All behind

Well the last time i posted it was Sunday and now it's Friday and to be honest after this week i think trying to back track might prove difficult. It's been a stressful week, faulty cars on top of imminent MOTs and decision making regards do we don't we what do we do if we don't and sometimes you just don't feel up to making decisions.

Today's happy was brought about by the appearance of a rare thing of late. The sunshine, it's been with us on and off all day, blue skies too always helps. Done three hair cuts today, despite not having trustworthy wheels, two ladies came to me and i went to the other and whilst there the last ladies daughter brought me little letters and gems whilst her little sister plied me with cute smiles which i take her up on as much as possible. Hoping to get the issues of wheels sorted over the weekend, should result in a change of and with a bit of luck i will be shining as the sun is by Monday.

Have a good one :)

Sunday 2nd Feb

So I'm posting Sunday late but you know how it is at weekends with all the excitement of pre-school routines lol

So I'm sure we have days when you might not see/feel/hear your happy but amongst alot of unwanted 'stuff' this weekend i found moments of mine. I made soup on Saturday, carrots, peppers, sweet potatoes and ordinary, i roasted all the veg for a time and then popped them in the slow cooker with 2ltrs of stock, half chicken, half veg. A very good friend introduced me to homemade soup last year and i have to say it's one of the best things ever. I SO enjoyed my soup with my cheese topped roll, and i have discovered that there are lots of good reasons for enjoying those veg. I'm not a big eater of veg, infact until my intro to soup I'd never eaten peppers (picked them out) or squash or sweet potatoes, infact cauiliflower too which I've also made into soup so to be eating more veg and reading the other benefits of Peppers, Carrots, Sweet Potatoes  etc just makes me even more pleased that I've learnt to make my own  soup. The links are all from Pintrest and you can take what they say with a pinch of salt (personally not recommended lol) but what's not to like.
This soup was followed by some homemade flapjack with ginger and choc chips and was also delish although i was somewhat bloated after (eyes bigger than belly!).

So they are my moments of happy. Oh and come the end of the day my son brought a little clip down where he apologised for being a less than obliging child with such a serious face and told me and my husband that we're the best parents in the world which of course brought tears to my eyes. We're not but we get by but how lovely :)

So how's your happy?

Saturday, 1 February 2014


So the other day i saw this challenge posted on Facebook, right up my street i thought but i didn't relish sharing pictures with everyone so i have decided to blog it instead. I have a Jar of Joy of sorts at home so i had started that but am going to post here instead. It might be short and sweet but hopefully it'll be worth the time spent appreciating it.

I have declared February my month for fun. In whatever shape or form it comes i hope to do one thing even if it's only small that is not the norm for me, it's very easy to get bogged down with the day to day grind, housework, looking for a job, school run etc etc.

So today's moment was during a walk to town, on my own, with my earphones in which is unusual for me. It was very blustery and a little chilly but there were blue skies and a little sunshine. It felt good to blow the negative cobwebs that have been building up these last few weeks away. Blasting my ears with some good tunes was quite uplifting and also by having them on i felt i was in my own little bubble cut off from those around me. I played 'Happy' on the way home by Will Pharell, i love that tune, i believe if you played it enough times you could change your whole outlook, maybe not everyone else's but certainly my own and it needs some positive nutrition. So my happy moment for today :)
