Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 61-70

The first half of May has been so very lovely.  It’s been gorgeously warm and sunny, there was a bank holiday weekend so I got a bonus day with my girls and it’s been my birthday! As a result there have been lots of joyful moments and once again I’m so thankful that I began…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 51-60

It’s been a busy ten days full of the usual sports events, school and work routine, plus the slightly more unusual occurrences of late night theatre performances, being interviewed and saying yes to meeting up with online friends in real life.  Those were happy moment highlights of course, but sometimes the most ordinary of moments…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 41-50

The first week back at work and school after a trip can sometimes be a bit tough, and our days have certainly been packed with various appointments and activities since we launched back into it all after our family holiday in Bude.  We’re all tired already!  The sunshine putting in an appearance made such a…

It feels like a long time since my last Project Happy post – we’ve been away on holiday to our favourite place in Cornwall and come home again since then! It’s been a really lovely second half of the Easter holidays and exactly what we all needed – fresh air, lots of walks by the…

April.  The start of the Easter holidays.  A much needed break from normal routine.  The weather has been rubbish but we’ve made the most of the pockets of dry in between the relentless rain, filling our days with simple and quiet things.  Everyone is tired.  I’m simultaneously craving adventures outdoors and downtime indoors.  It seems…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 11-20

These last two weeks have felt weirdly never-ending, like the Easter holidays aren’t actually getting any closer.  We’re looking forward to two weeks of fun together and keeping everything crossed that the weather plays nicely so we can get outdoors as much as possible in between having time at home with friends round. There has…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 1-10

This post marks the start of a brand new year of Project Happy.  I still can’t quite believe that I’m about to embark on my fifth consecutive year of a 365 project.  I have absolutely no intention of stopping whatsoever – it’s become as familiar to me as breathing.  I love looking back at random…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 351-365

Somehow I’ve reached the end of another full year of Project Happy.  It still amazes me that I’ve committed to this project for such a long time.  For something that began it’s existence as a humble ‘100 days of happy’ project in the lead up/countdown to my husband and I’s wedding day four years ago,…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 341-350

We’re halfway through February and half term is upon us. We’re all ready for a break even though it feels like the girls haven’t been back at school for very long. It’s quite astonishing how quickly the time goes when your life is divided into intense six-week blocks. The weather has been all over the…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 331-340

We’re on the last stretch of winter and spring is finally on the horizon – hooray!  There’s just February to get through first – my least favourite month of the year as it’s the anniversary of losing my Dad, the funeral and his birthday. This month more than any other this little project of mine…
