Happy Days: Long Weekends, Days Out And Beautiful Curls - What Katy Said

Happy Days: Long Weekends, Days Out And Beautiful Curls

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!

Have you had a good week?

It has been half term here for us, which has meant no work for me school-wise and no nursery for Little G. I have decided that I am not going to take on any more supply now as last week was just too much. My bump is so heavy now that even standing at the front of class for a short time just puffs me out! So, we’ve had a week just me and the girls (after a lovely long weekend with Mr F too of course).

So what happy things have made my list this week?

– The Duxford Airshow. We are not planey people but just wow, best day out! I would definitely go again as there was so much for us to do. If you want to read about it or see our little vlog then pop on over.

– The Geronimo Festival. I know! Check me out doing two things on one weekend. It almost killed me but we all had fun. I would go again but be warned – the queues are enormous!

– #LLBChat. As you may or may not know, Aby and I run a blog together – Live. Love. Blog. It is a blog aimed at bloggers, where we love to share our knowledge and help bloggers with bits and bobs. We held a Twitter chat on Wednesday and it was really lovely. So many people came along (which hurt my head keeping up with all the notifications) and hopefully everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. 🙂

LJs curls

– LJ’s curls. Bit of an odd one but how adorable are those curls? She’s always had straight hair but recently, as her hair is growing, those curls are coming through. Love!!

– Lovely comments on here. It always means such a lot when people take the time to comment. Not that it means any less when someone reads and doesn’t comment but it is a way of getting to know readers. I have a good head for names and I always recognise regular ‘faces’ that pop up. Really appreciate it 🙂

– A day at the zoo. Actually it wasn’t the zoo that was good (in fact it was pretty pants to be honest) but the friends we spent the day with. The girls both had a great time and it just goes to show that as long as you have great company it doesn’t matter where you are.

Now please keep your fingers crossed for good weather down south for me as I have to do a photoshoot with the girls outside and the post is due for Monday! Nothing like a last minute gig eh? Hopefully it will be sunny where you are too and we can all get on with enjoying summer!!

    Adorable curls, my youngest Holly has curls just like this and I love them. The #LLBChat was great and I struggled to keep up too! I think Sunday is meant to be the sunnier day for the weekend, good luck 🙂 Thank you for hosting lovely x

    The Air Show looks fab – you just never know with these things! We took our Monster Truck mad son to a show years ago that looked a dead cert winner and as soon as he heard the engines he freaked! |Then he was worried that the line of cars in the middle that the truck was ploughing through was actually the car park and that ours was somewhere in the pile!

    Thanks for sharing #HappyDaysLinky

    I loved the twitter chat, I hope you are going to do another one? I watched your weekend vlog the other day it looked like a very fun but exhausting weekend. Good for you to make the decision not to do any more teaching, your body is obviously telling you it’s too much now xx

    My hubby and I enjoyed watching your event on Duxford the other day. Getting out of the house and doing something new can be great fun. We’ve yet to get to the Geronimo Festival maybe one year. #LLBChat sounds great I just need to remember to turn up . The weather has perked up this weekend so I’m sure you will be getting lots of great photos to show off tomorrow. Thanks for hosting. #HappyDaysLinky
