A photo a day, every day, of the things that bring me joy.
I know I say it every time I post one of these #projecthappy blogs, but I really don’t know where the time has gone. The last ten days have felt like a bit of a whirlwind – a visit from friends, Sophie staying with us, day trips, rearranging furniture, balancing work with fun and an anniversary thrown in for good measure!
As I post this there are now only two weeks left of the summer holidays (boo!), the leaves on the trees are already beginning to change colour and I feel like I could sleep for a week!
Here are my happy moments from the last ten days…
Day 891: Baking chocolate orange biscuits. I love the light in this photo.
Day 892: A spontaneous walk up The Wrekin in Telford (stopping to climb a few trees on the way)
Day 893: My best friend and her husband came to visit for the weekend so we took them to the Stepping Stones in Cannock Chase for a picnic
Day 894: Sophie is here! A visit to ‘Oatcakes and Milkshakes’ in Stone for a bit of an afternoon treat
Day 895: This one finally lost the wobbly toot that had been clinging on by a thread for days
Day 896: A day trip to The Ice Cream Farm in Cheshire
Day 897: A spur of the moment water balloon fight in the back garden 🙂
Day 898: None of the girls let me read to them any more – even Lola, the littlest, prefers to read to herself at bedtime. But today she sidled up to me, book in hand, and quietly and shyly asked me if I would read to her. I couldn’t contain my delight as I pulled her onto my lap and snuggled her in close to read ‘The Cat in the Hat’.
Day 899: The husband and I’s twelve-years-together anniversary. So we took the girls on a date to see The BFG at the cinema. It was the most utterly wonderful film I’ve watched in a long time and we all thoroughly enjoyed every second of it (photo from my phone)
Day 900: A day of errands. New school shoes purchased without too much trauma (to the shop assistant or me!) plus a bedroom switch around that involved moving multiple items of heavy furniture but has ended up being so very worth the hard work and sweat.
