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…

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…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 321-330

The end of January is in sight, it’s light until 4.30pm now and Spring is just a month away.  It’s been a busy couple of weekends and that has helped what usually feels like the longest month pass by a little quicker than usual.  I’m not normally one to wish the time away but I…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 311-320

It’s been a slow but quietly productive start to the year.  My 2018 intention of ‘taking action’ is fresh in my mind and I’m getting things done, spending my days methodically ticking things off my to-do list.  It feels good.  As a result there are no spectacular photographs to share, just ordinary moments of beauty…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 301-310

This installment of #projecthappy covers the end of one year and celebrates the start of a brand new one in the form of 2018. In reality they’re just man-made numbers and dates which, in the grand scheme of things, don’t really mean anything.  And yet we as humans have a habit of making this transition…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 291-300

A Christmas edition of #projecthappy!  I can’t quite believe we’re at the end of 2017 already.   These last couple of months since we got home from Florida seem to have zoomed by.  As ever, this project makes me slow down and appreciate the moments that would otherwise pass by in a haze, especially at…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 281-290

The last couple of weeks has been full-on with school activities, Christmas preparations, snow days and trying to get the last mountain of my work done, all whilst we all crawled towards the end of term. Somehow though it hasn’t felt particularly busy and I’m grateful for that. The unexpected snow brought lots of moments…
