HappyDays #46

Hello Happy-dayers!

Welcome to the Happy Days Linky – a place to link up your latest happy-themed blog posts and get that warm fuzzy feeling by reading other people’s. My co-host is the lovely Katy, be sure to pop over to her blog and say ‘hello’.

Now, I have to warn you guys not to get too close as we’re still nursing colds. *sneezes* Snotty noses all round! However, we’ve had some lovely, sunny (surprisingly warm) days this week and we’ve tried to make the best of them.

Here’s what has been making me happy this week:

  • We visited Claire Castle Country park for the first time at the weekend. We wore Heidi out and Jasmine enjoyed running around the Motte. You can see more photos from our visit Here.
  • I needed a 0.5lb loss at Slimming World this week to stay within my target weight range and continue having free membership. I managed to knock 1.5lbs off so very chuffed with that!
  • I did it, I went back to Dancejoy on Wednesday! It was a fairly small turnout which is both good and bad in equal measure. It’s hard to ‘blend in’ with less people but I suppose there’s less reason to feel self-conscious. As usual after 10 minutes or so, I was dancing without a care in the world. I’m already looking forward to next one in a couple of week’s time.
  • Jasmine started nursery properly this week. She did really well and I feel so, so proud of her. All my worries about her starting nursery have eased and I feel even more confident that we made the right decision.
  • Discovering Giant Custard Creams (from Tesco). Thank me later. #LifeChanging
  • Now it’s over to you to share some happy!

    I haven’t had one of the giant custard creams yet but I had something similar in Costa I think? Anyway, point is, have you tried the custard cream spread from Tesco? Unreal! x

      No I haven’t! Didn’t know such a thing existed. I’ll get right on it! ;) xx

    So glad that Jasmine is enjoying nursery and that you have been enjoying going back to Dancejoy. Well done on losing 1.5lbs this week and hope you feel better soon. Thanks for hosting #happydayslinky :-)

      Thanks Louise – we got over our colds pretty quickly, thankfully. Although I’m sure it won’t be long before we get the next one! ;) x

    Sounds like a very happy week! The custad creams alone are enough to make a week pretty awesome!! Thankyou so much for hosting #happydays!

    So glad to hear Jasmine’s enjoying nursery – such good news for the both of you :) and Dancejoy sounds like so much fun, wish there was one near me! xx

    • Jenna October 3, 2015 / 8:31 pm

      I can’t tell you how I relieved I am! I’m so happy that she’s enjoying nursery. xx

    Glad to hear you returned to DanceJoy, your original visit was one of the first posts I read on your blog :) I’m loving the sound of a giant custard cream! Thanks for hosting #HappyDays :)

    • Jenna October 3, 2015 / 8:33 pm

      Thanks Debbie – I’m really pleased it’s started back up again. If nothing else, I could do with the exercise! ;) x

    Ah I am so glad she is loving Nursery and that you finally got back to your dance class. Jasmine is really growing now, I love how she always seems so happy x

    • Jenna October 3, 2015 / 8:34 pm

      I can assure you she’s not always happy! ;) But she mostly is a happy little girl. Thanks Sarah – I’m really pleased about Dancejoy too – I missed going for a boogie each week. xx

    Well done on the weight loss! I’ve just restarted SW :-) I am pleased to hear that Jasmine had a good time at nursery, I hope you enjoy the bit of freedom xx

    • Jenna October 3, 2015 / 8:35 pm

    Congratulations on the weightloss! And I am so chuffed that you went back to dance club! Great news too that Jasmine has settled at nursery and I’m glad that you’re feeling happier about the decisions. Have a lovely week! Vx

    • Jenna October 3, 2015 / 8:37 pm

      Thanks Vickie – I was still just as nervous going back to Dancejoy this time as I was when I went the first time but glad I went – it was good fun. :) xx

    Oh no, the September germs got you too! I hope you guys are all well soon. Congrats on your weight loss, well done hun! Thank you for hosting #HappyDays x

    • Jenna October 3, 2015 / 8:38 pm

      Yep, afraid so – didn’t take long, did it?!

      Thank you, Becky! :) xx

    Aww… still smiling even with a cold. Very cute! Claire Castle Country park looks like a place where Evelyn would love to run around in too. Glad that you had a nice day out and the weather has permitted so. Great job on the Slimming World. You go girl! I think I need to join them too! Would really like to see you dance off at the Dancejoy. Intriguing! ;) Well done Jasmine for settling in so well at nursery. I know it is hard. I was very emotional when Ethan started nursery. But I think I will hold on to Evelyn a little bit longer. Beside she still naps in the morning like the whole morning! Sometimes from 9am – 12noon! I need to check out those bad boys Giant Custard Creams (from Tesco). Thanks ;) xx #HappyDays

    • Jenna October 3, 2015 / 8:41 pm

      Haha, a dance off would be fun! ;) I am feeling much better about nursery now that I know shes’ enjoying herself. Definitely check out the bad boy custard creams!! :) xx

    Giant custard creams?? Where have these been all my life?! Your dancing sounds great, my Pilates class only has room for 3-4 people, plus the teacher and I definitely work harder as a result of not having anywhere to hide. Hope your sniffles are well and truly on the way out X

    • Jenna October 3, 2015 / 8:41 pm

      I know, I thought exactly the same thing when I saw them!! Haha, Yes I’d think I’d be the same in pilates class that small. :) xx

    Sooooo glad you went along, sounds so cool. You are braver than I though. xxx

    • Jenna October 3, 2015 / 8:43 pm

      Thanks Katy – not so much brave, just desperate to have an hour to myself! ;) x
