I recently posted a list of 50 things that make me happy and it seems that this last week has been full of little things that have made me happy – spending time together as a family, having a lovely day for myself, being proud of Jessica at our first ever parents’ evening and enjoying some one-to-one time with Sophie.
Out and About:
It is rare for hubby to join me and the girls on a day out to Legoland (the last time was nearly a year ago on my last birthday) but we managed to have a family day out last Friday. As you can see from the photo below, the girls enjoyed themselves very much!
I found a new toddler group locally which Sophie and I went to while Jessica was at preschool on Wednesday. There were so many different things for Sophie to play with – small world toys, a craft area, ride-on toys and a home corner. She just flitted from one thing to another and thoroughly enjoyed herself in the process. It was the first time I’ve taken Sophie to a group like this on her own and been able to just focus on what she wants to do. The other mums were so friendly too and I suspect it might become a regular activity.
We had our first parents’ evening later that day and were so pleased to be told how well Jessica has settled in to preschool; that she is sociable and friendly and achieving the skills expected for her age group. She is a little more advanced with numbers which we were pleased about – she loves numbers and always points them out when out and about.
Fun at home:
We’ve been making birds and butterflies out of paper plates this week and both Jessica and Sophie have enjoyed gluing and sticking and getting creative.
Time for me:
Getting a whole day to myself to go to BlogCamp last weekend was utter bliss! It was so lovely to travel up with Mel (Le Coin de Mel) and catch up with her as well as meeting so many other lovely bloggers. I learned so much from the day and will hopefully be putting the things I learned into practice over the coming weeks.
My happiest moment:
Sitting in the sunshine at Legoland with hubby and enjoying our picnic whilst watching the girls laughing and chasing each other around a lamp post.
Next week I would like to:
