THE past month I’ve been taking part in Naomi from Seven Cherubs’ Happiness Project. The idea was each day to record and write one sentence on what has made me feel happy or grateful during that day.
What do you think? Do I have much to be grateful for? Well, a tidy house, at least.
April 10: After a total two hours sleep last night, I was thankful for an afternoon nap.
April 11: Playing finger puppets with Pinky the Elephant, who masterfully got Ella dressed, fed and hair done without pain for childcare today.
April 12: The house is tidy.
Apirl 13: It’s days like these I’m extra glad I started blogging – wearing the most gorgeous pair of shoes and organising a super huge giveaway with the company who made them.
April 14: Watched Ella play with her two Sydney cousins who she doesn’t see very often.
April 15: Apparently, my poor li’l bubba is hungry, which is why she won’t settle to sleep and wakes hourly. Thank heavens for my child health nurse.
April 16: Picnic at the park with good food, my wonderful family on the most gorgeous Autumn day. Bliss.
April 17: The house… clean.
April 16: Was asked today: “do you know I really, really love you, mama?’’. Nothing beats that.
April 17: Landed another PR job – such a wonderful feeling.
April 19: Won a Minnie Masquerade DVD from Caz at The Truth About Mummy – am Ella’s best friend at the moment. Hehe!
April 20: Enjoyed five minutes of peace with a cup of Chai Station chai tea. Wish for more moments like these.
April 21: Glad to hear a spark in my brother’s voice after ringing him for his birthday. Poor bugger witnessed something rather traumatic last week.
April 22: Watching Ella playing chasings with her Sydney cousin, who she hasn’t seen in a long time.
April 23: Eating hubby’s Choccie Hot Cross Bun and Butter Pudding (probably won’t be so grateful for this later on).
April 24: Easter. Chocolate. Now that’s pure happiness.
April 25: The house is tidy. For a while, at least.
April 26: Ella made me a bracelet out of pipe cleaners and beads. So thoughtful.
April 27: Feeling inspired (and extremely chuffed) after reading a beautiful email from a reader about my blog writing.
April 28: Three and four-hour lots of sleep last night. It’s been a long, long time.
April 29: Had a fabulous time at the Royal Wedding Pyjama Part-ay and met the loveliest bunch of mums. Haven’t laughed that hard in ages.
April 30: Having my hair done… finally. Goodbye silver highlights; hello younger woman.
May 1: I can see the laundry floor.
May 2: Went to the doctor to discover Baby Holly’s arm (which looks as if it’s dislocated) should be fine.
May 3: Scored the most incredible media interviews for one of my clients today. So thrilled.
May 4: Loving this clean house today.
May 5: Just bought a new car (Nissan Dualis Ti – hopefully) with someone else’s money.
May 6: Love watching the Bloke in The Shed play with the girls on his first day of holidays.
May 7: Got out of the house.
May 9: Had a wonderful chat to Alli from Motivating Mum and feel extremely inspired about starting the PR blog/business.
May 10: Reading through my Happiness Project 30-day task I realise I have so much to be happy about and grateful for. Blessed am I. (Oh, and so grateful to Naomi for letting me take part).
What moment made you happy today?
