Happy Days: Family Time, DIY and Baskets of Strawberries

Welcome to HappyDays! The idea of this linky is to inspire others to make the best out of every day, to see the happy in the little things. As no matter what, there is always something good in every single day- we just need to take the time to see it. Share your happy posts, Sian and I love to read them!


This week has been so nice as Mr F has had the week off. He hadn’t used any of his holiday allowance so far this year and what with baby coming we probably won’t be going too many places to need him to use many days. So, he decided to take a few random weeks off to spend with us at home, this week being one of those weeks. We haven’t done too much but it has just been nice to spend that extra time together.

So what has made me happy this week?

– Mr F being home. I really miss him when he is at work, sounds slushy but he is my best friend and so spending time together is my favourite thing. 🙂

– Getting my photo wall started in the hall. It has been something I’ve wanted to do for ages and this week we found out our neighbours were going away – perfect opportunity to drill 6 million holes!! I am so pleased with how it is looking and just need to order the photos now!!

– Bank appointments. On Tuesday we had a mammoth appointment at the bank to discuss borrowing some money for a car. Instead of a loan we wanted to extend our mortgage and I was worried because the last time we discussed our mortgage I was working full time. But, they were absolutely brilliant and accepted our situation. Now we just have to find a car!! So so excited!!

– Strawberry picking. Can you believe I haven’t been since I was 2 years old? Probably down to the fact that if I eat a whole strawberry I come out in a rash. Weirdly if it is all mushed up in a blender I have no issues at all. Anyway, we went strawberry picking on Thursday and filled two massive baskets.

– Baking. Due to the huge number of strawberries we picked, I had to think of a few different recipes to use them all up. So, yesterday was a baking day – more to come on that! Yum! 🙂

– Lovely comments. I had this in my happy list a few weeks ago but again this week some people have left some truly lovely comments. They always make me smile so thank you xx

I feel like I’ve missed something but my brain is like mush these days!! Hope you’ve had a good week too 🙂

  1. Oh I love those random weeks where my husband has time off and we all just spend it together at home! Lovely to have that time altogether before the next little one arrives!

    I do love strawberries and picking them too! How weird that if they’re blended you’re ok with them though. There really is no explaining allergies sometimes!

      I know, so weird! I thought I may have grown out of it but a couple of summers ago I got a rash after eating half a whole strawberry x

  2. Oh how bizarre that you cannot eat whole strawberries but can mashed up. I love baking with fresh strawberries. I love when the hubby has time off too. Hope you have a lovely week x

  4. I love new car shopping, so exciting and it will be great to have one with lots of space when little man comes along. Its lovely all spending time at home together isn’t it? Gosh I haven’t picked strawberries since I was about 10, Joe would love it, Jack doesn’t like strawberries, he’s so odd he doesn’t like any red fruit !!

  5. Oh I said lovely comments too this week, it is just the best feeling when someone leaves a lovely comment so I understand why you would want to repeat. How lovely to be getting a new car! I would love to go strawberry picking with the boys…may have to look into that.

  6. What a lovely week! I so agree with you about hubby being your best friend, I really can’t wait for mine to get home if he’s been away and then turn into some non-stop talking machine! In saying that sometime I do it just after he’s been at work for the day 🙂 Your strawberry picking sounds lovely!
    Thanks for hosting x

  7. The strawberry picking place hasn’t opened around here yet. We’ve never taken the kids, we say we will every year and never get around to it! It’s definitely happening this year. Thanks for hosting lovely xx #Happydays
