Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 181-190

The start of September is always a transition period.  The change of season from Summer to Autumn, the shift from having the girls with me 24/7 to them being back at school, and the distinct change in myself as I move between all the different roles I occupy, trying to keep track of everything I…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 171-180

The end of the summer holidays is upon us. The next #projecthappy post will be once the girls are all back at school and we’re firmly settled back into the routine of school runs, after school clubs and homework.  It’s been a lovely final burst of adventures and as I look back through all the…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 161-170

And just like that we’re over two thirds of the way through the summer holidays, with less than two weeks left before the girls go back to school.  I really don’t want them to go back.  I know I keep saying it but I honestly don’t know where the time is going.  2017 seems to…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 151-160

We are officially halfway through the summer holidays and I have to say I’m thoroughly enjoying being able to spend some proper quality time with my girls.  We’ve had some lovely slow days together – just pottering around at home, reading, and popping into town to run a few errands.  I’ve been managing to get a…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 141-150

Well, that’s Week One of the six week break done and dusted already.  It’s felt quite laid back as we’ve had lots of downtime at home in between the bursts of busy-ness and activity, and, even though I normally find it tough staying in, it’s actually been really lovely (if you choose to ignore the bickering…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 131-140

This final week of the summer term has been a tough one. The girls are exhausted, I’m exhausted, there has been bickering galore and we have quite literally been counting down the days until school finishes so we can enjoy slower mornings and fun-filled afternoons over the summer holidays. As such, we’ve not really been…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 121-130

Oops, late again! Working two full time jobs and raising a family has a way of making time disappear without you realising. The days are full from the moment I wake up at 5.30am every morning to the minute my head touches the pillow late at night and I’m counting down the days until the…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 111-120

A rather late edition of #projecthappy from me this week.  I’m normally pretty good at sticking to my schedule and posting every ten days, but sometimes life just gets in the way and last week was yet another example of that.  It seems like we’ve had a lot of reminders recently.  I’m learning to roll with…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 101-110

What a strange week it’s been. So much has happened in such a short space of time. So much, in fact, that I wrote this blog post about it just to get it all out of my head in order to begin to process it all. As usual it’s been this little project that has helped…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 91-100

Another whirlwind ten days has passed and with all the awful things going on in the world it’s becoming more important than ever to seek out the moments of joy and light wherever we can.  It doesn’t matter whether it’s something as simple as a bunch of flowers or something more memory-making like a day…
