What has made me happy - week 29.

This week was my last week before going back to university. Unfortunately the snow put paid to my return because I couldn't drive there. Fingers crossed I can get there tomorrow. We had a lovely relaxed week and weekend, making sure that for once, we had absolutely no plans. It has been nice that toddler groups and art groups are back on so that we can get settled into our old routines again. 

I have been out and about playing with my new camera which has been very enjoyable. I am a very long way off actually knowing anything about photography but I know which buttons to press to take an 'easy' picture. We have enjoyed the simple pleasures of going to the park as a family and feeding the ducks on the way home.

So, what has made me happy this week:

  • Treat tea. We had tea upstairs this week as a treat. It went a little bit wrong with apple juice spit all over the carpet, but nice to let them have a picnic upstairs.
  • The girl asked for milk in a cup at breakfast. I didn't realise it was to feed her toy cat! Very cute.

  • I have clearly been feeling happy this week. The children had smiley muffin pizzas for tea one night. The boy told me he was 'very proud of me'. At the weekend they had smiley sandwiches. It makes me giggle that I clearly express happiness through food! 

  •  Snow makes me happy. Whilst it is annoying and stopped me getting in to university, it is beautiful. Watching thick, fluffy snowflakes falling steadily to the ground makes me surprisingly warm inside!

How about you? What has made you happy, or made a smile spread across your face?

  1. Looks like a lovely week. I did LOL when I saw the cat photo. I thought it was a real cat LOL

    1. Thank you. Yes, I didn't know it looked that realistic until I saw the picture!

  2. Your food face made me smile this week when I saw it and I've wondered about doing the same for z when he eats! Hope your camera is a good 'un! I've been wondering about getting one too!

    1. I hadn't realised how much smiley food I had made this week! I would recommend getting a second hand one. Mine was far cheaper than I thought it would be.

  3. Love the smiley faces and hoping we will see some snow too

    1. Thank you. Think everyone is meant to get some snow tomorrow!

  4. Lots of snow here and although it is beautiful I am so scared of falling! The food looks great. I did a post called lunch box love with some ideas if you wanted some themed inspiration :) x

    1. Ooh thank you. I have seen an American lunchbox site which is amazing but must take forever!
