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!)

…so what’s been making ME happy?

I saw our daughter cheerleading and they did so well!  She absolutely loves dancing and singing, much like any other 7 year old.  And now she wants to do the club again next term, so we’ve put her name and down and will find out in a couple of weeks…  oh and of course she had an ice cream afterwards just because!

For cuddles after tea with my beautiful girl.  I’m very aware that she’s literally growing before my very eyes both emotionally and physically.  So any opportunity that I get, I’m downing tools where possible for cuddles.  I’m savouring these cuddles and feeling the love with every ounce of my soul 🙂

A lovely warm bath… such a simple thing but you know those moments where the temperature is *just* right and you can get straight in.  That!

We’ve got a holiday on the horizon and I’m so ready for a break!  Bliss!

Our girl won a prize in the easter egg decorating comp at school and she was so chuffed!

and this…

On our walk home from school, I saw a penny, picked it up and said I’d pop it in the charity box in the shop.  But we had literally walked past charity shop.  Quick as a flash, our daughter kindly suggested we pop in there instead.  So we did and I was so proud of her generosity.  A penny isn’t much to adults perhaps, but to a 7 year old, it’s money and more importantly, it’s been given to charity.

We squeezed in a trip to the cinema to see Beauty and the Beast at the weekend.  It was either then or May because it’s all booked up!  The local cinema had been refurbed a while ago but none of us had been since.  It’s so nice to be able to recline and made our daughter’s first cinema experience so nice.  She loved the film and of course the popcorn!  I wrote a little fiction piece for The Prompt which was inspired by Beauty and the Beast ~ Ready to bloom again?

After the cinema and a quick bite to eat, we picked up her friend for the much-anticipated sleepover.  They had a brilliant time and it was lovely to hear them giggling away with their ‘midnight’ snacks!


So that’s my happy and my happy word is ‘cinema’ and I’ve no idea how I’ve managed to choose just one word this week!  But it was the first time going for our girl and we were both so very excited that it’s surely a memory that will stay with us both.  And that’s what matters 🙂 

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 🙂

  1. Ah, that’s a lovely choice of word! Both of my kids love going to the cinema, and I took my son just this week. They’re both excited to be going next week to see Beauty and the Beast with their grandparents. Well done to your girl for her performance and egg! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  2. A cinema trip is on the cards for us at Easter too but it’s a toss up between power rangers and beauty and the beast. It’d make everyone very happy if we did both!! #wotw

  3. The cheerleading sounds like a lot of fun and well done to your girl in the Easter egg comp. She sounds like a very thoughtful girl. So kind of her to donate to charity.
    We’re planning to see Beauty and the beast over the holidays.

  4. I still try to nab as many cuddles as possible from my youngest before bed. He’s 13 so not sure how much longer it will last. I think I’m lucky I got this far because his big sister stopped being cuddly around the age of 8 I think.

  5. I still haven’t seen Beauty & The Beast – I fear it may be on DVD before I manage it!! That is so lovely that she wanted to give to charity like that, what a sweetheart. Thank you for sharing in #HappyDaysLinky x
