Happy Days: Reflexology, Hair Braids And A New Car - What Katy Said

Happy Days: Reflexology, Hair Braids And A New Car

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!

Thank goodness it is the weekend. What with the awful goings on in France it hasn’t been the best end to the week world-wise has it? This year is really shaping up to be pretty naff with celebrity deaths, Brexit and all the terrorist attacks. It is easy to slip into a darkness, feel like you are bringing up children in a world of sadness, but all the more reason to make your own corner of the world a happy one. One where you can teach kindness and happiness. My girls are oblivious to the sadness in the world and that is how I want them to stay, for as long as possible.

So what happy things have happened in our corner of the world this week?

– A lovely afternoon of pampering for me. I went along for an antenatal reflexology session. It. was. bliss.

– Little G’s new class. You may have seen that I was a little (ok a lot) unhappy with her new class but we went along for an hour session and she loved it. I know she will be just fine.

– Lovely mums. One of the mums at school gave some baby boy clothes that were her little boy’s. She also gave a bag of prezzies for baby and the girls for when he arrives as it will be summer hols. So thoughtful and kind.

– Getting organised. I am almost done with all my blog commitments. I want to have August off so I can focus on getting baby out!! I am working a little later each night but if it means I am organised and prepared then so be it!

– Hair braids. You can see in the photo above that G has her hair all braided. It is just my favourite part of the day, sitting and brushing her Rapunzel hair. I try and do a new style every day and this was one of my faves!

– Dinner out. We have had takeaways quite a bit recently but not actually gone out out for dinner. I had a yummy lasagne and a chocolate brownie for dessert. Yum!!

– We picked up our new car!! I cannot tell you how happy I am right now. I am freeeeeeeeeee!

The world may seem to be crumbling around us but if we all make our own corner happy then that is better than nothing isn’t it? We are off to a fun day this morning, tennis session later on and another fun day event in the afternoon. The girls will enjoy every second and I will be vlogging it all so keep an eye on my YT channel if you haven’t subscribed already. New videos every Wednesday 🙂

    I completely agree – I hesitated to post my Happy List today, but surely times like this are exactly what we need them for. I love your line about making our own little corner of the world a bit happier. How lovely to get a surprise pressie from another mum, that’s so nice! I loved getting baby presents from completely unexpected people – I remember getting one from a client I worked with and I nearly cried! The reflexology sounds amazing – hope you’re feeling so much better after it.

    I know what you mean this week has been so horrible for the world and makes me anxious as a mummy. But, my girls have no clue and they still bring so much happiness to my life. I’m so pleased you got your new car and you can get around a lot easier with the girls and hopefully give your body a bit of a break from all the walking. have a lovely weekend x

    Very soon now for the baby. How nice of this mummy to give you some clothes. And a car. So much good news. Unfortunately, what happened in France is tragic. I am very upset about it, but it’s not the place to talk about it. It’s #HappyDaysLinky

    So sad what is going on in the world today. Breaks my heart. Its at moments like these when one is thankful for the “simple’ things in life, like hairbraids, thoughtful gestures etc. Exciting times ahead for you! xx #happydayslinky

    I agree there have been some awful things happening in the world. Sometimes it’s great to switch off from the news and focus on all the lovely things that are happening closer to home. Thanks for hosting #HappyDaysLinky

    Its been a sad week in the news, our parents probably thought the same when we were little. All we can do is do our best to make happy homes and bring our children up to know the difference between right and wrong, enjoy your time off and have a lovely chill out and cant wait to see the new arrival xx

    Wow, I should really try to braid our little girl’s hair like that! She’d be totally amazed! But then a pony tail is so much quicker. One of my fave parts of the morning is brushing her hair before school though 🙂 Thanks for hosting #HappyDays
