365 Days of Happy: Days 361 – 370

I did it! A whole year of happy moments captured in photos and documented on my blog.  I wasn’t sure if I could keep up the commitment (I’m a serial project-starter-and-non-finisher), but I have – for 365 days. In the grand scheme of things I recognise that it’s a relatively un-life-changing project on a global scale,…

365 Days of Happy: Days 351 – 360

Half term and the lead up to my Dad’s funeral form the foundations of this #365happydays post. I have had such contrasting emotions over the last ten days – I thought I would have to dig really deep to find the happy moments.  Some were a little harder to find than others and some appeared right…

The latest instalment of my #365happydays project. This has been the most difficult one yet.  In the evening of day 338 I got a phone call and just a few short hours later, in the early hours on Day 339 my world collapsed and I spiralled into complete shock and total devastation.  In all honesty I’m still…

365 Days of Happy: Days 321-330

This has been a tough ten days for many reasons, some of which I’m not ready to talk about yet.  Actively seeking out moments of happiness in the midst of it all has been the thing that’s kept me going when I’ve wanted to hide under the duvet and give up.  Here are the things…

Happy New Year and welcome to the first #365happydays project post of 2015! In complete honesty, I always feel a little bit flat in New Year after our month of birthday, Christmas and New Year celebrations comes to a close and it’s time for the girls to go back to school and our normal routine to…

365 Days of Happy Days 281-290

This instalment of my #365happydays project is being posted a few days late due to having had a very busy weekend full of birthdays, good friends and mini-Christmases 🙂 In all honesty, it’s been a strange ten days.  Lots of days (especially this weekend) where there have been so many happy moments that it has been difficult to…
