Time for some happy in my #HighlightsofHappy #21

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 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?  

Being focussed on my goals for 2017.  I don’t do new year’s resolutions but I do focus on achievable goals… It works for me 🙂

For an emotional daughter being able to talk to me.  Sometimes, they just need to talk it out and then have lots of cuddles too…

For being able to go to our girl’s school Christmas production.  She’s narrator, though she’d much rather be in the choir…

For a lovely, random trip to London – specifically Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.  I posted on instagram one of the highlights..

What a wonderful time we had at the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland over the weekend! It was a very random trip. “Let’s go to Winter Wonderland”, we said. And within the hour we were on a train and having a lovely family day out! All the nicer because it was so random, I think. Just look at these lights (though my photography skills certainly don’t do them justice!). Oh and just for the record, a stall inside did the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had. So smooth and well, chocolatey! So often it can just be dirty water at these events! Well worth going back to @winterwonderldn next year!

For the smoothest, most velvety hot chocolate ever… at the Winter Wonderland.  Yum!

That our daughter bought home ‘the box’.  Each week, a child in her class gets to take it home to pop a few things inside, then they talk about them in class.  She’s been waiting since September to get the box and was so very excited!  Who knew a box could bring so much joy?… 🙂

For getting Christmas sorted, including the tree…

‘tis the season… Our daughter has been asking to decorate the tree since November! Finally, today after school, she posted her letter to Father Christmas and then she decorated! We promised she could do it on 1st December… I watched and soaked up the magic while she did it herself and only helped for the higher branches. What I love is the memories that come back of when I used to decorate our family tree. So many happy memories. We have a couple of pictures of her on the home-made pre-school and school decs – she’s changed so much and yet has stayed exactly the same. She’s still beautiful, of course! On another note, I wonder how long til the cats start sniffing around it…! . . #HighlightsofHappy #MyHappyCapture #LifeCloseUp #TheMagicinEveryday #LittleFierceOnes #FamilyFun #makemesmile #happy #happinesseverywhere #capturingtheday #capturemypositive #happylittlebuttons #mydarlingmemory #Christmas #Tistheseason #decorating #feelingfestive #happymemories #deckthehalls

Yes, we’re organised and have just got to wait for a few deliveries… and then relax!


So that’s my happy this week and my happy word is ‘box’ because a little (well, shoebox sized!) cardboard box brought so much joy to our house this week! 🙂

And although my word wasn’t ‘Christmas’, here’s a little vid of the nativity scene our daughter set up at the bottom of our tree…


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!

  1. Love your happy list and so glad that getting to take home the box made your daughter so happy. I love the nativity scene at the bottom of the tree and Winter Wonderland sounds amazing – we went about six years ago and now I’m tempted to try and go there again! 🙂 #WotW

  2. I do enjoy reading your posts, they’re always so upbeat and happy!
    How lovely to have a random trip to London and to visit the Winter Wonderland – and how beautiful is the instagram photo.

    It’s great that you had an emotional talk with your daughter, it’s so important that they feel they have someone to talk to/who listens to them. You should been happy and proud of that relationship, right there!

    Looks like you’re really into the Christmas spirit – enjoy!

    PS; sorry the comment is so late, it’s been one of those weeks!
