Cuddles, Confidence and Caring…Happy Days #13

Happt Days #13

I’m not going to lie this has not been a happy week for me, there is a lot of sadness in my family at the moment. But what is great about having children is, they bring the light into your dark. They bring laughter and they give the best hugs, even if they don’t know how much you needed one right at that moment.

So, whilst most of week has been filled with more sadness than I knew was possible, my girls have still brought me lots of happy moments and kept me going.

 Lets talk happy moments…

Our neighbour dropped round a parcel they took in for us and I opened it my mistake to discover my birthday present…oops! When Andy came home, Alice stood with her hands on her hips and told him that our neighbour had brought me the present and they would have to go to the shops and buy me something else. It was so funny!!

Through the sadness of this week, it has reminded me how brilliant my family is and I am so lucky to have such an awesome one.

This weekend it’s my birthday and Fathers’ Day, so I think a lot of cake will be eaten and maybe a few presents to unwrap.

    I’m so sorry you’re having such a difficult time. You’re right though, children really do cheer you up and make sure you always have something to smile about. I love the idea of a pre school event that the younger sibling can go to, how sweet of Alice to show Holly around.

    Sorry to hear you’re going through a difficult time right now. You’re right though – there is nothing like your children to lift you up when you’re feeling a bit down, and you do have a lovely family, your girls are just so lovely together. Hope you have a lovely birthday and Father’s Day, and that you end up with a lovely present, surprise or no surprise!

    I’m so sorry to hear that this has been a sad week for you and glad to hear that your gorgeous girls have helped bring some light into the darkness of the sadder moments. Alice telling your hubby that they needed to buy you another birthday present is such a funny moment and I love hearing about what a lovely big sister Alice is with Holly – they always sound like they are so wonderful together. Sending you a virtual hug and hope you manage to enjoy your birthday and Father’s Day too despite your sadness xx
