HappyDays Linky #20 - What Katy Said

HappyDays Linky #20

Welcome to HappyDays! If you are new then take a look here. We want to inspire you to make the best out of every day, appreciate the little things in life and have happy days.

Where has this week gone? Once again I am behind with my commenting! I tweeted this photo on Tuesday night, it was my laptop showing the number of tabs I had open at the time (the number of blogs I had to comment on!).

WP_20150224_005Actually that was half the amount I started with- was a long old night I can tell you! Finally got round to commenting on all of your lovely posts on Thursday night! Such a lovely lot of posts, I really need to set an alarm and do them earlier in the week!!

10989190_10155228824615176_8521003531085100239_oI really enjoyed reading about Vickie’s week– if not just for the fact she has inspired me to get back into my Project Life hobby! For anyone who hasn’t heard of it you neeeeed it in your life. If you take millions of photos then it is for you!!

Out & About

Hasn’t the weather been lovely? We had a quick shower on Wednesday morning but on the whole it has been so sunny and dare I say it, warm! Not enough to not wear a coat of course but no need for gloves or hats now, that saves us 10 minutes not having to search for them every time we leave the house!!

Now, I said warm- not dry as shown by this photo of G as she splashed her way through town! 🙂


We had a lovely get together with some friends I met through Netmums, if any of you feel you need to get to know more people then definitely get along to your local meetup. If there isn’t one near you then set one up, that is what I did and I have met some wonderful people through it. I have stopped running ours now as I just couldn’t fit it all in sadly.

Fun at Home

Now I am not entirely sure this counts but I certainly had a lot of fun doing it! After going to a fab style lesson last week I decided to have a clear out of my wardrobe. The rule was ‘if it doesn’t make you feel good then it has to go’ and I was ruthless!! So often I go to my wardrobe and feel like I have nothing to wear and it turns out I am right- most of my clothes either don’t fit or make me look terrible.

Now unfortunately I did not take a photo of it before I started but I don’t mind telling you nothing was on hangers and it was all piled high in a jumbled heap!

clothesSo on the left- the pile of clothes to give away- I feel so cleansed!! In the middle is the gaping big hole they left behind. And finally on the right, I was able to bring down some clothes that had been shoved on top of the wardrobe and hand them up nicely. That is now everything I own, all hanging or folded nicely in the pockets.

Time for Me

You may have already seen but a few bloggers arranged a meetup last weekend. I travelled up to the Wirral where I had so much fun chatting about this and that. Blogging has brought so many wonderful people into my life- including you lot! I have felt so much happier this week, even Mr F has noticed. I feel for the first time in a very long time that I am finally me.

My Happiest Moment

WP_20150225_008At aged 3 I think she is amazing!

 This week Little G decided she could write. She picked up a pencil and wrote her name. Both Mr F and I sat there in total disbelief as she has just scribbled up until this point. She can now write all of our names with no help at all. It is like she has been carefully watching until such a time when she was perfect. I am so proud of her at times, my heart could burst!

Next week I would like to…

It is my birthday on Tuesday, 31 would you believe? I am hoping to get some vouchers and go buy some nice clothes- ones that fit and make me feel fabulous!!

    Sounds like you had a great week – well done for having a clear-out with your wardrobe. Your screenshot looks a lot like mine does when I’m catching up on comments too! I love the photo of Little G in her raincoat and wellies and well done to her for being able to write, that is amazing! Thank you as always for hosting #HappyDaysLinky, always so lovely to link up 🙂

    I am so glad you enjoyed the blogger meetup you had. Also, the weather is good here in the Netherlands too. 🙂

    I wanted to link up a post too, but couldn’t because the text link thingy is inaccessible to my screen reader for some reason. I suggest you use the thumbnail linky thingy, though I understand that if you have a template for this linky this may be hard. I really think it’s weird that the text linky doesn’t work while the thumbnail one does, but I already contacted InLinkz on this and they seem unable to solve it.

      Hi Astrid, sorry you weren’t able to link up. Unfortunately the thumbnail one costs money and so I am unable to upgrade to that one at the moment. If you ever want to link up you are very welcome to email me the link of the post and I will link it up for you x

        Okay thanks. Didn’t know the thumbnail one costs money.

    Hi Katy,

    Little G’s writing is amazing, such a clever little lady. Doesn’t it make such a difference when the weather starts to change and the mornings get lighter? This is such a happy post and great idea!

    Happy birthday for Tuesday
