Highlightsofhappy Virtuallyallsorts Blog Linky Positive Thinking Gratitude Focus Happy Happiness Highlights Of Happy 40 Interaction Family Friends

Your weekly dose of happiness…

Let’s spread the happiness!

It’s a common phrase isn’t it?…

“Bad things come in 3’s”

or words similar to that!

So, let’s flip it because everyone deserves a little happiness … (you know how I love to spread happiness and turn a negative into a positive with positive thinking !)

Let’s spread that happiness and find 3 things to be grateful for (or even more… well, why not?!)

In my weekly feature, I look back over my gratitude journal because that’s the great thing about gratitude and using my gratitude journal – it gives me the opportunity to look back and be grateful all over again 🙂  And that’s what I do here, in my weekly feature, I look back and on my #HighlightsofHappy.

I round it off with one word that sums up my happy…  why not do the same?

If you’re a blogger, why not share your happy post from the last week or so in the linky below?

If you’re on instagram, why not tag your happy snap #HighlightsofHappy and link up your pic in the linky below?

If you’re on twitter, why not tweet your happy with #HighlightsofHappy ?

If you’re all 3, why not do all 3??  The linky is below. (To link your insta happy snap, simply click on your insta pic, copy the url and paste into the linky tool!)

(If you join in with my #HighlightsofHappy community on instagram, I post up my favourite snaps every Monday on instagram.)


…so what’s been making ME happy?

 It’s a week that I’ve definitely had to look in my little notebook because it seems to have passed by in a bit of a blur!  It’s so lovely to have a long bank holiday weekend but I’ve no idea what day it is!  But yes, I’m grateful for a long weekend!
The weekend included time with family.  There’s nothing quite like enjoying yummy, home cooked food and watching your daughter spend time with her cousins.  Double win!

and this…

For discovering that our daughter’s friend didn’t like what I had planned for tea when I picked them up from school…  I thought I’d checked but must have misheard.  Freezer to the rescue because I’d gone to pick them up from school with no purse and couldn’t pop to the shop on the way home!  And thank goodness for fish fingers.  The other option was burgers, so I was quite surprised that her friend doesn’t like them and grateful that the burgers were cook from frozen and weren’t defrosted already!

Seeing our daughter interact with various friends she has over to play after school and in the holidays is really interesting.  They’re all lovely friends and all have different personalities and our girl tends to interact slightly differently with them all but is always herself – as far as growing up and learning socially as a 7 year old can allow you to be.  I’m grateful that she has lots of lovely friends.  Perhaps they’ll all be at secondary school together.  Time will tell!

So that’s my happy and my happy word is ‘interaction’ because there’s been a lot of interaction this week due to that long weekend, seeing family and friends.  Perfect word!

How about you?  I’d love to hear about your ‘happy’ in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere using #HighlightsofHappy

Go on, share your happy with me!

Thanks 🙂

In my weekly feature, I look back over my gratitude journal and bring to you my #HighlightsofHappy , which is great because it gives me the opportunity to look back and be grateful all over again 🙂

I round it off with one word that sums up my happy…

(and don’t forget that you can join in with my #HighlightsofHappy on instagram linky and community.  I post up my favourite snaps every Monday and a new instagram linky goes live every Monday too!  Link up to the latest post here!)

…so what’s made me happy this week?

It’s a bumper load of happy this time!  Not least because I’ve had a break for a couple of weeks and it’s ‘built up’ but because this week alone has been amazing!  The good feeling’s flowing because…

of food with my amazing family.

of watching our daughter dance, dance, dance along to her disco light that she got for Christmas!

of my new gratitude journal.

of getting my workspace sorted out.

of sitting and watching a film with hubby and our daughter.

of candles and music.

of getting out of the house into the bracing, fresh air.

of the shops being shut!  On new years day there was only shop open in our little town and it made such a refreshing change on a holiday day.  It’s very rare and signified a nice, chilled out day.

of being (very nearly) clutter free!

of a lovely relationship with my daughter.

of seeing her get excited when she entered a magazine competition.

of seeing our girl with her great grandparents.

of doing yoga and feeling the benefit.

For a lovely phone call from school to say that our girl is going to receive a Head Teacher’s award.  She’s going to receive it in assembly on Friday and both hubby and I are going.  She doesn’t know she’s got an award yet and I’ve been bursting to tell her!  The pride is currently resonating off me 🙂

For doing Cosmic Kids yoga with our girl, at her request.  A lovely moment which I hope to be a regular thing.

So that’s my happy this week and my happy word is ‘family’.  It could have been proud or happy or relaxed or even busy but it’s family because it’s so, so nice to be with mine!

How about you?  I’d love to hear about your ‘happy’ in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere using #HighlightsofHappy

Go on, share your happy with me!

Thanks 🙂

Time for some happy in my #HighlightsofHappy #18

It’s a common phrase isn’t it?…

Bad things come in 3’s

or words similar to that!

Let’s find 3 things to be happy and grateful for!

3-is-it-your-magic-number-highlights-of-happy-18-gratitude-journal-grateful-happiness-positivity-positive-thinking-cousins

In my new weekly feature, I look back over my gratitude journal and bring to you my #HighlightsofHappy , which is great because it gives me the opportunity to look back and be grateful all over again 🙂

I round it off with one word that sums up my happy…

…so what’s made me happy this week?  You can find out by watching my short vlog or read the words below 🙂

Time with hubby ~ chocolate, TV and just chilling.  Lovely 🙂

Making bracelets with our daughter.  One of my favourite times with her is when she/we are ‘making’.

Playing with our daughter ~ animal i-spy.  When you play this game on a daily basis, it becomes something of a challenge due to the limited amount of animals you can name with something beginning with “_”.  But I’m determined to enjoy these games because I know she won’t want to play them forever…

More chocolate but all for me this time!  A new discovery that is fast becoming my favourite.  For UK readers, if you haven’t tried the Co-op Fairtrade milk chocolate with Himalayan salt and caramel… try it!

Being cosy when it’s raining outside. I love autumn but nothing beats a bit of hygge cosiness 🙂

Seeing the funny side of life.  I’ve had a few moments that have made me see the funny side and for that I’m very grateful.

A good sort out in our daughter’s room, resulting in a couple of bags to the charity shop.  De-cluttering and sorting.  Bliss!

Time with cousins.  When our girl gets together with her cousins, it’s just beautiful to see.  They all gel so well together.  She loves them and they love her.

Oh and mince pies.  But these are no ordinary mince pies.  For UK readers again – try Sainsburys mince pies.  They are amaaazing!

So that’s my happy this week and my happy word is ‘cousins’ because they all just ‘click’ 🙂

How about you?  I’d love to hear about your ‘happy’ in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere using #HighlightsofHappy

Go on, share your happy with me!

Thanks 🙂

Time for some happy in my #HighlightsofHappy #17

It’s a common phrase isn’t it?…

Bad things come in 3’s

or words similar to that!

So, let’s flip it (you know how I love to turn a negative into a positive!)

Let’s find 3 things to be happy and grateful for!

(or even more… I mean, why not?!)

In my new weekly feature, I look back over my gratitude journal and bring to you my #HighlightsofHappy , which is great because it gives me the opportunity to look back and be grateful all over again 🙂

I round it off with one word that sums up my happy…

…so what’s made me happy this week?  You can find out by watching my short vlog or read the words below 🙂

Our local community arranged a fireworks display the night the clocks went back (this has snuck into this week’s HOH post!)  It was like a mini fairground and the fireworks were amazing 🙂

We took advantage of a meal deal for a fiver.  Just heat the oven, cook and eat.  A yummy, scrummy, bargain!

Our cat got into a fight and definitely came off worse.  We’ve had to be very careful with handling/stroking her this week.  This has upset our daughter a bit because they’re used to their cuddles  but on the positive side, she’s shown patience, compassion and love towards her cat.  Pets are so good for our children (and us!)

We popped along to a local outlet and stumbled upon some country gardens which our girl loved exploring.  Just beautiful!

We had a big tidying up and de-cluttering session after half term.  Bliss!

Mum took our daughter to a party when myself and hubby weren’t able to.  So grateful!

Our daughter was excited about donating money for a poppy wristband at school.  And the discussion this generated about the Poppy Appeal.  It’s tricky to explain it to a 7 year old but she seems to understand the concept.

A year after she started at a her new school, seeing how our daughter has settled in, hearing her teacher say she’s ‘delightful’ and is thriving, hearing her talk about her new friends, having some round for tea after school and above all, seeing her happy.  It’s a cliche but it makes us happy!

So that’s my happy this week and it’s been another one where it’s been so difficult to choose but ‘garden’ is my happy word because of the family time it brought 🙂

How about you?  I’d love to hear about your ‘happy’ in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere using #HighlightsofHappy

Go on, share your happy with me!

Thanks 🙂
