It’s weeks like this when it’s been a bit crazy that I really appreciate writing my happy list. It’s a chance for me to reflect on the week and appreciate that there have been good moments.
Let’s talk happy moments…
Last Sunday the girls had a birthday party at a local soft play. They love it there and we don’t normally go to this one as Holly can’t manage it on her own and it means either Andy or I have to go with her. We were all exhausted by the end of it, but they had a great time. As we were leaving Holly’s balloon floated to the top of the ceiling and Alice instantly said to her ‘we can share mine Holly’, she wasn’t prompted it was a really sweet moment between sisters.
This week I shared a very personal post on my blog, the most honest post that I’ve written and I was overwhelmed by the support and the messages that I received. I had a few readers contact me to tell me how much my post meant to them and helped them be more honest with their struggles. It’s moments like this that I feel proud of my blog and that it really can make a difference to other people.
Holly and I met our friends at the local gymnastics, where they have an open play session. Holly loves it and I was really impressed that she managed to walk along the low beam all on her own, with her arms out wide. We might have to sign her up!
This week I reached not one, but two milestones on my social media channels. Over on Instagram I hit 4,000 followers, which I am delighted about, as it’s not an easy one to crack. Then a couple of days later I hit 5,000 followers on twitter, which feels like a big milestone to reach. It’s really lovely when you hit these little milestones, even it does mean you are instantly on the chase for the next one.
Tonight (Friday), I am going out for a friend’s birthday and I am really looking forward to it. I haven’t been out for a while and I can’t wait to eat some lovely food and have a good chat. I really need to make more of an effort to do this.
This weekend we are busy getting the attic sorted and Alice is off to a magic themed birthday party on Sunday, which she is very excited about. I hope you have a lovely weekend.
