Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 121-130

We are so close to the end of the school year now and our calendar is full to busting with end of term events and activities – there has been literally at least one thing every single day this last week.  It’s fun, but the girls are exhausted and we’re all looking forward to a…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 111-120

The glorious weather seems to be continuing and I’m keeping everything crossed that it’s going to last until at least October. I’ve had my head down working, the girls have had a jam-packed schedule at school, and we’ve barely seen the husband in between his work shifts and his ‘need’ to watch every match in…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 101-110

It’s been an emotional rollercoaster of a week this week, with all the girls needing some extra TLC and cuddles. As exhausting as it can sometimes feel to have to navigate it all, I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m grateful that they can talk to me about the things that are troubling…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 91-100

The days are disappearing fast at the moment and life is full-on. Our calendars are booked solidly until August when they suddenly become blissfully empty and I’m counting down the days until the summer holidays whilst simultaneously trying to savour every last moment of Ella being at primary school. It’s going to be a season…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 81-90

A VERY late edition of Project Happy. Half term was such a whirlwind that I wasn’t on my laptop very much and once we got home from our mini road-trip and the girls went back to school I had a ridiculous amount of work to catch up on plus lots of new work coming in. …

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…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 31-40

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…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 21-30

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…
