Time for some happy in my #HighlightsofHappy #13

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 will 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 will then round it off with one word that sums up my happy.

So, what am I happy and grateful for this week?  

I gave a compliment to a friend and told her that she always looked so positive and full of life.  It turned out that she felt quite rubbish from a bad infection but my kind words really lifted her and I’m grateful I could do that.

My thoughtful hubby did the food shopping and cooked tea. It was very much appreciated after a busy day.

Our girl wrote a couple of poems inspired by Roald Dahl for her homework (with a special mention for The BFG!).  They were really very good and make me smile 🙂

After school one day, our girl showed me some magic tricks and games.  It as great fun and was another thing that made me grateful this week.

After saying for a while that she would like to play the guitar, we bought our daughter a second hand child’s guitar.  Seeing her tinkering away made me very emotional.  She suits it very well and I shared a pic on instagram.  I’ve made a pact with her to practice my cords with her!

My Dad popped round to see us all and we were chatting about days gone by, about people we knew that made us laugh.  It was great to share memories and that’s good enough for a smile for me!

And when he came to see us, he left the car round the corner at the shops.  It was spitting with rain when he arrived and when he left a short while later, it was much heavier!  We offered to lend him our daughter’s pink princess brolly… and off went, walking down the street carrying a pink, see-through princess umbrella.  Giggles all around 🙂

So my happy word this week is ‘umbrella’ because I was grateful that I captured it too!

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. What a lovely list of happy things. My son has just started guitar lessons. The image of the pink umbrella is perfect. My eldest keeps a gratitude journal too. It always lifts her mood when she needs it. May your week continue to be happy. (I can confirm that happy things come in threes. I have three children and they make me happy!) #wotw

  2. Lovely list of happy things this week, your daughter sounds like she’s been busy it’s great when they show an interest in music and writing isn’t it. I had to giggle at the thought of your Dad with that umbrella. #WotW

  3. I love these, but especially the first point about commenting positively on something re someone else because you don’t know how much they might be needing that today.

  4. What a happy post & great list of happy things – you paint a funny picture with your Dad and the umbrella! Funny!
    I hadn’t thought about a gratitude journal before, good idea.
    I hope this week is just as happy!
