This is my first blog post linking with Seven Cherubs Happy Days in May Project, and it couldn’t be better timed. The Drama Queen has had a sad day. She’s not sure why, but everything has been a bit of a challenge, and as she is prone to a bit of over dramatisation, we have seen some spectacular tantrums. We sat down and had a girly chat tonight about happiness and how she was the only one who could decide if she was going to be happy. When I told her that if it was up to me I would make every day a happy one for her, she informed me, with her infinite four year old wisdom, that not every day could be a happy one. She went on to tell me that you had to have days that were sad, angry, happy, really really mad, and that some days would just be love. She is a wise old soul in a very young body.
The idea of the Happy Days in May Project is that you choose a time each day and write a sentence about what has made you happy that day. You can check out the project here, and it’s never too late to give it a go. Here’s my first few days
1 May – Finally managed to get the tax documents to the accountant – Massive tick off the to do list and weight off the shoulders, Yay me!
2 May – Listened to a sparkling rendition of Happy Birthday sung by the Drama Queen to Nanna Mon – She was so happy to hear from us and have a good chat, I’m so lucky to still have such a wonderful grandmother
3 May – Chocolate cake – are there any two words that could make you happier??
4 May – The Daredevil is a super fish – he loves swimming, and Mr Perfect loves taking him – I love watching!
5 May – Love when family gets together, lunch, drinks, old family and new friend? Happy that everyone is happy. (cryptic much?)
6 May – Sunshine, lollypops and rainbows everywhere, everything is wonderful when we’re together – had a really nice family afternoon in the sun and the park.
I doesn’t take much to keep me happy! What made you happy this week?
