HappyDays #48

Hi folks,

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’.


After thinking long and hard about it, I have decided that after this week, I am no longer going to be co-hosting this linky. Katy and I started our little ‘Happy Days’ project over a year ago and some of the posts that I have written over that time have been my favourite to write and I will treasure them forever. I’ve enjoyed getting to know new bloggers who have linked up with us and a lot of those blogs have become my firm favourites. That said, there are weeks when I want to be able to have a break from blogging completely and I’d also like to change up my blog content now and again, too. But being a mum to a toddler, my time is limited and something had to give and so I decided it was perhaps time step away from running a linky.

I hope you will all still visit my blog and I’ll certainly continue to follow and support you all. Katy is going to continue running this linky so of course, you will still have a place to link up your happy blog posts each week! :)

Now, without further ado, here’s what has been making me happy this week:


  • Last weekend we visited Undley Pumpkin Patch and had an absolute blast. I had been looking forward to going back ever since we went for the first time last year.
  • 3 of my best friends told me they’d be coming up from Bristol to visit me this weekend. I absolutely cannot wait to see them and enjoy a girls night out together.
  • Watching the Bake Off final! Was anybody else a sobbing mess? Well done Nadiya, what a thoroughly deserving winner and inspirational lady. I have a feeling she’ll be on our screens a lot more in the future.
  • Bringing Jasmine’s ‘artwork’ home from nursery. I know parents joke about the amount of ‘crap’ their kids bring home from nursery/school but this is all novel to me and I’m super proud of my girl.
  • After living in this house for over two years we’ve finally started decorating our least favourite room – the kitchen! I’m never going to love our kitchen but I’m looking forward to making it ours.
  • I’ve also had fun planning an ‘office area’ for the spare room. No more blogging on the sofa!

Now it’s over to you to share some happy!

    What a lovely week you’ve had Jenna – love the photo of Jasmine in the pumpkin patch and good luck with decorating the kitchen and making an office space for yourself. I love seeing the things that Jessica has made at preschool – I can’t keep it all but I have a folder for the pieces I love most or which display a new skill. Thank you for hosting #HappyDaysLinky over the past year and whilst I am sorry that you are stepping down as a co-host, I can completely understand why you are doing so. It is good to take that step back sometimes, take the pressure off and do what feels right for you. Taking a complete blogging break for a week here and there sounds blissful! Enjoy having more time with your family x

    So sad to hear you are no longer co-hosting but it sounds like a wise decision. I will certainly still be popping by for a good read! Your pumpkin patch visit looks lovely!

    Aw will be sad to see you leave the linky, I must admit I’m useless at remembering to link up each week because the weekends seem to go by so fast. I usually have a post live with the badge but I forget to actually link in.
    We love Undley pumpkin patch, I don’t think we went last year, was the year before, but will definitely be going again this year.
    And yes I also sobbed at Bake Off, and felt ridiculous for doing so but I so wanted her to win, it was a fab final, this series has gone so fast.
    We really must arrange that meet up now the children are back at school if you still want to, sorry I haven’t got around to it sooner. xx

    Ah Jenna noooo will miss you as the host! Totally get where you are coming from though – a linky is hard work. I still have reading to do after my weekend away. Good luck and enjoy! Your week sounded fab. Hope you had a good girly night and your kitchen looks great when done. Jasmine’s artwork can take pride of place xx

    How lovely, we are hoping to visit one of the pumpkin patches in Surrey this half term, it will be my sons fourth birthday, and I think he’d totally love it. We’ve all been feeling a bit unwell this week, so it’s lovely to link up and read some happy pots #HappyDaysLinky

    Sorry to hear you are stepping down but totally understand your reasons and running a linky is hard work! Juggling so many balls is hard and sometimes something has to give. You’ve reminded me that I need to give myself more time for seeing friend, thank you! #happydays

    Enjoy your break. Everyone needs one every once in a while. Enjoy your night out, also.

    The pumpkin patch photo is fantastic & makes me a bit homesick! I used to love the pumpkin patch & autumn festivities in NY. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend with your friends. I look forward to hearing about your night out! Thanks so much for hosting #HappyDays x

    Sorry to hear that you’re stepping down from the linky but I totally understand your reasons. I for one will definitely keep coming back regardless. :-)

    I’m so sorry to hear that you are leaving HappyDays linky. It is been really nice getting to know you.I know exactly what you mean about having more time. I feel like that some days too. Looks like you had a lovely time at Undley Pumpkin Patch. I would love to take my kids to a Pumpkin Patch but I have no idea where about is one near me. I didn’t watch the Bake Off at all. It seems like years I was watching TV at all! lol! But my did Nadiya made the media sensation. Well done to her! Don’t worry you are not the only one. I also keep every art pieces that Ethan has made too. So you should be so proud. :) Good Luck with the deco – I am still typing away on my dinning table… I look forward to seeing your updates soon! I have subscribed your mail so that way I can received all your lovely posts. Don’t worry I’m not a stalker! I don’t have time for that! haha! Have a good week! xx
