Hello and welcome to this week’s Happy Days Linky.
If you’re new to the linky then pop over to this post to find out all about it.
Don’t forget, I co-host with the lovely Katy so please do pop by and show her some love if you haven’t already. :)
In Kerri-Ann’s post she shared the sweetest photos of her family’s Gruffalo hunt adventure at Delamere Forest. Lil’ G looked like he had the best time ever. It’s made me want to dig out my wellies for a visit to our local Gruffalo Trail.
On to my week…
Out and about
This week I have managed to get for a few walks with friends as well as a few solo walks. I’m feeling really proud of myself for getting out of the house more. A few days this week the weather has been truly awful and yet I’ve still managed to convince myself to put on my coat and head outside. I wrote a post earlier this week about the benefits I’ve found from walking every day. It’s here if you fancy a read and a bit of inspiration. :)
Wednesday was a tough day – Jasmine was particularly hard work, Stephen was at work for 12 hours and I was starting to come down with a bug. It had been sleeting outside but as soon as it stopped I took the advice of my dear friend, Mrs H, and went out for a slice of cake. I walked to the garden centre and had me a big ol’ slab of sponge cake and I began to feel a little better. I got caught in the rain on the way home but I’m pleased to say that I managed to run home most of the way fairly easily so it turns out I’m not quite as unfit as I thought! Totally worked off the cake too, right?
On Thursday we had our second Sing & Sign lesson and we enjoyed it just as much as the first. Afterwards, as Jasmine had a book voucher, I popped into Waterstones to choose a new book for her. There were SO many I could’ve chosen but in the end I settled for The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Both Stephen and I read it as children so it only seemed right that Jasmine would have her own copy. I read it to her as soon as we got home!
Fun at home
We finally had some fun at home… can I get a ‘whoop whoop!’?!
I made Jasmine a sensory tunnel which sounds waaaay more impressive than it actually is. ;)
We had a lot of fun in it (well, I had to test it out!) and Jasmine was fascinated by the multi-coloured lights.
When I posted a photo of it on Instagram lots of people asked me how I made such a fantabulous contraption (OK, one or two people) and it’s simply just a large carboard box with Christmas lights pushed through it and a few blankets on top. Voilà!
I didn’t get to do the other activity I was planning to do as I’m still waiting on a delivery of an item being shipped from America. Now you’re intrigued, eh? Hopefully next week, though!
Time for me
It’s currently Friday afternoon as I type this and I haven’t really done anything for me so far this week. My cold and cough are now in full swing (and Jasmine has it too) so I’m not feeling all that up to much. I did go out this morning to get some fresh air and some vital supplies (Lemsip and chocolate). Whilst Jasmine napped, I snuggled up under a blanket and read some more of The Happiness Project book.
Once Jasmine has gone to bed tonight I’m going to have a long soak in the bath to relax and unwind.
My Happiest Moment
On Monday I got confirmation of our holiday to Bluestone Wales – so incredibly excited about being a #BluestoneBlogger and getting the opportunity to have a family holiday there. I can’t wait to spend some proper time together, just the three of us.
Next week I would like to…
I’m planning to try and go to another new baby group I’ve found. It’s a weekly themed sensory session but only has limited spaces so I’m hoping they’ll have room for little old us!
