Winter Walks, Proud Mummy and Our New Home…Happy Days #39

Winter Walks, Proud Mummy and Our New Home…Happy Days #39

I normally find that January can drag a little bit, but this week flew by. It was Alice’s first full week back at school and she wasn’t too tired, which was a bonus.

Let’s talk happy moments…

Number One

Last Sunday we went for a walk in the woods near us with our friends and their daughters. It was lovely to see the girls all together and it was nice to get some fresh air. We are so lucky to have it on our doorstep and we will definitely be making the most of it.

Number Two

On Monday Holly and I met my parents at a coffee shop. Holly normally gets bored quite quickly, but she sat for while and did some colouring and ate her biscuit. It was lovely to actually be able to have a conversation and not be chasing her around. I really hope this is a turning point.

Number Three

Holly went to pre-school for the second time and she skipped in excitedly. I was a bit worried that last week might have been a fluke and she may have had a wobble this week. But, she loved it and it was so sweet when I picked her up and she was dressed as a fairy.

Number Four

Alice had a nasty fall at school this week and her cheek was badly swollen and grazed. Of course this is no where near a happy moment, in fact I cried a little when I put her to bed that night. But there were two things that made me happy and proud. When she told me that a little girl knocked her over, she was very quick to make sure everyone knew it was an accident. She didn’t want anyone to get into trouble, bless her. The second thing is that it must have really hurt, but the teacher that looked after said, that she was so brave and didn’t cry. This made me a proud mummy.

Number Five

We’ve been in our new home just over a month now and I can honestly say I’ve never felt so happy and content in a home. I just love spending time here and I often wander from room to room, not quite believing it is mine. We are getting to the stage of accessorising, which is my favourite part. I love browsing sites, finding lots of beautiful things to fill our home.

We’ve a busy weekend with swimming lessons and parties. I hope you have a lovely weekend…

    Some lovely moments and a scary one but it must be lovely that Holly has settled well! And meeting friends for coffee is always good #HappyDays

    Sounds as though you have had a fun packed week. Your posts are always filled with such joy and richness – I guess this is why you have many followers.

    Children are far more adaptable than we think. Often we as parents become anxious about the next phase in their lives and they embrace it wholeheartedly.

    Glad you are settling into your new home. Hope you will have many happy years there.

    Aw so lovely that you love your new home so much! Fab feeling. It’s great to be able to go out for coffee or a meal and have a chat…my daughter is a similar age and it is brilliant. Hope Alice is better! xx #happydays

    What a lovely post of happy moments. Hope your daughter is doing ok now. So easy to get caught up in the negativity in our heads, lovely to read something so positive xx

    Sounds like a great week (apart from the swollen face, poor thing). How sweet that she was so quick to make sure no one got into trouble x

    What a brave little girl Alice is – no wonder you are so proud. Oh my Meme could sit good as gold in a cafe and colour but Harri is a different story! Well done Holly. Have a lovely week #happydays

    Happy one month home anniversary!! I’d love that feeling myself! Way to go brave and kind Alice, I’d be a proud mummy too after that ! #happydays

    Awww she sounds so brave and considerate, definitely a proud mummy moment among your sadness at it happening. We’ve been in our new home a bit over a year, and feel the same. We’re still painting and pottering with diy, but I do manage to get some accessories in too – it’s such a brilliant feeling isn’t it? Even if it’s just one corner or table #happydayslinky

    Oh I wondered how she’d hurt her cheek, poor lamb. Thank you for joining in #HappyDaysLinky x
