Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 301-310

The start of 2019… a brand new year; birthday celebrations and back to school all in the space of a week! We’ve settled into our regular routine of early mornings, school runs, homework, activity clubs and work; everyone is tired already and I’ve started daydreaming about our travel plans for the year.  I’m not a…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 291-300

A festive edition of #projecthappy!  We’ve had the most wonderful first half of the Christmas holidays.  It’s been tiring and busy in the very best of ways and my heart is full.  Plus we still have a whole week left to go! And now we find ourselves almost at the end of 2018 and preparing…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 281-290

We’ve finally finished school for the Christmas holidays and we are all SO ready for this break – it’s felt like a long term and the girls are exhausted. It’s been a lovely couple of weeks full of festive fun (in between school and work) and we’ve got even more to come.  I can’t wait…

I’m still behind.  And still determinedly working to catch up whilst giving myself grace that this busy season of life is really quite ridiculous and that I don’t need to do it all. As we creep through December I’m beginning to feel more festive and we’re all looking forward to the Christmas holidays and two…

I am waaaaaay behind on sharing these #projecthappy updates, though I have still been capturing the moments as the days have sped past.  We’re entering into the crazy-busy season of multiple birthdays and Christmas; my therapy work ramping up in intensity in advance of the holidays; and all the school commitments to squeeze in too. …

Half term and the first week back at school seems to have flown by – I can’t believe we’re already a third of the way through November.  It feels like we’re hurtling towards Christmas at full speed ahead and these next few weeks are so busy that I have a feeling it’s going to be…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 231-240

Gosh it has felt like a long old start to the school year.  Seven and a half weeks of adjusting to our new routine and we’ve finally made it to the much-needed half term break.  We’re keeping it slow and enjoying our Autumn traditions which, after the busy-ness of school life in recent weeks, I…

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 221-230

I’m going to admit that I struggled this week. Everyone is tired, there is a lot of bickering and stomping around the house going on, and none of us can wait for half term to arrive. Finding tiny pockets of joy in the everyday juggle felt hard. But, I did it. And that’s what matters.

Project Happy {Year 5}: Days 211-220

The weeks seem to be flying by at the moment.  Someone told me the other day that it’s only about ten weeks until Christmas and I just can’t wrap my head around that.  We’ve only just had summer! It’s been busy as usual – school and work and life.  Decision-making and family stuff and never…
