Happy List #6

Happy List #6

I missed my happy list last week as we had a little week away and it was actually quite nice to have a mini blogging break. The last few weeks have been a little tough and overwhelming but I woke up on Monday with a different mindset and I do feel so much better for it. Here is my happy list for the week:

  • A little trip away, we had some family commitments this week in the South East so we decided to make a little trip of it and swing by Butlin’s in Bognor Regis. Although as soon as we got here Meme was a little under the weather which, let’s face it, is typical. It has still been lovely to have a change of scenery and some family time though.
  • I celebrated a a whole year of blogging! I am usually such a quitter so I am really proud of myself. There is so much I would like to do with my blog, so many ideas. However, time is always an issue and, with our new arrival coming in December, that will be the case for quite some time. However, I am happy with the way things are ticking along.
  • My pregnancy sickness has been much better this week which is such a relief. It may be because I have been away or because I have be wearing pregnancy sickness bands occasionally but I am hoping, praying that I am coming out the other side. Fingers crossed!!
  •  It was a happy week in our house with a rather special birthday! My Meme turned six!!! As you can imagine we have an overload of new toys. She has a party today, which she is so excited about so I’m hoping it all goes well.
  • Autumn – with the dark nights drawing in it’s actually starting to feel a bit like Autumn and, I have to admit, I feel more than ready for the change in season.
  • Christmas shopping – I am sorry for mentioning the C word however, with 2 children already and another baby due days before Christmas, I am needing to get a little organised. I managed to buy a few little items which are perfect for Harri and they were reduced – so as you can imagine I am mighty pleased with myself.
So overall a good week with a fun weekend to look forward to.
What has made you happy this week?

  1. So pleased you had a lovely week away, despite Meme being ill. So typical to happen as soon as you go on holiday! And happy birthday to your blog and to Meme too! That’s great that the sickness has started to ease a bit – I suffered pretty much the whole way through, but I remember it easing a bit at 25 weeks and the relief was immense. Hurrah for autumn too – I’m on board with it now after a lovely autumn sunny day yesterday. #happydays

  2. I’m just starting to think about Christmas shopping although the girls will only be getting a few small things as we’ve booked some lovely family holidays for next year instead. I’m glad you had a lovely trip and the sickness is easing. With both girls it just magically lifted around 12 weeks so I was pretty lucky despite feeling horrendous before that.

  3. Sounds like you had a lovely week away even though your little one was poorly. Hope she’s feeling much better now and enjoyed her birthday party! I love Autumn, I love cosy nights on the sofa with candles and a book. I’ve started on the Christmas shopping too, I’ve got a nice little pile for Parker already. His birthday is in November, so double whammy!

  4. Lots of things to be happy about it seems. Sounds like starting your Christmas shopping is a good move considering, although I would normally cringe at hearing it mentioned so early. I’m loving the arrival of autumn though! #MarvMondays

  5. Sounds like it has been a rather successful week for you. Glad your morning sickness has improved (urgh I do NOT miss that). It is great that your mindset is helping you feel better! My happy moment this past week was FINALLY getting the garden smartened up (before all the Autumn leaves descend and cover up my hard work haha). Xx #DreamTeam

  6. I took a blogging break for nearly two weeks in August and it did me the world of good so I’m a big fan of shutting off from the online world for a while every so often. It sounds overall like you’ve had a great week! This week I’m happy about my blog rebrand and facelift and we finally started our house redecoration. Thanks for sharing on #fortheloveofBLOG x

  7. Aww this is a lovely list – it’s so nice to have a week away and I’ve been trying to use time away as a blogging break too. Sounds like you had a fab time despite Meme being ill and big yay to birthday celebrations and your bloggiversary! Thanks for linking up to #dreamteam x
