Dinner with friends, parties and time with my niece…Happy Days #16

Dinner with friends, parties and time with my niece…Happy Days #16

This week has flown by and for once I am thankful for that. It has been a difficult week to get through with my nan’s funeral taking place. But, even during this period of sad moments and dealing with my grief, I can still recall some happy moments. This is why I love writing this list of happy moments, without it I would brush this week aside as just rubbish, and yes it was rubbish most of the time. But there was also some really lovely moments.

 Lets talk happy moments…

Spending some time with niece on Tuesday when her teachers were on strike. The sun came out and we managed a trip to the park. The three girls just adore each other and its beautiful to watch.

Having dinner with two friends. It was so lovely to eat lots of yummy chinese food and chat to them, without little people distracting us. It was just what I needed this week.

Today I am taking my niece for her swimming lesson and I am looking forward to spending time with her. The rest of the weekend will be spent sorting and cleaning the house, I haven’t been able to get straight since coming back from holiday. Have a lovely weekend everyone!Signature

    It’s great that your little one had a good first stay and play – I would be so nervous leaving Bo for her first day so it must be such a relief to know she had a good time!
