Birthday, Sunflowers and Packing…Happy Days #14

Happy Days #14

What a strange week this has been, I have just been getting through each day and literally collapsing in bed. Consumed by grief and tiredness. Andy has been away for work and that has been difficult, but I survived. The girls have been their usual happy smiley girls and they keep me going.

 Lets talk happy moments…

Plus my wonderful husband and girls brought me a Canon GX7 for my birthday and I am super excited and can’t wait to start using properly.

Its time to stop pretending that Alice isn’t going to school in September, so we went into town and tried on some school dresses. She was so excited and it was lovely to see her so happy about what is coming up.

Spending time with the girls in the garden planting sunflowers seeds. Alice loved it and managed to do it all herself by just listening to my instructions. She was so proud of herself and keeps asking when they will be big!

Today I am off to London for my first blogging event, BritMums Live Conference. I am really nervous and really excited. I hope to meet lots of lovely bloggers and chat about it without people looking at me weird. People that get blogging!

    So glad that Alice was excited about trying on school dresses – we had our first school visit today and Jessica had a wonderful time. As much as I want time to slow down, I know she is ready for this step and excited by it and that helps a lot – I’m sure it must help you a little to see Alice being happy about it all too, although no doubts we will both be in bits on that first day! So lovely to meet you briefly at #BML16 and hope you have a wonderful holiday x

    It was really lovely to meet you on Saturday, kind if surreal as I feel I already know you from reading your blog. I hope my boys reach the stage where they hug each other instead of squabbling! Thanks for linking up to #HappyDaysLinky x
