Time Together, Video Calls and Happy Girls… Happy Days #43

Time Together, Video Calls and Happy Girls… Happy Days #43

It’s been a busy time lately and the week’s have felt long. We have finally made it to the end of the week and Alice is now on half term. I’m so excited to have her home and to do no school run for a week!

I didn’t do a Happy Days post last week, so this is two weeks of happy moments…

Number One

Last weekend we finished off our spare room and I am so pleased to have the final room of the house done. All that is left now is to accessorise the house and put some more pictures and bits up. I love this bit and it is so nearly all done.

Number Two

Last week Holly and I went to a music group with our friends. She was a bit shy to begin with, but it wasn’t long until she was up on her feet. Of course she was dancing to her own tune and not following the moves the teacher was doing. I love her own unique style!

Number Three

Alice had a night time trail at school last week. She has been looking forward to it for ages. The thought of being at school in the dark with her torch, was too much for her, she was beyond excited. It was a bit much for me, ferrying her back and forth, plus getting some food into her before she went. But we will put that to one side, as she came out with a smile on her face and that is all that matters.

Number Four

Last weekend Andy and I went out with our friends for dinner and to the cinema to see Trainspotting 2. It was lovely to have some time together and to see our friends, without our four children with us. I honestly can’t remember the last time we went to the cinema together and there will definitely be more trips this year.

Number Five

Before my parents left for Australia, we showed my mum how to do video messages. It’s been lovely for the girls to see and talk tp them a couple of times since they left. Isn’t modern technology great for connecting people, when they are the other side of the world. The girls loved it. All week, Holly has been pointing at my phone and saying ‘I see nanny and grandad’, which is so cute.

This weekend we are seeing my brother and niece and the girls are already excited about it.

    It sounds like a lovely week- we love our music classes too – H really looks forward to them, so we do two at the moment! I think your Holly and my H sound very similar, she also gets my iPad and says “see/Skype granny now” or my phone and tells me to phone them -it’s very cute. She’s got it in her head they’re shopping the rest of the time! Have a lovely half term! #happydayslinky

    Ah so lovely, and isn’t it amazing that we can chat across the world these days, I bet School at night was exiting, I am sure our 11 year old would love this too. I recently did a place tour in the dark and it was so incredible. Have a great week x

    Some great moments! What a great idea a night trail, sounds fun! As an Expat we use technology a lot to stay in touch it makes a massive difference #mysundayphoto

    Oh trainspotting 2. How was that? I’d like to see it but may be waiting for its release to TV!
    Aww that’s good you can hear from your parents it’s hard when they go away and your used to seeing them more. Hope they’re having a fab trip! Exploring places in the dark is mind blowing, lol #happydays
