Happy Days #14

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

Out and About

What is with this weather? It’s so cold and wet! We did however sign Aidan up for school (for 2019) and went to my Nan’s to celebrate her 77th birthday. My little cousin got her an exercise ball (as a joke) – which A had a ball on. He spent the entire time blowing bubbles back at everyone and playing with balloons.

Yesterday I went to Clonmel to book a hotel for a family getaway in June, by family I mean 33 of us! It’s for my granddad’s 80th birthday – but shh it’s a surprise.

Fun at Home

At home has been less than fun, after reading that the ‘ideal age’ to take your baby’s dummy away is 6 months I decided to take Aidan’s. I will do a post on how exactly it all went down but let’s say it’s not ‘fun at home’.

I did however start my #postcircle group, which if you don’t know is a snail mail/ penal group. I sent and received my first letters this week which is super exciting for a stationary addict like myself. Although, I am lacking in comparison to some others in the group whose collections have me in awe.

Blog Life

This week I appeared on the front page of Mumsnet, crazy I know! I was so excited when I got the twitter notification I was almost lost for words (almost!).

Time for Me

If you follow me on instagram you may have seen my recent Yankee Candle store haul which included some bath bombs – wow! Where have bath bombs been all my life?

I also got a lie in this morning and am now getting breakfast in bed while I write this (I don’t know how I pulled this one off? Is there a match on tonight or something?)

Happiest Moment

Real Life: Spending my Nan’s birthday with all my family.

Blog Life: Being on the front page of Mumsnet of course!

Next Week I would like to…

be packing my bags for Bluestones. We will hopefully be going there the first week in February.


*Sorry for the lack of pictures it’s mainly been a wicked Wednesday type of week*

  2. What a lovely week you’ve had 🙂 What’s #postcircle group? Congratulations on being on the front page of Mumsnet; you must be super chuffed! And my, how intriguing it is to watch a little child’s fascination with bubles and balloons! Thanks for sharing your week. #HappyDaysLinky

  3. A big well done for being on the front page of Mumsnet – great blogging achievement and loved your post. Aidan sounds like he had a fab time at your Nan’s birthday party and love the sound of breakfast in bed – will have to drop hints to my hubby and see if he will do the same sometime! 🙂

  4. I’m so happy for you for getting front page of Mumsnet, that amazing! We are going to Bluestone’s in May, I’m looking forward to reading about your trip!
    Also I’m very jealous of your lie in and breakfast in bed!!

  5. Sounds like you’ve had an awesome week. Congratulations on being on the front of mums net! That’s brilliant! Breakfast in bed?? What’s that?! Lol…..lucky you!

  6. Huge congrats for being on the front page of Mumsnet, that’s so exciting!
    It sounds like you and Aidan have had a lovely week with family. Sorry to hear that you’ve had a #wicked type of week at home, you are brave for taking the dummy away though (we haven’t done it yet).
    I hope you have a good week and get your break at Bluestone sorted xx

  7. Yay, well done for being on the front page of Mumsnet. It’s such a good feeling, isn’t it? 🙂
    It was a fab post so thoroughly well deserved. I’m sure it won’t be the last time either.

    Breakfast in bed? I am very jealous. The ‘Is the a match on’ comment made me laugh though!

    Sorry, taking Aidan’s dummy off him hasn’t gone so well. The longer you leave it, the harder it gets though so you are doing the right thing.

    Thanks for joining in with our #HappyDaysLinky

    1. Yeah it’s amazing! Thank you 🙂
      No match he just wanted to nap for the evening – I knew there had to be something!
      Yeah better to do it now when he easily forgets things – can’t figure out how to get it from him at bedtime though xx

  8. That post was fab and well deserving of the front page!
    Ohhhhh you were brave taking the dummy away- I always said I would take it away at 3 months…… then 6 months….. well we are now at 13 months haha!
    Thanks for joining in our #HappyDaysLinky xx
