Happy Days: Parents Evening, Bowling & Gilmore Girls

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!


I am writing this after an evening watching Gilmore Girls – I adore it! I have been looking forward to the new series for ages so am so pleased it is now on Netflix – that is my evenings set for a while!

Well what a week – I have one big headache. I have had broken sleep for months now and I think the adrenaline is finally starting to wear off. I am exhausted, really exhausted and I would give anything to have just one night of full uninterrupted sleep. I am just so thankful that it is almost Christmas, my favourite time of the year – it is the only thing keeping me going right now.

What has made my happy list this week?

– Parents evening. We went along to Gracie’s school to meet her teacher properly and see how she is getting on. She has settled in really well and is doing everything she should for her age. The thing that made me really happy (my inner teacher coming out) was that she always asks for more work. She hates to be idle and always wants to push herself. Just as well really as I am a bit rubbish at doing anything at home at the moment.

– Cheeky monkey. Lils has been very testing this week, probably been the main culprit contributing to my headache. But look at that face – can’t be mad at her can you?

– Hobbycraft. Am I the only one who loves that place? They had some black Friday sales early on in the week and I picked up some cardboard houses for the girls to colour in. Such a bargain and they love them! That’ll be them kept quiet all of Christmas morning!!

– Bowling. We took the girls bowling and it was so so nice! Lils got 2 strikes – that is 2 more than Mr F got, which totally made my day haha!! He is so competitive and the fact he didn’t do as well as a 2 year old drove him nuts! He still won of course, but no strikes ha!

– Baking. Lils had her best friend over to play and we all did a bit of baking. I am missing chocolate so much so was pleased to find a recipe that I could enjoy too! Pop over to have a look if you fancy cooking with your little one – it is super easy!

– Gilmore Girls. Say no more.

Not many things on my list this week, I am just glad I survived really!

Have a great weekend!

  1. We have Alice’s parents evening in a couple of weeks and I can’t wait to find out how she is getting on. You never really know what they get up to at school. Yay for chocolate that you can eat, love it when you find a recipe that suits everyone. Thanks for hosting x

  2. Aww you do need to sleep hun. Maybe Santa can bring you that for Christmas? I really need to take the grem bowling as I’m sure she would love it. I have heard loads about the Gilmore Girls…watched it when younger a bit but may see what all the hype is about! Have a fab weekend and thanks for hosting xx

  3. We have parents evening coming up on Tuesday. Its always so interesting to hear about how they are doing when we aren’t around. So nice to hear positive things.

  4. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who loves hobby craft, we made our own wedding invitations and save the dates from there plus the confetti (three different sized heart hole punches) but hubby now hates the place. Darn it! #happydayslinky

  5. What a great week. I love love love Gilmore Girls. I loved it when it was first on back in my early 20’s. I’ve watched the first two and loved them. Great parents night. We had ours a few weeks back, it sort of makes you feel like someone else is telling you, you are doing a good job doesn’t it? Lovely photos xx

  6. I’m yet to get sucked into Gilmore Girls… but then again I’m not long finished the first Game of Thrones book having not seen any of the series! Hope Christmas keeps you going katy! Thanks for hosting #happydayslinky

  7. Ooh, I’ll have to check out Gilmore Girls – have never seen it! Am with you on the sleep exhaustion. LP has been randomly waking up in the night again, having lulled us into a false sense of security! Soon tired. Hang in there! We’ll all get there. xx
