Project Happy: Days 641 – 650

Lots of lovely Christmassy happenings in our household over the last couple of weeks.   Here’s what we’ve been up to: Day 641:  My Mum and Stepdad came to visit to give Ella her birthday presents.  I haven’t seen them for ages as they’ve been away on holiday, so it was extra lovely to have some time together 🙂…

Project Happy: Days 631 – 640

I know I say it every time I post but these last ten days seem to have flown by even more quickly than the last few have. We are now officially on the countdown to Christmas and I can’t wait to have some time off with the girls. It’s going to be interesting this year…

Project Happy: Days 621 – 630

We are now a month away from Christmas and I’m really not feeling in the festive spirit at all yet, even though we had our first Christmassy adventure at the weekend (see Day 626 for more about this). December is always a super-busy month with lots of activities going on at the girls’ school, several…

Project Happy: Days 611 – 620

Another ten days has flown by and we now have less than six weeks to go until Christmas. I find the dark, dreary days of Winter difficult, so having something positive and fun to focus on in the near future is definitely a good thing. I’ve bought a few presents, planned a couple of adventures with…

Project Happy: Day 591 – 600

Six hundred days! I had no idea when I started this project that it would turn into this, but I’m so glad that I’ve let it evolve. I love looking back through my old posts and seeing the joyful moments from each day. We’re now in the first half term of the new school year,…

Project Happy: Days 581 – 590

It has been an incredibly challenging week. I’ve had to deal with some very difficult behaviour from one of my daughters, and it’s coincided with an internal wobble of my own about various different things. I’ve spent a lot of time in my head and as a consequence haven’t been connecting with the people I…

Project Happy: Days 561 – 570

Somehow we are almost at the end of September. How did that happen?! It’s now less than three months until Christmas (as my girls gleefully remind me on a daily basis) and the girls have settled back into routine at school. Four weeks until half term! (Not that I’m counting of course…) I still feel…

Project Happy: Days 551 – 560

This post should have gone out on Wednesday. But, you know, life happened. And work and children and school and errands and guests and the first cold of the year for the whole household. So instead it’s going out today. A thoroughly busy ten days which included the annual back-to-school transition. Some days it’s been…
