Happy Days #15

As always I am linking up with Jenna and Katy the lovely hosts of the Happy Days linky.

Out and About

I didn’t venture too far out this week. We went to visit my Mom and my Nan but that’s about the extent of it. Aidan however went on some walks with his Dad this week which was nice for me to actually get some stuff done. Aidan is going through a leap and he’s become very clingy and will only nap for 20 minutes during the day meaning he is super sleepy and moody by 5:30.

Only happy within arms reach of Mommy


Fun at Home

Our day seem to consist mainly of Mickey Mouse. It is the only thing Aidan will attempt to crawl towards. Well, that and the fire but obviously we don’t encourage that one! We have Mickey on TV, two Mickey teddies, several items of Mickey clothing. Honestly, I’m tempted to call ‘Oh, Toodles’ in hopes of a cup of tea.

Watching Mickey. Cuddling Mickey. Wearing Mickey.

I baked an cake this week too with a hint of orange through it and chocolate orange frosting. It didn’t last long enough to get a picture but I might make it again just so I can photograph it and post the recipe. All for you guys of course.. I don’t even like cake.

Cake anyone?



I got a delivery from Childs Farm too. Oh look at it! I will be posting the Shampoo and Conditioner review soon. It has done wonders for my psoriasis and it smells so good I get hungry – hence the cake!

Childs Farm goodies!



I also ordered a personalised blanket for Aidan for out trip to Wales. I can’t wait for it to get here it looks so warm and cosy. I may have to ‘borrow’ it from time to time.

Blog Life

After 5 months I have finally decided on a header! I tried so many types and overtime I would see another bloggers header I would get header envy (yes yours Jenna!) and would try use similar themes. After many, many headers I finally decided to make a simple one and get someone to design me a header but I absolutely love my new header. I’ve plastered it all over my social media sites and colour coordinated accordingly. I think my star is here to stay.

Time for Me

I napped for 20 minutes the other day while Aidan napped does that count? No? Again this week I have been pretty bad at the ‘me time’. Luckily Clayton’s got some holidays coming soon so I will get some time to chill then.

Happiest Moment

Real Life: Hearing Aidan beginning to speak.. we get ‘baba’ but only when he feels like it. Which one day this week was for a full 11 hours – delightful 🙂

Still manages a smile with those terrible teething cheeks

Next Week I would like to…

get Aidan back into his napping routine so that he isn’t so distressed by dinner time. Schedule some blog posts for the week while I’m away. Find the best sea sickness tablets there is because 4 hours on a ferry sounds like hell to me right now!

  1. Hope you enjoy your trip to Wales and the ferry journey isn’t too unpleasant for you. I found seabands really helped me. Love your happiest moment this week and your new blog header. Hope Aidan is more settled next week – it is hard when they are clinging and grumpy and teething is not fun at the best of times. The photo of him wearing Mickey and holding Mickey is just adorable.

  2. I second Louise’s seabands suggestion!

    I love your new header! (btw I have serious header envy for Jenna’s new header too).

    Gorgeous photos of Aidan. He’s a proper cutie even with his rosy cheeks. I hope he finishes this clingy phase soon and that you get a chance for some me time this week. Vx

  3. Oh he looks so cute with all the Mickey things! I am jealous of all those Childs farm products, it smells lovely!
    Have a great time in Wales, i can’t wait to read all about it!
    (also can you send me a cake?!)

  4. Ohhh we love Childs Farm products. 🙂

    I love your new header, it feels good when you finally decide on one. I think I had as many headers under my belt as I had months blogging which is just crazy. Glad to have finally one I’m happy with.

    Hope Aidan is feeling more himself again soon. Leaps can be so tough.
