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…

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…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 271-280

I feel like I’ve rediscovered my positivity a bit this week, after what seems like a long time of feeling very flat and down. Nothing like birthday celebrations and a bit of snow to boost the spirits hey? December is always a ridiculously busy time of year and I’m deliberately keeping it relatively low key this season – it…

Project Happy {Year 4}: Days 261-270

And just like that, November was over in a blink.  It’s been an odd month with a real mix of emotions.  I’ve not really felt like picking up my camera very much at all this last week which is very unlike me.  I’ve just been feeling a bit down and so for the first time ever…
