grannie’s funeral; a nasty tummy bug that flattened both Mimi and the husband for several days; ongoing issues with the kitchen repair/refurbishment following the fire seven weeks ago; the logistics of managing multiple after school club/sports/rehearsal commitments; plus a crazy…

Project Happy {Year 6}: Days 11-20

A weird week full of illness and sad news and big decisions and trying to keep up with crazy school and sport and work schedules.  A very ordinary collection of photographs but capturing each one really has helped me survive these last few days.  Sometimes it’s the little things that matter the most.

I honestly never thought I’d…

January has morphed into February, the promise of Spring is just around the corner and things are changing.  I can feel it.  Spectacular skies have been a welcome regular occurrence though day to day we’ve really just been keeping our heads down and quietly getting on with life. These images show that there is still…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 321-330

Truthfully?  I’m finding the lack of outdoor adventures these last couple of months particularly hard.  Being outside, even when it’s freezing cold and I can’t feel my fingers or toes or face, is absolutely vital for my mental wellbeing.  It feels like such a waste of time staying inside when we could be out making…
