This week has been an odd mixture of wet and humid weather but luckily anytime we escaped the confines of work or the house, the sun peeked out from behind the clouds to greet us. Unfortunately, the wet weather has meant B can’t cut the lawn which is just too wet. It’s slowly becoming a forest again. I have to say I’m happy he cuts the grass and not me because by the time it’s dry enough to cut it’ll be up around my knees! I’ll admit I didn’t think I would do a Happy Days post this week but there have been enough happy moments to make a list and remember them. What has made you happy this week?
Our Family Life – Happy Days #2
It was my birthday on Tuesday and the first birthday in years that I had to work. I’ve been lucky that most years we’re on holidays over my birthday and we usually go out for breakfast or enjoy a picnic to celebrate. Not this year. But B and A surprised me with a gorgeous dark chocolate meringue cake and hearing A sing Happy Birthday to me over and over again, melted my heart. Being a Mum is awesome!
My own Mum planted some recovery plants in pots for us a week ago… and I haven’t killed them! I’m not the best at keeping beautiful plants alive but I’m determined to nurture these pots because my Mum put so much time and effort into them! Go Momma Bear! (Yikes, ignore the paint on the house – we’ll get around to that some day!)
On Friday, we met up with my parents, my sister, and her four wonderful kids. I have not seen the kids in about 6 weeks as life has taken over with one thing or another. It can be so hard to arrange to meet up but our parents invited us up for lunch and while the food was being prepped my sister and I brought the kids to Newbridge House and Farm. A beautifully warm day and lots of fun with slush puppies, swings, slides, farm animals and a forest walk! Needless to say we were shattered and A was fast asleep by 7:50pm (whoop, more time to blog… or procrastinate with twitter)
Today we went to Wooly Wards Farm, for a Teddy Bears Picnic with Nanny and A’s little cousin F! I don’t know who was more excited, me or the kids! What a great day! Keep an eye out next week for our review of Wooly Wards Farm and the Teddy Bears Picnic.
My Blogging Life -Happy Days #2
Longlisted whoop! I made the longlist in two categories in the LWI Blog Awards! To say I’m happy is an absolute understatement! I am ecstatic and so eager to make the shortlist. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me!
I have 180 official subscribers to my blog – yowsers when did that happen!? I love each and every one of you!
Social Media – I’ve almost reached 1000 followers on twitter. And a wee following of 25 on facebook. I find facebook difficult so I’ll admit I focus on twitter a lot more. But I’m slowly getting into the swing of things with Facebook.
And that’s my Happy Days List for this week. What has made you happy this week?
