Today represents TWO YEARS of #projecthappy! *happy dance*
When I first started photographing the ordinary everyday little moments that make me happy as a 100-day-experiment to see if it positively impacted on my mood, I never in a million years thought that I’d still be doing it two years later. As silly as it sounds, I’m really proud of myself for my commitment to this – it’s become such a natural part of my daily life now that it would feel odd not to do it. There have been days where I’ve had too many things to choose from, and other days where I’ve really struggled to find anything good (and have learnt that there’s always a moment of light in the darkness somewhere if you look hard enough).
I can’t wait to find out what the next 365 days will bring…
Day 722: Today would have been my Dad’s 65th birthday. I was so very glad to have a yoga class today, and it was exactly what I needed. Daffodils were his favourite flowers and orange was his favourite colour, so I bought these on my way home.
Day 723: Pumpkin’s scar is almost completely healed now and his fur is beginning to grow back. He hasn’t limped for a couple of weeks now and although he still sits with his leg out at an odd angle, the vet is really pleased with how well he’s doing.
Day 724: The girls begged to look through their memory boxes this morning. They get so excited over seeing ultrasound pictures from when they were in my tummy, the outfits I bought them home from the hospital in and their baby books. We spent a good hour and a half going through everything and it was lovely to spend that time together, telling them stories and reminiscing. It was also a good distraction from today being the one year anniversary of my Dad’s funeral.
Day 725: We took advantage of the sunshine today and headed to Trentham Gardens. We walked around the lake, had lunch in one of the cafes and the girls played on the adventure playground. It felt good to be outside.
Day 730: This morning I went to a Mother’s Day Assembly and my littlest girl read out a poem then made a heart shape out of her hands and blew me a kiss. Then this afternoon I got my eldest girl home from her school trip. She was absolutely exhausted but chattered away about what she’d got up to.
