Missed yesterday. Not that it wasn’t a lovely day, I just forgot to post a photo for my #100happydays project. So here it is; #dayten. And the pure childish joy that comes from my first ice-cream in a cone in over six (or is it seven?) years! I found #glutenfree #waffle #cones at the #health #food #store. Topped with a #scoop of #caramel #icecream, it was pure bliss! #ItsTheLittleThings

Feeling like a kid in a candy shop! My #Christmas present just arrived. It took me months to choose which one I wanted and then took almost a month for it to arrive. But it’s here! Guess what I’m doing next week (after I get my butt in gear and do our taxes)? #100happydays #daynine #pfaff #sewingmachine #present #christmas #belated #squeeeee #sewingnerd #nannahobbies #wanttoplaynow

Sneak peek: next weeks Easter themed template. I didn’t get much I intended done today. But I did get this little guy finished! Now I’ve just got to take some decent photos of him for the blog. #easterdecoration #easter #packaging #milk #carton #bunny #rabbit #template #tutorial #blog #sneakpeek

Today was a mix of happy and stressful. 3+ hours of a crying, screaming Munchkin as she’s teething (keep your fingers crossed for us that some finally cut through?) Vs coffee and gluten-free cake with a friend, and time to work on a new tutorial to go up on the blog! #100happydays #dayfive #munchkin #baby #blue #sixmonths #whatareyoudoingmummy #isitedible #canichewonit #iphonesaredelicious #notateethingtoy

I hate Mondays. My playmate (husband) goes to work and I make breakfast and stare at the long week ahead wondering how I’ll make it through the week with no-one to talk to during the day but a six month old. Then I pull out my diary, see that I’ve arranged a visit or coffee with a friend every day this week, except today. I instantly feel a bit better, and complete cheering myself up by working on a project, playing with Munchkin, making myself a coffee and eating too many Lindt mini Easter eggs. Buying them as table decoration was a really bad idea. #100happydays #Dayfour

Fruit printables

Very cool fruit printables

I don’t often share the work of others on this blog. But now and then I stumble across something that I can’t resist sharing with you, this is one of those things!

I haven’t made these paper pieces of fruit… yet. Primarily because Munchkin still has a habit of making papier mâché out of everything she can get her hands on. But they’re splendid!

I can’t help but think they’d make fabulous…

#Daythree in my #100happydays project. It’s Sunday. Sundays are always splendid. We’ve usually got all the chores done for the week and we take it slow. Sleep in as long as Munchkin will let us, play with her loads, have a cooked breakfast (today was decadent- gluten-free crepes with jam and Gruyere double cream), cook for the week (we’ve made Bolognese sauce ,a pumpkin, carrot and leek soup and will have a lamb roast for dinner) and take a small excursion. Today’s was curtailed by the discovery that the spa I’m a member of doesn’t let children under the age of three in their pool within the family hours. So we’re having a super relaxed day. I’m doing stitching, DM is reading for his thesis (he’s enjoying it as it’s something he’s really interested in) and Munchkin is playing and laughing whilst occasionally trying to roll over. She’s so close! So… yet again- today = happy!

I’m participating in 100 Happy Days. Where I and many others share one thing every day for 100 days that makes me (us) happy. Today, these little shoes made me happy. Not the buying of them (yes, I thoroughly enjoyed it ;)), but the 50 minutes alone time that they represent. My husband worked from home and so was able to keep an eye on a napping Munchkin whilst I raced into the city to do some errands. I was able to walk on and off the bus without pushing the ‘pram alert’ button, could ride the escalators instead of waiting for the insanely slow elevators and could walk at a decent pace and through narrow walkways without having to manhandle the fabulous but enormous pram. I enjoyed every minute of it. This was then followed by lunch all together at our favourite Indian restaurant and an afternoon where both DM and I worked on respective projects whilst keeping an eye on Munchkin. We’ve just fed, bathed, read a story and put her to bed and we’re about to cook a chicken laksa for dinner together. Days like this make me exceedingly happy. #100happydays #dayone

It’s World Down Syndrome Day. They’re raising awareness by asking all to wear different socks for a change. Munchkin and I are participating. I’ve a case of sock envy! I’m wearing one beige and one black as I only have boring socks #WDSD #DifferentSocksForAChange #spots #stripes #baby #munchkin #ActuallyIUsuallyJustBorrowMyHusbandsSocks #ThinkINeedToBuySomeForMyself
